So within a week after getting my cord, we had a three day power outage. I hooked it up to my 4000 watt generator and it performed perfect. Nice and heavy duty well made, and the yellow cord is great at night, so you don't trip over

I purchased this cable to connect a portable generator to a power inlet. When making the connections at each end, I noticed the molded ends are so small I can't get a firm grip to insert or extract from the

This is a nice, and sturdy cable, and I'm sure it will work for my intended purpose.

The cord will connect an emergency generator to my house. Unfortunately, neither end of the cord matched the house connector, or the generator outlet. The locking pins were the opposite of what was required. I had checked this closely before I

I ordered this power station knowing it probably wouldn’t get to me until after Hurricane Florence had hit. This seller knew that too, so they took it upon themselves to send me a really nice, large battery pack charger at no cost to make sure I would have something before the storm to get me through. Who does that?

This product works well, but there is a challenge for CPAP users that needs to be considered. The "passthrough" power on the 110v outlet is not actually passthrough. What this means is that the 3-hr cutoff time affects this outlet, as well, so if you intend to use this device as a UPS during storms while you sleep, you'll need to

Finally got my hands on this beautiful and clean piece of electrical storage goodness and was pumped to try it out. I already own an Explorer 160 and needed something with a little more juice and the 240 is the perfect upgrade.

works great. See photos for install. you will need a hole saw bit or spade bit to drill through siding and band joist or side sheeting to run waterproof conduit. My only complaint is that I wish the supplied ground that connects to the box from the outlet was solid 10 gauge copper instead of stranded... when connecting the 10-3 Romex

Like other reviews, this is a great quality box, the manufacturer recommends using minimum 10 gauge / max 8 gauge wire, we installed the box with 8 gauge wire without problem, easy to install, but hire a Certified electrician to do this job, this box must be used with a combination of a transfer switch or Interlock, I decided to use an

Purchased for my generator hook up at main panel. The build quality is good. My only comment is the same as some of the other reviews. The removable cover that contains the plug in socket has an rear lip that must fit over the stationary cover that gets screwed in place. If you attach the base to a flat surface, you will not be able

We just received the Jackery Explorer 500 Power Station. It’s a much bigger unit than the Honda 290 Power station that we already have. It's still lightweight, but it's much heftier than the 290. The new one is going to be a holiday gift for my parents, since they don’t have a generator (we do). Power outages are a part of life in the

The Jackery Explorer 500 is a solid, well designed product. The unit is rugged and compact with nothing on the exterior to break off or catch on nearby objects. The display shows charge level, charging wattage, and use wattage, all very handy. The pure sine wave inverter provides a clean AC supply at 110V, 60 hz. The unit charges in 8

I live in Florida and this is a must have for power outages, camping, and hurricane preparation. It’s so much easier than a traditional generator. It’s also a much cleaner solution and easier to have available when needed. The display screen is very helpful as far as knowing whether or not it’s fully charged. It has ample outlets

Not a lot one can say about a cover. It covers the generator and prevents it getting covered in snowier rain the only negative i have found is that when it rains water collects in the dips and valleys that form on the top of the cover, then if it freezes you have to remove a substantial block of ice before you can remove the cover.

I cannot say enough good things about this product and this company. I purchased this transfer switch in July of 2014 to go along with my new Westinghouse WH6500E portable generator.

I purchased this at my local small equipment dealer, but thought I would share the differences between the EU2000i and the EU2200i, for those deciding between this model and the EU2000i which is on clearance where still available.

Awesome generator! I bought it as insurance for the next major storm! Easy to start and really quiet. It does not come with oil, so make sure you have some. Takes about a half quart.

This is the brand new model from Honda replacing the very popular eu 2000. So far the only noticible upgrades I’m seeing are an additional 200 watts of power and a loooong overdue fuel cutoff switch. Other than those two upgrades it seems very similar to the reliable and trusted eu 2000. Since I can’t offer much of a review, I’ll

It comes with the carrying bag and has two 110v outlets. I even tried plugging in the blender that is 450W and it still worked.

I was in the market for more substantial backup power at home, but without the necessity of a fueled backup generator. When planning for power outages, I was looking for backup power to basically handle a 4-6 hour outage. Not long enough to worry about food going bad in the refrigerator, but yet if I needed to plug something in I could.
