Re: Realistic expectations for my house batteries

Be careful with the Honda genset. Their usual "inverter" type gensets are designed for 110/120VAC output, and the 12VDC output is intended JUST for battery charging. The DC quality is incredibly ragged and can damage electronics if it is used as a DC supply directly. Somewhere on the web, there are some wonderful o'scope pictures showing this in detail.
