Hey there all :)

Has anyone ever used a small AC power conditioner to remove (or at least smooth) spikes and any other nasties coming from the cheap generators out there for sale?

There are pretty cheap (at least in th USA), so I don't see why one of these wouldn't potentially save the day and protect your laptop power supplies, etc from rough -ish AC power.

There is a small one (4 plug) that cleans noise and provides surge protection as well for around US$70.00

Any good you reckon?

Hi,
Don't worry about it. There would not normally be any spikes present. The only issue would be regulation and provided it does not go much over 250V, there should be no problem. All the ones I have seen are actually closer to 220V than 240 anyway.
Laptop power supplies are generally very tolerant of voltage fluctuations and usually have a spike filter on the input.
Cheers
