I really shouldn’t complain. I mean with the cost of this thing its hard to be unhappy. The product works. I am sucking 1100w peak at startup and 880-900w @ 10.8-11v continuous. My big issue is @ 75f the inverter shuts down after 6 1/2 minutes. I thought maybe the batteries i have may be faulty, but no, they still pass load tests after shutdown. Problem is, if the inverter is used anywhere near continuous rating, it gets super hot and shuts down. I can let it cool a few minutes and it works again,but only after flipping the switch on and off. The green light comes back on and the thing stops beeping and flashing its red light but wont power the load until the unit is turned off, then back on. This will be annoying at best. I have 350Ah of battery capacity because i need to use my vacuum for 30-45 minutes, @ 80A draw. Now i will have to periodically wait for the inverter to shut down every 6-7 minutes and find something productive to do. Also, the inverter is VERY light. I knew i had a problem as soon as i took it out of the box.
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.
