Executive Summary By Ron Victor
The two common types of power inverters: true-sine wave or modified-sine wave. True-sine wave inverters create power that is moreover identical to the public utility power grid system. Waveform is considered when choosing a power inverter.
An inverter charger combines power inverter and battery charger and transfer it to single unit.

Executive Summary By Brandon M. Leibowitz
Power Inverters, also known as power supply units or power converters, are a great way to power electronic devices when there is not a ready electrical outlet present but there is DC power available. The basic concept of a power inverter is that it can convert a car's 12 volt direct current power into the same type of alternating current power available from a wall socket, enabling electronics to charge while traveling.
On the market you can find an ever-increasing number of different power inverters. There are power inverters that can provide power for one, two, three, or four plugs simultaneously. There are also power inverters that contain USB ports that can charge USB-enabled devices; this can add to the functionality of your power inverter if you carry around devices like the popular iPhone.
Power inverters also differ in the amount of power they supply.
