OK there is the disconnect... I was going to plug the iCharger 310b into the 12v DC outlet, until I heard what you guys were saying. If the voltage is "un-regulated" that is sure not gonna work. I have not hung a meter on it yet.

So much for thinkin'

Not sure how much you're going to see with a meter. You really need an oscilloscope. Also, some chargers monitor the stability of the voltage input very closely looking for signs of trouble and may refuse to work with an unstable voltage source.

Well if the 30volt comment is anywhere near accurate, I should see voltage fluctuation between idle and full throttle.

12 to 30 is a pretty big swing. Yes a scope would be nice, but that is not happening at the moment.

Be curious to see what you find. I've never checked mine myself.

I cannot run my Honda generators with the load sensing automatic engine rpm feature turned off. Doing so increases engine rpm at a constant speed, and I certainly see the voltage ramp up higher than I would feel comfortable applying to a 12v battery, let alone an electronic device.

I must use the engine conservation setting to allow a slow idle. This yields around 15v on my unit. A typical automotive alternator outputs about 14.4v to charge the batteries.

Please report back your DC output readings with various engine rpms.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Actual Ryobi Voltage Measurement Results.
I am pretty much getting 14.37v across the entire range of engine settings... I had a 16amp dc load on a charger connected to the generator. At idle I was getting 13.73 volts but later it was always 14.37volts.

I certainly never saw anything higher. It was done with a decent digital voltage tester.

sounds like your generator as has voltage regulator on the dc output. Great news.

The HONDA carb fits right on the Ryobi.
