    • Ah, I never thought about a generator. Feels so old school but you really can't beat the energy density of gasoline. I wonder what the effective watt-hours produced per gallon of gasoline for those small Honda EU line generators.

      I occasionally camp with a guy who uses a Honda EU2200i. It's remarkably quiet but the disadvantages are:
      1. It sits dozens of feet away from the camp table to avoid breathing the exhaust, so you have to run an extension cord over to the table. A little Goal Zero with USB ports and a 110v outlet right there on the table would be convenient.
      2. On a still night with zero wind and zero human noise, the constant thump of the engine is annoying. Though in a busy campground, like the Yosemite valley ones, you literally can't hear it over the chatter of the crowds.
