  • Great inverter

    We have been running our off-grid home in Spain with this unit for over 4 years (24/7). It has never missed a beat and is perfect for our lights, tv, laptops, blender, phones, internet. Not big enough for the washing machine or hoover, but there's the genny for that! I would add that I don't think it's the most efficient in power management, but for the price it's a great unit and it's done us well being 100% in use every day.

  • great reliable bit of kit

    I bought one of these over 5 years ago on sale and it has been fantastic. I bought it to use in my garage where I had no power. I used it to power the lights and my tools and the battery would last for hours with constant use. It has safety overload protection which simply blows an easily replaceable fuse. I have used this for emergency situations and has been great for all these years. I thoroughly recommend this item.

  • Rural life-saver

    I bought one of these a couple of years ago and it was a life-saver at Christmas 2013 when we lost our power for 5 days. Ran it off my car battery and it powered the CH boiler, TV and the fridge. Good for powering laptop on the road too. Great little gadget.

  • 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.
