Decent deal. Never seen it on sale anywhere before, except when HD clearanced them out for full price in my area. I wish it was 300 watts, but you can still power a lot of small items that aren't USB-C powered yet with 150w.

$20 off $100 coupon worked on it on lowes.com as well, paired with another item to get over $100!

I owned one of these things for about a day back when Home Depot was clearing them out. This represents a swing-and-a-miss by Ego. They call it a "modified sine wave" but according to my 'scope it wasn't not much more than a square wave. This limits what you can use with it. Inductive loads like AC fan motors are a no-go. Ego should have spent a few more dollars and slapped a real sine wave circuit on it.

These were on sale 2 weeks ago for 15% off and stacked with other discounts. I picked up the nexus hub and it fried first use.

"probably should not use this on anything expensive", literally what a customer service rep said after explaining issues I had. These things can destroy many devices, they have a super rough output full of spikes of over 220 volts, I went through 4 of them before finally getting through to one of their engineers and learning this was not faulty units, they are just made that way. A $10 inverter generator m Walmart had a much cleaner output than this, I even tested several super old inverters from work and failed to find anything even close to as bad as this unit. Unbelievable. I plugged a $100 lasko fan into this and it fried it instantly, lots of other similar situations I have found on the internet. Avoid at all costs

I have both ego and ryobi battery, and I have the inverter from ryobi. I don't see why this will be better than the ryobi one if they both output 150 watt... you can get the ryobi for much less than this if you do the battery deal......

Wow, I have one of these and that is a worrisome comment. Is there something that I can plug into the device to prevent damage, or should I only use in specific cases? I find it great for camping and charging phones or portable projector. I was about to buy another..
