The Whistler 1200 watt inverter is truly a lifesaver when camping in your RV in the middle of nowhere. Providing ample AC power to run most everything in my RV. Would recommend product.
I bought this interver for my truckdriver husband. He uses this to power a refridgerator,a microwave and also a tv. It supplies more than enough power than he'll ever need. He is extremely happy with it. If you're looking for a good inverter, this is it.
Inverter has built-in safety and automatic reset features that some competitor's products do not have. Easy to understand and set up. Mine is installed in the basement as part of a sump-pump power backup system and has been "on" for months and ready to kick in when needed in case of a power outage.
Have it attached to three Deep Cycle Marine Walmart batteries (red to red, black to black) and I'm very satisfied and recommend it highly. Great price doesn't hurt either!
I work in the swamps in Southern Louisiana. I needed an a.c. power source to run my test equipment. All I have to do is hook up the battery on the air boat or welding machine and I'm set. Sure wish that the cables were included with the inverter.
I can run my circular saw from my car battery! Very handy. 1200 watts is a good compromise between a more expensive higher power and a low cost but enough power to run hand tools. I was concerned that I would need a true sine wave inverter but this unit runs everything I've tried so far.
My sons and I are avid outdoorsmen who are constantly building something in the woods. These items are inclosed deer blinds, feeders, bird houses,and the many different type electric tools we use. I originally bought this inverter as a back-up for home use in case of a power failure. I can plug my deepfreezers in it and keep my food safe by alternating them one at a time.
first of all this product is a life saver. i am in the military currently deployed overseas in Iraq. with the use of this product in my vehicle i am able to use some equipment that i wouldnt be able to use because of not being closer to a generator or some other source of power
I had purchased a 400w inverter from Sam's Club 3 years ago. It lasted until just a few months ago- an impressive service record for a $35 inverter.
Fast forward to last week-
My new 1200w inverter arrived in the mail. Like I do with all my new gadgets, I took it apart and examined the components. Everything inside is top-quality, and the biggest perk for me was the new fan design- much better, quieter and longer lasting than the 400w unit's fan.
I hooked it up in my truck and plugged in all my computer equipment and tools. Unlike the 400w inverter, this unit has relatively low line noise. There is still a buzz to be heard over ungrounded audio components but it is leaps and bounds better than the previous model.
I haven't had a chance to use the unit with more than 500w load, but so far it runs very cool and quiet- and efficiently. So far I'm estimating that efficiency is about 70% (watts out/watts in).
