Great resource for portable power. Solid construction, easy to operate and dependable. I have this in a work van to provide power for operating a laptop, recharging batteries, running tools like a small air compressor and lights. Has come in handy in using my tools in assisting stranded motorists to get them back on the road. I like the battery saver feature that will not let it discharge my vehicle battery to the point of not having starting power.
Purchase with confidence. 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.
Excellent product. 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.
This product is awesome. I really love this product. I drive long haul and this product has been great for me as i take my own food with me and it allows me to have a microwave and refrigarator in my truck. I also can run my vacume cleaner an things like my hair dryer. I have had no problems with this product . I have tryed others in the past and they just don't last like tripp.lite products do. I would recommend this to anyone that just wants to buy one inverter and have it last. Thank you Tripp.Lite for such a great product.
Works well under huge stress. We use these units in our High Risk air systems trailers to supply power to all functions in the area as well as power our emergency lighting, sirens and gas detection systems. Hasn't skipped a beat. We put our people's lives in the hands of this unit and we trust it completely!
Solid & reliable power. This is the third Tripp-Lite inverter I have purchased. Yes all of them are still in use. I made the mistake of buying another brand and although it was replaced, the replacement burned up also with almost no load. I operate refrigeration in my pick-up and must have reliable power or lose food. The features listed by Tripp-Lite make for a versatile unit. The reliability of the Tripp-Lite products Is what has made me a return customer.
Did the job for me. I bought this inverter from Amazon.com after my old generator failed to start during hurricane Irene. Hadn't gotten a chance to take it out of the box before we lost power during the Northeast Halloween snowstorm. Cut the clamps off one side of a good set of jumper cables, attached the wires to the inverter, set the inverter on the floor of my garage, glommed the other end to the battery terminals of my car (left idling half in the garage). Plugged in some long, heavy-duty extension cords, and ran my fridge, sump pump, computer, some lights, flashlight and phone chargers for 2 days, using half a tank of gas. Worked just the way I'd hoped. The case never even got warm.
It's easier than ever for do-it-your-selfers to customize sound and security systems, so you don't have to rely on factory gear; aftermarket accessories improve driving enjoyment from vintage add-ons like speaker boxes for classic sports cars or specialty stands for satellite radios that include adjustable cup holders. The list with hundreds of products goes on and on as more niche players create more options for car audio, video and navigation.
