As we seem to be destined for many more years of power outages to prevent wild fires, it's probably time to start taking this fact of life into account when gifting. Today, there are a lot more options than the traditional loud and smokey portable gas-driven electricity generators. There are portable batteries, dual fuel generators, and inverter generators. On the playa, the old school generator is fine. In a nice neighborhood in the hills, you probably want something quieter. That's why an inverter generator is the right way to go: they produce fewer emissions, and they ramp up and down according to how much power it being used at the moment, saving fuel. WEN makes great, well-priced generators that won't poop out when things go dark. — AH
