Default 200-300W 24/7 generator

Missing opportunity, I would be willing to spent way more for a 24/7 200-300W unit with an idiot light showing it is running.

Not really, I intended to write 200-300W, 24/7 quiet and tiny.

For our use, even 100 watts would be enough. We haven't used 100ah in a day yet, so 185ah per day would be way more than enough.

Back to the previously discussed linear generator that has been discussed a few times. I would certainly be on board.

Must be an inside joke but I have to admit, I don't get it.

Imagine a fuel cell delivering 100-300W powered by LPG or gas, silent, small, requiring an idiot light for making you aware that it is running. Well, it doesn’t exist yet because technology is just not here if will ever be.

Extrapolate these dreams to a well-known internal combustion engine with liner/free piston technology.

WOW, Thank you for the education - a bit over my head but I do get the gist. It's just light years ahead of the technology I'm used to (eg, I have spent the last 20 years vintage racing my Austin Healey and trying to make SU carburetors work well and make an old car fast...). In other words I'm pretty good with 40+year old technology but not with current tech. I haven't had time to go thru the entire thread but I just watched the two youtube videos above and am quite intrigued and plan on learning more.
I am quite lost when it comes to the electrical options - we have a 1999 Xplorer and the one upgrade I would like is a compressor refer because we have had nothing but problems with the absorption refer. So I am reading all the old threads I can find to try to understand what it would take to make that change. However, I don't think I want the expense of Lithium. Anyway, I will keep researching and reading threads.
Again, thanks for your patience with a newby.
Dave

"400,000 rpm!"

Pick a piece of that out of your butt! Wouldn't use it for a pillow but I'd pay $2k for that right now,

Sitting on a remote campsite sounding like a distant G-V does it for me!

I would vote for free piston success. No lubricating oil and high efficiency. http://www.libertine.co.uk/wp-conten...ton-Engine.pdf
