1000 watt it certainly does not, a surge power of 2000 watt? not in this lifetime, it struggles with a 650watt load on short duration (nomore than a minute every 5-10 minutes)

But what can you say, the thing is priced at 30 or so quid. for a 650watt inverter, that is no bad price at all.

considering I'm using this to power my tools as I am refitting a life aboard motorcruiser, and give it plenty of abuse for 12 hours at a time, it's very impressing. My previous inverter (an 800 watt for around 70 pounds) which did deliver both 800 and 1600 watt peak as stated, blew with less abuse given.

another thing I noticed is how little power it needs to invert 12v to 240v. My running time on one battery has tripled nearly.

The fan makes a loud noise during operations. but that's as far as faultfinding goes, that and an enthousiastic seller stating it handles 1000 watt :)

works well. has a good power wattage. laptops, Wiiu, everything works like a blast. I think most people will need this one, as continuous supply its 500 watt, but can peak 1000 watt. Most 300 watts version can supply a continuous of 150 watts, which cause overheating in long term usage of the inverter, if you need a continuous above 150 watts. This will easily handle a laptop, a wiiu, and mobile phones together.

Good product but the power leads are annoyingly short. I use this from a leisure battery in my campervan conversion. It does the trick for my laptop/phone charging etc. Only drawback is the power leads: 1 they come with crocodile clips that I needed to remove to get a more secure copper ring battery connector onto the wire to make sure it doesn't dislodge. 2 they are quite short! They only just stretch from the battery and horizontally maybe 25cm. This is mildly annoying as you need to flick the switch on the inverter casing every time you want to turn it on which means having access to the battery directly which is often in a hidden away, out of sight location e.g. under a seat. Tricky to reach to put the plug in if it's in an awkward location. It'd be easy to buy some other cables so I'll stop whining.

The 3 pin plug socket is a bit hard to get the plug in but solid enough once the plug is seated fully.

Check the power rating of your appliances. Most kettles are 2200W for example so exceed the output of this inverter. I don't think it's 1000w, I can't run a 600w toaster on it.

A good price though, fan is quiet enough I can sleep next to it, doesn't seem to heat up noticeably from touching the casing when in use.

This inverter is well worth what i paid, found that it works florescent lighting, some dont at all. I bought it for the caravan, only to run the skybox & tv, as some sites have power cuts in high season, runs them no problems at all.Found the fan is a little noisey though, Am not sure if i can extend the leads to the unit,so i can move the inverter were i cant hear it running. other than that N/P.

Arrived in good time i brought this so as i can run electrical goods at a boot sale to prove they work you just need to make sure your electrical appliances are with in the wastage range and if you are going to run any thing for a long time make sure you charge your car battery evey now and then .Would highly recommend now and then.
