P.S. For some reason, that 350 watt inverter your link doesn't appear to be a regular/current Victron product: https://www.victronenergy.com/inverters
12/350 shows right there in the manual and data sheet.
Picture shows optional IEC-320 outlets is all.

..... Then why isn't a 350VA model shown here on Victron's website: https://www.victronenergy.com/inverters/phoenix-inverter-vedirect-250va-800va

Something maybe doesn't smell right concerning the model on that Amazon link ... or a flat out inconsistency error on part of Victron's official website?

That is the VE direct line with some phone app to monitor the system remotely.

Look under the Phoenix Inverters 180VA - 1200VA

From my understanding the 350V was superseded by the 375V that I now have installed, the 350v came with cables attached inside the 375V had external post for cables.

350 watts just ain't enough for me. I dont use a pure SW for my camper as all runs on mod wave.

I plug RV directly into inverter.

For $100 bucks id rather have more watts. Like the samlex 1000 watt here.

https://www.amazon.com/Samlex-Solar-SAM-........d=1520558031&sr=8-1&keywords=SAM-1000-12

But there are features I specifically need, and want for rv purposes that even the samlex does not have. These are considerations some here fail to recognize if you are doing as I do with powering the whole camper.


1.Needs to be floating neutral as this keeps whole camper floating.

2.No GFI as the RV has gfi's already. That would be like plugging a gfi into a gfi.

3. Low voltage, and alarm. The samlex shuts down @10.5v. Underload this may be problematic.

4. Samlex has load based cooling fans. N/G IMO. only 28-32w starts them... uugggghhh!!!

5. Eff. Sam 90% at 50% cont power...

6 warranty. Samlex only 2 year limited..

So with comparison on these features I search for whats in my budget and criteria above and bought a krieger. Corporate in FL and warehouse NC.

http://www.kriegermfg.com/product/kr1100/

Looks like amazon is out of the 1100's at the moment. Can get used, return for 76 bucks.

https://www.amazon.com/Inverter-Installa........0559089&sr=8-1&keywords=krieger+inverter

What I like.

1.Floating nuetral
2.no GFI
3. Low voltage shutdown 10v or less. Audible alarm 10.6 volt.
4. Fans come on thermal/temp based.
5.90% min eff.
6.3 year warranty
7.1100 watt with 2200 watt surge.
8.<.5 amp standby loss
9. THDistortion 10-45%.. Well it is mod sine.
10. usb ports x2.

Ive run testing with microwave, toaster oven, and mr coffee maker.. All work well... TV,s run fine . Box fan a bit noisy on loaw. Charges phones and lab top. Runs my Cpap machine.

Being "old stock" may be the reason for the low price.
