    Reliable but Expensive!

    published

    My EU10i is around 10 years old and gets used maybe a few times a year for camping and blackouts.
    It's reliable, relatively quiet (although the Yamaha EF1000is is noticeably quieter) and withstands short duration overloads quite well when fridges and motors start.
    When running at low loads of less than a couple of hundred Watts, it will run for around 8 hours & 20 mins on 2.1lt of fuel.

    Things I don't like about it: There is no separate fuel tap to run the carby out. Checking the oil level could be made easier so you don't need a tool to open the side panel. They are expensive to buy and service in Australia compared with overseas counterparts, even after factoring in exchange rate and freight.

    Reliable to start every time but in hotter climates does not produce full1kva output.when were in the top end of Qeensland Australia is when it did not have full output. When we were in NSFW northern rivers area we had no power loss and the same when we were in Robe area of SA

    Quiet and lightweight

    published

    We've gone through a 4 days power outage during the stormy season early 2013, and decided to get a quiet generator as backup. Quietness is the main priority as we live in a suburban area. The unit really surprise me with the its noise level as it is very acceptable with the ECO mode on.
    The Honda EU10i managed to power my 400litre Fisher Paykel fridge, and 40 inch LCD TV with ease. I were a bit worry that it will struggle to power my fridge due to the starting power requirement of the fridge compressor (3 to 4 times the listed power), but it does it with ease.
    Quietness, lightweight

    I found the 1 kva was all that i required to run the van battery charge the main fridge as well as the waco in the 4x4 it also ran the lights in the van as they are all led and very low wattage,
    my stove is all gas and the microwave is not required on overnight roadside stops. the hot water well the kettle will do, the job in a non park situation for the extra money for Honda its well worth it.
    Weight, starts first pull, so quiet.

    I followed the instructions with my new EU 10i generator . Filled it with correct oil and ran it for 10 hours then ran it for 10 mins to get hot and drained then refilled . I am concerned now because the first 10 hours i ran with about 60% load and never con cidered running it in but read somewhere that these engines have to be run in without any load for a while or the life of the engine will be severely compromised . Feeling a bit disappointed now as there's nothing mentioned in the Manual about this. Please advise?

    Details

    Features

    • This Honda inverter generator is built with 12V DC port, and one 240V AC power port. It has a max power output of 1 kVA, and a rated power output of 0.9 kVA.
    • The sinewave inverter makes the Honda EU10i safe to use with electronics that are frequency sensitive, like mobile phones and laptops.
    • A 240V rated voltage is equipped with AC circuit protection and a DC circuit breaker, which help to protect against voltage spikes and power overloads respectively.
    • This generator has a 2.1-litre Unleaded 91 fuel tank capacity, and can operate for 3.2 hours continuously.
    • A weight of 13kg is extremely light compared to other portable inverter generators.
    • Operates at a quiet volume of 52dB(A)-59dB(A), which is similar to other small portable inverter generators. It’s around the same volume as the hum of conversation in a quiet restaurant.

    Points to consider

    A max output rating of 1kVA is quite low compared to other highly-rated portable inverter generators designed for the same purposes as this one.

    While this generator’s output can be increased to 2kVA using a parallel connection cable, you’ll have to buy another EU10i generator to do this - doubling the price and weight, towing two generators around.

    Depending on what you're using the generator for, you might find the continuous running time of 3.2 hours before you need to re-fuel too little time.
