Outstanding, well engineered/designed product
Excellent unit - top quality engineering, materials, design, construction, and user interface. Fits my needs perfectly for one unit to function as both a GPU for avionics database uploading and other tasks and a battery charger/minder/maintainer that is well regulated to the charging environment (including things like temperature compensation, desulfinating, etc. The side storage chambers are perfect for the various cables.

Great GPU and keeps the battery topped off
Love the GPU. We use it with our kelly aerospace air conditioner to pre-cool the plane before starting the engine. We also love having it to mind the battery to give it a longer life and avoid any draining. We are based out of Houston, TX so this thing is put to work a lot and has never let us down.

Awesome GPU
This GPU has a lot of juice to power up my Piper Meridian when doing avionics work. The charging function is also critical to keeping the battery topped off for each start.
