    Yes your right.
    If you want one get there early. Just in case. Thay may only get a few in.
    I once wanted an electric guitar and amp for Isaac it was a Thursday special.
    Our branch only got 2 in and i was there first thing in the morning ,and got the last one!

    but not cheaper than replacing the m/h electronic charger..

    it hasn't got inverter technology ... IMO ... use at your own risk..

    Not for connecting to an expensive motorhome though. You need a smooth sine wave generator for a M/H.

    I used one of these for about three years with no problems. Unfortunately when in France I took it apart to enable me to get it in an external locker as SWMBO complained of petrol smells. When I reassembled it, I must have altered the speed controller. Result was I burnt out the charger and a £90 repair bill. I was lucky as I could have had a good fire. I have subsequently purchase a Kipor which meets my needs that the smaller could not.

    I would not discount the generator and would suggest it be used along with a surge protector and allowed to warm up before connecting

    The fact it says charging leads and clips made me believe it has 12v output. ie charge battery, run inverter from battery? Maybe OK for emergency use if camped miles from anyone else:Laughing::Laughing: VMax
