Not for me - I'm happy running off my home (shed's) circuitry.

But, one of my (rural) neighbors is semi-interested in a LW and since he is mostly off-grid, asked me if I knew if a LW can be charged off a petrol generator.

Specifically, a Honda with 3kW (3.6kVA) max output and 2.8kW (3.36kVA) continuous output coming through 2 x 230V sockets, for Level 1 overnight charging.

I told him I had no idea, and I would ask the cognoscenti... so here I am asking y'all :)

If it is the 3600CX then I do not believe it is an inverter generator, the possibility of dirty power is real so
I would be inclined to install a quality filter between the output and LiveWire.
Might be wise to upgrade his energy system prior to purchase of LiveWire.
