A nice price for 2 burners, but be aware the 1500 Watts is shared between both burners so you cannot have both burners heating up at a high setting (you couldn't run two burners at 1500 Watts on a regular 15 Amp 120 Volt wall socket anyhow). That being said, I can see this as a good thing to build into a table as a warmer or family hotpot use if it's a way of cooking you do often.
Deals on one-burner Induction cooktops rated 1500-1800W show up quite often--maybe once a month or every other month for about $30-$35 (most also include an induction-rated pot). Put "Induction Cooktop" in your Deal Alerts and you'll get a notice when one comes up for sale.
Whatever you use must be magnetic. Some pans are aluminum but have a steel "disk" adhered to the bottom and those are usable. Cast iron is usable. Just be aware that some cast pans have a small ridge around the bottom perimeter and they can sometimes be a problem because they don't allow the entire surface of the pan to make contact with the cooktop.

Looks a bit small for a two-burner, but good deal nonetheless

I'd like to build this into my deck, beside the grill. It would be covered when not in use. Does anyone have an idea how it would survive NC weather, small bugs inside?

There are no moving parts inside just electronics but the bottom part is made out of metal so it will probably rust unless painted or coated with some kind of waterproof/resistant layer. I would probably tape and spray with primer then good enamel spray paint, once that dries I would use clear silicone to seal all the gaps and cracks with thin bead of caulk. Should make it last for a while I think.
Make sure to run all the connection wires inside either ridgid or flex conduit to protect from weather elements (I would do that even if using exterior grade wire, double protection shouldn't hurt and for this one 12GA/20Amp would be better option than 14GA/15Amp).

1500W would be low for a single unit; sharing the same wattage between two makes this far less useful for a lot of people. Personally, I'd rather spend the same amount on two 1800W units.

That said, two units would be less convenient if you just need two pots running on low-medium. Also, the average circuit in the average American home is probably 15-20A, so you probably wouldn't be able to run 2x1800W units on high near each other, anyway.

Seems a bit niche, I guess.

This sounds like a recipe for disaster. There's cooling openings in the bottom that you're not going to want to seal off unless you have thought of a way to dissipate heat.

If you want to use this outside, keep it in a garage or so when not in use or get a cooktop that's made for that sort of thing.

If a magnet sticks to the bottom of your pan it will work.
