The design of the Smart AC 400W USB+ is universal in that it can be placed nearly anywhere that is dry, clean, and has sufficient ventilation. Inside of your vehicle, camper, boat, or RV, simply plug the DC power cord into the cigarette lighter receptacle and turn the Smart AC 400W USB+ on. When using the DC power cord, the Smart AC 400W USB+ will be able to provide up to 180 watts of power (limited by your vehicles DC receptacle output; check with your vehicle manufacture to get the exact specifications). To obtain the full 400 watts of power, connect the alligator clip power cord (included) to your Smart AC 400W USB+ and then clamp the alligator clips directly to your battery.

TrueRated Power™
TrueRated Power is Wagan Tech’s coined term for truth in advertising and performance. While actual output wattage of competitor’s inverters varies greatly, Wagan Tech inverters help consumers to understand and trust that the number printed on the inverter is the actual output of the device. Nearly all of Wagan Tech’s Inverters feature TrueRated Power. Simply put, our inverters are tested at full load and will sustain that continuous load for 24 hours at the wattage printed on the inverter. For example, our Smart AC 400W USB+ will run for 24 hours straight with a 400 Watt load. Our competitors claim “continuous wattage” when in fact most are only rated at 20 minutes of “continuous” wattage. After 20 minutes, the competitor’s output wattage will drop down by as much as 25% of their claimed wattage (in a 400 watt inverter, that can be a 100 watt loss!). Wagan Tech builds our inverters with high peak surges that allow up to 3x the continuous rating to support high surging appliances such as tools, microwaves, air conditioners and refrigerators. Wagan Tech uses top quality components and reliable MOSFET transistors – the key factor in reliable inverter manufacturing.

Smart AC® 400W USB+ is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Customer Service My post is about this company's wonderful customer service since I haven't really used this product but plan on it. I will try to write a review about this inverter once I have used it for a period. I contacted Wagan Customer Service via email regarding obtaining a replacement Negative Cap (Black) for the Smart AC 400W USB+ Inverter that I had lost. I was willing even to pay a small amount for the simple cap since I have been unable to use my inverter do to this. The representatives with the company were helpful and first wanted me to produce a receipt for my purchase however it would be a difficult if not impossible task since I had bought this item several years ago. I informed them of this and they still helped me and sent the part without any charge. This is what I call wonderful customer service. I will definitely by additional Wagan products in future when needed.
