Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Great value for the Price Quite happily runs a 680W electric drill, Seig Micro Lathe and Seig Micro Mill all of which must have a considerable start up serge currents particularly the 680W drill at start up.
Cable diameter is good for the current required from Battery has screw terminals
Cons:
Rather than a universal adaptor a UK Socket would be better.
The universal adptor blocks the second socket so why fit the second socket?
There is no provision for adding a full earth other inverters have a a screw terminal for earthing.
Other:
As an Electronics enginner took apart and inspected build quality before use. Was very pleased with the quality of the unit I have.
The unit has been in use without problem for quite a few months now it used in a solar powerd off grid workshop ring main. With external earthing.
The company make a 2kw unit deal extream do not seem to stock this, this is a shame as I would buy the 2000W version.
Bottomline:
Good purchase orderd a second unit as my partner needs more power for her workshop next door.
