12 Volt Inverters (use Lighter Socket)

All the inverters available on this page, such as RoadPro, PowerDrive, MobileSpec, Cobra and Thor, can be powered by your cigarette lighter socket and are intended for smaller use. The 400 watt and greater generally work great for cell phones, iPads and laptops. For quick usage, hook an inverter up to your car, truck, or boat battery by plugging these into your lighter socket and you have AC power. Very convenient and handy so you can charge your mobile devices while on the road. Enjoy a compact and lightweight inverter for your small device needs.

Need more Power? See Thor's Higher Powered Modified Sine Wave Inverters ranging from 750 Watts to 5000 Watts of continuous power. RoadTrucker recommends Thor because they are rated for continue power 15% above their real capability and they use Ground Fault protection on their receptacles.

Check out the RoadPro and Cobra cup holder design inverters that will fit in your vehicle’s cup holder. Space-savers! All inverters in this category provide continuous AC power output for what you need for an active lifestyle outdoors.

Want a better Inverter with a cleaner output, that produces much less heat? See Thor Pure Sine Wave Power Inverters. Pure sine wave Inverters will run appliances that the modified type can not because the output wave is like your home electricity wave. They are recommended for many sleep apnea machines and work very well for delicate electronic equipment, as they do not create the excess heat, that the modified wave inverters do.
