Do any of you use them? If so, how do you like them?

I haven't heard of anyone doing so...

My guess is that you wouldn't have enough time to build up a charge that would last the night.

Only when he eats his own cooking... (ducking for cover mod!)

Actually, I would have it set up year round and it has a battery that stores the power continually.

Thinking it would save money over time - not having to buy gas - plus, it's quiet.

Now, that's funny right there!

Are you talking about at a comp? If so, I'm confused (I know, I should be used to it by now)...

I would use it for various things - powering my garage freezer, our snow cone stand - and in case of power outage, I would use it for my CPAP, fans, etc. (did you ever have your sleep study?)

If I ever get into competing, then I might use it in a comp. I figure a lot of the teams use different types of generators, so I thought I would ask this group...

No harm, no foul.... I was just wondering...
