Transit goods insurance
If you wish to insure, it will cost $1 for every $100 value or PART THEREOF. In other words if your order is for $145.00 the insurance will be $2.00. This insurance covers goods DAMAGED in transit. We do not automatically insure unless you specify it during the checkout. If you don't select insurance you are NOT insured.
You can buy cheap 240V petrol generators for around $500 these days, but they are inefficient, noisy and dangerous. Not dangerous for you, but for your 240V appliances. The problem is that due to their rudimentary output regulation, the engine must run at the one speed. Then, when they are working below the rated load of the generator the line voltage can increase from a nominal 230VAC to over 260VAC (in some cases up to and over 400VAC)! It is for this reason that we have never sold these products.
These inverter generator units are petrol powered and differ from cheaper units, in that the engine (which is built to the same design as the market leading Japanese brands) drives a DC alternator. A pure sine wave inverter then converts the DC to a stable pure sine wave 230VAC, suitable for appliances including sensitive electronics. No matter what the load is on the generator or the speed of the engine, the output remains very well regulated. The added benefit is that the petrol motor is far better matched to the load, reducing overall size, keeping engine speed in line with the load, reducing noise and increasing fuel efficiency. Additional features include electric key start, electric remote start, low oil cut-out, and overload circuit breaker.
