    So how was the Black Crown Will. I'm going to stick with it. Darn good beer. Thanks to lifting many pellet bags I can still carry a case of beer so liquor store here I come. Black Crown it is then to HD for 15 bags of Stove Chow at $3.92 a bag.

    I liked it, a change from my normal swill and at 6% alcohol a bit more of a kick;) Nice price on the Chow.

    This got to 2 pages without the champion being mentioned? ?????

    Nice buy. Can't go wrong with the honda invertor.
    now, get a 2nd one and the bridge kit and a tranfer switch and a roof/house to kepe them in the elements away from your house so you don't die of CO. :)

    Honda makes 2 EU 2kw units, one stand alone EU 2000i and one you can use the parallel kit on with 30amp outlet, EU2000i Companion.

    You mean "companion" as in Honda EU generators or "Champion" generators ??

    Built a little house for it. I hooked her up and just the one will do everything I want it to do.

    I have 2 of these with a joiner kit .Had them 9yrs now hard to believe they still make the same model. A word of caution you can damage things running eco throttle ,like air cond. ,fridge ,freezer, micro .Things that draw a lot on start up .Ran mine 20 hrs a day for 6 days straight. If you run them hard they get 4hrs per gal.not bad !

    No reason to mention the champion. It is a different machine for a different market, I have one, and would love a honda eu2000i for the smaller loads. 220v vs. 110v is an issue.

    It's even red. There used to be another competitor named Kipor?

    Where do you live that you have those voltages? AFAIK the US is standardized at 240v and 120v.

    Still around I think. My favorite OPE dealer dabbles with them.

    I'd love if my utility could actually deliver 120.... We get 115v on a good day, during AC season more like 110.

    I'm usually sitting around 245-248v, so about 122-124v. (Only reason I know this is my solar panel invertors track it and I see it in the reports)

    Seems to me we're usually 117vac here ( battery is dead in my meter and can't find a 9 volt battery) but I have measured 108/109 in the Summer around supper time but it has been back up in the morning.

    I have the Champion 2000w-120vac inverter generator, also works great and has an economy setting for the engine like the Honda. Maybe someone knows for sure, but I'm guessing that the electronic inverter steps up/down the DC voltage as needed to meet the demand, but if the DC voltage is too low to allow this, then the engine speed is increased (or decreased as demand falls) to increase the DC voltage so that the inverter can do its job.Thus, the engine speed may remain low on economy because the electronics can handle the load variations. I know on mine that if the demand increases substantially, the engine speed will pick up.
