Ac180 keeps turning on where plugged into grid

I turn off the power button on the Ac180 turns it self back on when plugged in, I have updated to the latest firmware, if I unplug it from the power it will stay off

As far as I know, this is normal behaviour so that the UPS function works correctly. Is there a reason why you need to keep it connected to an active grid outlet?

I am not using it as a UPS, when I am sleeping in the van, I don’t want it starting up in the night changing. I shouldn’t have to keep unplugging it the description states it’s a power button,
Every other inverter I have, the power button turns it off.

If you plug in any source of input the unit will turn on. This is std. practice for most power stations.

@PeterG It is normal that AC180 will turn on if you plug into the grid.

@PeterG Im assuming “every other inverter” you are using, doesnt feature a UPS mode on it… This is common behavior with units that feature such tech. If you dont want it to draw AC power while using it at night, unplug it from the charging source.
