Don't know anything about Alden Brand. The more important thing is what engine does it have (Briggs & Stratton, Tecumseh, etc). Of course, the people selling them are going to say they're good (even if they aren't). The other factor is the wattage rating. Some of the smaller generators only have 2500-3500W rating - which means you could power a couple hair dryers. This would still handle the two 100W trouble lights with no problem. Please bear in mind that I am not an expert on these things. The 5000-6500W generators I mentioned earlier could run a number of things like some lighting, fridge, microwave, couple of 1500W portable room heaters, etc., (but not the whole house). I also do not claim to be the teacher, either.
