I just finished a full assault on my Visa by buying this: A Yamaha EF6300iSDE inverter (pure sine wave) generator. Not as quiet as the one above, but it's over double the output.

That's my project this weekend.

Mine is still only 64db at full load. It's got a muffler that looks like it was taken off a compact car!

I know Harman sells that battery back up but it seems to be a better alternative would be a small Honda generator with the inverter. I know it would not be wise to plug into a regular generator but the Hondas look interesting. The smaller units run for like 20 hours on less than 5 gal gas.
