When I first got this little thing I thought it was a great buy. Unfortunately it only lasted 3 camping trips or about 30 hours of use before malfunctioning. I was out camping and it was at night, I had some lights hooked up to the inverter and the low battery signal beep came on. When I went over to the inverter and tried to switch the inverter off, the LCD display would go blank, but the inverter itself would not switch off. I had to physically disconnect it from the battery in order to stop the beeping low battery signal and physically get the inverter to power down. I charged the battery that night and tried hooking the inverter up again in the morning with a fresh battery but still had the same problem. After that weekend, I felt this was very unfortunate that I hadn't bought the extended warranty; because I didn't use the inverter until after the short warranty period had already expired. I would not recommend this inverter nor any other products similar to this one. I would recommend if you are in the market for an inverter a PURE SINE inverter for around an additional $200 with the capabilities to run laptops, motors, ie: blenders, mixers fans, etc., and other electronics you would not be able to run on this particular inverter, would be well worth the money. And get an extended warranty!!!
