This looks to be identical to the WEN 56200i which is only $479 at Amazon and has dipped below $400 according to ccc.

Someone will need to confirm - but aren't these made by someone else and they just pay to use the snap-on name? i remember reading that somewhere...

Seems like a good option for us electric car drivers. Emergency range extender. Only 4mph...miles per hour of charge. But better than nothing.

Ha, glad it has clean power for your 5V device. Wonder what efficiency it runs at to charge your phone. Should have purchased a $5 battery pack from Best Buy.

Still would be tempted, but just bought a loud 4800w unit for $325 for emergencies. Tried using it to charge my car (to break it in), but my L1 charger didn't like the electricity quality.

You may need to put a large resistor across ground and n to get by the ground fault detection.

The similar model is 51 db. So I'd assume it's "quiet" as well.

My other ones are around 20db louder...or a LOT.

I have the honda 2000s got Used off of craiglist for 800 each. A little more, but well worth it imo. SO Quiet and reliable! Ive been lucky enough to buy from RV owners that will sell them after 1-2 uses for half price.

any idea if these 51db ratings for generators are at full power, or at eco? I assume theyre typically at eco in order to get the lowest noise possible

It says in the description that this an officially licensed product, meaning someone, Alltrade in this case, bought the right to slap the Snap-on logo onto other products. The catalog doesn't include this particular item yet, but it ominously states on the cover that Snap-on makes no representations or warranties with respect to licensed products.

Alltrade: http://www.alltradetools.com/

Catalog: http://bluetoad.com/publication/?i=180386&pre=1

So this generator is no better than other similar generators from the same factory with different names slapped on them. But you might get some bragging rights by owning a "Snap-on" with those who do no know any better.
