. Not that I mind. We all need a smile now and again. I'll resume after the holiday mayhem.
2.5k PS. I was going to go with the 3k but when I went to order it, there was no longer any reference to it - at all.
Like some other Aims Inverters, specifications show it will power up to 3 times rated capacity for 20 seconds. That’s up to 7,500 Watts for very short periods.
If you plan on using that “surge” capacity even for a couple of seconds, make sure battery bank capacity and cables to inverter can handle really high current (like close to 1,000 Amps) for a few seconds without too much voltage drop, otherwise inverter will trip out due to low voltage.
Good luck with whatever design you pursue.
