" I Working for a rural telephone company, I regularly found myself needing AC power in my work truck. I needed clean reliable power to power a variety of items ranging from power tool battery chargers, laptops, wireless internet equipment, radios and lighting. I knew that a true sinewave inverter was required to handle the job. I installed this inverter into my work truck, and use it daily. Upon installation I tested the power output with an oscilloscope and I can attest to its ability to generating a perfectly clean true sinewave one would expect from a utility.
As an added bonus, the fan only cycles on if there is need for cooling; however it has a fantastic heat sink and has never needed to run yet with my use (quiet operation was important to me as fan noise drives me crazy!).
It should be noted that one must have reasonable expectations of the unit in that it only produces 600 watts – do not expect it to operate heavy loads like saws and heating elements. If your intent is resistive loads like computers, lighting, and other sensitive electronics then this is the unit for you. Modified sine wave inverters will destroy power tool chargers – this unit has worked flawlessly with my Dewalt chargers for several hundred charge cycles.
Installation takes some effort, but the end result is well worth it. As with any inverter, it is IMPERATIVE that you follow the installation instructions and use the proper gauge and length cable to connect to the battery of the vehicle to prevent voltage drop under load to prevent the inverter from ‘complaining’ about low voltage, which will subsequently reduce the AC output wattage.
I give this inverter 10 stars, not 5! You simply can’t go wrong if used properly.

" We installed this product before going on our last vacation. It was great we could power our Portable DVD players for the grandkids while we were on the road. It also enabled us to easily charge our cell phones and the laptop while taking a breathtaking road trip. I could not find anything that I didn't like about the product. "
