You can use this Gasoline Inverter Generators at home, or with the RV and camper: just fire it up at football games, or while camping and scouting. The 2,850 running watt Inverter Generator can even be used as a portable power source on industrial projects and job sites. The Sportsman Inverter Generator is equipped with two 120V AC outlets, one 120V RV ready outlet, and 2 USB outlets for charging electronic devices, which means you can use it to safely power your phone and tv!

Parallel Port Terminal
The parallel power port terminal allows you to chain multiple generators together to increase the total output power when using a Parallel Power Kit (sold separately).

* This Gasoline Inverter Generators features CO WARNING, which will automatically shut-off if dangerous levels of CO are detected. CO is commonly referred to as Carbon Monoxide. Large amounts of Carbon Monoxide can overcome you in minutes without warning — causing you to lose consciousness and suffocate. If CO detector detects increasing levels of CO gas, it automatically shuts off the engine. CO detector will detect the accumulation of Carbon Monoxide from other fuel burning sources such as engine powered tools or propane heaters used in the area of operation. After a shut-off, a blinking RED light in the CO detector badge on the side of the generator provides notification that the generator was shut off due to an accumulating CO hazard. The RED light will blink for at least five minutes after a CO shut-off.

Choosing a portable power generator for power outages involves considering various factors to ensure it meets your specific needs. I am providing a few key considerations:

  1. Power Requirements:
    • First, determine the essential appliances and devices you want to power during an outage. Calculate the total wattage needed to run these items simultaneously. This will help you choose a generator with an adequate power capacity. In this case, I use a Wattage Guide to help me figure out the math!
  2. Generator Type:
    • Portable generators come in different types, including inverter generators and conventional generators. Inverter generators provide clean and stable power, making them suitable for sensitive electronics. Conventional generators are generally more affordable but may produce less stable power.
  3. Fuel Type:
    • Portable generators can run on various fuels, such as gasoline, propane, or diesel. With this in mind, consider the availability and convenience of the fuel type in your area. Gasoline is commonly used but has a shorter shelf life than propane or diesel.
  4. Run Time:
    • Check the generator’s run time on a single tank of fuel. This is crucial for extended power outages. Generators with a longer run time require less frequent refueling.
  5. Portability and Size:
    • Consider the portability of the generator. Look for features like wheels and handles for easy transportation. What’s more, smaller and lighter generators are more convenient for home use.
  6. Noise Level:
    • Generators can be noisy, so consider the noise level produced by the generator. For example, look for models with lower decibel ratings if noise is a concern, especially if you live in a residential area.
  7. Start Mechanism:
    • Generators can have manual recoil start or electric start mechanisms. Electric start generators are easier to start, but may require a battery, which needs periodic maintenance. In every situation, choose a start mechanism that suits your preferences.
  8. Ease of Maintenance:
    • Consider the maintenance requirements of the generator. For example, look for models with easy access to filters and oil changes. Under these circumstances, regular maintenance is essential for the generator’s longevity.
  9. Brand Reputation and Reviews:
    • Research the reputation of different generator brands and models. Read customer reviews to understand the real-world performance and reliability of the generator you are considering.
  10. Safety Features:
    • In addition, I always check for safety features such as overload protection, low-oil shutoff, and GFCI outlets. These features help protect both the generator and connected devices.
  11. Budget:
    • Finally, set a budget for your generator purchase. Prices can vary based on features and capacity. Balance your requirements with your budget to find the best generator for your needs.
