I really like the idea of these inverters, with the gauge that shows the input and output, and I appreciated the seller listing the standby power draw of 0.3 A (which is turned on but not powering something); based on this, and some good reviews, I bought both the 300W and 500W. Since they draw too much power for a 12V receptacle I wired them directly to the batteries in my camping trailer. Then I noticed my batteries were running down with nothing turned on in the trailer, so I started looking for the reason; which led to testing the Potek 500W inverter, which was currently wired in. To my dismay I noticed that it is drawing 85 mA when it is turned OFF! That's nearly a tenth of an amp doing nothing. Then I turned it on, with nothing plugged into it, and it draws 570 mA, nearly twice what is stated. So I tested the 300W Potek and found it was drawing a whopping 180 mA while it was turned off, and around 490 mA when it is on with nothing plugged in (also no fan running). The "power on" draw is significantly more than the others I've tested, and that is a concern, but when the switch is turned off it shouldn't be drawing power, and that is my big objection. If you're just going to hook this to a battery with the clips, then unhook it when you're done, it would be less of a problem, but if it is wired in permanently it becomes a constant drain. Naturally I had to test my other inverters, so here is a list. I use different sized inverters to match my requirements, figuring larger inverters use more power just to run, though I hadn't tested them before. Most of these units have fans that are heat sensitive, so they did not run during this no-load test, except for the Bestek which runs all the time.
In all tests nothing was plugged into the inverter, a digital multimeter was hooked into the power line to measure amperage used.
Triplite 150W, off=0, on (no-load)=280 mA
Powerline 200W, off=0, on (no-load)=126 mA
Bestek 300W, off=4 mA, on (no-load)=330 mA - fan runs all of the time
FonPeak 300W pure sine wave, off=0, on (no-load)=405 mA
Energizer 500W, off=8 mA, on (no-load)=380 mA
Potek 300W, off=180 mA, on (no-load)=490 mA
Potek 500W, off=85 mA, on (no-load)=570 mA
I have returned the Poteks, but I don't even like the Energizer drawing 8 mA when it's off, and, since I would like the option of easily changing the inverter I use hard-wired to the battery, I'm going to use Anderson plugs to connect the inverter instead of just the eye connectors.
I've been using a 100ah 12V universal battery as a power source.
The digital readouts seem to work as advertised. I've not blown a fuse or anything but 85-100W is the total I've pushed through it so far. I've not heard the fan come on yet so I hope that part works, I won't know until I push it harder. I'll update in a couple months once I've really put it to regular use in the spring.
