Industrial-Strength Output Power

The APS750 efficiently converts 12V DC power from a vehicle battery into 120V AC power for any type of equipment, from heavy-duty drills, saws and pumps to computers and sensitive monitoring equipment. The APS750 provides safe, stable, AC output power to help connected equipment perform at its peak. A frequency control feature ensures that devices dependent on tightly regulated AC line frequency, such as computers, VCRs and DVD/CD players, receive clean, computer-grade power.

Extended Peak Surge Power

Many tools, appliances and printers require extra power for start-up. Others, such as refrigerators and pumps, have fluctuating power demands. When operating in inverter mode, the APS750 accommodates these peak surge demands by providing up to 200% more output power than its continuous rating of 750 watts. In OverPower mode, the APS750 can deliver 1125 watts for up to an hour, providing ample reserve power to keep tools and equipment running longer. In DoubleBoost mode, it can deliver 1500 watts for up to 10 seconds to support power-hungry equipment start-ups and motor cycling requirements. When connected to an AC power source, the APS750 can provide up to 1500 watts continuous power.

Auto-Transfer Switching for UPS Operation

When the APS750 is connected to an AC power source, power is passed through to connected equipment and the battery set is charged via a three-stage, 20-amp charging system with adjustable settings for wet/gel battery types. In the event of a power failure or severe voltage fluctuation, the APS750 responds with a near-instantaneous (16.6 millisecond) automatic transfer to battery power. Any number of user-supplied batteries may be connected to the APS750 to provide extended battery backup support for critical equipment. A three-position switch enables you to select AUTO mode for automatic transfer between utility and battery power, CHARGE-ONLY mode to maintain a full battery charge with no automatic transfer switching when the APS750 is connected to AC power or SYSTEM OFF mode.

Diagnostic LEDs

The APS750 features six front-panel diagnostic LEDs to indicate load level (high, medium and low), battery charge (high, medium and low), shutdown status and system fault status.

Overload Protection

To prevent damage to the inverter and connected equipment, the APS750 will shut down automatically if an overload is detected at the AC output connection. The red Load Level Indicator LED will flash to alert you that an overload has occurred. Additional overload protection is provided by a 6-amp AC input circuit breaker, an 8-amp AC output circuit breaker, and a built-in multi-speed cooling fan.

Heavy-Duty Construction

The APS750 features a rugged, moisture-resistant polycarbonate housing that withstands vibration, impact and high-humidity environments—ideal for use at remote worksites, in trucks, RVs and other vehicles, on boats or anywhere that reliable AC power is needed.

Simple Installation and Equipment Connection

The APS750 features integral mounting slots for permanent installation on any rigid, horizontal surface, such as the bed of a pickup truck. Connecting the APS750 to your battery system is quick and easy with readily available user-supplied cables. A grounding lug on the side of the unit connects the inverter/charger to earth ground or vehicle grounding system. AC power is provided to connected equipment via two standard 5-15R receptacles on the front of the unit. When used as a UPS system, the APS750 connects to utility power via a standard 5-15P plug. Four configuration dip switches support wet/gel battery charging profiles, adjustable 135/145V high voltage auto transfer during overvoltages, and selectable 75/85/95/105V AC low voltage auto transfer during brownouts.

Optional Remote Control Capability

The APS750 is equipped with an RJ45 port for connection of an optional Remote Control LED/Switch Module (Tripp Lite model APSRM4), enabling you to control and monitor the inverter/charger from virtually anywhere within a vehicle.

Peace of Mind

The APS750 comes with a 1-year product warranty and a rapid-response repair/replacement policy that's unmatched in the industry.

This plus a deep cycle battery worked perfect.

Like a regular UPS, the unit charges when it has power, and switches to battery during a surge or blackout.

I have an off-road trailer that I use for research. I purchased the APS750 and coupled it with a 105 AH AGM battery in the nose box of the trailer. Away from mains power, it provides excellent run time for several laptops and communications equipment. I keep the battery charged with solar panels off-road and take advantage of the 20A charging capacity of the APS750 when mains power is available. It's a 750 watt inverter, transfer switch, and battery charger in a rugged package - perfect for my needs. I highly recommend the APS750 for mobile applications where high quality and reliable power is important. I can see where it might make a good emergency power system too.

