The details..

'Emergency Power Options' by Steve Maxwell is an essential read for anyone looking to ensure they have reliable access to electricity during blackouts or emergencies. In this book, Maxwell draws on his extensive experience in emergency preparedness and survivalism to provide readers with detailed guidance on how best to choose an electric generator that meets their specific needs.

Maxwell covers all aspects of selecting a generator in detail, including factors such as power output, frequency of use, intended purpose (emergency household backup vs tools), quality of power produced by the unit and start-up wattage required. He also offers practical advice on how best to get the generated electricity from the machine into your home appliances safely.

One key issue addressed in 'Emergency Power Options' is determining what size generator you need based on your expected usage patterns. This can be tricky since not all devices will be used simultaneously nor require equal amounts of energy at any given time. Additionally, some appliances may require more start-up watts than indicated by their rated specifications which must also be taken into account when sizing up your ideal unit.

Finally, 'Emergency Power Options' explores different types of fuel available for generators - gasoline being most common but propane- or diesel-fueled models having certain advantages too - along with tips for maintaining optimal performance over time.
