Looks interesting. One problem I see is it assumes 70 degree supply water temperature to provide 120 degree usable water. It does state they can be run in parallel for more heat and can use preheated water. Guess you would need a tempering tank. Might not be practical for all but interesting, none the less.

Watts in equals heat out...nothing magic here.

Give me some Specs!

If the price is really right, it might work for a shop bathroom. Doubt it is less than a small 110 volt water heater.

I use this in a outbuilding. Works a treat for me. :)
Maybe not this exact one, but similar:
