The brilliance of these inverters is not only in the quality and reputation of Victron, but also in their unique "eco-mode" setting that allows you to leave the inverter on constantly. In this mode it draws a low .8watts of power as it sits and waits for you to plug something in. At this point it will turn itself on, and charge your laptop, phone, or whatever. Then it shuts itself down when your accessory is unplugged.
