Some of you may have read a thread or four of mine, regarding the Honda EU20i Inverter Generator. Unfortunately, I was unable to pick up both generators from the dealer when we went there. But, we did get one, fortunately. I will have to wait to return and get the second one, after we finish our ongoing projects at the farm. Now that I have one of them, at least, and have had the opportunity to run it a few hours (funny how living in a Third World Country does that for you), I would like to offer my opinion of this machine. I love it! This little jewel runs my inverter refrigerator and the rest of my apartment in the city (granted not many electrical draws are happening during the day, typically), without coming much off idle. Unfortunately, my air-con is not an inverter. So, I know it would not run that, too. (Yes, I realize an inverter air-con will still draw considerably more power than my refrigerator.) Anyway, starting it up and connecting the apartment circuits to it, as I stated, does not make it scream. In fact, you can barely hear the thing running at all, if you are over a few meters from it. We are able to sit outside the apartment, while having a normal voice level chat. No irritating loud generator noise. So, in short, I am definitely sold on it. Before I would replace it with another genset I found while in Phnom Penh - a 15 kva Denyo diesel generator, I would have to seriously think about it. I love its quiet running. Afterthought: To show you the ignorance of some people, my landlord is a guy about 27 years of age and a Khmer. We had the generator running one morning, during a power cut. Anyway, he made it a point to tell the boss that it wasn't a good quality generator and would not last very long. I couldn't help but laugh when she told me what he said. (I wish I had $.05¢ US for every one of these sold for a year, throughout the World.) Many Khmers buy those cheap-arsed Chinese gensets which last maybe a year, vibrate like a one cylinder motorcycle, and are as loud as a screaming banshee. He's also one of these guys who is 27, yet has about 40 years experience at everything under the Sun. I can't wait to move to the farm.
