If you’re one of these people who thinks the world is ending if your phone dies or the iPad isn’t working, then perhaps you should think about packing a generator for your next camping trip, because chances are you’ll be relying on a battery system at some point to provide power for your appliances.

A generator is a convenient source of power when camping as you can run all your appliances directly, and it comes in especially handy if you want to run items that typically draw a bit more power such as kettles, washing machines, air-conditioners, blow dryers, microwaves, etc

At Sunshine Coast Mowers, we recommend the Honda EU20i Generator if you’re looking for a go-to portable inverter generator.

The Honda EU20i is number one on the Australian market for portable invertor generators, and for good reason too.

This generator is light, durable and very user-friendly. It also runs very quietly thanks to its superior industrial design, backed by an extensive manufacturer’s warranty.

Whether you need one for camping, excursions or simply as an additional backup for an unexpected household power outage, then this is definitely the portable generator we, at Sunshine Coast Mowers, would recommend.

The EU20i features a microcomputer-controlled sinewave inverter that guarantees commercial quality electricity – making it ideal for use with frequency-sensitive electrical equipment such as laptops.

The EU20i also features an Eco-throttle, which adjusts the engine speed to meet the load demand. This increases fuel economy whilst also reducing noise, as the engine doesn't have to work as hard.

  • Always check with the parks you plan to stay if generators are permitted.

  • And make sure you have adequate security for it.
  • Assess how many appliances will draw power from the generator in order to avoid load on the generator.
