    I doesn’t talk about inputs/outputs. Does anyone know it can be plugged into a TV via component cables?

  • Ernice Gilbert

    Yes it sure can :D

  • Joseph Garrett

    Brilliant. Then I can record.

    no you cant plug it into the TV, they had that as one of the QA questions posted on the blog a while ago.
    3 hours?
    is that all!
    my bloody go lasts longer then that!
    how can it take almost as long to charge as it does to discharge?
    out of all the places they could of cheeped out on they had to do it on the battery!
    not exactly a portable system when it has to be married to its own generator!
