    Default Echo Mk2 PP Understanding Inverter

    Hi all

    I am trying to understand the inverter side of this panel. Why does it have a two pin plug. What did the manufacturer intend to be running off this. Why the two prong itself vs three prong? Can one get an adapter or two prong multi plug. Dos and don'ts. Sorry if it's a dumb question but I would like to know.

    From memory that inverter is about 150W. So it's perfect for Mobile phone, Camera and Laptop charge adaptors. Even a TV and Decoder will run off that. It's a pure sine wave good quality. The panel and inverter has RCCB type protection built in, no need for an earth wire

    Cannot provide high current such for Kettles, Hair Dryers and Hot plates.

    Donít blame yourself over past mistakes. Itís like driving down the N1 while looking in the rear view mirror only.
