Re: ac refrigerator on inverter
Sweeping comments like this dont really help anyone, Im not having a pop at Cariboocoot but MSW Inverters and especially MSW Inverter Chargers have a place in the market place. They will run TVs ,Satalite Reciever , Power Tools , Fridges , not all but many basic types without fancy digital and electronic controls without problems. Yes there is a fry and die list and these items can easily be avoided with a little research but as I said in an earlier post many people live happily full time with a MSW inverter charger and are happy with there life style. I ran a DR2424E for two years and my mate two years after me. Yes I m on TSW now, but when my permanent home was still a holiday home I was glad to leave an inexpensive but totally adaquate MSW insitu for our needs. The times I needed TSW forcharging laptop and power tools I waited till the genny was running, if MSW inverters were only good for light bulbs I dont think Xantrex would have bothered to upgrade there Dr units to the new TR models with PFC with low volume sales for a light bulb only unit.
