Description

Zoom on the A-iPower SUA2000iD

In a nutshell, the A-iPower SUA2000iD is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level

In the upcoming sections, you'll discover its power characteristics, the array of outlets it presents, its overall portability, and the additional features it possesses.

Power & Run Time

Featuring dual-fuel technology, the A-iPower SUA2000iD provides 120V, and offers both power and versatility. Running on gasoline, it delivers a running wattage of 1,600W and a starting wattage of 2,000W. When propane-powered, it offers 1,500 running watts and 1,800 starting watts. Moreover, since it is parallel capable (parallel kit included), its power may be doubled if linked to a second compatible unit.

With a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a refrigerator), the inverter generator's ignition is facilitated by a traditional recoil pull-start mechanism.

The running time of the SUA2000iD, with its 1.1 gallon fuel capacity, can reach up to 10 hours on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.11 GPH). With propane, it can reach up to 30 hours (estimation based on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.16 GPH).

Featuring a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the SUA2000iD 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 5V USB port (USB-A) with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

This A-iPower generator features an L5-30R receptacle, enabling an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor (included). However, it is still not quite RV ready.

Portability

With its enclosed inverter generator design (L20.9 x W12.4 x H21.1 in), the A-iPower SUA2000iD offers superior aesthetics and operates with minimized noise levels, distinguishing itself from standard, open frame generators. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

Considered a lightweight portable generator, the SUA2000iD weighs just 48 lbs. Thanks to its lightweight design, one person can easily move it around, ensuring power availability wherever you travel. Its handle (molded in the case) adds to the convenience, making it easy to carry.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower SUA2000iD

The SUA2000iD's control panel

Several light indicators serve to show you when the generator is ready, the generator is overloaded and its oil levels are insufficient.

As far as security is concerned, the generator comes with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), providing peace of mind during use.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the A-iPower SUA2000iD also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit, funnel, RV adapter, propane hose and oil.

Product Videos

The A-iPower SUA2000iD versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SUA2000iD compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 48 lbs, the A-iPower SUA2000iD falls within the expected weight range for inverter generators in the 1500 to 2500 rated wattage. If you are mindful of weight, the Genmax GM2000i is among the top contenders in this power range, with a dry weight of 34.2 pounds.
  • At just 52 dBA rated noise level, this inverter generator is positioned as one of the quieter choices among devices delivering similar type and power. If you wish to prioritize minimal noise, the Honda EU2200i stands out as one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, with a rating of 48 dBA.
  • The SUA2000iD, offering a run time of up to 10 hours with a full tank at a 25% load, falls within the average autonomy range when compared to its peers. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the DuroMax XP2300iH, with up to 13 hours.
  • While run time is vital, it hinges on the fuel capacity. To grasp the full picture, we must also factor in fuel efficiency. At a 25% load, the inverter generator consumes an estimated 0.11 gallons of gasoline per hour, falling within the average consumption range of units with similar output. If you're placing a high priority on fuel consumption, the DuroMax XP2300iH, with a low fuel consumption rate of 0.08 GPH, could be an option to consider.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W dual fuel inverter generators, the A-iPower SUA2000iD is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.

Unlike many websites, we did our best to research each of the specs above. That being said, we are not immune to making the occasional mistake or omission. Should you notice any missing or incorrect values, don't hesitate to suggest improvements so we can address the issue.
* Propane runtime is our own estimation, based on a 20 lbs tank and NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs of propane = 1 gal of gasoline.

    Purchased and in the process of breaking generator in. So far the unit is better than expected. I only want to use propane and have found start up extremely easy. Push primer on hose 4-5 times…pull out choke…starts on first pull. The effort required to pull start is easy, with no force required, gentle pull.

    + PROS:
    • As advertised...excellent.
    - CONS:
    • No cons
