Converters convert the voltage of an electric device, usually alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC). On the other hand, inverters convert direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC)

A device that transforms a Direct current to Alternate current is an inverter. A device that transforms an Alternate Current to direct current is a Convertor. Example, a device that draws current from say a car battery (direct current) and changes the current to alternate current to operate say a fan is an inverter. A devise like an adapter that draws alternate current from the mains and operates battery operated electronic device say, a tape recorder ,is a convertor.
