They won't ship to AK, unfortunately for me. But the Camels say this is the lowest price ever. 1500 running Watts.

Seems like the average price is 160-180 according to the camels. Slickdeals won't let me post a link for whatever reason.
Neither Amazon nor Walmart will Ship to Alaska.

The only way this one might not be considered "portable" is because it doesn't have wheels..

This is a generator. Generators [wikipedia.org] create electricity from other forms of energy input (in this case burning gasoline in a combustion engine).

Inverters [wikipedia.org] simply change the type of electricity from AC to DC or vice versa. This generator has an inverter onboard since it offers both 12v DC and 120v AC.

Close but not quite. Inverters are not used to convert AC power to DC, they're specifically for creating an approximation of sine wave AC power from a DC power source. Very few generators would include an inverter, typically they generate AC power directly and then use an internal SMPS (aka wall wart) to power the 12V outlet.

What do you mean by portable version? This one weighs 50#. Or are you looking for an inverter?

yes that's what I meant. What's the difference between an generator and inverter?

Inverters provide a constant clean sine wave, generators have fluctuations. The term dirty power is used sometimes to describe whether or not the sine wave is pure. Electronics and compressors need pure sine power to lower risk of damage.

I was wondering about this being safe to use for electronics (laptop computer, Dj equipment). I've seen a few Djs use these types live and the generators were loud...like having a lawn mower constantly running during their gig. I was thinking about grabbing this on the cheap, primarily because I don't anticipate using this much. I won't feel so bad spending $120 vs $700 or so...unless it blows up my laptop. That being said, is there a "safe" way to use this with electronics?

Nice deal. Change the plug to a NGK and toss the chinaplug.

Plug an APC surge protector strip into it.

That's a sweet deal. I already have one so I don't need it.
