Nope, didn't see anything about warranty. I do like it and works well for working around the boat.

Re: Inverter

saygudday - i've had this basically cheap square wave inverter for at least seven years now and i've yet to find anything it can't run. i've used it on the 600 watt shop vac, power drill, dremel tool, flat screen tv, tv signal booster, fans, and computer. probably more i can't remember.

if you're just charging small batteries like in your vhf or electric shaver or such, i find a small inverter of maybe 100 watts or less is a better idea. you don't lose as many amps to inefficiency with the smaller inverter. i hook mine up to a cigarette lighter plug wired off the 12 volt panel.

Actually I was just thinking something similar. The reason my last inverter was 1000W was because I only saw a few that were smaller and they looked a little fragile. I think I'm going to take another look at smaller ones again. I can probably get several smaller ones for the same price as one larger one. Thanks for the input.
