  1. There are so many additions but I don't want to create another post on comment box.

    The inverter is a MUST. With the poor power supply in our country, the inverter can do a lot of good. Talking from a blogger perspective, staying online is necessary. Our laptops and mobile device need to be on power.

    Nice post all the way.
