Advanced monitoring capabilities will alert you if oil and gasoline are low. Several outlets to connect a number of electronic devices to the generator.
Power supply may be limited for larger applications.
Exterior bars add an extra degree of protection when using the generator outdoors. Comes with rarer power outlets for use with specialty tools and devices.
Not powerful enough to run larger appliances and tools.
Compact yet powerful, with excellent fuel efficiency. Maximum noise is only 57 dBA, so it’s great for campsites. Can be paralleled to increase supply. 120V output, plus 12V DC charging option.
Some fuel supply/starting issues. Honda recalled, and appear to have resolved the problem.
Excellent reliability from the 389cc 4-stroke engine. Easy electronic starting. Crash bars for protection and wheels for portability. Wide ranging connectivity for power tools and other devices. Can supply 120V or 240V.
Very few. Expensive (but capable of powering your home in an emergency). Noisier than inverter generators.
Compact design makes it highly portable. Doesn't take a lot of fuel to operate. Having 1000 watts makes it ideal for powering small appliances. Not very noisy when running.
Not a good choice if you expect to have heavy-duty power needs.
