in a nutshell, AC200L is a condensate of AC300 goodness, without the bulky rigid cable… slightly less output and slightly less capacity.
But honestly, as a “long time” AC300 user, I don’t mind loosing 600W output and 1kWh storage if the flip side is portability with real UPS capabilities. For the same encumbrance as AC300, there’s AC500 that’s really worth every dime. I mean, you run a washing machine AND a dryer in parallel. That’s… wow. Considering my other beloved brand, Victron, I’d need more thn the mid-tier 4000W series to achieve the same. Copper plates instead of regular wires, and that kind of trouble is involved.
I think they nailed here… first AC200Max was appealing, but given its DC only input, I skipped. Now they made it UPS capable and 1200W solar enabled, well, maybe AC200L is the best product of the lineup… sharing the podium with AC500 for more “sedentary” use.
