I use one, Ches, camping or not, as a backup. I've never had to use it while camping; my solar panel keeps up.

They have small batteries (I think mine is 18AH) so one would not power your microwave for long.

I don't know what the load would be, Ches. It might work for a while, but then you'd need hydro to recharge.

Why in the world would you want to watch TV while camping in Beautiful BC, eh? :conf

I just bought a Xantrexģ xPower 600™ Indoor / Outdoor Power Station. Haven't even got it out of the box yet, but it says it will run lights and such for 72 hours straight. we have a large marine battery with a 300 (I think) inverter on it to run our elec chainsaw, and it doesn't need charged until after two or three days of cutting, (probably 3 to 4 hours each day) this station is said to be better then that. so sounds good. :) and it's 110 output :banana
The jump-it I got, wasn't that great. wouldn't jump a car with a totally dead battery. :( don't remember what size I got.
