Seems like a good toy at the Marina, but 160 Watts are 120v AC plus ineficiency is 36 aH a day...lotsa juice for ice cubes!

I wonder if there is a more efficient model, as my planned solar array will really only output 80 aH a day...and that needs to power everything.

Would be interesting to have this on a dump load, hehehe
