Zoom on the A-iPower SUA2000i

In a nutshell, the A-iPower SUA2000i 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 who wish to upgrade their experience to another level

Over the following sections, you'll uncover its power characteristics, the selection of outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it includes.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SUA2000i in use

The A-iPower SUA2000i

The A-iPower SUA2000i's core is the 80 cc Senci OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120V, it provides a running wattage of 1,600W and a peak wattage of 2,000W. Furthermore, its parallel capability (parallel kit included) allows power output to double when connected to another similar or compatible unit, ensuring expanded energy capacity and reliability for various applications.

With a noise rating of 58 dBA (less noisy than a refrigerator), the inverter generator features a traditional recoil pull-start mechanism.

Equipped with a 1.1 gallon fuel tank, the SUA2000i ensures continuous operation for up to 10 hours with a full tank (fuel usage approximately 0.11 gallons per hour).

Featuring a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the SUA2000i delivers a clean sine wave, guaranteeing the safety of your sensitive electronics plugged into its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel features 2 AC outlets as follows:

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

Moreover, it boasts 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle offering a convenient battery charging option.

While not classified as 'RV Ready,' this A-iPower generator can still provides the advantage of RV connection via its L5-30R receptacle, ensuring power supply to your RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor (included).

Portability

The A-iPower SUA2000i is distinguished by its enclosed inverter generator design (L19.3 x W11.4 x H19 in), providing improved aesthetics and quieter performance compared to traditional, open frame units. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

Weighing just 48.5 lbs, the SUA2000i can be considered a lightweight portable generator. The product’s power can be enjoyed on-the-go, as it can be moved by a single person without trouble. The inclusion of a handle (molded in the case) makes carrying it a breeze, adding to its convenience.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower SUA2000i

The SUA2000i's control panel

The device's light indicators will illuminate to indicate if the generator is on overload, the oil level is too low and the generator is ready.

With its built-in fuel gauge, the inverter generator provides quick and convenient gas level checks.

From a security standpoint, the generator is furnished with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, ensuring peace of mind during operation.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the A-iPower SUA2000i also comes with several accessories, including: funnel, RV adapter and battery charging cables.

The A-iPower SUA2000i versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SUA2000i compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • As its weight is 48.5 pounds, the A-iPower SUA2000i falls in the expected weight range of the inverters in the 1500-2500 rated wattage category. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Genmax GM2000i with only 34.2 pounds.
  • As this inverter generator has its lowest possible noise of 58 dBA, it should be considered noisier compared to its peers of a comparable running wattage. 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 SUA2000i is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful inverter generators. 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.
  • Run time is crucial, but it heavily relies on the fuel tank's capacity. Thus, considering fuel efficiency alongside is essential. This inverter generator reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.11 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.08 GPH, the DuroMax XP2300iH is a device you could look out for.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: A-iPower SUA2000i vs A-iPower SC2000i.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the A-iPower SUA2000i 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.

How is this unit in higher altitudes such as 6000 ft? (Asked August 28, 2020)

We had reports of people running it at 7000 ft without any issues. However, we'd recommend contacting the manufacturer to obtain an altitude kit. Make sure to also read our article on operating a generator in high altitudes.
