AIMS Power inverters will be represented at a tradeshow, the ICUEE (International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition), also known as the Demo Expo, for their first time ever October 1-3.
As a prelude to the event, we’re proud to share this informational video about power inverters with you. It will be playing on repeat, along with a few other videos, at our tradeshow booth in Lousville, Kentucky next week!
So you get a sneak peak …

10000 watt power inverter model by AIMS Power is perfect for off-grid cabin applications.
AIMS Power is dedicated to providing the best products possible to its customers, which is why this new version of the 10000 watt 12 volt inverter was developed. It’s less than half the size and weight of any other model you can find on the market — guaranteed (more specs below). So packing it up and taking it out to an off-grid cabin or using it for any other mobile application is easier than ever.
AIMS Power's new 10000 watt 12 volt inverter is less than half the size of the competition's, making for more flexibility in mobile and off-grid applications.
AIMS Power’s new 10000 watt 12 volt inverter transforms direct current (DC) electricity generated by batteries into alternating current (AC) electricity used to power lights, TVs, vacuums, coffee pots, air conditioners and many other appliances needed to feel cozy in an off-grid cabin.

The inverter’s 10000 watt continuous output combined with its 20000 watt surge capacity means that this AIMS Power product can handle the high wattage startup for air conditioners and air compressors. These products use what’s called locked rotor startup or locked rotor amperage (LRA) which means when starting they require about three to five times their regular wattage.
Even if not using anything that requires LRA, the high wattage capacity on this inverter means that more appliances can be used at once. So for instance, one person could be washing dishes with hot water and another vacuuming in the other room without any problems. Just make sure the combined wattage of the appliances being used doesn’t exceed 10000 watts and doesn’t surge higher than 20000 watts for more than 40 milliseconds.
*Editor’s note: every Tuesday, AIMS Power will feature a “Tech TIp of the Week” that showcases a problem our technical support team has helped our customers solve.
AIMS Power’s first installment of the Tuesday Tech Tip of the Week features an issue that our tech support team comes across almost daily: a customer buys an inverter, without the guidance of an AIMS Power technician, only to find that the inverter can’t handle the job in question.
The biggest piece of advice our tech support team can give: don’t cut corners for price!
GOOD RULE OF THUMB: Your AIMS Power inverter should be able to handle two to three times the amount of power you’d like to produce.
