TheInverterStore.com Offers New 8Kw AIMS Power Inverter

TheInverterStore.com launches a new AIMS Power inverter to help humanity continue its current trend — shifting toward use of renewable energy resources and achieving independence from big oil.

A new 8000 watt power inverter offered by TheInverterStore.com can provide electricity on the road, in the field, at a campsite, house, or anywhere else off-the-grid this summer takes you.

The main qualities that separate this 8kw inverter model from the competition are its size (half that of the previous model) and weight (21 pounds as opposed to 42) combined with the fact that the price isn’t increasing, according to general manager of TheInverterStore.com, Michael Shepherd.

Inverters by AIMS power off-grid cabins

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.
