Hey Groovers, just looking at buying a portable inverter generator for Paul for Christmas. Vera has the plug fitted on the outside and has had dimming lights wired to it as well as a couple of power points. We would mainly want to run the lights, perhaps a DVD player, small cooker etc, as well as just using the generator for odd jobs. Does anyone have one or had any experience with them to pass on their knowledge of the type that would suit us best? It sounds as if the bigger brands such as Yamaha and Honda would be the best bet but thought perhaps one with a smaller price tag might do the trick. Any advice greatly appreciated. Cheers, Chrissy.
