I know this isn't the best of a deal but down here in Texas a lot of people were wanting something small to power basic items. This was the cheapest I could find at $199 this was fp at $150 but just posting this for some people who want to get prepared and find a good cheap inverter generator.

volts x amps = watts
So, 115 x 1.7= 195.5 watts

I have one. Its a 4 stroke motor. Pretty quiet. Word of caution for long term durability with all of these Chinese engines. Change the oil several times in the first hr of operation. When you see what comes out then youll know why.
I have this generator and happen to live in Texas where we lost power for about 5 days. This will charge stuff fine and run most small electronics. It however did not run our normal side-by-side fridge at all and seemed to struggle with even a 600w coil style heater. To be fair the heater ran but the generator was running very high and blowing white smoke the 2 min it was on. It may run a radiator-style heater or a deep freeze, but the surge of the compressors on the fridge kept overloading it. It did work however with no issues and ran for about 5 hrs on less than half a gallon of gas. Not bad at all, just understand its limitations.
Good, it'll actually run then.

Got excited thinking it was a 2000 watt generator but this is still a great price for 1,000 watts, perfect for lights, charging devices, medical devices, fridge, maybe even a smaller microwave or personal heater/ac.

Repped. I've had this for about a year now and am very impressed with the price/performance. Runs quiet, easy to start.

Yes it will. That freezer is rated at 1.7A 115V which is roughly 200 Watts.

Check me, but Watts = Volts * Amps. Surge watts can be estimated at about 2 times running watts. The freezer is 115v * 1.7amp = 195.5 running watts. Surge watts would be close to 400. Should be more than enough to power it.

I have this little generator. It works good. Only thing that would have made it better for the price is parallel hookups.

I was just about to post this. Great advice. Should be highlighted in red with flashing font to alert anyone considering buying it.

Personally, I have not had luck with traditional Sportsman generators. Maybe this inverter type is better.
