Hi, i am currently using a 48v 1000w modified sine wave inverter supplied with my turbine, its rare that im pulling more than 1000w but i could do with a larger one, 1500w - 2000w to cope with power surge's such as tv ect.

The problem is that i can't find one resonably priced, the navitron 1000w retail's approx 110, does anyone know of one for under 200?

hi Adam,

the quality of an inverter is directly proportional to it's cost and as there is no standard agreed for measuring output one companies, 1500w inverter is another's 2500w. Me I wont look past 'Trace' as i dump all my excess power through the inverter and not DC dumps so I need something that will pass heavy loads for days on end, 'Studer' are good but basic and difficult to program. I believe 'Outback', 'Victron', and 'Sterling' are good and a few people on here have been well impressed by 'Ki point' from Tiawan. Just read the specs very carefully, mines a 4.5kw and that's what it will do all day some call theirs 4.5kw if they'll supply it for 20mins.

Good luck, Paul

I love my KiPoint, and the 10 year old trace still works despite being hit by lightning.  Victron I found a little unrelaible but others love them.

It's not what you make, it's what you use that counts!
