Impax IM800I 700W Inverter Generator 230V
Excellent value and quality
Bought this as a back up power source for my camper van, It is very easy to start and runs so quiet you can forget it's there, Nice compact light and easy to move around.
It has no trouble running a 500w heater all my lights and water pump at same time, It does struggle with the 800w microwave but there is a bigger model available that would run that.
Love the 12v battery charger that is built in, gives me peace of mind that I can get my van started in remote areas if battery goes flat.
Running at max load I get around 4 hours on a tank of fuel.

Light, compact generator
Started 2nd pull straight out of the box! The instructions are supplemented by lots of helpful labels on the generator case. Useful priming pump to fill carburettor before starting, don't forget to open vent on fuel cap when running, and close when transporting!
It's noisier than the market leader and sounds quite enthusiastic when running.
If it doesn't start within a couple of pulls I've probably forgotten to check something!
I.e.fuel tap on, economy switch off, run switch on, choke on, fuel vent on cap open!
This sounds silly, but I think it looks really cute!

Great little gennie
I run a battery and inverter system from the van and needed a pure sine wave generator to run the charger to top up the batteries when on site for more than one day. Started first time and still had half a tank of fuel after 2 hours running. Can pick it up with 2 fingers even when fueled up. Only used it for 2 days so far so cannot comment on reliability but looks reasonably well made so not expecting any problems with it.

Decent output for use on our allotment with all tools bar the lawn mower. Also use it with our motorhome, charges the habitation battery and powers small mains devices when there's no hook up. Great value.
