Zoom on the A-iPower GXS1500i

In summary, the A-iPower GXS1500i is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • Amateur DIY lovers

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed, including its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower GXS1500i in use

The A-iPower GXS1500i

The A-iPower GXS1500i houses a 60 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 1,200W along with a peak wattage of 1,500W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (parallel kit included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a conversation at home). Its starting mechanism is based on a conventional pull-start mechanism.

The fuel capacity of 0.7 gallon allows the GXS1500i to operate for up to 8 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.09 GPH).

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the GXS1500i produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel features the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Additionally, it features 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) allowing you to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

Portability

The A-iPower GXS1500i is an inverter generator and has an encased design of the following dimensions: L18.3 x W11.2 x H17.5 in. Thus, it is more aesthetical than conventional, open frame products. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

The GXS1500i is a lightweight, portable generator, as it only weighs 26.4 lbs. The product’s power can be enjoyed on-the-go, as it can be moved by a single person without trouble. It can also be carried without effort with a featured handle (molded in the case), further improving its convenience.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower GXS1500i

The GXS1500i's control panel

The light indicators show you if the oil level is too low, the generator is overloaded and the generator is ready.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, giving you a peace of mind during use.

It also includes a carbon monoxide sensor. This sensor is designed to monitor the level of carbon monoxide present during the generator's operation. If the generator is positioned incorrectly and carbon monoxide levels rise to an unsafe level, the generator will automatically shut down.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the A-iPower GXS1500i, the following accessories are also included: tool kit, oil and funnel.

Emissions

The A-iPower GXS1500i is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, making it usable in forested areas.

The unit also meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

Product Videos

The A-iPower GXS1500i versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower GXS1500i compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1000 and 2000 W).

  • In terms of its dry weight, the A-iPower GXS1500i stands at only 26.4 lbs, meaning that is one of the lighter inverters of the 1000-2000 rated wattage category If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Pulsar PGD16iSCO, weighing just 24 pounds.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 52 dBA, it can be considered as one of the more quiet of the products generating similar power. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Honda EU2200i. With just 48 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • As far as autonomy is concerned, providing up to 8 hours of runtime with a full tank at a 25% load, the GXS1500i falls into the low end in comparison with other inverters of a comparable power output. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the DuroMax XP2300iH, as it provides up to 13 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.09 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the more fuel efficient of the products in the above-mentioned wattage range. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Westinghouse iGen1500c, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.07 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1000-2000W inverter generators, the A-iPower GXS1500i is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