[Edit Sept. 21, 2011: In my original review I stated that the Tripp Lite APS750 was a pure sine wave inverter. I removed that statement from my review as I learned through investigation that the output is pure sine wave when running on mains power (as expected) and PWM (pulse width modulated) sine wave when running on battery. PWM sine wave should not be confused with the fixed square wave output of cheaper inverters. PWM provides tight voltage regulation (+/- 5%) and eliminates harmonic noise - the static hum you might hear with sensitive equipment if run on a cheaper square wave inverter. PWM sine wave is suitable for sensitive electronic equipment and motors. Anyway, I've been running sensitive radio communications equipment and computers on my APS750 with no problems.]

I use this as a backup power source for my pellet stove. If the power goes out when the stove is on, you get a smoky mess since it relies on a fan for combustion and exhaust. I chose to go the APC route instead of the stove-branded unit - I feel more comfortable with a company that knows this business well. I could not be happier with it - fast switching, charges the battery fast after the outage too. Ultimately simple as well - the switch is either off, or automatic or charge-only. Set it and forget it!

Update: I use this only to power the stove long enough to shut down. I do not use it to power the stove for extended periods. It is not a pure sine-wave inverter, so it should not be used for sensitive electronics dependent on pure frequency controlled sine-wave power. For my application, it runs long enough to either shut down or give me time to fire up a generator that is capable of running the stove for longer and with higher quality power.

Here in South Florida, we have what would be described as unpredictable weather... which leads to unpredictable power ;-). Since I work at home on the computer, I need to be able to work through our unexpected power outtages which can last several hours at a time. My UPS just wouldn't cut it for power outtages lasting more than an hour or so.

Enter the king of UPS's, the APS 750! I bought a marine battery at Walmart for under $70 and connected it to the unit. Just the one battery gives me about 5 to 6 hours of run-time for both my desktop and my LCD monitor. If I need more run-time, I can simply connect more batteries in parallel.

Like a regular UPS, the unit charges when it has power, and switches to battery during a surge or blackout. Though the transfer time is a bit higher than a typical UPS, it doesn't seem to matter.

I have two of these. I brought one down to Costa Rica to deal with the unexpected power outages that happen on a semi regular basis. I connected two 12v - 100 amp hour deep cycle batteries. This will run a few lights, my electronics, wifi, computer, music and short use of tools for a day or more (maybe longer). I would leave equipment with higher amp draws (like the refrigerator, pumps, washer, dryer, air conditioner) off the same power out electrical line or expand the battery bank for some mid amperage use. When set to operate automatically and grid electricity goes off, this inverter takes over and supplies the 110 volts of electricity from the batteries via its' inverter without one noticing what happened. This unit will also switches to battery inverter mode when grid voltage drops low or spikes high. The batteries are automatically recharged when the grid electricity comes back on. Likely best deal on the market. I believe Tripp Lite knows what they are doing when I study their line of products. They also make auto power supplies for medical use. 2014 Update: My Tripp Lite APS750 has been working flawlessly for 6 years in a humid beach climate. A Plus for burglar alarms or security cams: This APS works 24/7 as long as your batteries do. This unit does cut off when battery voltage gets too low to protect your batteries from early death via excessive discharge.

I have mixed feelings about this product. I bought it to use in a camper in conjunction with a deep cycle battery and a generator.

There are three settings on the face. The first is inverter mode which provides AC power from the battery to anything plugged in and automatically switches to an AC source when AC current is fed to it (by my generator). Then switches back to DC inverter when the generator is shut off. It also charges the battery when the generator is on in this mode. Nice, right. This is the mode I thought I would be using most of the time and I liked how it was all automatic.

In truth, the inverter is not efficient enough to leave in this mode. Even with nothing plugged in, it slowly sucked the life out of my battery. So I found myself switching to the DC only mode just to shut off the drain. Being that the inverter is on the floor behind a door out of sight, I had to get down and do this. The remote that they sell for an extra $100 for this should be a standard piece that comes with the inverter.

So now, I'm basically using this as a charger for my battery instead of an inverter as I had originally planned, manually switching to charge mode when I turn on my generator. It may work better for other applications other than off grid camping such as in emergency power failure situations. I can also see it working better if I would add a solar panel to feed the battery at the rate of inverter discharge, but that seems like an expensive fix.

I'm not sure if it's possible, but it would be nice to have the inverter kick on whenever an appliance draws 120volts. Event writing that sentence, I already realize that this is probably not likely.
