Honda portable generators are machines that convert mechanical energy into electricity. It consists of a small gasoline powered engine and alternator mounted together to form a generator.
Portable generators create electrical power by running a gasoline powered engine. The engine, with all of its moving parts that converts power into motion, turns an on-board alternator to generate electricity. Read on to learn more about this year’s 2020 Honda portable generators.
What makes a Honda generator portable?
Portable is defined as easily moved or carried, generally because of it being a smaller or lighter version than usual, such as a lightweight television or compact computer. It is a small transportable generator that can be easily transferred from place to place.
But don’t equate the word “portable” with small and compact. A Honda portable generator can be large and heavy. As long as the generator is easily movable, regardless of its size, it is termed portable. Some portable generators weigh more than 200 pounds.
Large portable generators are not space-saving and can be difficult to travel with unless you own a pickup truck, but they are often mobile as they are fitted with never-go-flat wheels and steering handles.
Lightweight, compact Honda generators
Lightweight portable Honda generators are built with material weighing less than average, smaller engine and alternator, lighter steel construction and fewer circuits.
Lightweight portable generators are usually compact, meaning its parts are closely and neatly packed to together so as to occupy little space, which enables the available space to be used economically.
Lightweight, compact portable generators are perfect for travel and convenient for storage. They are light enough to be moved from place to place by a small-frame person or someone with disabilities.
Most important, they are mobile, small enough to be accommodated in a compact car so as to travel around and serve various places where power is down or not available at all.
It boils down to how many things can you run on a Honda portable generator? Most homes or trailers need about 3,000 to 6,500 watts to power household appliances. A typical refrigerator requires 400-800 watts, furnace blower 400-600 watts.
If you’re looking to power your central air conditioner, you’ll need about 2,000 to 5,000 watts, whereas an electric fan only needs 75 to 300 watts. Electric stoves need a lot of electricity, about 3,000-4,000 watts.
