Product Quality Inspection
  • Is the TV of good build quality and free of any visible defects? Yes
  • Notes About Quality N/A
  • Is the TV clearly marked with a standard nameplate? Yes
  • Notes About Nameplate N/A
  • Does the TV's packaging include appropriate information? No
  • Notes About Packaging No gross weight, package dimensions or date of manufacture.
  • Does the TV come with appropriate documentation? No
  • Notes About Documentation No warranty information or quality assurance certificate
Off-Grid Compatibility
  • Is the TV able to function properly during and after the voltage fluctuation test? No
  • Notes About Voltage Fluctuation Test Sample would not function correctly at -15% (10.2V) of nominal working voltage
  • Does the TV have its own low voltage disconnect (LVD) & reconnect (LVR) circuit or similar automatic shutdown mechanism to protect batteries from unintended drainage? Yes
  • Notes About LVD and LVR Test As the voltage reduced the picture and sound went off at 10.3 volts, and Standby mode was also entered at 10.3 volts. When the voltage was increased, the set would come out of standby and function normally when 10.5 volts was reached. This was considered to be a correctly operating LVD/LVR function.
  • Does the TV have a timer function which enables automatic shutdown after a set period of time? Yes
  • Is the LVD/LVR/timer function adequately described in the user manual or product packaging? No
  • Does the TV have any power saving features? Auto Power Off
