I purchased this converter in July 2010 and used it 5 times for a total of about 8 hours to power an oxygen concentrator. In September of 2011 I used it to power a 600watt microwave and the microwave started smoking. I unplugged the microwave from the converter and when I got home I bench tested the converter for power. It was putting out 230 volts AC and a modified square wave. Since it was out of warranty I removed the cover and found numerous defective solder joints on the main circuit board. I paid for shipping the unit back to Power Bright and was informed that the circuit board was defective. They offered to sell me a reconditioned unit for $320.00 but would not consider any rebate for the defective unit. If you purchase one of these units for your RV, make sure you use the dickens out of it before the warranty runs out and if possible, check the actual output voltage before plugging any device into it.
This product is defective. It is a design flaw - nobody in the right mind would ever purchase this if they could see how it was assembled inside. Solder connections are not strong enough to support the weight of the heavier components. If you buy this board - IT WILL QUICKLY FAIL! I even returned it to the manufacturer and was told I received a new unit, only to find out when mechanics were installing it in my work truck that it too was defective. Examining the board showed the company lied to me and returned the same original unit that I had the first time. They had attempted to repair the solders but did a poor job. They also soldered a new fuse around the old blown one rather than replacing it. DO NOT BUY!!
This has been a very reliable inverter that I have had in almost continuous usage since I purchased it. I have run everything from an airconditioner, heaters, tvs, lights, radios, popcorn makers, coffee makers skill saws, drill press, grinder, leaf blower weed wacker and digital timers, several times the battery voltage dropped below 10.5 volts, the alarm went off, just like it says in the documentation. It is sine so fans run quiet, digital equipment run the same as grid power. It is basic, no read out for battery voltage or amps drawn. I have a youtube channel
showing many demonstrations of this inverter being used for most of the above mentioned devices. It has stayed on now continuously, except on low battery voltage for over a year. Has been extremely reliable, kept in a stationary location not exposed to excessive heat, salt air or moisture. Has worked well for me.
