I get many questions at Outside Supply about the best power inverter for your car. Well there are many answers to this question. This is because so many people use power inverter for so many different reasons in their car.
We have customers who use power inverters to run 32" Dual Screen Xbox Gaming systems in a Ford excursion to customers who simply want to power a laptop in a Burger shop parking lot. While others want to run an oxygen concentrator to reduce extra oxygen bottles on a trip.
So as you can see the applications for power inverters change widely even though the items are all used in a car.
We do have a general guide to follow to help you choose the best power inverter for your application. If you can answer the following questions about the power inverter needed for your car, you can best pick the inverter to install:
