Can you school me (us) on why sealed lead acid batteries are no good? Figured for just under $350 for a "low-output" generator + solar panels, this would be a good quick solution for back-up for small appliances/phones/radio etc. during power outages/emergencies. Especially since it is portable and can be used inside...

I'll try. This thing weights 107 pounds. Lead acid batteries are real heavy. You risk the lifespan of the battery if you discharge greater than 50%. Which is bad because in an emergency you would definitely want to go past 50%. With lithium batteries, you can safely go to below 80-90%.

Another huge ne3gative is it takes 60 hours to fully charge this unit via solar. With a lithium based system, you could probably do it in half a day or less, depending on the charge controller you have.

The new ECORiVER with a larger battery can fully charge via solar in about 4 hours!

Lithium in the wrong run saves you money is more efficient and all-around user friendly.

I pass on all lead acid solar generator deals!

You're right except with this deal the pricepoint is by far better than anything you'll touch with llithium, even factoring overall life of each. Even if this dies in 4 years from digging too deep in power usage you've gotten your money's worth, $270?! Great deal, thanks for posting.

Lithium does not work below 36 degree, lead acid still works fine even 0 degree.
For 299, it's no brainer, buying all the parts costs more than 300 dollar, and this one even come with a nice case and wheeler
Too bad I missed the deal, but will wait for it come back next year.
