It is a square wave

Thank you for the reply. I believe square wave output will not be that good for sensitive equipment like televisions or wifi routers. Maybe a recommended list of gadgets that can be safely used with the device would help buyers.

Most things with an internal AC-DC conversion should work ok. Of course some types of equipment are more sensitive than others.

Simple AC devices like motors and resistive loads should work fine.

We tried to use it on a small fan camping. The fan says it was 0.55 amp. It ran but sounded funny and then in less than an hour started to melt.

It does not seem to play well with variable speed motors

If you decide to open up the fan housing, take note of what you find. If something looks fried take a pic and post it here. I had a similar problem with a fan with the small inverter and what happened was one end of a resistor on a circuit board overheated and the wire of the resistor unsoldered from the circuit board.
