Reliability not to industry
2 Star Review   By Inverter Installer on Provantage (Channel Engine) - Sep 9, 2013   

Strengths: Cost, surge capability, output voltage will run everything including hair blower with hot temperatures. FC is better then modified AC (modified AC is not recommended).

Weakness: Aluminum #2/0 connector on copper cable causes electrolyisis. Only 1kW battery charging capability --bad!, Efficiency is best 92% approx. w/o fan. 86% efficiency aprox. expected. normal. High noise

Factory aluminum battery connector will cause copper cables inside to heat up burning up insulation, if your are not aware it could cause a fire. I have seen melt the plastic housing externally.

Do not buy, no factory support
1 Star Review   By randy on Provantage (Channel Engine) - Apr 19, 2011   

Strengths: Well built

Weakness: Doesn't last

My APS2424 unit is less than 3 years old. After replacing batteries I found the unit will not charge them. After talking to Tripplite technical support I am told they do not have any repair facilities here in the US and there are no other options except to buy new. Don't buy Tripplite products!
