    Pure sine wave inverter best buys

    I'm in need of a pure sine wave inverter and the January sales might throw up a bargain , I'm thinking 300-500 watts will do me for now if anybody spots a deal I'd appreciate the info cheers.

    I use a victron phoenix 800w / 12v pure sine wave. Looking for another to create a redundant setup. Also have a waeco 150w pure sine inverter works great for small things like laptop and led lights @ 240v.

    The victron goes for around 295 Inc p+p and the waeco around 90.

    I've had a cheaper non sine wave inverter didn't last long for continuous use.

    Let us know how you get on with whatever you buy

    I would only buy a German manufactured inverter made ie AIMS SMA or Sunway or Italian ie Helios or a US made inverter ie Platt (which i currently have) ive bought chinese inverters and theyve packed up pretty soon and sending them back under warranty wasnt economical.If youre going to fork out on one ,buy a good one.Good ones arent cheap.

    Not found anything in the sales but bimble have got a Victron pheoix 375w @ 115 looks ok ? Not checked the price anywhere else yet not fantastically efficient @ 89% though.

    Those Sterling refurb units from the ebay link are your best bet.

    Cotek inverters are very good, I have one and just found a 1000w one on ebay for 75. Steal at that price.
