Notice these are heavy-duty connections. DC wiring is often heavier because of the lower voltages. Always use the recommended wire. You also see the chassis ground connection found on some power inverters in this picture. Please make sure your power inverter is installed and operated according to its manual. This allows for the safe use of your inverter. Remember these devices produces 120 Volt of AC power, so treat them with the same respect as household outlets.
