I'm looking to power a small shed / chicken coop. We'll be running a few small LED lights, a ventilation fan, heater for chickens' water, etc.

All plug into standard 120v wall outlets. Does this unit have those?

Answer: 
YES. BOTH UNITS ARE VERY LOW POWER DRAW. WILL NEED A DEEP CELL BATTERY. THE 400 WATT SUPPLIED WITH THE KIT SHOULD BE OK BUT MAY HAVE ONLY ONE OUTLET. GET A 2000 WATT OR LARGER INVERTER WITH AT LEAST 2 OUTLETS.. THE UNIT WILL THEN POWER LIGHTS RADIO FLAT SCREEN TV ETC.ETC WITH THE LARGER INVERTER. BATTERIES ARE FOR POWER STORAGE.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by running my lights Working great so far running a centek 2000 watt inverter with 1000 watt continuous running my lights June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine Great setup for the price. PVC stand is poor quality though. May 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by parts broken Product arrived with parts broken because it was not packaged properly. Customer service insisted I pack and send back everything rather than replace the broken parts. It was easier to repair myself than talk to a rep any longer, but how many people have a soldering iron and the knowledge I do? I recommend the product but not Home Depot. April 19, 2016
