- durable construction
- quiet = fan only comes on when unit gets warm after initial power up
- LED display of watts being used or battery volts remaining. Very cool.
- power cables from battery clamps to unit are stiff and brittle. You can buy upgraded "ultra flexible" ones but IMHO they should ship with that.
Get this...you won't be sorry :-)
So, case in point; If you need this to run high wattage load for very short periods of time it appears to be the best value inverter in this wattage range. But, if you need to use it to make money like me, it will more then likely lead to some embarrassing outbursts and wasted productivity. I will be re purposing this inverter for another project and replacing it with a commercial unit like i should have purchased in the first place. "You get what you pay for" -once again my grandmothers infinite wisdom lives on.
It is not a pure sine wave inverter; the box (not pictured) says modified sine wave and the description did not say either way. The inverter itself does not say if it is pure or modified sine wave anywhere that I noticed.
I should have known it was modified sine wave by the $80 price tag for such a high wattage rating. Pure sine wave inverters are 2-3 times as expensive.
I tried it anyway, installing it in a camper travel trailer with proper grounding and it does supply power and the inverter itself runs quietly.
I hooked the trailer's external power cord into the inverter (running off of a Trojan battery bank) and it does send enough electricity to run the refrigerator and lights and objects plugged into outlets all at the same time. My battery monitor said it was pulling about 25 amps or so, and the Inverter showed roughly 300 watts being used.
The problem is that the modified sine waves cause my electrical system and items I plug in to buzz. The lights buzz quietly, the fridge a little bit louder, and a fan I plugged in started buzzing loudly and the reciprocating motor started twitching the fan so it moved a little even when turned off. None of these behaviors happen when plugged into a power cord coming from a house's external power outlet.Read more ›
Trying to use large cables is a bit scary in a vehicle where vibration may loosen the cable terminals.
It would be very easy for the cables to short out. I guess some shrink wrap would
work? But still an accident waiting to happen. I'm looking for ideas. A design flaw IMHO. The class T fuses are expensive even on amazon- 16 bucks. And a replacement fuse at a retail store would be 30 bucks. There's also the possibility
that the fuse won't blow.
