I bought this inverter to run my home fridge during power outages. It works great. No problems starting and running the compressor. It even handled a 1/2" drill motor easily.

I picked this one for it's power and voltage display. It allows me to estimate the battery draw so I have an idea how long it will last. I also liked the USB power source, although I have not used that yet.

It does come with nice HEAVY power leads (with clips), although they are very short. Good enough to set right next to a battery and clamp on.

So far, no complaints or problems.

My first review of this product was not a kind one. I could not use a toaster or coffee pot with this device and chastised cobra for over stating the wattage capabilities. After many hours of work and upgrading to another bigger one with the same results, I wanted to rewrite my review. If you take this inverter or the bigger one, and put it right at the battery with the supplied clamps, it WILL deliver a strong output and make a pot of coffee with a normal toaster. Keep in mind a toaster and a coffee pot are pretty much a direct-short to a power supply since they are heating elements. There is no more difficult task for an inverter to do! Vacuum cleaners, all those things are easy compared to heating element type appliances. Anyway, back to installation. If you have the device RIGHT at the battery it will deliver as promised since there is a short wire and no voltage loss.
BUT when I installed it under the seat of my RV with a top of the line amp install kit about 12 feet away, it did NOT deliver. It would beep and shut down. Even with the 100% copper wire, oxygen free stuff I used, it had voltage drop to make the inverter go below the magic level that makes it freak out. In my installation, I could NOT mount the inverter at the battery--there was not enough room. So long story short I put a second battery under the seat of the RV next to the inverter/ this battery only drives the inverter. Problem solved. works like a charm, but I would invest in the bigger one-- if you can afford it. The voltage drop in the wire is very real issue. I am in the car electronics business and sell such things and it even amazed me and my co workers .
The bad thing to keep in mind, is that all of these converters have a cooling fan. You will hear this loud whirring noise while it runs.

I have these in all 4 of my company's vans to run heavy duty continuous use machines. My old inverters would pop and I would have to turn them off and back on. If these surge it resets itself within less than a second and keeps on truckin. I had to install a solenoid for them to work correctly (my mechanic advised me to do that, I dont know the technicalities) because without the solenoid it wasn't drawing enough power. I have been very impressed with the quality and price of these and will continue to buy them.

I bought this to invert stored 12v power from my solar power AGM batteries into 110v power while boondocking in a converted cargo trailer. It does exactly what I wanted, I have run a cooling fan-22" flat screen-coffeemaker-electric razor-charged my cell phone and laptop-digital camera, all works great! The warnings when you are low on voltage coming in will wake you from a sound sleep, which is great! Would buy again!

I've put this through the ringer! It is amazing how many useful features this has. This is my first experience with an inverter and this one is great. I have overpowered it, and it shut down as it should. I leave it on when i get out of the car and when it gets lower than around 10 volts it shuts off so i will have enough power to start the car when I get back to it. Warning! I tried to run a mini-fridge freezer combo with this and I have to keep it on the lowest setting or it will claim it is being overloaded. Although that is nice, it is well below 1000 watts momentarily when the freezer kicks on but it still shuts down. it even says in the manual that this is a possibility. The display for voltage and watts is very clearly displayed and the alarm is clearly audible with music playing. Thats a good thing!

I had to order a replacement because I accidently connected reverse polarity. It only took a touch and a split second to blow the fuses which also serve as the reverse polarity protection. The replacement unit is operating fine and I'm pleased with the power it can deliver and the features it has. Unfortunately this model does not have user replaceable fuses. It has 4 35A internal fuses all on the main board so if you blow them you will need to either do the hot work yourself or send the unit back for service. I did not have time for the second option and no parts for the first. Other inverter suppliers have models with removeable fuses that can be accessed externally. Look for one of those.

I bought one of these inverters for my own off grid solar project and loved it so much that I've been selling it on all my solar project installations. The remote switch is a very unique selling feature. I'm really not sure how it is that they can make such a superior product so cheap?!! Also Amazon shipped and I received the item within 3 days after purchasing. Very smooth transaction. Recommend both the product and seller.
