Detailed Review

This quiet yet powerful inverter generator will bring clean energy to your camp sites, back yard, or construction sites. Designed to power electronics safely without fluctuations in voltage, you can plug in all your favorite gadgets without worrying about damaging them. All of the generator models come with at least one USB outlet which is perfect for phones or tablets.

The surge watts and running watts vary depending on the model you purchase. We’ve created an easy chart to help you see the different units available and their respective features:

These inverter generators run between 57 and 51 decibels at 22 feet away. That’s quieter than the average conversation (60 decibels) especially if you have a loud family!

The units also come easy to carry. The four smallest models weigh under 50 pounds. The largest model weighs just over 80 pounds but comes with a set of wheels.

Another great feature is the Eco-Mode switch. This allows the generator to adjust its fuel consumption based on the amount of Watts being used. Pretty great, huh?
