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

If you’re not 100% sure about which type of inverter would suit you best, ask yourself these questions:
  • 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?
If you answered yes to either of the first two questions, you may need a pure sine wave inverter. If you answered yes to either of the second questions, then you’ll likely be fine without one. If you’re not sure whether your appliances can run on a modified sine wave inverter, always check with the manufacturer.
