what is that 1000 watt one for the same price that pops up below this one?

The red BESTek unit? I would pass on that unit. I doubt it could really supply 1000 watts continuously. No UL, no FCC, no mention of pure sine wave ... and only 5 lbs? Even if they're using newer high frequency designs, the transformers should still be heavier than that.

For modified sine, I like the advertisement for the orange Ampeak unit that shows up looking at the BESTek ... ETL tested, they're not the UL but better than nothing. Nice sturdy input terminals, volt meter built in, support for a remote, and best of all the advertisement is up front about it being a modified sine unit. On the flipside, only 3.4 pounds??? Sheesh

I went with the krieger Mod sin. UL and CSA standard...

1100 watts is really all you should need..

Hi LittleBill,

You will need to do an adapter of some kind. The Victron comes with #8 wire (or maybe #6) which goes inside the case.

I'm going to try running it on cigarette lighter, too, but will limit my demand to a laptop and heating pad.

I'm concerned about the inrush current.

30amps is a lot to expect from a cigarette lighter socket

Valid point.

My laptop has a 240 watt charger, too much to run through a cigarette lighter. I always assume worst case usage when hooking something up.

The 12/180 has a 12v cigar connector.
Can't find a comparable price though.

Heck, 5 amps is too much for most ciggy plug designs.

They make for a detestable electrical connection.

Everything runs better when they are removed from the circuit.

I've been happy with a Wagan elite 400 watt PSW. I've watched it provide 435 watts continuously. Very small size.

It comes with a ciggy plug, but says not for use with more than 120 watts. I'd halve that number.

agreed, i usually design the same way, you can get about 100-130 watts off the cigarette.

Hi folks,

I find this an amazing deal at 90 bucks. I purchased one and it is double the weight of the inverter I was using before.

Don,

I keep looking but don't see weather the inverter is PSW or modified SW.
Wouldn't this inverter from Harbor Freight, also be of good value?
I've had the 750 from HF on line for 3 or 4 years, with no failure.
