  • I run a community allotment project in Sheffield, and as our plots have no mains power, I ordered the lower-powered 300 Watt version of this last year. It worked a treat for charging power tools, mobiles and laptops, but always complained when I tried to power a slow cooker from it. I saw this 600 Watt version was on offer, and immediately bought one. Well, it works a treat! Now our ever-hungry volunteers can share a meal at the end of a hard day's digging! This, to us, is a brilliant bit of kit, and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

  • We brought this inverter to Malawi, Africa to start our home after our honeymoon in the UK. We have 3 to 6 blackouts each week that last for 2 to 4 hours. We use the inverter together with a car battery to watch tv, use our fan, computers, charge our phones and light our lounge and kitchen. We bought a car battery charger here in Malawi to charge the battery when lights are back on. For the last 5 months, our inverter has been a great and cheap solution to our power problems. The fuses blew once but they were easy to replace even here (same as for saloon cars - 10 amp), I changed them myself.

  • Bought this six months ago with a 60W solar panel/ controller and 125AmpH leisure battery. It provides all the electricity for my house in France, 4 bedrooms, lighting, satellite TV etc. I just replaced all the bulbs with low energy ones, the solar panel keeps the battery topped up. Perfect, no electricity bills and all for under £200 the lot.

  • I have been running one of these for over 12 months. I live off grid and it powers everything, lappy TV DVDR CF lights, well good ones anyway, even satellite broadband and the fridge in summer when the solar is good. It runs 24/7 and is running a little warm now but that is because I am stretching it. I am here looking for an upgrade but thought the new low price for this was a steel. Don't let cheep put you off these are great ... Its a pity they wont parallel, I would just buy a second unit.

  • Most inverters say will not power printers! This one said it would, and it will!! Got this to print off things on the move, with a laser printer. Works so well. The only down side. If you leave it on, it will drain the battery too far to let you start your van! So, do not leave it on. This is a very good bit of kit.

  • The staff at the Wrexham Branch were very helpful, I chose this for camping trips to run laptop and more, because it connects to the battery I don't need to leave the ignition on. I connected the inverter to battery and ran out a long extension and powered my 17" screen laptop no prob, and an airpump for inflating airbeds. Didn't get hot or start fans, an excellent bit of kit. It will pay for itself in the long run. Light to carry and well made and easy to set up.
