Portable Generator

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

The Honda ENEPO EU9iGB generator is the second generator from Honda to be powered by in-home-use butane gas canisters. The ENEPO EU9iGB generator can output 900VA and features Honda’s original high-speed multi-polar alternator generation system and sine wave inverter, enabling it to power to sensitive equipment such as your Macintosh, TiVo VOIP Phones or router/modems. Keep in mind that this is intended for use outdoor use only. The Honda ENEPO EU9iGB generator has a fold-down handle that makes it easy to pull it out when the need arrises.

Compared to Honda gasoline-powered 900VA generators, the ENEPO EU9iGB produces about 10% lower CO2 emissions per hour. The new generator will go on sale on May 13 at Honda power products dealers, Honda-designated home centers, Honda Cars automobile dealers and Honda motorcycle dealers throughout Japan. USA release dates have not been announced as of this writing.

The Eco-Throttle function automatically optimizes engine RPMs based on the power consumption of powered devices, contributing to enhanced fuel economy and reduced noise, which is perfect when you have close by neighbors.

On a less serious note, it does has a warning LED to indicate when the unit is laying on its side. I am guessing that you could figure this out, when you tilt your head to read the display.

Squad 51, start CPR…

Monday, June 29th, 2009

LUCAS 2Manpower is stretched pretty thin when it comes to medical personnel in the field. Having an extra pair of hands perform CPR for you can mean the difference between life & death. Swedish company Jolife AB, has just  realesed the LUCAS 2, a chest compressor for use by paramedics and other field medics. It does just one thing, the simple task of pumping the chest. Which in turn allows the paramedic to continue with other life-saving measures. Unlike its predecessor, LUCAS 1 which is still available ran on compressed air, LUCAS 2 runs on battery power. It can run for up to 45 minutes on a single charge. In May of 2009 it was approved for use in Europe and Canada, and it should be available in the US by the third quarter this year.
