As the A-iPower SC2000i and the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 compare to the A-iPower SC2000i.

  • Power: As both the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 and the A-iPower SC2000i share the same running wattage of 1600W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2000 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: We unfortunately lack the data to compare the runtimes of these 2 generators. One of the manufacturers only provides data @25% load, whereas the other only gives data @50% load. It makes little sense to compare runtimes at different loads.
  • Fuel Efficiency: For the same reasons as pointed out above, we do not see any sense in comparing fuel consumption at different loads. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<2.5% for the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 and <3% for the A-iPower SC2000i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 51.5 dBA, the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 allows for a quieter operation than the 58 dBA of the A-iPower SC2000i. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L19.3" x W11" x H17.9", the Yamaha EF2000iSv2 offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the A-iPower SC2000i and its L21" x W12.5" x H19".
  • Weight: With a weight of 44.1 lbs, the EF2000iSv2 is slightly less heavy than the SC2000i (which weighs 46 lbs).
  • Portability: Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Yamaha EF2000iSv2 and the A-iPower SC2000i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the A-iPower SC2000i does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Yamaha EF2000iSv2's and the A-iPower SC2000i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: These 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
