Zoom on the A-iPower SUA2300i

In a few words, the A-iPower SUA2300i is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator perfectly suited for:

  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

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

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SUA2300i in use

The A-iPower SUA2300i

The A-iPower SUA2300i's engine, 80 cc Senci OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120V. It provides a running wattage of 1,800W and reaches a peak wattage of 2,300W. 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.

Featuring a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a quiet suburb), the inverter generator utilizes a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism for ignition.

With a full tank, the SUA2300i can operate for up to 10 hours (fuel consumption around 0.11 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 1.1 gallon.

With a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the SUA2300i delivers a clean sine wave—essential for safeguarding your delicate electronics when plugged into its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel is equipped with the following 2 AC outlets:

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

Additionally, it offers 2 DC outlets: there's a 5V USB port (USB-A) ideal for charging various electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets and a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle offering a convenient battery charging option.

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 SUA2300i's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L21.7 x W14 x H20.9 in) provides an aesthetic advantage and contributes to quieter operation compared to any ordinary, open frame product. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

With a dry weight of 50.7 lbs, the SUA2300i is convenient, ensuring it can be taken wherever power is needed. Moreover, its set of 2 wheels (⌀4") and its telecospic handle will allow you to easily shift it once it's on the ground.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower SUA2300i

The SUA2300i's control panel

A digital data center, one of the features of the SUA2300i's control panel, gives you information on the voltage, power output, lifetime run hours and fuel level, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

In addition to this info, several light indicators serve to show you when the oil level is too low, the generator is ready and the generator is overloaded.

As far as security is concerned, the generator comes with an automatic low oil shut-off, providing peace of mind during use.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the A-iPower SUA2300i also comes with some accessories: funnel, RV adapter, tool kit, battery charging cables and oil are included.

Product Videos

The A-iPower SUA2300i versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SUA2300i compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 50.7 pounds, the A-iPower SUA2300i finds itself in the expected weight range for inverter generators able to produce between 1500 and 2500 rated watts. if you wish to prioritize weight, the Genmax GM2000i is one of the top contenders in its power category, weighing only 34.2 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. 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 SUA2300i's runtime of up to 10 hours at a 25% load on a full tank positions it within the average autonomy range compared to other inverter generators with similar power. 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.
  • Though run time is a significant parameter, it's closely tied to the generator's fuel tank size. To get a comprehensive understanding, fuel efficiency must also be taken into account. 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 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.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the A-iPower SUA2300i is on the average side of the price range.

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

Can it run an AC window unit along with a regular size refrigerator? (Asked April 26, 2020)

Both appliances will require additional starting watts. You will need the actual wattage requirements (running and starting watts) for each of them, as it could be tight. Once you have them, you can use our wattage calculator to find suitable units.

I'm looking for a high altitude kit for my SUA2300i. I camp about 7,000 ft. (Asked May 26, 2020)

You should contact A-iPower, as they'll be the best placed to advise you on a suitable altitude kit/rejetting procedure.

Are you planning adding Bluetooth connectivity soon? (Asked September 24, 2020)

This question should be asked to A-iPower. We are an independent website, without any relationships with the manufacturers.

Is there a fuel pump on the gas line to be able to run an extended run gas tank? What is the size of the gas cap? (Asked September 28, 2020)

Fuel is gravity-fed. We unfortunately do not know the dimensions of the gas cap. They seem pretty standard and identical to the ones of the Yamaha EF2000is.

Can it run a sump pump? (Asked March 01, 2021)

The approximate wattage required for starting a 1/2 HP sump pump is 2150 watts and the approximate wattage for running it is 1050. Assuming that your sump pump matches these wattages (you should determine the actual running and starting watts of your pump), the SUA2300i will be able to power it.

What does it mean not RV ready? (Asked May 18, 2021)

It means that the unit does not feature a TT-30R outlet. We recommend reading our definition of RV-Ready.

Who makes the motor? (Asked July 09, 2021)

The engine is manufactured by Senci.

What is the replacement plug and gap (Asked December 26, 2021)

Spark plug should be E6RTC or equivalent. Spark plug gap is 0.028-0.031 inch.

After how many running hrs does the oil need to be changed? (Asked September 16, 2022)

Initial oil replacement should be after one month or 20 hours, then every 6 months or 100 hours.

Hi. What is the name of the company in China that Manufactures the Generator? (Asked December 18, 2022)

That would be Senci.

    I’ve had this generator for 2 years now. It has no failed to start. I have used it with my electric pressure washer out in the field a few times and during a power failure here at home. It has worked perfect. It’s quiet enough for me and the wife and is vey handy with wheels and pull bar although it isn’t overly heavy. I have changed to oil twice and no issues. I have nothing bad to say about this generator.

    + PROS:
    • quiet, works on one or two pulls, fuel efficient, easy to use, has the ability to parallel with supplied parts if two are used.
    - CONS:
    • None for me.
