have you looked at solar generators? some are designed specially for CPAP .... lower wattage and more cost upfront if you want a solar charging panel, but less risks (in theory), running wires, (open window, tripping over wires) carbon monoxide, changing tanks etc...

I've looked into the Jackery is that what you were talking about? When researching it seemed like a generator like this one might be better and last longer especially
Since hurricanes come maybe once a year. What do you think? Thanks.

Propane for the longevity and length of use. Jackery like ones for ease of use.

If you aren't or can't charge using a solar panel during the day then propane as well. The good thing with hurricanes is once they pass it usually is sunny for several days.

I really like the idea of these. I just wish they would come out with a 2000w. Even if the running time was shortened.

You realize you'd need a pretty big solar panel, charging all day, with no electric use during that time to get something roughly equivalent to this generator topped off? I've attached a pic of the 200W Yeti panel and the charge times they list for it.

Yeti is expensive stuff, but even going with cheaper alternatives, you're easily looking at spending hundreds more than the cost of this generator. For someone that's regularly camping, it might make sense. But for emergencies? not so much.

As for the CPAP, this plus a battery backup would work well.

I ordered one of these two days ago (the 2nd) for this price.

I had been waiting for the Ryobi 900 to go on sale for half of last year and they discontinued it before it went on sale again. I was expecting it to drop to 249, so 229 on this Baja is even better.

Reviews are decent. It is very low output, so limited use. Prob good for light car camping or tailgating. Not for running major stuff during a power outage (like AC or fridge). Reviews indicate that some of them do not include enough oil and may need a couple more ounces of oil to avoid low oil shutdown. Which would cause them to shutoff and appear to be defective.

I got the ryobi version for 199 and it is a nice little, very light unit. It can run my fridge, but mostly better for light duty and tailgating. Extremely quiet and portable. Att 229 on this unit, still a good deal.

Here was my 199 price,

Way more cost up front. Using the Jackery as an example, to run a CPAP you would need (based on their own suggestion) the 500w model, plus the 100W panel. With that, you are looking at a 12 hour recharge time. That's $800 ($500 for the inverter, $200 for the panel).

Don't get me wrong, they are an awesome option if you can afford it, but that's a pretty big difference in price, almost 3.5x the cost of this generator. Even with two 20lb tanks (this one includes the adapter for using 20lb tanks) that's still over 2x as much.

From the spec's: "Run time at 50% load (hours/tank or charge): 0"

Not very impressive! Big Grin

I'd buy this if the CONTINUOUS output was 900W and, say, 1100W instantaneous/surge, to use with my corded pole saw and other equipment in the 7-8A range. That might still be on the edge of what this thing can handle continuously, but it would be worth trying at this price.
