    I bought one of these for my dad (K1EYB)'s 5th wheel camper to keep their
    12v system charged when they don't have full-hookup and don't want to run
    their pick-up's diesel engine to charge. The 110v side can handle
    300 Watts, continous. It has a switch which allows it to run in 150W
    mode, and a built-in circuit breaker with overload alarm. It is whisper
    quiet. It cost me $400 (5 years ago), and only weighs about 25-30 lbs.
    It's a really nice unit, IMHO. Very small and self-contained (can be
    carried in one hand). Honda has a full line of generators, but expensive
    per watt compared to the less compact units out there.
