• What is an RV inverter charger?

    An RV inverter charger, or can be called an RV or car charger inverter, the device combines the function of an inverter and a power converter. The charger can convert DC power into AC to charge daily appliances as an inverter, furthermore, it can also work as a converter that converts AC power into DC that charges your house battery.

  • Can I replace my converter with an inverter charger??

    Replacing the converter with a charger inverter can be an effective way to improve your RV solar system, which can help you save energy and also protect your system from unforeseen spikes in voltage.
    An RV converter converts the AC power into DC that charges your battery system, thus you will be able to have power no need to connect your RV to the electrical grid. However, if you would like to run the daily appliances in your RV, you will also need an inverter that converts the DC power stored in your battery to AC then charing your AC households by the inverter. The benefits of the inverter charger are that it combines the two devices mentioned before and also the automatic transfer relay all in one. The inverter chargers can provide more efficient power, and use less energy to achieve the same level of charge than using multiple devices.

  • Do I need a charge controller if I have an inverter charger?

    Yes. The inverter charger can convert AC power into DC to charge deep-cycle batteries and convert DC power stored in the batteries into AC for daily appliances. By contrast, a charge controller is used to charge deep cycle batteries from the power generated by solar panels and prevent the current from draining back into the panels' array at night. A regular RV or marine solar system requires both the inverter charger and the charge controller. Choosing a good charge controller can optimize charging efficiency, but the power generated by the panels will be affected by bad weather, in winter or rainy and cloudy weather, the solar panels will get less sunlight and produce less energy. In addition, most of the daily households you use in your RV or marine require AC power. Adding an inverter charger can keep your batteries adequately charged even when the power provided by the solar panels is limited, and it also can provide energy suitable for a wider of uses and equipment.
