I bought this washer over 6 weeks ago to use on my travels. It is compact enough that it stores in my ensuite (motorhome) when I’m travelling and light enough to lift out when I want to use it. It has paid for itself easily in that time not having to pay expensive laundromat fees on the road. I have washed sheets, towels, curtains, cushion covers as well as clothes in this washer and it has outperformed my expectations. The spinner gets the clothes almost to dry after just a 3 minute spin. I run the washer on my solar setup via a 500W inverter with no problem and 6 loads barely puts a dent in my battery supply. So no mains power required! I highly recommend.
