How to choose an inverter for campervans and commercial vehicle

If using AC appliances in the car, efficiency and lifetime should be taken into consideration. Should the system consist of separate components or should it be a compact all-in-one system? Our recommendation is a modern all-in-one power system with lithium batteries which is the most compact and reliable solution at any time.

All-in-one inverter system including lithium battery

An LPS lithium power supply is a complete system with built-in lithium battery, charger and relays for safety and efficient supply of auxiliary power in the car, camper van or commercial vehicle. The LPS has the benefit of being compact and more efficient than traditional battery systems, it also charges really quickly.

Which inverter is best for campervan and commercial vehicle?

A power inverter with a pure sine wave AC output are clearly better. Today all high-end power supplies include smooth start-up technology of 230V electrical appliances with high-peak power loads, -and deep discharge protection of the auxiliary battery as well. All-in-one LPS inverter systems from Clayton Power include all of these features.

What is a car inverter used for?

With 230V electrical current installed in a car or commercial vehicle, more jobs can be done on-site, even when no mains electricity is connected. Service work can be done quickly and easily, without having to carry all your power tools up to the 3rd floor. Inverter system with lithium batteries performs best.

Can inverter charge car battery?

A standard inverter system cannot charge the car battery, even a combined inverter/charger which is for charging a secondary auxiliary battery from the grid, cannot charge the starter battery. By using an all-in-one LPS power system including inverter instead, it is possible to charge the car battery via the starting aid function.

Could a traditional inverter damage the battery?

The short answer is yes! Especially if the battery doesn’t include deep discharge protection. A lead acid auxiliary battery should also be fully charged from the grid regularly and never be discharged with more than 50% of its capacity. The power consumption should never exceed 50% of the lead battery capacity either.

Generator vs Battery Generator with inverter

There is no exhaust on a battery generator with a built-in inverter, of course, contrary to the traditional generator or air compressor with a petrol-driven motor. Motors with exhaust must be used outside the vehicle, which means that heavy lifts are necessary to get them in and out opposite a battery generator.

Inverter manufacturer in Europe

Clayton Power develop and produce inverter systems including lithium batteries. The compact LPS inverter systems with powerful lithium batteries are suited for use in cars and service vans, gives access to 230V and 12V power simultaneously. The LPS is efficiently charged from solar panels, the mains or from the car while driving.
