I have used this inverter every day for a year and a half to run my home. I have had people visit my home with no idea that I am operating off my Tripp Lite PV3000HF. All my major appliances are gas but, I run a full size washing machine, lights, computer and satellite dish with a 73" TV and surround sound all at the same time. On hot summer days it easily runs my 110v heat pump to cool my home while I enjoy my big screen TV. I find it pretty awesome that this unit runs my drill press and band saw to construct more frames and mounting hardware to build more solar panels from scratch for my off grid system. I had purchased a generic 3000/6000 watt inverter and killed it on day one. The replacement lasted three days. Money wasted. I come home after a 16 hour shift with no doubt that when I turn on a light ... IT COMES ON! I push everything I own to the max and Tripp Lite has held up to the abuse I have thrown at it. I could go on and on but it is late and I have to get up at 4:00 AM to work another 16 hour shift but... I will wake with the confidence that my Tripp Lite will get me up and going long before most of my neighbors have any idea whether or not the local grid has held up to the same expectations.

Have had one for 10 years that I have used on job sites that had no power. Also used it to charge my cordless tool batteries on the way to jobs. Finally gave out and had to replace it. Got the same thing so that should tell you what I think of it. Would like to think that it would last at least twice as long but what does any more. Good on the job power. Just wish it lasted longer for the price.

Works Great

Comments about Tripp-Lite Tripp Lite PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Inverter:

Bought this unit 2 years ago for a six week road trip to Alaska. Used it to power a small freezer for ice, frozen meats and food, and to preserve the fish we caught in Ak. Made coffee in drip coffee maker every day and powered microwave and lights in camper. Kept laptop charged plus camera batteries, etc.. Worked great no issues. Now I use it as a mobile power supply in my pickup and as an AC back up if needed. Should have bought one years ago.

Comments about Tripp-Lite Tripp Lite PowerVerter Ultra-Compact Inverter:

Excellent inverter, powered my microwave and TV in travel trailer. Used around house to power shop tool's and auto polisher/buffer's, used polisher and buffer simultaneously, power to spare. Will come in very handy when boondocking in travel trailer, not having to run noisy generator is a big plus.
