Description

Zoom on the A-iPower SC2400iP

In a nutshell, the A-iPower SC2400iP is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • Amateur DIY lovers
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

The subsequent sections will explore in detail its power characteristics, the diverse outlets it provides, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it offers.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SC2400iP in use

The A-iPower SC2400iP

The A-iPower SC2400iP's core is the 80 cc Yamaha OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120V, it provides a running wattage of 1,900W and a peak wattage of 2,400W. 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.

The inverter generator features a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism. It is rated for a noise of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a refrigerator).

With a fuel capacity of 1.1 gallon, the SC2400iP can run for up to 10 hours when the tank is full (fuel consumption is approximately 0.11 gallons per hour).

The SC2400iP generates a clean sine wave with <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), ensuring minimal electrical noise and fluctuations. This feature makes it ideal for powering sensitive electronics, providing stable and reliable AC power through the outlets.

Outlets

The control panel is equipped with the following 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle

Moreover, it comes equipped with 3 DC outlets: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle making battery charging a breeze and two 5V USB ports (USB-A) allowing you to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

Despite not having the 'RV Ready' status, this A-iPower generator provides the benefit of convenient RV compatibility through its L5-30R receptacle, enabling you to easily power your RV using an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor (included).

Portability

The A-iPower SC2400iP is an inverter generator and features an encased design with the following dimensions: L22 x W14 x H20 in. This design enhances aesthetics and helps minimize noise levels, distinguishing it from conventional, open frame products. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

The SC2400iP can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 51.8 lbs. Furthermore, with its set of 2 wheels (⌀4") and its telecospic handle, you can easily relocate the generator once it's set up.

Features

The SC2400iP's control panel

For easy status and activity monitoring of the SC2400iP, its control panel integrates a digital data center, offering insights into the power output, fuel level, frequency, lifetime run hours and voltage.

In addition to this info, when its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is on overload and the generator is ready, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

From a security standpoint, the product offers an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

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.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the A-iPower SC2400iP also is packed along with the following accessories: tool kit, battery charging cables, RV adapter, oil and funnel.

The A-iPower SC2400iP versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SC2400iP compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • Having a dry weight of 51.8 lbs, the A-iPower SC2400iP belongs in the expected weight range for inverter generators which produce 1500 to 2500 rated watts. If weight is a key factor for your needs, the Genmax GM2000i is noteworthy for being one of the top contenders in this power range, with a dry weight of 34.2 pounds.
  • This inverter generator offers a rated noise level of 52 dBA, placing it among the quieter alternatives in its type and power category. 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.
  • Offering up to 10 hours of running time on a full tank at 25% load, the SC2400iP is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful inverter generators. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the DuroMax XP2300iH, boasting with up to 13 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. As this inverter generator uses an estimated 0.11 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, it finds itself in the average gasoline consumption range of similar products. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the DuroMax XP2300iH, with a fuel consumption of 0.08 GPH could be in your good books.
