While marine power inverters serve as traditional inverters in that they convert DC power to AC power, they are specifically designed for the marine environment. When you are buying an inverter for your boat you should absolutely buy a dedicated marine power inverter because they are specially manufactured to deal with the corrosive salt water environment.Read more +

When choosing your marine power inverter, you need to consider typical factors including which devices will be running from your solar power system, and how much power those devices require. If you are creating a hybrid solar- and generator-based system, you'll want to think about how to integrate them together.
You'll also want to consider what kind of solar power you'll be able to gather. Namely, will you have permanently installed rigid solar panels, or will you create a solar panel bank using portable or flexible solar panels? Being prepared with information like this before you make your buying decision is prudent and will ensure that you buy the correct marine inverter and other components for your independent solar power marine system.
Xantrex Freedom HFS Overview
Will Tomkinson from Xantrex discusses the features and benefits of the next generation Xantrex Freedom HFS inverter/charger. The 12VDC inverter provides true sine 120VAC power, and has all of the features of the Freedom Xi inverter, with the addition of a 55A charger. It is available in 1000W or 2000W, for 12VDC battery banks for your RV or boat.
In marine power inverters you have two main choices; pure sine wave inverters and modified sine wave inverters. Pure sine wave inverters have a better reputation for providing smooth and ideal AC power that can feed small, hardy appliances and even more delicate ones like microwaves and computers. They do tend to be a bit more expensive, as they more closely mimic utility grid power.
Modified sine wave marine inverters are less expensive but provide "choppy" power that tends to overheat items like surge protectors and power converters, and can make some appliances unreliable. Additionally, it is universally understood that modified sine wave inverters are less efficient than pure sine wave inverters.
