Just look at the 5yr warranty, that's a good tick, and the current draw , that's another tick....

My primus 60lt had a 3 yr warrenty,and needed it!
Its out of warranty now though, and the 240v regulator died. No replacement part available for it.
So I bought a Waco converter, plug it into 240v and then plug the CIG lighter adaptor into that, that worked....for 2 weeks, now it dosnt.
The converter is fine it works.

Primus still works fine, but only on 12v.

I'd rather have a short warrenty and not need repairs at all, a LA Engel. Proven, only 1 moving part. Of course they are more expensive, louder and use a little more power.

My 1975 engel...
Runs 24/7 only time it is turned off is when it gets moved from the house to the back of the truck...
And back to the house.....
I bought it 20 odd years ago for $700 the only thing I have done is change the seal for the lid.....

Cheers Nanjim
