Pure vs. Modified Sine Wave Inverters – What’s the Difference?
There are two main differences between a pure and modified sine-wave inverter: efficiency and cost. Pure sine wave inverters are good at two things: efficiently powering devices that use AC, and powering devices like radios that can suffer from interference. But, they can be expensive. On the other hand, a modified sine wave inverter may produce some interference, resulting in a less-than-pure current, but they are less expensive than their pure-sine counterparts.
Choosing the right type
Does my device or appliance use a motor?
Is my device a delicate piece of medical equipment?
Does my device or appliance use a rectifier?
Can my device be powered by a DC adapter?
