Good product – Senpower 1000W Car 12V DC to 220V AC Power Inverter with Universal Socket Adapter Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Comes with both cigarette power adapter and battery clamps with twist terminals. Compact size, light weight. Good build quality, opened it, and components and soldering is good quality. Good output, more than 600 watts (have tried 650W, works great)
Cons:
Not 1000 watts output. Will not work while engine in my car is running (see other thoughts).
Other:
Battery voltage with engine off: 13.2V, engine running: 14.7V. The Senpower inverter works when engine is off, but the fail LED is lit when engine is running. I think this might be a problem with the dynamo or some noise when the engine is running. I will try the inverter in another car next week and post my experience in the forum.
Bottomline:
For this price I think this is a very good buy, even with only 700 watts, a similar inverter costs more than 4 times as much here (Norway).
