Modified vs Pure Sine Wave
Hi all. I've got a question I thought you could help me solve. Especially since your experience has proven very useful. A friend of mine on Facebook, in talking about the recent northeast power outages, said that it's best to avoid an inverter with modified sine wave, instead preferring one with pure sine wave as pure doesn't destroy electronics, whereas modified does. Sure, it doesn't do it all at once, but apparently, per him, given a couple weeks running a PC on a modified sine wave inverter it will destroy the power supply. Is there any truth to that, or is he just blowing smoke? I'm just wondering as I haven't seen the same thing on my end and I run a lot of modsine inverters. But then again, most of the stuff I run via inverter tends to be pretty rugged and not likely to be affected by things like that, or else it's safely tucked behind a UPS. So I may be partially sheltered from the effects, and thus I'm not seeing them.
