Krieger Power Inverter DIY Installation And Review

I bought this Krieger 2000W Power Inverter around the month of May 2022 from Carousel to replace the existing Erayak 1500W Inverter running in my Solar Panel Systems. To me, it was quite a deal breaking, as it only cost me SGD$78 for the unit, but if I were to purchase through Amazon.com it will cost around USD$189.97 excluding Shipping Fee.

Why I am Looking to Replace My Existing Erayak Power Inverter?

As mentioned on top, the Power Inverter is used to fit into my existing Solar Power Systems. Initially the Goal for my Solar Power Systems is to Support all Electric Power Usage for my Balcony & Master Bedroom Electrical Appliance. At my balcony I have a Samsung Washing Machine and 8 light bulbs. The Total Estimated Power Consumption in Watts are 960W, 800W for my Washing Machine and 160W for my Light Bulbs.

With the existing Erayak Inverter in place, it seems to be a surmounting task for it to cope with continuous load of 1000W. Eventually it broke down in a few occasions due to over heating.

Power Inverter, are big ticket items for me, it will cost around USD $150 to Thousands for a good Power Inverter. For Months I have been searching for a Reliable and cost effective Inverters, finally I found this Krieger KRU2000 Inverter Selling for S$78 in Carousel. I grab it, until today I am still quite satisfied with my purchase.

Some Thoughts On Modified Sine Wave vs Pure Sine Wave?

In general, it will be far more efficient to use a Pure Sine Wave Inverter vs a Modified Sine Wave Inverter. As Pure Sine Wave has a sleek smoother processed waveform, that will protect it from damaging your Sensitive Electrical Appliance. Example Of Sensitive Electrical Appliance such as Amplifier, Laptop, Television etc

But everything in life comes with a cost. Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter in general Cost more than a Modified Sine Wave Inverter.

For my Case since I use this Inverter to Power my Washing Machine, Light Bulbs, Air Conditioner. Modified Sine Wave will be good enough as of now.

Up to date after the installation on July 2022 until now. The Krieger Inverter is used to power my washing machine, BBQ Griller, Light Bulb. Nothing has broken down so far.
