Today we make a review on a module that might be the best 1000w power inverter on the market today. Could that really be the case? Well, if we look at the popularity on this particular one it is easy to agree that it is true. Let´s look on this BESTEK beast and see what it got and why it is so popular!
Let’s talk about it!
Product: BESTEK 1000W Power Inverter Dual AC Outlets 12V DC to 110V AC
Type: modified sine wave
Power rating: 1000 watts
Cheapest place to buy: amazon.com
My rating: 9.7 of 10
Introduction (and about use)
Solar energy systems have several components connected together to give the output of clean renewable energy. Solar panels are the generators. they generate solar energy by converting sunlight into usable electrical energy. Connected to solar panels is the solar charge controller.
This device is used to charge the batteries with the required charging current. After that, there come the battery banks connected to the solar charge controller.
Battery bank has two components connected to it. One is the charge controller and the other is the inverter.
Our product review is on an inverter today that has proved to be the best of the 1000 watts inverters. Bestek 1ooo watts is an inverter of a bigger power rating than the one reviewed earlier.
This inverter is designed for a 12 volts battery bank. It usually takes 12 volts DC and converts it into 110 -120 volts AC which is the ideal voltage that is usually used by most of our home electrical appliances.
For this particular inverter, it has a very attractive color RED. The color and the inverter performance and efficiency blends in just fine. Not that the color facilitates the inverter efficiency but the color makes it unique.
The inverter has two AC outputs, this gives you the liberty to distribute energy to your loads effectively. This particular inverter gives out a 1000 watts continuously to keep your laptop, tablet, TV, DVD players, game systems, microwaves, pumps, and other electronics.
Its peak power is up to 2400 watts for a few seconds giving you the allowance to drive heavy appliances such as motors on this inverter.
Note that you should make sure that the motors surge power is at a power rating that can be handled by the inverter.
- BESTEK is a well-known brand in the USA and produces all sizes of inverters that are recommendable.
- Bestek 100 watts produces dual 110 volts continuously to keep you powered all day long.
- It has a protection mechanism. The inverter has an automatic shut down mechanism for overloads and low battery features.
- For the protection of connected loads(electrical appliances), three external fuses in case of short circuits the fuses blow out.
- Its rugged body construction helps the inverter withstand harsh conditions and makes it also to be used outdoors and in campsites.

• 1,1000W Power Inverter
• 2, Battery Clamp
• 1, Car Cigarette Plug
• 1, User Manual
Be aware: The inverter is made more desirable With 18 Months Warranty and Provide Friendly, Easy-to-Reach Support.
- This battery is designed for 12 volts only do not use it in a 24 volts battery bank.
- For loads up to 150 watts, it is recommended that if you are using the car battery, use the cigarette lighter and for loads, more than 150 watts, use the battery directly from its terminal.
- It is very normal for an inverter to heat up especially when drawing a lot of current from it. Avoid placing it in more external heat.
- It is also recommended that during maintenance blow or replace the fan or else if dust builds up it becomes a load too to your inverter.
Inverters come in different size and different power ratings. It becomes difficult to source for a good inverter for your system or outdoor use while you have no knowledge about inverters.
I recommend that you go for inverters that have been reviewed and got a good rating from it´s users from amazon (or from here), and always consider the positive ratings for the product you want to purchase.
I think this I have made my Point pretty clear on this one, there is no need to say no more.
BESTEK 1000W Power Inverter Dual AC Outlets 12V DC to 110V AC Car Inverter is one of the best inverters you can find for your system.
John (Or Ephraim),
I am currently in the process of buying a cottage. I have never needed to buy solar panels or inverters before so excuse my lack of knowledge. So since the BESTTEK 1000w interver has two 120AC outputs does that mean i’m going to need an addition solar panel and inverter to run more than two things at a time that require the standard 120VDC? Also, are the inverters water proof or do i need to build something to store them in? Finally, what other units are comparable to the this unit from a performance perspective?
First, the inverter size is not determined by the solar panels. solar panels are determined by the battery bank. take for an instant you have a television set-100 watts, a radio80 watts and a DVD player 50 watts that you want to power. the size of the inverter would be the total of this appliances ie 100+80+50=230watts. 230 watts will be the size you would need but to cater for losses it is recommended the inverter be 30% more. In that case, you can use a 300 watts inverter.
So for our bestek inverter take everything that you need to power but do not exceed 900 watts so that you won’t overload the bestek 1000 watts. The two outputs are to enable you to be able to distribute your loads evenly. If your electrical appliances exceed 900 watts then you will have to look for a high rated inverter such as Power Bright ML3500-24 3500 Watt 24 Volt DC To 110 Volt, Whistler 3000 Watt Power Inverter XP3000i etc
Buying a good quality and reliable inverter is of the utmost importance. When we decided to use solar photovoltaic panels to supply our casa in the ‘parque natural’ in Granada province, Spain, we had problems.
Two out of the three inverters which we bought from the UK we not functioning properly. We had transported the whole system over to Spain. Luckily we bought the 3rd inverter as a standby. We got the other two checked out whilst the 3rd inverter kept us going.
I would say the inverter has to be really reliable as well as rugged and this Bestek Dual AC looks very good value for money. If you are having to rely on an inverter, it makes sense to buy a spare. It could be very inconvenient if your one inverter fails. Great post! Ches
thank you! Yes you are right, they are very important and buying two is of course a great idea. Glad you found the review useful, thanks again for your comment
Thank you for reviewing this Bestek inverter, which has 1000 watts output. Since, the inverter comes from the reputed BESTEK brand, so there shouldn’t be any quality or performance issues.
And the 1000W is good for running several devices simulteneously.
Thank you for leaving a comment!
Appreciate that more than you might think, hope you find the site helpful in general aswell!
Thank you again!
