    I can probably get my hands on a RCT-axpert 3kva.
    Next up. A battery box like the ellies one.
    Good choice.

    My budget is seriously strained, but this needs to be resolved.

    I found this inverter: https://doodah.co.za/inverters/33809...er_ouput-5000w

    With 2 of those Ecco 120ah deep cycle batteries, it should be enough to keep a few essentials on, right?

    I spent a long time looking, and this is the only inverter I saw that has an AC input.

    This solution appears to offer nearly double the Watts that these of the shelf solutions from Ellies, and a Mecer one I saw as well(battery box on wheels with inverter on top). They are only about 1200 to 1440 watts.
    Too little to run a few laptops, a few extra screens, and the entertainment for several hours.

    Your thoughts?
    Anyone ordered from DooDah? I'm interested in the gel batteries they add, but google says scam

    Based on the reviews on Hallo Peter, I will never even consider using them
