I have not used this much, so this is not a testimony to its reliability or longevity, but so far I have only set it up as a "proof of concept" for my RV. With only a single Flooded Lead Acid deep cycle battery (Deka Marine DP24 rated with 550 CCA) as a test mule, I was able to prove out two things: the ability of the inverter to start and run my A/C unit (just briefly, to prove the inverter could handle starting the compressor motor), and the ability of the inverter/battery combo to power my microwave for at least 5 minutes on full power without dying.
The microwave owners manual says it takes a Supply Power of 1500W. I actually did the test with the microwave at 50% power (most or all microwave ovens accomplish this merely by turning it on at full power for 10-15 seconds, and then turning off the heater for the same amount of time, repeatedly for the full cook time you program). I did this because I only have the single battery described above and I didn't want to draw the full ~150A from it for 5 minutes straight, but rather intermittently over 10 minutes total. And I made sure to put a bowl of water in the oven so it would not heat while empty....
The A/C unit label shows 12.8A for the compressor and 2.4A for the interior fan (maybe it's only 1.2A on the low setting - I will estimate - which is how I operated it). At those numbers, the A/C unit should be consuming about 1700W in steady state. Of course surge current to start the compressor was the greater challenge, but this inverter was able to do it - and I did not even need to use the inverter's "soft start" power-on feature (where one turns on the A/C unit first, THEN powers on the inverter, and the inverter ramps up its output voltage gradually). I was hoping I wouldn't need "soft start", because it would have been a nuisance to have to turn off and then power back on the inverter whenever the A/C compressor had to cycle on again.
I did NOT try to run both the A/C and the microwave at the same time, that is more stress than I wanted to put on my little battery and I would rather test the inverter that way later when I obtain a couple of paralleled 100AH lithium batteries better rated for such a load. So, to anyone wanting this for the same purpose that I explained above, it looks like it's a go.
I should note that this inverter - like most I've seen - has the heat sink cooling fins (to which the power transistors are all bolted to, up and down the length of the thing inside) oriented longitudinally. This is no surprise, you can see this on the photos of this and practically every other unit on the market. The manual says something like "don't mount upside down" which I really don't understand, because it has four fans inside which should be good to keep the thing running cool no matter what orientation it is used in. But, since the fans only turn on (and consume a little bit of extra power) when the unit heats up enough, it would actually be optimal to orient the thing vertically (the long dimension being vertical, that is) because air cooling works best when the fins are vertical and the air flows readily from bottom to top when the thing is warm or hot. The better cooling effect you can get from the heat sink cooling fins, the less often the fans will have to turn on, and also the more effective will be the cooling of the unit in any case.
I just wanted to note that, even though I might not even be able to mount this thing vertically in my own rig as there probably isn't space to do so......
You will probably want to get the remote control (not supplied). I'm not sure if it is simple enough to build one or if there is a more complicated circuit to hack if you want to build your own (the plug is a standard telephone RJ-11 so easy to obtain). But, since your inverter will probably not be accessible at the point of use of your appliance, it will sure be nice to be able to power it (or reset it, if you overwork it and drive it into overload/shutdown) without going over to the unit - wherever it is mounted - to accomplish that. I'm sure I will get a remote when I eventually mount this in my RV.
As others discussing similar size power inverters have said, you'll want to at least double up 4 gauge cables (4 gauge is the easiest to obtain) because even running my microwave at 50% for those 5 minutes, my cables which were hanging in open air were noticeably warm from the intermittent ~150 amps flowing. Imagine the inverter is capable of nearly twice that current draw - continuously - and you would find a single 4 gauge cable not capable of safely handling that current without some kind of meltdown (twice the current generates FOUR TIMES the heat in any cable) and even moreso if the cable was not hanging in open air and couldn't easily dissipate all that heat. By the way, the standards for safe current capacity for a 4 gauge wire at ROOM temperature (i.e., not bundled with other wires in a confined space....) is something like 120A. Always check the temperature of all the high-current connections and cabling with everything running at full load for a long time and don't just take my word for it. Have fun and be safe.
Also used it on a remote location on a friend's farm to run some power equipment. Much nicer than trying to the stuff by hand.
NOTE: DO NOT bond neutral and ground if installing in a travel trailer or even in a home solar installation. That 'may' cause a problem that I experienced with the new/first unit. Still don't know why the used unit smoked wiht nothing plugged in. But Aims did me good!!!
I purchased the Aims 2000 Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter from Amazon and Aims, to use with my travel trailer and the small solar system I installed. The inverter was ordered on 8/30/2019 and I installed it shortly after it arrived, the first part of September. The inverter worked great but the summer travel trailer camping season had ended so the trailer was tucked away for the winter and the inverter disconnected. However during the winter, I often did check everything in the trailer, reconnected the inverter and it still worked plugging my wife's blow dryer in for testing on occasion.
Fast forward to June 2020... we were out in the forest for the first time "camping" in our trailer for several days and the inverter continued to work well. It powered my wife's blow dryer, the TV and USB chargers. On the third morning we heard some clicks or popping sounds coming from the inverter. When I checked, the inverter was still running, light on, but I could smell smoke and it was buzzing very loudly! Never made a sound before. We cut our outing short and came home.
Aims Corporation was responsive and I was issued an RMA as it was still under warranty.
I found the exact same inverter, the Aims 2000 Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter, used from Aims, their retail store for less than new and wanting to get out in the forests again, I ordered it. Upon its arrival I installed it in the trailer, Hooked up my battery power, switched the circuit breaker on then turned the unit on...
Green light came on, and stayed on while the unit smoked!!! There was nothing plugged into the outlet.. no load. Switched it off as quick as I could!
So... two Aims 2000 watt Pure Sine Wave Inverters, one never really used, the other a warranted used unit both failing. Aims Corp was again responsive about issuing an RMA but this time I was told I needed to contact tech support when the replacement(s) come before hooking it up as there must be something wrong with my hookup. I will oblige. But, Red to Red, (positive), Black to Black, (negative), should do it! Not sure how you hook them up wrong unless you reverse polarity, but then they will immediately crowbar across a diode and some fuses will pop to try and protect the inverter from reverse polarity.
I have now been searching for a better inverter but Aims are supposed to be pretty good inverters. I am not certain that they are mechanically sound to be bounced around in shipping much less being in a travel trailer.
Now the two week wait, plus, for a replacement and/or refund.
Again, the customer support has been excellent, as it should be for under warranty items. But I am not having very good luck. Your mileage may vary!
