It's a unit which converts alternating current to direct current at the correct voltage. Meaning that if your power were to go out you could hook this 'appliance' and power anything maximum 800W using it. It will get the power using the batteries.

A quick ebay check told me the inverter could be worth anywhere between $25 and $50 depending on the quality of materials used and brand.

Then there's the batteries - it makes a big difference on what type of batteries they are.

I have a couple of inverters rated 1000W myself, I hook them up to an automobile's battery to power up a pc in case of emergencies.

Nothing about the voltage and amperage of the batteries?

Does this look familiar?

A quick ebay / other used sellers found those batteries at around $20-$30.
Do check it out yourself, you'll get plenty of results on google both for the inverter and for the batteries.

Selling price would heavily depend on which country you're in and the condition of the products.

So I guess you might take a chance at selling the whole unit (1 inverter and 2 batteries) for somewhere between $75 and $110? Try craigslist perhaps?
