July was $58.90 = ( turned on the A/C ) Tennessee heat wave 84- 94 degrees... I read the negative reviews........... However this sunforce 1000 watt inverters work Great for me.... Clif

I bought this 1000w inverter last fall and have tried everyway in the world to utilize it. I can't run a compact fridge with it as the fan runs every few seconds and pulls more energy than the fridge. It has worked okay to run a drill and small saw but pulls too much energy to use full time on my 450 AMH system. I keep it turned off most of the time. I am not at all happy with it and looking for a better replacement.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SolarHobby Poor quality
Put simply this low end poor quality inverter. When it is on it has fan running on n off even with nothing running. Its noisy, like the ocean is rolling in and out several times a minute. It also gets warm, too warm imo. Much of its chassis is plastic and shaped like a heat sink which obviously does nothing to cool it down. You can only hand tighten your cables with plastic knobs for terminals. The LED display is as bright as a bar open sign. The frequency on this thing fluctuates around 61.3 Hz. Maybe I could go on but basically I returned it after a few days after it used up my 250ah battery bank with nothing plugged in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ratherbefishin Less efficient but worth the price overall
Unit was packaged well with OK documentation. Build quality is OK. Thumb screw nuts worthless to tighten for 100 amps plus draw - replaced with SS nuts and washers. Required the 12 volt equiv of 560 watts to produce 400 watts of 120VAC. Judging by AC motor performance, the sine wave was decent and acceptable to me. LED DC voltage readout was always .5V low. Readout continuously shows AC volts (???) and displays DC volts and current draw only momentarily when selector is pressed. Remote worked well and for me tilted the scale from 3 stars to 4.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Berhan It is not durable.
I bout this inverter on oct.15,2014 and connected to 12v battery in November. It worked great for only 9 months and totally failed. according to my experience, 9 months is to short for such types of products. Therefore, this product is not durable.
