Zoom on the A-iPower GXS1500i

In short, the A-iPower GXS1500i is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator adequately designed for:

  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the extra features it benefits from.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower GXS1500i in use

The A-iPower GXS1500i

Running on gasoline, the A-iPower GXS1500i operates with a 60 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, delivering 120V, with a running wattage of 1,200W and a peak wattage of 1,500W. Moreover, the parallel capability (parallel kit included) enables doubling of power output when paired with another similar or compatible unit, providing increased energy capacity and versatility for a wide range of needs.

Operating with a noise level of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a conversation at home), the inverter generator starts up via a manual recoil starter system.

With a full tank, the GXS1500i can operate for up to 8 hours (fuel consumption around 0.09 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 0.7 gallon.

Featuring a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the GXS1500i delivers a clean sine wave, guaranteeing the safety of your sensitive electronics plugged into its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Furthermore, it has 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) enabling convenient charging of devices like mobile phones and tablets.

Portability

The A-iPower GXS1500i is distinguished by its enclosed inverter generator design (L18.3 x W11.2 x H17.5 in), providing improved aesthetics and quieter performance compared to traditional, open frame units. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

With its weight totaling only 26.4 lbs, the GXS1500i stands out as a lightweight generator. With its manageable weight, one person can easily move it around, ensuring power wherever needed. Its handle (molded in the case) makes carrying it a simple task, further enhancing its convenience.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower GXS1500i

The GXS1500i's control panel

Some light indicators allow you to instantly see if the generator is on overload, the oil level is too low and the generator is ready.

Considering security aspects, the generator boasts an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), offering peace of mind throughout operation.

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.

In addition to the traditional documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to help you get started promptly, the A-iPower GXS1500i also includes several accessories: funnel, tool kit and oil.

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 weight, the A-iPower GXS1500i weighs merely 26.4 pounds, earning it a spot among the lighter inverter generators within the 1000 to 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.
  • With a noise rating as low as 52 dBA, this inverter generator is among the quieter options available in its type and power range. 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.
  • The GXS1500i's autonomy is somewhat low end compared to devices of its type and power range, as it reaches only up to 8 hours at 25% load on a full tank. If wyou wish to prioritize autonomy, the DuroMax XP2300iH shines as one of the top contenders, offering one of the highest run times among generators with similar power output, totaling up to 13 hours.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.09 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is a rather fuel-efficient one within its wattage category. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Genmax GM1200i, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.07 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

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.
