Revised Review  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Manufacturer states
"Up to 45 Amps Total Current."

The one I received has a 40 amp input fuse which is highly optimistic considering the use of 15 amp inserts crimped onto 16 gauge solid copper wire. The wire is then bent over onto the trace and heavily soldered in puddles to PCB traces.

Which must be the "*Solid Copper Bus Bar instead of just PC Lans" which is mentioned in the Ebay listing.

"*Insulated to eliminate shorting out battery or generator" The power poles housings are crazy glued to the PCB (poorly as the unit I received several of the housings had already broken free). The insulation is must be the black foam rubber laid over the top.



"*Half the Cost ($8 per output compared to $16 for others)"

I got what I paid for. The well known more expensive distribution panels are made of metal not poorly hot glued plastic and pcb covered with black foam rubber "insulation.

I was offered a refund. There is something good to be found in most everything.
