The 1,000-watt ETQ TG1200 surges to 1,200 watts, providing enough power for camping trips or running a few household appliances. It does not use inverter technology so may not be safe for running electronics like computers and TVs. It does provide both AC and DC outlets; you can use the DC outlet to charge batteries. If you're willing to pay a little more for more power, the 1,400-watt All Power America APG3014 surges to 2,000 watts, and it gets good reviews from owners.
