Thanks, I already have 4 gauge to the location where I am considering replacing a MSW with a PSW. I'll keep looking.

I believe it is an SB50 connector that will accommodate pins for #6 wire max.

#4 into a 300w inverter is a bit of overkill IMO.

I always read the reviews on products.

This PSW inverter has only one review and it seems fair the way it's worded. Read the reviewer's "Cons:" and "Summary:" comments ... very telling.

I would be a bit leery of purchasing this PSW inverter.

Victron probably makes one of the 3 best inverter lines available. There is nothing that comes close to this quality vs price point in a small inverter.

I've never blown a fuse on any inverter I owned.

Phil,

I see it as someone who is getting their first PSW inverter.

One of that person's cons was the size, another was the weight.

Another was reverse polarity protection. I've never seen an inverter with that feature. It certainly doesn't exist for my Magnum.

My only con is the lack of terminals.

Find me another quality PSW under $100 that has a nice big fat transformer?

Don,

FWIW here's the product manual for the the 300 watt inverter I'm using. Notice on page 45 under "PROTECTIONS" that it has reverse polarity protection (an easily replaceable common automotive fuse) on it's DC input side - IMHO a very important feature for an appliance that might get attached many times to a battery during it's lifetime: http://www.samlexamerica.com/documents/manuals/11001-PST-300-12-24-1215_Web.pdf

I don't know about a "nice big fat transformer" being necessary or not nowadays, but my little Samlex is many years old and has been really knocked around a lot. I just use it on various 12V receptacles in the RV and it has performed brilliantly so far.

P.S. For some reason, that 350 watt inverter in your link doesn't appear to be a regular/current Victron product: https://www.victronenergy.com/inverters
