Great Emergency Generator

I'm pleased with the investment in the Safari ME. Pro: 1. Fast charge with electric outlet 2. I've been able to charge items used for cooking (hot pot, electric burner), hair (hair dryer & curling iron), lights, laptop, cell phone 3. Can be protected with EMP bag 4. Anderson cable allows me to keep the generator inside while connected to outside solar panels Con: 1. Heavy. I purchased a 4-wheel dolly at a hardware store to hold and move it. 2. Slow charge with solar panel. 1 24V solar panel is not enough! The bundle has 6 panels but not everyone has the space to store this. I'm still experimenting with solar charge. Setup of the solar panels is not as easy and quick as I expected since they are heavy and need to be aligned with sun properly.

Great machine, nice surprise.

I was planning to buy a dual fuel generator for months for my house in Miami but for a great surprise I bought the ME generator very skeptical about solar generators. I purchased mine from Costco with 3 extra panels, the first time that I saw the unit at the store I returned home and I did some research on the price and specifications of the unit, I liked what I saw especially that comes with extra panels, I said to my self “If don’t like it I will retuned” no problem with Costco, big nice surprise, I have been using it every where in my house, connecting my refrigerator for 6 hours in one charge, note: (Not every case is the same,it works for me) using the ME with my washing machine. Today the ME was 62 % charged and wash two cars using a 3200 psi pressure cleaner, vacuum the cars inside and I have 10% left, Very very happy with this generator so far so good. I am planning to keep it. I have not used the ME with the solar panels, I’ll let you know as soon as possible. PS : I forgot, I was also charging my I phone while I was washing the cars.
