Question Charles River Products??

Does anyone out there have any experience with these products? It's a big company, but I don't seem to find many folks using their products. Are they good, bad, what?

Thanks,

TJ

Oooops guess I should have been more specific. I mean the Charles River who makes inverters, transformers, battery chargers and the like.

Regards,

In general, Charles Industries (Marine Group) seems to favour basic “mature” technologies; but their manufacturing standards are first rate.
Expect their products to be very well-built, but employing woefully less than state of the art engineering designs.
