How to Install an Inverter?
Many people are now interested in finding the best HID kit for their home or office, and the Honda EU2200i Companion can easily come to the rescue. For a small amount of money, it is possible to put a lot of money back into your home or office by purchasing this quality HID projector. The unit plugs into an outlet on your wall, allowing you to use your laptop or other device to power nearly all of your electronics. In addition to lighting up your area, this unit can also function as an inverter that converts the energy in the batteries into supplemental energy.
The HID kit has two different power sources: the auxiliary power cord and the battery pack. The cord is often referred to as the ‘cable’ because it is a very thin cord. It plugs into the wall and carries power from there. The unit itself is quite bulky but contains many components. This includes a monitor, battery, inverter, power switch, power control circuit board, and LED lights.
If you are not familiar with HID technology, there are basically four components: the diode, the pixel, the bulb, and the capacitor. The diode actually turns on and off current. The pixel (or LED) emits light, and the battery charges the battery. Finally, the capacitor charges the battery. The process is pretty simple, but most people don’t have the tools necessary to properly do this process.
It is not possible to charge the battery when it is full to empty. The way to solve this problem is to continually add more batteries, or use a charge controller device. These devices are designed to manage the amount of power used by the battery. You simply plug them into the power strip and they will charge the battery for you.
If your headlights do not turn on or turn off at all, then you need to first find the outlet that they are plugged into. Then, you should use a wire stripper to loosen the soldering that is holding the wire to the connector. You can then cut away the insulation to expose the copper wire. You can then use a continuity tester to check that the wire is making a complete connection.
Next, you need to unplug any accessories that are currently attached to the inverter. Some of these include a laptop, TV, printer, modem, etc. Take everything out of the inverter so that you can quickly determine which wire is live and needs to be replaced. Sometimes it can be a simple matter of pulling the wire away from the connector. Other times you may need to use a screwdriver.
Once you have removed the battery, look at the level of power. The battery should be at least half way full if it is not, then you will know that you are working with a dead battery. If the battery is at or below half capacity, then you need to replace the battery. There are a few reasons why the battery may be dead. One reason is overcharging, which can be solved by leaving the car in gear until the battery has cooled. If you happen to overheat the engine, the battery could also burn up.
Once you have replaced the battery, you need to take the cables that are connected to the inverter and connect them to the power source. Be sure to keep the wires from touching each other as they can cause a fire. The inverter will have an adapter plate that needs to be attached to your existing battery wiring. When you connect the plates, make sure to match them up correctly. Once you have successfully connected the plate to the power source, you will be ready to use the Honda EU Brotherhood 1800 watt portable inverter.
