5 out of 5 eggs12VDC to 120VAC

Pros: Excellent tool for simple 120AC applications. I didn't need high wattage and this one does an excellent job. One of my favorite applications is when camping I can bring a few small tools like a coffee grinder, and blower for filling up an air-mattress, etc. Helps keep small electronics charged with its USB port.
When I tried to overload the inverter it beeps and informs you that wasn't wise. Appreciated the feedback warning. Also the wires are "tinned" at the connection so plugging into the inverter was solid and secure.

Cons: Only con is the wires are relatively short, around 2 feet. But a 12 - 14 gage extension cord makes that really a non-issue.

Other Thoughts: Newegg pulls through again with clean ordering and good shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat inverter

Pros: I purchased this inverter to upgrade from a smaller 350w model. I used it on a road trip this past summer and was pleased with the results. It didn't overheat once. The USB port allowed me to charge my gps and 2 cell phones phones without the need for any special adaptors. Its nice to have a LCD readout of the battery voltage and it has a shutdown function to save the voltage from dropping too low and needing a jump start. I highly reccomend a nicer than standard car battery if you want to use this without the car running, I have an Optima car battery.


I used 4 gauge wires with an inline 200amp ANL fuse to install into the hatch area of the car (car audio stuff). I like how it came with battery clamp cables and didn't even try to pass off a cigarette lighter plug. Car cigerette lighters have small gauge wiring and are typically 10 to 15 amps max capacity. I then ran a USB extension cable underneath the carpet and up between the front seats. I then ran an outdoor style extension co

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to shop around and get the proper wattage for your application. Its always better to use less than the max wattage and run at a lower duty cycle.
