12V DC-230V AC 150W Modified sinus inverter
Modified sine wave inverter from Genius is a product designed for the leisure market. It is compact and lightweight and ideal for mounting in tight spaces, such as vehicles and caravans. With 150W continuous power, these models are ideal for use with laptop, digital camera, game console and other small electronic devices.
The advantage of using this type of inverter is definitely the price and weight. Genius is one of the best brands in the market at this price level, and they are therefore one of the most popular products on the market.
Modified sine wave is also called trapezoidal or square wave. This means that this type of inverter does not provide a pure sine wave like our main power available at home and as we know from more expensive inverters. As most hobbyists are using products which are not critically sensitive or have inductive and offset loads, the limitations by using a modified inverter are therefore of minor nature. The Genius inverter is electronically isolated and has soft start power.
