    Great Back-up

    After last years power outage's so glad I have one,m I hatch a lot of bird eggs and can not take a chance on losing over 300 eggs on my incubator like last year...Several batteries and my new 410w keep me and many other folks happy on healthy chicks.

    Well Built, Great Value

    First, I find it ironic that one has to pay $30 for a "kill-a-watt" tool to read how many watts standard home devices use to figure out what to unplug when this does it for $10 more and gives you portable power! We bought this to go camping and fill up our aerobed and it did it with gusto. When I tried to use the aux plug in the truck and turn on the bed, it immediately said low battery. This is nice because it wouldn't let me blow the fuse in the truck and the cig lighter adapter which this inverter certainly is capable of. Most cig. lighter fuses are around 15-20 amps and this will draw 40+ amps if you plug in something that draws that much. When I put the clamps on the battery posts, it worked seamlessly and told me the bed was using 141 watts. What a great tool! 2 for 1 :) A few years ago I paid the same price at radio shack for an inverter that was 60 watts and this one is 400. Amazing. Just remember, anything that makes heat will probably not work with any of these inverters unless it is a tiny amount (glue gun - solder iron). So no coffee pots, George Forman grills, microwaves, etc. The wattage rating on the item (if it has it) can clue you in. Good luck!

    Power at a great price

    I bought this to replace a 10-year-old inverter we use in the car and on camping trips. I love the features that come on this inverter that usually are only found on higher-wattage inverters - Volts In, Volts Out, Wattage (power used). I can tell exactly how much my devices are drawing through the inverter. When I start getting closer to the 410W capacity, I will switch over to a direct-wired setup. Right now, I am using the power outlet in the vehicles, as I like to move it between vehicles. I have yet to use the USB port for charging, as I am heavily invested in the USB car charges (finally have all USB devices using the same micro-USB plug, so only one adapter is needed), but am glad to have the flexibility in the future. Even though it is plastic, it is well-constructed. It relies on the fan more as the plastic housing does not allow for much passive cooling like aluminum housings on other units do. There is no external fuse, so if you ever do blow the internal fuse, or have some other problem, you will be hard-pressed to determine the root cause. My only complaint is that the 120v outlets on the top of the inverter instead of the end, like so many others. I keep the inverters under the front of the driver's seat so that it is out of the way of my feet, but can access the outlets as needed. With the outlets on the top, this makes the inverter stick out too far into the footwell area for my comfort on long drives. I don't really have another convenient place for it. However, the other benefits outweigh this, especially at this price. There are cheaper units out there. However, after having used friends' lower-end units, I would spend the $10 more for this and be perfectly satisfied, especially knowing how much power you are actually using.

    GREAT FOR XBOX 360

    I BOUGHT THIS POWER INVERTER FOR A ROAD TRIP WE MADE TO CALIFORNIA (1,500 MILES FROM HOME) IN HOPES THAT THIS UNIT WOULD WORK TO POWER UP A XBOX 360. I READ MANY ARTICLES OF PEOPLE PUTTING THAT IN ORDER FOR XBOX 360 TO WORK YOU HAVE TO USE SOME EITHER MODIFIED SINE WAVE OR A PURE SINE WAVE. NOW I DONT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO BUT ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT THIS PARTICULAR ITEM WORKED PERFECT DRAWING ONLY 140-150 WATTS (ON DISPLAY METER) FOR HOURS AND I EVEN CHARGED TWO CELL PHONES ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I HAD TO WIRE IT DIRECTLY TO THE BATTERY BC THE CIGARETTE PORT DOES NOT PROVIDE ENOUGH POWER. AFTER IT WAS ALL SAID AND DONE THE POWER INTERTER WAS SITTING UNDER THE DRIVER'S SEAT AND OPERATES VERY QUIETLY....

    A must have for camping!

    I purchased this for our recent camping trip. It is really great, so easy to use. We were able to charge all our cell phones, laptops, even run a CPAP machine off of this overnight. Perfect!
