    May I ask the group for some procurement advice?

    I am looking for a 1000 watt inverter (115 VAC from a 12 VDC
    marine or traction battery) that gives a "modified sine
    wave" output, literally 6 square waves in a cycle (lots or

    Where might I find one in Canada? (New or used.)
    What can I expect to pay for this unit in Canada?

    Also, what is a recommended brand of battery charger and
    likely Canadian price? I don't want to trickle charge it
    continuously to avoid gassing - I want a "charge and switch
    off" unit, or similar - so automobile chargers are out.

    BTW, this is not my professional field even though it looks
    very simple technically.

    Many thanks for all replies.
