It will work on a pure sinewave inverter. I have charged from my Outback 3.6 KW pure sinewave inverter with no issues. Have never tried a MSW inverter... Would be scared.Can you charge the Volt by plugging into a modified sine wave inverter?
Or would you need a pure sine wave?
I would like the ability to charge the Volt offgrid, but want to keep the cost of the inverter down as much as possible. I suspect I'll need at least a 2000 W inverter as I don't have a large batery bank and will only be charging when there is full sun and fully charged batteries. That way all the power generated from my 3200 W of panels can go toward charging the Volt (assumes ~70% panel to current at battery terminal efficiency).The Volt is picky about power. I doubt it'd like modified sine wave, but I've never heard of anyone trying or considering it. What circumstance would you be in where it'd be desirable to do that?
