Has anyone had experience with either the Christie Engineering or LightHorse mini generators?

ROHAN.. I HAVE JUST PURCHASED (3 MONTHS AGO) A CHRISTIE "GEN " SET. I BROUGHT THE LARGER SET THAT GIVES 120amp AND TO DATE I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH IT. I CHOSE THE LARGER SET OBVIOUSLY BECAUSE OF THE OUTPUT BUT ALSO BECAUSE IT IS CONDSIDERABLY QUITER THAN THE SMALLER SET (50amp I THINK) . THEY COST $1234.00 FROM SPRINGERS IN BRISBANE( 0438 789 113). THEY WEIGH 18KG AND ARE FAIRLY SMALL( I KEEP MINE IN A WHITE PLASTIC BOX WHEN TRAVELLING) ( 512X304X402). MOTOR IS A HONDA GX100 AND RUNS FOR I.25 HRS ON 1.2 LITRES. I RUN TWO 100amp DEEP CYCLE BATTERIES FOR FRIDGE/ FREEZER AND EVERY THIRD DAY CHARGE THEM FOR 1 TANK OF FUEL: RESULT FULLY CHARGED. HOPE THIS HELPS. REMEMBER THEY ARE ONLY 12v THOUGH.

Rohan, There's been heaps of comments on the Christie, on this forum over the past few months, lot less on the Lighthorse. If Ozi was here, he would put you right, on the efficient way to charge deep cycle batteries. Hooroo...

Thanks. Did a search and read the comments. For me (and I'm sure for any camping neighbors) silence is golden so I think that excludes the current model Christie. I'll look at solar again.
