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.
