Ac frig on solar, test run. Kilowatt is saying .1* amp draw on ac which is 1.* amps dc. Everyone hour or two compressor turns on and draws 5 amps ac / 50 amps dc but only for a minute.

Mini AC Refrigerator on 2 HF Kits / 4 -110 AH Batteries plugged into a HF Mod Sine 750 / 1500 Watt Inverter.

I would be careful using the HF Inverter on that fridge.

I know. However had to see if it would work. Thursday coming doing major upgrades, including inverter. And changing to a superconductor rather than compessor fridge.

thermocouple fridges generally draw 50-75 watts, at all times, I would suggest this:

I can verify that this works out for myself using a 5 cubic foot unit for 150 watts per day!

im using an older compressor mini fridge w freezer.  surprised me that a the 750w centrex inverter can handle the start up.  tested it only to see if it would work and everything worked great, but until i get more panels i plugged it back into the grid.  45w harbor freight, midnight solar classic, 4 -220ah batteries.
