Does anyone have experience with these inverters? It seems like a solid product, and with plenty of power it won't have any trouble managing a 7 kW EV charge from a battery.

It's good in that it's a DC coupled 3-phase hybrid inverter, but man its not cheap. Best part of $7000. Not sure I can justify installing this beast, but it's nice to know there are 3-phase inverters out there which can work on battery voltages less than 400 V DC.

Not directly at all. However, I've heard more than a few grumbles over at the Power Forum.

Every inverter has its failures, and many suppliers can be obstinate about replacing expensive parts that blow up. But I would hope for better, especially at the price.

Hmmm, wonder if they fixed their corrosion issues by now. We're a long way from the sea but the inverter would be pretty exposed...
