What's the best choice for individuals that want to have backup power?
jhotz 1 year ago
I wasn't in the area of the country that suffered (or continues to suffer) power outages, but I have been through a couple of hurricanes in the past. Surprisingly, the longest I was ever without power wasn't because of a hurricane, it was because of an unexpected severe thunderstorm. I actually have a small gas powered generator, which is great for keeping my fridge running and a couple of fluorescent floor lamps on during a power outage, but I have concerns about hooking it up to my computers and smartphones because I'm not sure how clean the power output is. Is it safe to hook up a devices like a PC to a gas generator, or is there another choice that is better?
