In the September Harbor Freight sale flyer, the Chicago Electric inverters appear to be replaced with the Cen-Tech inverters.  The price is the same, but there is now a 3000 watt inverter.  The Harbor Freight site does not have the Cen-Tech inverter information, even when using the item number from the sale flyer.  Maybe they are improving their line up?  Anyone heard of this brand and have any knowledge of their specs and reliability?

The 95xxx numbers are the current Chicago Electric Inverters.  They are still on the site.  The 69xxx numbers are not on the Harbor Freight website.  I figured they are the stock numbers for the Cen-Tech inverters.  I am dropping by the local store later today to see if they have any of the Cen-Tech's in stock.  If there are, I will try to get some specs on them and post them later this evening.
