Regardless of where you go, be it camping, tailgating or wherever you need power the Honeywell HW1000i is the source for all you recreational needs.

How many watts?

One of the most important things to look for in a generator is the number of watts it can produce on a continuous basis. This is considered its running or rated wattage. You will also want to look at how much power the generator can produce for a short period of time to start motors or larger appliances like air conditioners. This is considered its maximum or surge wattage. The Honeywell HW1000i is capable of producing 900 watts of continuous power and 1000 watts maximum surge power. Being an inverter generator it produces clean, safe, and reliable power for highly sensitive electronics such as laptops and plasma televisions.

How long will it run?

Another important factor to consider when looking for a generator is how long it will run on a full tank of fuel. The Honeywell HW1000i portable inverter generator is able to run for 5 hours at a 50 percent load from a full tank (.7 gallons) of unleaded gas. This is possible thanks to an economy mode option on the generator. The economy mode decreases the speed of the 53cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled Honeywell OHV engine, saving fuel and reducing running noise. When the oil level is too low the Honeywell HW1000i will automatically shut down, ensuring that the motor is not ruined.  AC and DC overload protection is also included on the generator.  If the unit is overloaded with current a circuit breaker will trip.  The Honeywell HW1000i is also CSA-listed, CARB- and 50-State-compliant which means lower emissions.

How loud is it? How portable is it?

The Honeywell HW1000i portable inverter generator is great for camping use. Weighing just 30 pounds and having an integrated handles makes the Honeywell HW1000i easy to move and store.  The generator is also easy to use and has Smart Start instructions to help with fast starts.  Not only is it portable but it is relatively quiet with a sound rating of 60 dB without a load. Remember that if you plan on camping at a National Park the requirements for sounds levels are no higher than 60 decibels at a distance of 50 feet.

Does it have a warranty?

Yes. The Honeywell HW1000i is very durable and includes a 2 year limited warranty.
