Pro Tool Reviews just posted a video showing Ego's new 2000W generator!!!

2000W continuous, 3000W surge, charges batteries if plugged in, and future solar panel compatibility?!?!?!?  It's not cheap, but comes with 2 7.5Ah batteries.

WOW, I think this is what SO many people have been waiting for!!!

Looks great.  Love that the batteries can be swapped while the unit is running. So, if you have extra batteries or are charging batteries with a separate stand alone charger, your run time is greatly increased over SOB with internal batteries.

When I first saw this on their website I thought it was a "boom-box" - what a disappointment  : )

It needs wheels to make it more mobile instead of carrying it around.

Is that a 7.5Ah battery with the new fuel guage.??
Mentioned in the PTR video and the unit comes with 2 7.5 batteries.

EGO has answered the question about sine wave on the Home Depot inverter product page. It's a true sine wave.

Hi Bob, good question! It's a true sine wave. Thank you for your question.

Funny...when I looked at the Home Depot page this morning, the price was $999 (but it was not available in my local store, or any store within 100 miles, and they wouldn't ship it.)

Now it's listed at $1197, and they are willing to ship it to me or my store.

At $999 it's tempting. At $1,200, it's a bit "boy I wish I could buy one of those".  I wonder if Ego will send out coupons like they did with the Nexus Escape....

Top also has a nice storage compartment for cords.

Could you please post a photo of the bottom of the power brick with the ratings/certifications info? I'm most interested in what the output DC voltage (I assume?) from the power brick is.

One of my biggest pet peeves, marketing materials without cords. Anyone know if it's possible to run power cords behind gladiator storage systems like this? Otherwise, those battery chargers are going to be pretty useless there.

So, Alex, are you planning on putting up a storage system like this? Looking forward to seeing it when you are done.

Anyway, the answer is yes, wires can be run behind it if you use 2x4 spacers to space it away from the wall.

I'd consider it but I wouldn't hold your breath. I store all my tools (summer) in an open barn from the 1800s. I think the clean lines of the gladiator system would stick out like a sore thumb. Right now I hang most of it on rusty nails and hooks. 

In the winter it all gets squirreled away in the basement crawlspace.

Yep. Wires can be ran behind.

Also at Lowe's today they had the gladiator panes on clearance for 27 bucks each. Get over to one and see if they are being cleared out for you too
