      I bought this a few years ago for the hurricanes and storms we see in Virginia. We have a ~1550 square foot home with 2 of us under roof, and this powers everything we need when we are out of power for short or long stints. We do have gas appliances, but primary heat is electric heat pump. It's loud. You will want to place it away from your living/sleeping area. I bought it with the extended warranty, and will need to use it one day. The choke cable keeps pushing the choke back out when running (vibrating), so I have to tape it down with Gorilla tape, but the unit functions fine and I hate the thought of not having it here at the house (while in for repair). The battery stays charged, but I do plug in the charger for a few days every few months. I start it about once every 4 months, and usually keep it full of stabilized fuel, changing/draining fuel completely at least every 18-24 months. It always starts right up; just make sure you use the choke and make sure you use the pull start on test runs as well as the electrics start. Picture of the unit is in the garage, on standby. The box on the wall is the interface to the electrical system of the house. We reconfigured the cable it came with to be male-male, and the chain is for securing the unit for extended outdoor use. Very please with the unit.

      Pros Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, value
