Today, Kevin received the 48 volt, pure sign wave inverter from ebay. The inverter has been purchased to run on the 48 volt battery system on Clipper. It is important that the batteries used to run the inverter have a high discharge rating. The batteries we use have a discharge rate of 800 amps over 5 seconds. The will be further discussion about the battery bank we have Clipper later.

The inverter was tested today with the heat gun. Basically a hair dryer. The test was successful with the heat gun drawing 2000 watts.

To hear what Kevin has to say about the inverter take a look at our YouTube channel.
