I have somewhat specific needs for an inverter
, and I was wondering if maybe I could get some feedback on them...
I don't use much electricity, but what I do use is for electronics
. I am currently using a modified-sine inverter
but I suspect that it is causing some problems.
I only have a 400w inverter and honestly it handles almost everything I need - admittedly it would be nice to be able to run a power drill or a vacuum cleaner, but my every-day needs are very, very low.
My *biggest* complaint with the current
inverter is the incredibly annoying low voltage alarm
... it goes off LOUD and LONG at 11v. it would be nice to have an inverter that could either handle slightly lower voltages or that had some kind of ability to change the alarm
So yeah. I am shopping
for a pure sine inverter - nothing crazy, maybe 1000w. A little bigger wouldn't be a problem, as long as the quality was high and the current
draw was reasonably low when the inverter usage was low or non-existant.
I'm looking at the Xantrex ProWatt SW inverter. Thoughts on this? Other alternatives?
