I bought my honda EU20i about 12mnths ago from Grahams. Ordered it online and it arrived on freight. Was the cheapest by far. Not sure where they were and seems there website is down at the moment. It was a great investment - although expensive.

I bought mine EU10i from Grahams also. Over the Net at www.grahams.com.au. Arrived 2-3 days later. Was the best price that I was able to track down. I think they are down Queanbeyan way. One of my best investments.

EU20i $1760 after Honda $200 cashback offer. I think all dealers are arounnd this price. I got mine two weeks ago in Perth. Don't go ror the EU10i as it is a bit light for most folks use.

Hi Stephen,
When I bought my EU10 I spoke to an outfit in Drummoyne, can't for the life of me remember the name of them but the price was chit hot.
I then rang the local Newcastle agent, he asked me did I have any other prices. Said yes and told him. He spat, he snarled he bit and gnashed then said holy chit I can barely buy it for that! His next words were, I'll match it. Cash only.
Soo, I paid cash locally. Saved the fuel to Sydney and been happy with my purchase.
Actually I've not long ago bought another EU10, this time secondhand and ordered a paralleling cable to give me a shade more power than an EU20.
I don't think you'll be disappointed.

So if you can find some mob in Drummoyne who's ready to deal give em a call and then ring one close to home.

Geoff.

Well I didn't think the name was that flash, a little common really.
Now I've played around a little,
I'm sure it was Kennys but if Birkenhead Batteries & Solar & Power & Deals can do better, hey, even better.
Go for it, from personal experience the Honda won't disappoint.

Hi Stephen,

If you are not in a hurry, you should try the National 4 x 4 show at Olympic park 23 – 25 June.

You might pick up a show special, they usually don’t lower the price too much but they do offer extras such as additional warranties etc.

Regards,

Matt

Hi

When you buy a generator, use it with consideration, they cause a lot of fights in a camp area.

Hi there meandet, we usually only camp in private areas, have never camped in a caravan park, if I'm there first then I will set up and run the gennie just to recharge batteries and the like and we usually run it at night while cooking to run the fluro light, other than that we dont use it any other time unless it's absolutely needed, eg 40c day and the fridge is working ot then I will run the fridge off it as well to save the car battery for at night. I always think of others when we are camping but its usually some one that gets there after me that wants to set up camp on top of you,dont get me wrong I like to meet as many people as possible when we are out and about and usually enjoy other peoples company, but if they set up camp on top of me then start to make the noise then they cop it, but I get your point, some people have no consideration for other people.

Stephen,
I've put a lot of effort lately into real world measurement of discharging batteries via fridges in particular and lights etc, as an aside. I've also carried it over into charging via vehicle alternators and charging via generator supplied 240 Volt battery chargers.
What have I learned?
To be honest if you want to create the lowest amount of noise for the shortest period of time get yourself a really good quiet generator and the biggest 3 or 4 stage battery charger you can afford!
Why? Quite simple really, the 3 or 4 stage charger at say 30 Amps is as good as about a 120 Amp vehicle alternator. Big statement that one!! How do I back it? The specialised charger is actually that, specialised, it’s designed to optimise battery charging whereas the alternator is designed to replace the short burst of starting current.
What happens with a really good smart charger is exactly that, smarts. It puts back exactly what the battery needs at the rate the battery can handle. It's optimised to battery charging.
Whereas the vehicle alternator just follows a generic vehicle manufacturer’s generic idea of what a generic battery requires achieving something approximating a charge.

So if people actually knew what was going on they’d accept solar first, generators as the best of the rest and look down on vehicle engines as a true pain in the posterior.
