Older Honda Generator EX650 - What can't they be used on?
Submitted: Tuesday, Nov 24, 2009 at 23:25
I've got an older 4 stroke Honda EX650 generator and am wondering what equipment it can't be used on?
So far I have just used it for lighting and power tools.
I understand that the newer type of generators (Inverter or sine wave?) can be used on Laptops, TVs, Microwaves, Engels and pretty much all electronics; but am not sure what the older type could be used on without eventually wrecking the equipment?

talk to your local honda dealer and get the specs for it. That will tell you what the output is and what you can run on it.

I use mine to run my 25 amp ctek to charge batteries, and it will run all those other things up to about 450 - 500 w.
I run most things like that on my 300w or 1000w inverter, mostly for convenience so that i only need to run gen when batteries get down.
It is a very stable power supply.

I have a GX500 that I use as a back up for my solar setup. It runs my ctek 25000 battery charger. It will run my Evakool or engel and also my laptop and any battery charger I have.
This may or may not work for you but it does for me.

That model is rated to run anything at all (within its power rating)
Can be used to charge batteries as well , but not reccomended for long term use here as CTEK and other converters do a better and more efficent job.
