Hi folks,
quick question for some of you guru's out there. I have an engel 1 kva generator which is a digital sine wave output. Does this mean i can run sensitive equipment like laptop's or audio equipment or could it zap them?
Also, i am after a 2 kva generator and i happen to know someone who works at Bayswater Anaconda and can get some good deals. Anaconda stock the engel and kipor genset- would i be best to go for the engel/honda unit or Kipor? (bearing in mind the kipor has a few extra features)

I've run all my stuff you mentioned apart my laptop on the Engel as I've heard that the digi wave may overheat laptop batteries, but I've been unable to verify this on the web.

I personally will not buy another Engel (mine is the shx2000). As to why, google or use the search function for my "Engel shx2000 generator horror story" on this forum using the words as quoted in brackets. My generator still squeals.

I would recommend anyone to bypass Engel, starve, if short of money, or live on canned pea and ham soup or even fight for scraps with domestic animals under bridges, until your Honda money is saved up.

I thought the Engel wasn't a sine wave unit and therefore unsuitable for electronic gear ? Can anyone confirm ?
