"Just figuring out all the pieces. It's a modified sign wave system - not clearly mentioned. Overall good value. You will need DC disconnect box, battery monitor, circuit breakers/box. Consult a solar installer/electrician to help connect the 'dots' to stay safe!"

"there are good instructions on use and hook-up. i plugged two small freezers into the unit and ran them for over 24 hours with no power input to the unit. so far no problems have been observed. i would recommend the unit as long as the customer understands it is heavy (batteries) and requires some skill in hooking up the batteries and other inputs. it is a good dollar value as a package deal vs purchasing the items individually."

Off Grid cabin usage

"I have two of these solar kits powering my off grid cabin. They are both also hooked into the generator for charging. I have been using one for the past one and a half years and it powers two lights, internet modem and laptop daily and weekend usage for my sons video games and movie watching. Overall I have been happy with this product but am very disappointed in the batteries. They have recently died after 1.5 years and the Npower people state on this website that they last for five years. It was easy to assemble and we enjoy watching the numbers go up when the sun is shinning!"
