    The video said that the term "solar generator" was strange so which ham were you referring to?

    If he ever watched the videos he'd know most of his comments he puts on Jason's threads are off-base...but he doesn't watch so, therefore, he doesn't know that Jason actually mentioned this and how the naming is not an accurate depiction of what the product does.

    sadly solar generator is an industry term for larger portable battery solutions. Bioenno is not the first to use this term and they will not be the last. Its like many of the other buzz words these days like cloud computing. We have to include the word solar even though our product does not natively do anything with solar.

    I thought it was a strange term. But I am strange also. So I guess I should be happy with the term too.

    Wow, I just didn't know that I had built a 'solar generator' by using a folding solar panel, a charge controller, a battery and a power pole distribution board.

    Actually it's worse. Most of these so-called "solar generators" don't even come with solar panels, they're just batteries with inverters and charge controllers. Ignoring what many manufacturers call them, it's a handy package, but the term is misleading.

    Having watched the video, the OP questioned the term himself, so I think we're good to go on the ideological purity test. :)
