I am confused . 5 kw instead of 17.5 kw / 26 kw surge ? And 80% of 26 = 20.8 ? Not 17.5 kw ?

God bless

It's all in the math.

The Honda 7000 is a 7kW generator that can put out 5kW continuously.

I would be surprised if the "7kw Honda" could make 5kw sustained for an extended period of time.

26kw is the useless factory surg rating. 17.5kw is the running watts.

So you're saying that for $5,000 it's not worth it?

What the honda?
It's 5,000 dollars too?

If you are going to get a "7kw generator" with the intent of running it hard periodically to boost charge a electric vehicle there is absolutely no need for an inverter generator.
Now if you were going to completely charge the vehicle, run the A/C or heater and use the generator a lot below half capacity fairly often then the inverter may be a good choice.

So you don't think an inverter generator would be necessary? It seems the inverter generators get real expensive real quick, whereas other portable generators are much cheaper.

It's been below freezing for the past few days. In January I'd like to go to Montrose, about 65 miles from here. But I've got several changes in elevation and the cold to deal with. I might make it on one charge, but then again I might not. A backup portable generator would be great, but not if it costs an arm and a leg or fries the onboard charger.

How much for something like that? What would be the best way to supply 370v DC at 15kW. It might actually work to just connect to the battery terminals (with a fuse) with no further mods.

A fuse and possibly a diode.
