Is this a pure sine wave inverter?1 answer
It looks a great little unit and I love the price but does it have a pure sine wave output? I see that it is recommended for lap tops etc but I'd be a little concerned with using it on computers without a pure sine wave output.

The Canverter has a Modified Sine Wave do you can generally use it to charge your laptop, but just don't open or use the laptop while it is charging. One thing to take into account would be to check the wattage of the laptop you want to charge and make sure it doesn't draw more than 100 watts.

Practical Use1 answer
How well does this work? Can I use normal house electric kettle, for example, or portable fan? Is this practical, considering drawing power from Campervan house battery? What else could we use it for, practically, in our Campervan free camping experiences?

The Engel Canverter Power Inverter is designed to be used with 240V devices that draw under 100 watts, so the best option will be to check the compliance plate on your appliance and check the wattage. Generally, fans are fine, but kettles, toasters and microwaves draw too much power. You can use these in your regular car to charge items while driving - e.g. a tablet, phone, small laptop.
