Looking for the best campervan inverters? These are our top 6 picks for the best campervan power inverters on the market.
In van life, chances are you’ve found yourself in a situation before where you were camping off-grid in a beautiful place, and you realized that, despite how nice it is to not have cell service for a change, your phone needs to be charged.
Sure, you can crank up the van and burn a little fuel plugging into your cigarette lighter car charger. But there’s a better way – a much better way!
Power inverters are becoming standard components of virtually any van electrical system. Whether you are building out your van or have purchased one ready for the road, adding the right size inverter to your power system will allow you to use all of your favorite electrical devices and appliances off-grid that you would otherwise have to run only with shore power.
But picking the best inverter can be a challenge. Not only must you decide between modified sine wave inverters and pure sine wave inverters, but also you’ll want to ensure that you do not pick one that is either too large or too small.
This means before you actually make your decision to purchase a power inverter, you are going to have to determine how much power you use among your AC appliances and then be sure you have a battery bank with enough power supply to meet your power needs.
In this post, we’ll provide you with a shortlist of only 6 pure sine wave inverters from which to choose. And we’re recommending only 2000-watt options as this is typically the best size. All models we recommend have both larger and smaller wattage sizes if you would like one larger or smaller.
Plus we’ll explain what to look for when purchasing one and share why we chose the one we did for our van.
On that note, let’s get into our Editor’s Choice and the pure sine wave inverter we chose for our own van life AC power needs.
