The reason for buying a portable generator may vary from person to person—one might want to power up tools on a remote jobsite, another to use for camping and recreation, or still another for backup electricity during a power outage—but if your reason for choosing a portable generator is portability then you'll want a generator that's truly portable.

A couple of months ago I teamed up with Weller to give away one of their brand new soldering irons that feature built in LED lights.
