I bought the wrong inverter. I wanted to be able to put it in my service truck or my camper or whatever, but this is for my service truck. So I wanted to be able to take 12 volts from the battery and be able to plug in 110 key machines. Now, in theory, this is a great deal. This was on sale for like $100, it is a 12 volt to 110 volt Modified sine wave 2,000-watt inverter, it’s more than I need, it’s going be perfect for my key machines. So I thought. I’m not an expert on inverters but the first thing I learned is there are actually two types: Modified Sine Wave and Pure Sine Wave

That will be great for the key machines. However, this is a modified sine and what I need is the pure or the regular Sine Wave. So the problem you’ll run across between the regular wave which is considered clean, and this modified one which is squared off is the modified wave is not good for if you are running computers. So it’s not as clean. That’s why they’re really inexpensive. It is going to cost me two, three, four times more money for getting the proper one I want. And the reason I am not going to use this one, it will do the trick for the basic duplicator key machines, however my Miracle A9S and also my ITL are code machines and they run circuit boards, they are like mini little computers on there. I am going to have to take it back now, it’s really really good but it’s a Modified Wave and I can’t use this on my computer key machines. I’m risking problems. I could be wrong, I am not going to take a chance, I will go out there and get the proper one for my locksmith service truck.
