Harness your vehicle's battery to efficiently power office equipment on the road or power tools at a work site. Continuously supplies up to 3000 watts of 120V AC power to 4 AC outlets from any 12V battery or automotive DC source. Includes a PV remote and 25 feet of cable. Super-compact, lightweight metal case design is among the smallest, most rugged inverters available at this power level.
Pros: This inverter took everything I could throw at it... Until it failed. And I have every intention of replacing it with the same model. I powered multiple power tools with it at the same time, and it didn't even struggle. I even powered a 33' Class A motor home off of it and to test the load, I turned on the A/C's in the RV and it was greater then 66% load, kicked the fans on and kept on going.
Cons: It's pricey, but justifiably so.
Other Thoughts: The Inverter failed when it was connected to an RV and the deep cell charging system was being serviced. It was my fault and I inadvertently grounded out the inverter. It tried to provide the infinite amount of amperage my mistake was asking for and before the circuit breakers could trip, I blew out a transistor inside. Like I said, Totally my fault and I have every intention of replacing with the same make and model!

Pros: This unit worked flawlessly, thermally controlled fans were silent (couldn't even generate a big enough load to kick them on), battery and load capacity indicators were seemingly accurate, the free remote that came with it proved very convenient to monitor capacity from a tent, and the overload control works as expected. I powered a dual-element heated blanket and a crock-pot and the load indicator didn't waver at all. I suspect this inverter will perform well under a much heavier load... Next up is a 60" lcd and a mini-fridge for tailgating purposes.
Cons: None that I can think of, it is large but I can't compare its size against other inverters with similar ratings.
Other Thoughts: If you cable this inverter properly (and you want to since this can draw enough to weld with) you will end up spending a pretty penny on cabling. I got 2 4' sections of 0 gauge cable for +/- battery leads, 4 feet of 4 gauge for earth ground (yes, 2 grounds), and a heavy-duty JL Audio fuse block to hook this up which will run around $150 at most car-audio shops. Not a con in any way but something to think about if you're going to get a high-output inverter like this.
