    Ellies inverter

    I don't think they that bad. I have the older 2000VA unit which got given a dead short on the output and all it needed was a "hidden" fuse at the back replaced. My Mecer 2400VA on the other hand was toast and half the trannies blown inside when the same thing happened. So much for "Short...

    I would have put the fuse/breaker between the 2 batteries (3rd pic 3.jpg) as opposed to between the inverter and battery bank. It's 24v so if something goes wrong and there is a massive current draw if it breaks between the 2 batteries it essentially cuts the supply completely.

    Court rules hidings for kids officially illegal

    Small kids have no understanding. My son, he was 4 maybe 5, was able to unclip the car seat he was strapped to in the back and I stopped at the side of the road twice to clip him back in and “If you do that again you getting a hiding”. 5 mins later “click” so I stopped again, took him out...
