Hey, was thinking of picking this up for camping as our 300w inverter doesn't cut it. Anyone have any feedback on this unit? Seems to be priced pretty well even if I only get a year or two out of it.

I just put a 700w inverter in my camper 2 weeks ago. I recommend getting a pure sine wave inverter personally. I went with GoPower since it matched the solar system already installed on my camper.

What do you recommend for a vehicle, I want to put one in my civic. Do you look at the alternator output to determine the size of the inverter. Want to install it in the trunk to avoid the noise, what gauge wire would you recommend?

I have the 1000W version that I run a fridge with during power outages up north. No issues so far.
need this for our fridge. In the winter we lose power at least 8 to 12 times. some of those times the power is out for 15 to 20 hours. Normally 3 to 4 hours.What setup did you use to power a fridge?

700W/12V = 60 amps. You need gauge 6 or 4. Often people end up spending as much or more on wires than on the inverter. Honda vehicles tend to have a small battery. It might not be powerful enough. Check owner's manual for alternator rating.

Promos been ended for a month.
You make it seem like they were saving stock for the day after the promo ended.

You could have also asked for a rain check at your local store if they didn't have stock.

To be clear for other folks, you really, really don't want to run a fridge on anything other than a sine wave inverter (and ideally a good one at that)

Does this plug into the battery directly? I think the typical cigarette lighter socket supports much less wattage (e.g., 400W).

If cigarette lighter socket has a 25 amps fuse then 25 X 12 = 300 watts max.

I have the pure sine wave inverter hooked up to a 100ah AGM deep cycle battery. The system is recharged by a Renogy 200 watt 12V solar suitcase: https://ca.renogy.com/200-watt-12-volt- ... h-voyager/. This is a bare minimum system and won't run much more than our 18 cu. ft. freezer/fridge, but for 3 to 4 hours for you should not be a problem.
