So I was looking for solar panels or solar panel dealers in my area or country (Canada) to lower the shipping cost and I came across this particular inverter/charger. In called Alpha Outback Power SPC III 3000W All-in-One Hybrid Off-Grid Inverter, this particular inverter seem to be similar to the MPP Solar, EASUN Power, and Powland type all in one. This thing has the Outback Power label/logo on it but also an Alpha Technology label/logo so it seems like this is from a recognized company.

Now this inverter is only available locally in Europe, from the websites I've seen its of German origin, but they can ship to other countries(i.e. Canada). None of my local or even in the US websites lists this product.The inverter is kinda in the price range of your typical mppt MPP Solar and also similar specs. Question is who has seen, heard of, or even have this type of inverter/charger?

None of the websites that I've seen does not list what the certifications for this inverter, hell even the websites of the two companies(Alpha Tech & Outback Power) does not list this inverter in their product range. I have contacted Alpha Tech to see what this product is and what the certification of this thing is so hopefully they respond to my e-mail might also contact Outback Power if Alpha does not reply.

Genuinely curious about this product because if its UL listed or whatever might take this instead of the MPP Solar(seems as though I can't buy this anymore on Aliexpress), EASUN, and Powland all in ones.


You can find the spec sheet for this inverter/charger online, can't post it.

Kinda looks like an MPP PIP controller/inverter. Wouldn't surprise me if the internals are the same with a different paint job.

Yeah thats why I contacted the manufacturers to verify this product, because if it is UL listed then it could be better than the MPP ones cuz I don't think they are UL listed. Probably CE listed. Might get this one instead of the MPP PIP because right now the only place I can get PIPsis Ebay and it takes somewhere around 30-40 days with like $200-300 shipping and I can't trust Aliexpress anymore since I boughtsome thing like a month and ahalf ago and its still in China or whatever.

So I got an email back. Alpha Tech didn't reply to my messages but Outback Power Replied immediately. Basically what they said was that the SPC III is the European version of the Alino which is this one http://www.outbackpower.com/products/integrated-systems/alino. The SPC III is only available in Europe and Alino is only in Asia, Australia. Since both are not readily available in North America they are not UL and CSA listed products.

Hope this is useful for others as it has for me.

What do you mean buy it directly from them? Because I went to their website and they don't sell it there, unless I need to contact them directly but otherwise the only place I know I can buy them are either Ebay or Aliexpress.
