  • What Deep Cycle Battery is Needed to Run 450 Watt Appliances for 7 Hours with Inverter # WC3720
    You will need a deep cycle battery with a capacity of at least 315 amp hours to run 450 watts of power for 7 hours. If you check on page 7 of the linked instructions for the Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720 it states to divide the amount of watts you are using by 10 (450/10 = 45) and then multiply that by the amount of hours you need them to last (7) which then gives you the amount of amp hours your battery needs to be (45 x 7 = 315). As noted in the instructions...

  • Which Power Inverter For Running Laster Printer In Car
    The power consumption of a laser printer can vary considerably from unit to unit, but the documentation that came with your printer should list the specific power requirements. From my research, I found that the typical home-use laser printer will use between 300 and 550 watts when printing. Given that, the Wagen # WC3720 1000 watt power inverter would be the perfect choice, as it's never a bad idea to have a little more capacity than you actually need. I've linked you to a product demonstration...

  • How to Determine Correct DC to AC Inverter Power Rating for 800-Watt Load
    It is never an ideal situation to use a device continually at its absolute maximum capacity. Since you are powering an 800-watt motor with an 800-watt inverter it is definitely being strained and that is the cause for the inverter's alarm. Ideally your inverter will have much more capacity than the connected device requires. It is definitely not a good idea to use an 800-watt inverter with an 800-watt device. All devices will draw more peak power than their continuous rating suggests. The...

  • How Long Could a 130 amp/hour Battery Power a 1,200 Watt Coffee Maker
    So 1,200 watts at 120 volts would pull 10 amps. A 130 amp hour battery would be able to supply 13 hours of power with a 10 amp draw on it.

  • Connecting Trailer Battery to Same 12 Volt Wire that Charges Breakaway Battery
    You should have no issue hooking up your trailer battery to the same 12 volt wire that charges your breakaway battery. You will just need to make sure that you do not drain the batteries when they are being used. An isolator or diode is not needed for this application. Then for a power inverter, I recommend looking at the Wagan # WC3720. This will convert 12 volt DC power to 115 volt AC power. A 3 foot DC cable is included to connect directly to the battery. I have attached the installation...

  • 1,000 Watt Inverter Recommendation for Vehicle
    We have a 1,000 watt inverter part number # WC3720 which could potentially work well for you, but it's not really designed for mounting in a vehicle dash. You may have to come up with an extension cord plus an outlet to accomplish that. I attached an install video that shows this installed in a vehicle though for you to check out.

  • Can the Power Inverter 1000 Watts Part # WC3720 Pull 1000 Watts from Each Plug
    The Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles part # WC3720 can only pull 1000W of continuous power at a time between all three plug-ins. Therefore if you have a device that is pulling 1000 continuous watts of power at a time plugged into one of the slots then the other two slots can not be used. I have attached a review video of this product for you.

  • How to Connect Series-Wired Batteries to Power Inverter
    When two batteries are wired in series, such as with your two 6V batteries wired together to give you 12V operation, the negative terminal on one battery and the positive terminal on the other will be what you connect to your inverter. The linked diagram shows a series wiring arrangement (but just for two 12V batteries wired to deliver 24V).

  • What is Battery Amp Hour Rating Needed to Power 1,500 Watts for an Hour
    In order to determine the length of time that an automotive battery will last when using an inverter pulling 1,500 watts of power, you will need to know the amp hours of the battery that you plan to use. For that much wattage though I can't imagine very long if it's a standard battery. Since 12 watts = 12 volts that means that you'd need a 125 amp hour rated battery to power the blender for one hour. 1,500/12 = 125

  • Power and Peak Surge Power of Wagan Power Inverter
    The 1,000 Wat Power Inverter with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720 will absolutely be able to run your 700 watt microwave. It has a surge power of 2,500 watts and 1,000 watts of continuous power so there won't be any problems with your microwave. There will not be any issues using this with a larger 12V battery either and you can re-wire this inverter to it - I've added a link to the instruction manual for you to check out as well.

  • Should a Relay be Used With Wagan Power Inverter
    Though I can see why you might think you need a relay, I do not recommend using one with the Wagan Power Inverter with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720. This inverter has a simple On/Off switch; I assume you want to use a relay to conserve power from your battery but the same thing can be accomplished simply by turning the relay off. Just be sure to use the correctly rated fuse and wire gauge for the length of wire you need (which is included in the installation manual I've linked) to get...

  • How to Use an AC Powered Mini Fridge in a DC Powered RV
    In order to convert the AC power your mini fridge uses to the DC power your RV runs on, I recommend the Three AC Receptacle Power Inverter part # WC3720. The power inverter is capable of handling up to 1000 watts of continuous power which should be more than enough for your mini fridge. It comes with 2 3 foot long DC cables with ring terminals already attached. The inverter has an auto reset feature built into the device in addition to cooling fans, and a low battery alarm.

  • Inverter Recommendation for Powering Outdoor Refrigerator
    What you are asking about is very possible, but you'll want to consider how much amperage the fridge draws to see if your charging system/battery will handle the load. Going with heavier gauge wire is definitely recommended. Especially since you mentioned it's a distance of 20 feet. How heavy does depend on the amperage draw of the fridge as well. The Wagan inverter part # WC3720 would be a great choice for this as it can put out up to 1,000 watts of continuous power. One of it's intended...

    Yes. It is safe, but in order to determine whether or not you'll be able supply enough power to run your Bissell carpet cleaner off of a power inverter like the # WC3720 , you'll need to check the device for it's power requirements- there is usually a sticker on the unit near where the plug goes into the machine that has its electrical specs on it. This sticker will have a required number of watts to power the appliance- If the number of watts required for your electronic device is not...

  • How Long Will AC Power Inverter Run Off 12 Volt Battery
    A 1500 watt AC Power Inverter will run for approximately 16 hours based on the 200 amp hour rating of your 12 volt battery. 1500 watts of AC power at 120 volts is converted to 150 watts of DC power at 12 volts. Amps = watts รท volts, so 150 watts divided by 12 volts equals 12.5 amps. We then divide the 200 (amp hours) by the 12.5 amps to get the 16 hours. We don't carry any 1500 watt AC Power Inverters, but the # WC3720 1000 Watt AC Power Inverter powered off the same 12 volt battery...

  • What is Difference Between Wiring Batteries in Series or Parallel
    What is the output voltage you are wanting? 12 volts? 18 volts? With battery banks if you wire them up in series the voltage of each battery gets added so you'd have 18 volts with 3 6-volt batteries and in parallel the voltage stays the same but the amperage increases.

    I've attached a wire gauge chart for running your Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles Item # WC3720 to the battery. Roundtrip of that 17' distance to the battery would be 34'. Wagan only has recommendations up to 25' so anything after that would cause a significant power drop. I recommend cutting down that distance to ensure proper voltage. Failure to use the correct gauge wire could result in your inverter not supporting full loads and overheating and could potentially...

    What you can do is use an inverter like you said, though this won't plug in, you will need to wire it from the 12 volt circuit on your trailer's 7-way. What you can do is use the Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720. This has a power wire which you'll connect to your 12 volt circuit and a ground wire so you will need to make sure you are able to mount the inverter somewhere you can get a good ground.

    The 1000 watt Power Inverter, # WC3720 that you linked to is a modified sine wave inverter capable of up to 1000 watts continuous, 2500 surge. You will need to check your appliance for how many watts are required for operation. If the wattage is not listed you can simply determine this number by multiplying the number of amps by the number of volts (amps x volts = watts). Once this can be determined, we can identify the needed size of a battery bank for operation.
