Recommendations on an inverter please

Postby Baldbloke » Sun Jun 28, 2020 10:35 pm

Hello all
Does anyone have any recommendations on makes of inverters please.
I need one for a work vehicle.
It will need to be a pure sine wave but looking online it all seems to be a bit of a minefield to find the right one.
It will need to have decent wattage to run the odd power tool but it will mainly be used to charge laptop and batteries (for power tools).
I have an auxiliary battery already installed.
Is there a reliable brand out there anyone would recommend?
Will...

I ended up purchasing a Victron energy 12/1200. Going to wire it up at the weekend.
