Conflicting answers - Please clarify - Can my R840093 work with a modified sine wave inverter?
1. The label on my charger says Charger No. R840093 (label attached), but this page seems to be for an AC840093. Are they the same device?
2. Is there a manual for the R840093 available? What documentation is available?
3. Two very similar questions were asked about inverters. Username Goodtobeking asked "Is it ok to use this charger with a DC to AC inverter with a modified sine wave?"
Ridgid replied "No, it is not recommended."
Username deerkiller asked "Would I be able to plug this charger, or any other Ridgid charger, in to a power inverter in my vehicle," and he specified a Duracell inverter that appears to be a modified sine wave inverter.
Ridgid replied "Yes, you can do that."
MY QUESTION: Will the R840093 work on a modified sine wave inverter from a reputable manufacturer, such as Cobra, Tripp Lite, Whistler, CAT? Will you please reference some documentation with your answer?
This should be a pretty common application with anyone who would want to charge their batteries in a remote location. An inverter uses 12-volt direct current from a source such as a car battery to provide 120-volt alternating current similar to house hold power. Inverters that alternate their voltage in a pure sine wave are significantly more expensive and less common than ones that output modified sine wave.
