This whole video could be replaced with them just spending 10 seconds reading the maximum power/current rating plate on the generator or its circuit breaker.

As "high tech" increases, the US public become increasingly illiterate regarding 100s-year old concepts like basic physics.

Of course, the far better thing to do is to go to a campground with electric hookups and charge off of that....

What's wrong with this picture? Charging an electric car with a gas generator
in the middle of a pristine area! Some people just don't get it....
A lot of people, that own large motor homes. Have on board gas generators. To power there rigs off grid. They might pull a EV smart car behind the large RV. For getting around.

What is the model# of that small Honda genset?

That may be a gasser being towed in the photo; Smart_EV might need a mini-flatbed:

63757


This aluminum one tilts back and weighs just 650 lb.

Agreed however, driving an electric car to the location and then using a gas generator to charge it,
probably used more fuel than an ICE car would have used to get there to say nothing of the emissions difference...

pretty sure that's NOT an electric being towed 4wheels down. It can be done but ..Owner's manual advice is up to 40miles, under 40mph. Better off to get a 1 axle trailer
