Impax IM800I 700W Inverter Generator 230V
Can't charge, cuts out
First thing, the 12v charger won't charge any battery over 80 amp - the generator will cut the 12v supply when it figures out what amp your battery is.
I have had it only a few weeks, run it a few times each week but it cuts out after a hour or 2 then on restart it will run for a few minutes if lucky. Oil is fine no over load (only running LED lights and laptop).
Can't find any information as to why this is so will be returning it for a exchange, wishing the next one better luck.

great little generator!
Purchased for caravan and boat. Easy start, very light even when full, and seems quieter than the labeled 93 db. Although i've given 5 star reliability, i haven't had it long enough to rate this properly, I'll review in a few months. Aprat from that this really is a great little generator.

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!
