What do you think of something like this : https://www.jackery.com/products/explor ... er-station ?willthrill81 wrote: ↑Sun Aug 09, 2020 9:48 amThe problem there isn't the wattage of the refrigerator. It's because the Duracell inverter is a modified sine wave inverter instead of a pure sine wave inverter. Modern compressors rarely operate well or even at all on modified sine wave power.go_mets wrote: ↑Sun Aug 09, 2020 9:39 amMy refrigerator is only 10 years old.
I tried running it with a Duracell Inverter rated for 800 watts ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DZLLZY ) and I got the E03 error which means the refrigerator exceeded the inverter's capability. The inverter shut down.
Granted I did not have my car engine running.
Either the Duracell Inverter is wrong --- a review of their newer model claims it won't run a 600 watt peak air conditioner ---
or the refrigerator draws more than 800 watts.
This company-specific write up visually demonstrates the difference. There are many brands of pure sine wave inverters out there. Xantrex seems to be one of the more popular ones.
Also, air conditioners have larger compressors and need significantly more wattage to start. An AC that draws 600 watts while running may need 1,800 watts to start.
So if you tried again with a quality 2,000 watt pure sine wave inverter, it should definitely work.
