Schumacher 410 Continuous Watts, 820 Peak Power Converter

does it come with cables to hook up to a battery?

Yea, my question too. Does it have the cables to connect via a cigarette lighter or directly to a battery?

I know others are selling it with the cables.

Manufacture says both

Hi there! Confirmed with the vendor:

This item comes with both the cables hook up to a car battery and the cigarette lighter adapter.

NOT NEW as stated in ad page , mine says REFURBISHED!!! But looks and works fine.

By the way, this one is still going strong after 7 years:

There is also a very strange statement in the instructions:

“…to be used with a single battery up to group 31 (130 Ah or smaller).”

Huh…what? Most RVs use a bank (2 or more batteries attached in parallel). So this is no good for RVs? I own or have owned and used over 10 inverters and have never seen a statement like that.

I also missed this…this is an inverter, not converter.

Converters convert alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC).

Inverters convert direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).
