  1. Seems a good inverter. Anybody with installation experience? How about the presence of elco’s as those limit the lifetime?

    • As prerelease content, only technical specifications and have been obtained to this point without working experience. Presence of electrolytic capacitors? Like most inverters most probably. Although, a 10-year (5+5) product warranty should assist with such a concern. What we do know is that the compatible battery will not be the LG Chem RESUH models as in the single-phase variants. It will be a Huawei built battery. With your interest in this prerelease content Bas, a review has been prioritised. Thanks for contributing.

  2. I have had the 10kw version of this for several months.
    Since the review the software platform has improved and its now very impressive. Especially when combined with the Huawei consumption meter.

    Its output is fantastic. Its also interesting to note that it does not run particularly hot.
    For anyone with a technical background who appreciates quality these should be on the short list. In particular the design devoid of fans and LCD’s is the first thing that stands out, you then have extremely impressive tech spec’s in terms of operating voltages and protections such as lightning, the warranty has a 48hr turn around commitment and very few exclusions and the icing on the cake is they include IV curve diagnosis so you can be alerted to panel faults.
