They say the best things come in small packages, and this lightweight, powerful and reliable Loncin LC200i Inverter Generator is a good example. Loncin’s aim is to lower carbon emissions while using the latest technology to develop a range of highly economical and reliable products.This suitcase-style generator with its minimal footprint is ideal for providing cheap, consistent electricity for leisure use and as a back-up for use at home, providing safe ‘spike’ free power, ideal for sensitive equipment like laptops, games consoles and televisions susceptible to power variations. *The inverter is a lightweight microprocessor that replaces the traditional heavy alternator and thanks to the carefully developed inverter technology, the voltage output is isolated from the engine speed, maintaining a smooth and consistent output of power, with no fluctuations. Power cuts can and do happen and if you work from home, perhaps in a rural area this generator can offer peace of mind – enabling you to pick up and send e-mails and keep working. *Or perhaps you want to use your laptop or watch TV while camping or on a caravanning holiday. This generator is a great, cost effective power source for those times when you are away from the power grid. *It has a fuel capacity of 4.2 litres, and rated output of 1.6kw (120/240V) of continuous power and reduces fuel consumption by up to 25%, making it an economical, as well as a reliable, option. Low in carbon emissions the Loncin 2000i Inverter really is a generator for the modern age, with a powerful 79cc, 148F single-cylinder, 4-stroke OHV engine. It has an eco throttle, varying the engine speed to suit the applied load, helping keep the noise down in low loadsIn fact, this model is remarkably quiet, at 61 dB (A) compared with many similar specified models. We can vouch for this having seen and heard it in action. It has an easy and reliable and a generous running time of around seven hours on a full tank, enough to do some uninterrupted work on your computer and still have time to watch a DVD. A carrying handle makes it easy to transport and with dimensions of just 49.9cm in length, by 28.5cm width with a height of 45.5cm, it will store comfortably in most caravans, camper vans or even the boot of the car. Low in vibration, it has an eco throttle and a DC output included for battery charging, making it a very versatile unit. NB: It is important to check the wattage requirements of the equipment you intend to power so you can buy the right generator. For your information a general laptop requirement would be under perhaps 50-70 and a modern flat-screen TV (32”) again usually between 70 and 150. * The generator should never be placed inside an occupied building, garage or a tent and you should always plug sensitive equipment in after the generator has been started, not before.
