Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by asdfasd Buyer beware!
This product does not work as advertised even after paying to send it back to the manufacturer for repairs and receiving it back. The unit will not handle anywhere near 1,500 watts. Even running our 32" LED TV causes it to cause the TV to reboot every 10-15 minutes. It was installed by my RV dealer because I wanted to make sure it was installed properly. This has basically been a waste of money and now I will have to buy a different inverter. Very disappointing. DO NOT BUY

Recommend putting a 25amp fuse on both neg and positive leads from battery to double the protection of shorts. The internal 30 amp fuse failed to blow as the OCD and shorted the internal control board. I was attempting to use a 12 amp circular saw when the short occurred. Thanks to Home Depot return policy I was able to return the product hassle free. On that note I tried to contact the manufacture but no response.

The inverter has met my expectations. Unit will be used rarely so long term use is unknown.

No need for a circuit breaker. The 1500w inv. Only has roughly 12amp cont capability. Put a 70amp dual element time delay fuse on the neg side of the inverter off the battery. That will be more of an externial protection to the inverters internal protections.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeeT2 So far, a great purchase-------
I have this little inverter installed at my cabin, and thus far it has performed above my expectations. Thus far, it has been very lightly loaded, and only in the evenings, but I have yet to see the cooling fans kick on. My wife uses a CPAP, and thanks to a couple of deep cycle RV-Marine batteries, I only see about a 2/10 voltage drop over night. I'm sure that is not only due to the quality of the battery installation, but also due to the low power demands of the inverter itself. My only complaint woud be that because I ordered the unit on line, I could see no way to ask for the 10% "Combat Veteran" discount that I always receive by shopping in store, by showing a copy of my DD-214.

Very poor service response. Came out of the box BAD, called service support and they said it was bad fans and that they will send me new ones and they will be here on Monday! So after not receiving them I called again, 3 days later they arrive. Guess what didn't fix the problem? I decided it was time to send the pile of junk back to them to fix, but all no, have your credit card handy, they are going to charge you even under warranty to repair it, parts and labor are free, cough. So why throw good money after bad? Will be buying something else to replace it.

I got this pure sine wave inverter primarily to power my pellet stove. Living in rural Vermont means there will be times in the long Winter when line power is out. The pellet stove needs power to run combustion air and distribution blowers. Since the stove draws about 1.5 amps, this inverter has no trouble providing the juice required. I did follow the recommendation on wire gauge from the battery pack to the inverter to reduce line loss, which can be very significant if improperly gauged wire is used. The battery bank is 2 6 volt 220 AH golf cart batteries wired in series with a single 12 volt 112 AH deep cycle marine battery wired in parallel for 12 volts and 332 AH. 2 45 watt solar panel arrays charge the batteries through a 10 amp solar charge controller. i did a bit of research and believe this inverter gives me the biggest bang for the buck. At some point, I'll need a bigger soar panel array, larger inverter AND battery bank to run the household off-grid. But as a first foray into off-grid power, this gives me lots of experience.
