    Nowadays there's so many things that are from China and expensive, where do you buy a good quality inverter that will do the job?

    Is it okay if I get one from Harbor Freight and get the warranty?

    I bought one from Napa like $500 maybe 10 years ago still works great

    Not cheap but it has never failed like some of the cheaper ones do with or with out a warranty

    Cobra is a pretty well known brand. My first 2500 watt inverter that I bought from them lasted several years.

    Pretty sure regardless who the manufacturer is, most inverters come from China.

    PRO 2500W free shipping & 2 year warranty

    I just have a yellow 3000w inverter from love's. It will operate an angle grinder and the refrigerator if the truck is running. Hook it up with 0 gauge cables and an appropriate sized breaker and you'll be fine. SOME electronics require a 'pure' or 'true' sine inverter, though. Those are a bit more expensive and the higher wattage ones can be found at rv centers.

    I have a Schneider electric/xantrex unit. Good quality stuff and been around a long time. Same as I used in my house.

    Edit: stick with pure sine wave. Itis easier on electronics in the long run.
