Their inverter units seem to only be 1 KW and 2 KW.  They seem to also offer a
complete line of conventional generators and even a 25 KW home standby

No experience, but there are several positive reviews on Wal-Mart's site.
Wal-Mart will ship to any of their stores for free.

One review mentions that the unit is not as quiet as a Honda.  Also, they do not
seem to have the parallel operation feature like the EU series.

I doubt if Honeywell really owns a generator factory, so these are probably
private branded Chinese or Korean units.

I saw the 7 KW unit at a Costco a couple of weeks ago, which
is what got me thinking. (Yes, I know that neither the Honeywell
nor Costco web pages have it).

In the Good Old Daze the Honeywell Corporation actually
did make lots and lots of good quality electrical gear,
including generators, motor-generators, switching
equipment, and much, much, more.

Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key

Honeywell is also making a windmill generator.  There was one on
display at a SAM's store here, and is designed to generate electricity
optimized for lower wind speeds..  There was one on display here
at the local SAM"s club for about a month, and I missed it.  You
can order one at any ACE hardware store (don't know if that is
local or not).

Here is the link I have for it:


Looks like Honeywell is slowly getting into
renewable energy.  I hope they come up with
some solar panels the average homeowner can afford.

It appears that Honeywell's business plan is to simply rent out their trademark
to whomever.  I found the following on one of the web pages for that wind
turbine: "The Honeywell Trademark is used under license from Honeywell
International Inc. Honeywell International Inc. makes no representation or
warranties with respect to this product."

A couple years ago when I was actually employed, I used to buy Honeywell-branded
NIMH batteries for certain 2-way radios that I maintained.  They had a perfectly
good product, but that outfit seemed to have no particular connection to the
Honeywell company except for use of their logo.
