Portable generators are perfect for a wide variety of uses. Although they generally are not particularly big or suited to powering a whole house, if you have certain appliances that need a constant supply of electricity in the event of a power cut or want to make sure you have an electricity supply while travelling somewhere remote then this could be the option for you.

This is especially important for people running their businesses from home or who have appliances that cannot go very long without power, or just knowing you have the ability to use electricity in the event of an emergency.
A portable generator is much cheaper to buy than its alternatives. What your power needs are, however, will determine whether a portable generator would be suited to you.
