Replacing my IOTA ILC-3045 with Magnum Energy MSH-3012M Hybrid
I kept my IOTA in place, just by-passed the converter, and began using the Magnum Energy (ME) unit to charge my batteries and power my DC circuit. The ME is not only a much more advanced charging system, and it not only replaced my Xantrex 1000 Watt Inverter with a 3000 Watt, it uses a special Hybrid technology. If anyone has had the generator on to use the A/C cooling and then had it brown out or blow a circuit due to over draw when the compressor kicks in and someone is watching TV or god forbid using the microwave & have the A/C on at the same time. The Hybrid technology supplements power from the batteries to aid the generator when it's overdrawn.
