It's big, heavy etc, but great for smoothies.
Now you can get smaller versions, S30, S50, S55
I just purchased an S55 exclusively for the boat.
I am a BlendTec guy. But yes, it is big and heavy. I haven't actually used it on the boat yet, and not sure if I will bring it when we leave. At 1575 watts, it will turn your iPhone
into a smoothie. But at 1575 watts, it will require powering up the Honda
2000, if it can even withstand the surge load. I'm thinking it might withstand the surge as the blender doesn't start off at full power. Starting a generator
just to make a smoothie seems silly, but maybe not a big deal when I am already going to make water
or to charge the batteries in the morning.
