Severe storms have a bad habit of knocking out power to neighborhoods, sometimes for days at a time. Just ask folks in North Texas, Washington, D.C., and other areas after recent ice storms. You can prepare for this possibility with a backup generator or its quieter cousin, the power inverter, from Interstate Batteries and Interstate All Battery Center.

Power inverters convert the DC power from a battery source to AC power like you have in your home. With an inverter, you can use a deep-cycle battery or your car’s battery to provide emergency power for your refrigerator, television and other household necessities. Many inverters have USB ports built-in so you can recharge your cellphone while you wait for the lights to come back on.

In addition to providing emergency backup power during power outages, inverters are great for:

  • Camping
  • Tailgating
  • Charging portable devices

Different inverters are designed for different uses. Larger inverters can power hair dryers, electric blankets, televisions and refrigerators, while smaller inverters excel at powering devices like cellphones, laptops, desk lamps and small fans.

Before you purchase an inverter, get an idea of what you want to power. Each inverter comes with a wattage rating. The more watts you need to use (televisions and refrigerators use more watts than cellphones), the higher the wattage rating you should look for.

Interstate All Battery Center has several power inverters to choose from, and the friendly experts at your local store can help you identify the perfect inverter for your needs. Find a store near you today.
