    • Grrrrrrr


      Cannot contact bad service

    • Growwatt 12kw


      The build quality is very poor, they heat up way to fast, the mppt charge controllers only charge with half the amps it claims to.

    • Poor inferior Chinese product, I do not recommend

      I have been using inverters for about 30 years and now I decided to upgrade to solar and bought a 5kva pv Growatt inverter as it was less expensive and seemed to have lots of features. It was a disaster! Everything that could go wrong did. All sorts of error codes coming up one after the other, repeated overload errors without overloading, computer errors and the worst part of it is although it was within warranty they refused to replace and the customer service is the worst I have received. It was taken and returned “fixed” and I was very reluctant to take it back but had no choice, .... within two weeks it had packed up again! I don’t know about the others but the 5 kva is a no go area. Very very unreliable it did not work properly for a single straight seven days.I had to take it down again and I’m now looking to buy a victron inverter which is double the price but worth it for peace of mind.Never again .
