We bought one of these about 2 months ago. We're not yet on electricity (very rural). The first one worked so well, that we decided to buy a second. One now lives in the garage/studio/office we're building, and is used for power tools required for construction. One lives in the workshop where we run our business (mostly over the internet, so powering 2 computers, a printer, recharging cell phones, etc.). Builder friends just visited, and they were so impressed with it that they're intending to buy one too.
