4.0 out of 5 stars Very good True-Sine Inverter, May 11, 2015
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xantrex 806-1210 PROwatt 1000 SW Inverter (Electronics)
Goods:
Compact size.
Transient power is excellent and easily can handle "2x the Power" for a second or two.
Very quiet operation with almost zero AC humming and the cooling fan is not noisy at all.
Front LED Display is handy to check on your power demand and battery voltage.
Very low idle consumption (0.35Amp) Very good to keep your inverter running continuously on a solar system.

Cons:
Positive & Negative terminal struts are not very strong and you need to be careful on the tightening. I stripped off the thread on one post on mine. Also, the lack of plastic protection boots on terminal connectors (POS & NEG) It will be a good safety thing to have.

I have many inverters on my Off-Grid solar system and the Xantrex PROwatt 1000 is maybe my favor one.
Hope my comments will help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Inverter for Off-Grid Cabin, December 6, 2014

This review is from: Xantrex 806-1210 PROwatt 1000 SW Inverter (Electronics)
We use this inverter to power an off-grid cabin in the mountains of Vermont. It runs everything spectacularly, including a high efficiency chest freezer which we have converted into a refrigerator, a 750W toaster, a whole bunch of LED/CFL lights, a cell phone booster, some small fans. Admittedly, we're generally not running all of these things simultaneously, and there may be some fringe scenarios that would trigger an overload such as if the fridge kicks on while the toaster is running, but so-far-so-good for us - it seems to meet our needs very well.

Some things to consider if you intend to use it like this.
1. Get high quality cables to connect the batteries to this unit. We made the mistake of skimping a bit on the wiring at first (we used the minimum recommended 4AWG), and just ended up spending even more money to replace our wires with the recommended 1/0AWG a few months later.
2. If you connect this to an off-grid service panel that has a neutral-ground... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Used it daily for 2.5ish years and it's still going strong!!!, April 20, 2015

This review is from: Xantrex 806-1210 PROwatt 1000 SW Inverter (Electronics)
I got this in June of 2012 and I live off-grid . I used it for a few hours a night until roughly October of 2012 then I had it on all day powering my computer equipment and sometimes entertainment center during the day. (I use solar panels primarily for recharging the batteries.) At night, nightly it powered (powers still) my HDTV, DVD player (when I use it), DirecTV receiver and VCR. It also powers a couple of LED 110 volt lights and other miscellaneous things from time to time.

I would have been in a bad way if this broke down and twice the circuit breaker(s?) popped and I was real worried but I waited overnight and the inverter's power worked again fine.

I had to ground my HDTV and DVD (particularly the DVD player) when using this or too much buzzing.

I almost always turned it off at night and for much of that time I had/have a modified sine wave inverter which I use instead for as much as I can.

The battery cables to it are very thick, I... Read more
