It would be hard to imagine not having an inverter. When we were originally equipping this boat… sine wave inverters were very costly… which is why we chose a square wave unit like this. It provides 1800 watts and powers everything we need powered… with one exception… our jig saw. The saw requires sine wave power.
Some inverters are combined with the battery charger. We made the choice of having a separate battery charger. This has turned out to be ideal for us… as now we can be charging the boat on 220v and still create 110v as required.
