Hi Sed,

It works well. Keeps an Engel running on 5 (max cold) for more than a day. I think it’s designed to work perfectly with their solar panels and be continuously recharged.

Where it shines is that it has a built in pure sine wave inverter so running a laptop is very doable and of course it’s a fraction of the weight of my 120a/h AGM battery.

Is it worth the R7 to 8k? Well, you don’t need a separate MPPT charger (built in) you don’t need a separate battery and you score an inverter so I’d say yes.

It only has 44a/h capacity but I have been assured that all of that is useable down to zero so capacity wise it could be compared to a 95a/h deep cycle battery. For me, I want to hook it up to solar when we go camping in December and see that I can have ice for a week.

I also agree that it is lighter and easier to use. It could also be cheaper... I ask Santa for one!
