The Renogy 2000W Pure Sine Wave Inverter Charger can be used for multiple applications when going off-grid. A power inverter is an electrical device that transforms the DC power stored in a battery bank into standard household AC power for a user's electronic needs. This device can also charge and maintain a battery bank when connected to shore power and is now compatible with Lithium batteries. With a low transfer time, power remains uninterrupted when switching from solar to shore power. This creates clean and silent energy without having to worry about losing access to connected devices and appliances. The Renogy 2000W Pure Sine Wave Inverter Charger is a perfect back-up power source!
