Getting Ready

We lost power 2x in the last year here in Castle Rock Washington.
We got fed up and also got worried that it was a matter of time before the lights could be out for more then three hours.

So. we got this Chinese Made 1,200 Watt unit made by" All Power"

Now shen you get one of these units you need to know that there are 2 types of Generators. there are the inverter unots and then there are the non inverter units aka less crap to go wrong with.

And then you have the brush and then you have the brushless styles aswell.

You probably have heard and Googled " All Power" by now and say. oh rhat is the company who has the gens that are out putting 36 volts from the twelv volt side.

Whil this is true you can adjust the idler arm to lower the engines RPMs and fine tune it to meet your needs.

You will notice the imverter I have.
this is for the more sensitive devices like Charng laptop and cell phones. While using the generator's main out to power a 750 watt fridge (6.4 amps) or a 900 watt steamer.(sepperately) its.rated at 1000 watts continous, meaning you will be suckin gas running such things.

The main reason for sharing this is to touch on how affordable thinfs are getting. People even on low income can have power.

It just shows how addicted you are to electricity. You can't live without it for 24 hours? And I'll bet you'd want a refund on the electricity you *didn't* use...

I'd suggest you build a "Baffle" for the gen. If others hear it, they'll want you to let them have some...or they'll kill you for it.

You want to share on how affordable things are getting, yet you don't share the price... How much did it cost you and how much are you saving compared to similar makes and models not made in China?
