Customer reviewsGood Sinewave inverter.
I bought this to replace a much cheaper sine wave inverter in my trailer. The previous inverter had very short studs for the battery cables which made it very likely that the battery cables would fall off and short something out. The rest of the electronics in my trailer are Victron Energy and I have been very impressed. This unit was slightly taller, but installed easily and the battery cable clamps are much more secure. The only trouble I had is related to the ECO mode which monitors the AC load and turns off the inverter if the load is low. When I plug my MacBook into the inverter, it is too small of a load to be recognized by the eco mode. This causes the Mac to start stop charging every few minutes as the ECO mode looks for a load.
