I use a MSW inverter that can produce 2.5kw (5kw peak, 120vac).
I've tested it with a 1500w space heater , and the inverter heat sink doesn't even get warm.

I have to conclude is unit is very efficiently turning DC into AC.
So, instead of trying to make AC loads work off DC, I'm just going to use AC.

I'm also thinking buying a 230vac MSW inverter (48dc input) to use with
my solar+bank for powering my Sanyo AC heatpump.
I might be able to charge up the bank and cool (or heat) my home at the same time.
Depending on the sun..
