NFT: Portable electric generator recommendations please

Giantimistic : 3/7/2018 10:54 am
Has anyone had any good experiences with non-gas generators? Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

I need to be able to power one of those dancing inflatable tubes away from an electric outlet. I will be in parks with no power source. The dancing tube would be near where kids are and I would be transporting it to different sites. I did not know if one of the electric generators would actually be able to power one of these and for a long time.

For context, I am getting one of these to help bring attention to locations that my organization is providing free food to youth with food security issues especially in the summer.

I have one of my own small XP-10 micro start batteries I have used to start my car and those are amazing so I have to imagine there are high powered electric generators cable of much more.

Thank you for any help/suggestions.

but I'm sure you can rent one of these things. Not sure if you have considered that.
You donít want a generator

A ďnon-gas generatorĒ is not a thing. You want a battery powered inverter.

I have no product I can recommend, but I can give advice on some considerations. The first thing you need to do is determine how much power you need to store. How much does what youíre plugging in draw, and how long are you going to run it between charges.

Once you know the power you need, then find the product. I know there are larger versions of the car starter you have. Thatís one way to go. The other is to get a separate power inverter with no internal battery and connect 12V Deep Cycle batteries to it. I believe you can chain multiple batteries to it depending on your power storage need.

Good luck.

Thank you. This is very helpful. I have some money to spend but I don't have the money to buy the wrong thing!

We use Honda generators at work, and they are gas, do they make a one that runs off propane??

They make dual fuel retrofit kits for the Hondaís and others. I would guess a propane powered EU Honda would defnately power OPs dancing man for a long time. But it sounds like the big battery Jim described might be better. A dual fuel retrofit EU ainít cheap.
