Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost Perfect! I bought this when I spotted it on offer at my local store. I couldn't believe how light it was compared to my existing 800w generator. the fact that it was 4-stroke added to the appeal. I nearly didn't buy it after reading the spec in the catalogue, as it stated a run time of just 2hrs! Luckily, the website has the correct run time of 4hrs (under full load). I wanted it to run a fridge when camping, so after filling, I ran it connected to the fridge where it ran for around 10hrs! Overall, I'm very pleased with it, BUT there is a downside. Its not very quiet. Whilst not the loudest I've experienced in this output class, Its far louder than the 2-stroke model its replacing. I have a spare silencer that I should be able to add in series to the existing one so it shouldn't be a problem next time I go away. But if quietness is important, you might want to look elsewhere. As for reliability, I've only used it twice, so can't really comment. 7 Sep 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recommended. I needed a small, lightweight, efficient generator to power the caravan and this does the job. It's fairly quiet, can run all day on one tank of petrol. Keeps the kids' gadgets and the leisure battery charged. It needs a bit of setting up out of the box and you'll need to get suitable oil. The only downside is that it can be a real fiddle to get started sometimes, I've even resorted to finding a man around to pull the chord for me. It would also help if it had a blue caravan-style power connector as well as the 13a. 3 Sep 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Camper van back-up Bought this for my camper van to allow flexibility of staying on sites without hook-ups and for wild camping in Scotland. Only set it up and tested it so far but looks promising. It's neat, looks well made and not too noisy. 18 Aug 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Engineered to last I am a mobile caravan engineer and need something to power my van and to test caravan functions. The IM800i is just that product. The pure sine wave technology protects sensitive electronics such as my laptop and modern sophisticated caravan electrics. 700w probably isn't my best choice and will be upgrading very soon but the IM800i will be replaced by another Impax inverter generator. It does exactly what it says it does and the 12v battery charging is a blessing at times, saving me a wait for the AA after my van battery died. 19 Jul 2016

I'm interested to know how long this unit will run for under a very small load, say 40W.

Is any stats on how long it would run for sat idle for example?

Answer: 
Sorry but we do not have testing data for this however calculations suggest this runtime under the load you suggest would be >10hrs. Although this cannot be guaranteed as its an estimation based on current data.

Please check the input power requirements of the chop saw - if less than ≤780w then it will be OK!
