Honda Generating your festive spirit
05 Dec 2007
Whether it's lighting the fairy lamps, cooking the turkey or listening to the Queen's Speech on television, electricity is the all-important power behind a glittering and entertaining Christmas. Consequently there are few seasons in the year when a Honda generator is a more essential accessory both as a mobile power pack and as emergency back up in case of any hugely disruptive black outs.
Honda's award-winning EU generator range provides the very best in portable power. Using sophisticated inverter technology – unique to Honda – these environmentally focused generators deliver pure, stable energy that's even cleaner than electricity from the National Grid. Moreover, the power produced is free of surges or spikes that can damage or crash computers and cause flickering on the latest flat screen TVs and lights.
Weighing in at just 13kg, the EU10i and the larger EU20i are both designed to be carried with ease – they boast a strong protective casing, an integral handle and are well-balanced to aid outstanding all-round convenience. Adding to their desirability, they are remarkably quiet. Producing just 52dB – as quiet as the noise in an average office – they're ideal for use in environments where minimal noise is essential. What's more a Honda generator isn't just for Christmas. The sturdy and easy-to-carry EU is ideal for providing energy to equipment in a number of leisure activities throughout the year, from camping and caravanning holidays, to boating trips and essential garden maintenance.
Honda's clever inverter technology is a lightweight microprocessor that replaces the traditional heavy alternator. This inverter passes the raw, original power produced by the generator, through a microprocessor to produce a clean, consistent and stable power supply which is purer than the current provided from AC wall outlets. As a result, it's now safe to operate computers and other sensitive electrical equipment from a remote location without the fear of interrupted service or damage to the equipment.
As this advanced technology is fitted directly onto the engine, Honda engineers have been able to create a light and compact generator range that is perfect for leisure and business use.
The EU range also features a unique EcoThrottle system, which automatically adjusts engine speed to the optimum level, given the usage load. This not only reduces fuel consumption and operating noise, but it also keeps exhaust emissions to levels that easily meet even the strictest emission standards.
The environmental and convenience credentials of these Honda EU generators were demonstrated in the most extreme and demanding conditions when powering the recent Caudwell Xtreme Everest expedition, which made medical history earlier this year. To conduct a unique study into human performance at extreme altitudes, a team of doctors climbed to the summit of Mount Everest. Their data was gathered in several makeshift laboratories based at an altitude of 8,000 metres...all powered by Honda EU generators.
The EU generator range comes complete with Honda's impressive five year warranty, the most comprehensive guarantee you'll find anywhere.
