Hey guys,
i'm trying to find the smallest generator that will make use of the fast charger. I keep coming back to this one
Robot Check


Can someone recommend a better one ?


thanks
Marc

You need at least 3600 running watts for the rapid charger. The B&S Q6500 is a great option. Regarding the HF generators, i had luck with my Predator 4000 for about 8 months or so and then it started acting up on me. I'm assuming because it only has 3200 running watts and the rapid charger really stresses the generator a lot.

So far, very little use, but I like my B&S Q6500. Got it shipped from Home Depot on sale, then applied some type of HD coupon they sent me, I think its as good as any medium price, medium output, medium quiet genset out there.

I have a harbor freight 8750 that works well. Loud but doesn't struggle to charge my bike. They frequently have sales on this model. It isn't exactly small but I have no problem rolling it around.

What do you think about this one - just 64 lb and works well with rapid 230 V charger. I have been using it to charge my both Altas for 2 years. You can easily load it into your truck by one hand.

We’ve talked about the European generators at length several times, problem always boils down to the cost to import to the US and then it’s only really good for charging the bikes. Certainly would be ideal for the Altas though.
