Electric Generator Review and Buying Guide

My independent electric generator review & buying guide will help you choose the right electric generator for you. Whether you need one for your home, boat, RV, campsite, etc., I share my 20+ years of equipment experience to help you choose the right model  - at the right price.

At only 44 lbs, I highly recommend the well-designed Yamaha EF2000iS because it's perfect for computers, camping, boating or tailgating.
