For RV or car campers looking for a little extra kick, a lightweight generator can be the perfect purchase. Capable of powering a microwave, television, or water heater, a portable generator can make your next stay on the open road or in the outdoors a more comfortable one, while eliminating the need to run your RV. Thus, a portable generator is also the most efficient option.
This compact wonder from Yamaha tips the scale at just 44 pounds. Plus, it's efficient, capable of running for eight hours on a single gallon of gasoline. This Yamaha is fairly quiet, so you won't disturb your fellow campers. For $899, the Yamaha EF2000iS can put out a consistent 160 watts of power for you.
The Honda EU3000is is suitable for those looking for a little more power. Weighing in at 135 pounds, the Honda EU3000is isn't lightweight.

Moreover, the Honda EU3000is includes a 3.4 gallon tank, allowing it to keep chugging all night and all day. The Honda EU3000is can be found for just under $2,000.
