I've actually talked to the owner of this company and it's a really neat product. If you chose the inverter option, you'd have to have a pretty stout batt bay. But the main purpose of this unit is to really reduce the amount of amp draw when starting AND while running and is a very good option when you don't have shore power. Like boondocking.
With soft start, you can run one AC off a Honda 2200i 15amp generator and with 2 Hondas in parallel you can run 2 AC's if you wanted to.
Their website actual shows some amp draw and run charts that's pretty impressive.
