            This unit drained my vehicle battery in less than 8 hours. 1 video camera not in use at all times and a police scanner on the system. Thought it would handle the very small load. The old fashion kind never did this. This unit also uses a small fan to cool itseld every 30 seconds which the sound is annoying.

                This unit was purchased to power a 90 Watt laptop while traveling. It is more powerfull than needed, but it has the additional readout that helps monitor the battery input and load output. This makes this unit very helpful. It has powered the laptop without any problems.

                Product is unreliable. I am sending back to the manufacturer. Blown fuse renders product useless.

                    A MISTAKE ON MY PART CAUSED THE FUSES TO BLOW. THE REAL BAD THING IS THAT THE FUSES ARE SOLDIERED TO THE BOARD AND CAN NOT BE REPLACED BY THE AVERAGE PERSON. I FOUND ANOTHER INVERTER FROM ANOTHER MANUFACTURER THAT IS ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THIS ONE, BUT THE FUSES ARE EASY TO ACCESS FROM THE BACK IN CASE YOU DO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID.
