Zoom on the A-iPower SUA2300i

In a nutshell, the A-iPower SUA2300i 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
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SUA2300i in use

The A-iPower SUA2300i

The A-iPower SUA2300i'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 1,800W and a peak wattage of 2,300W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (parallel kit included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

The inverter generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism. It is rated for a noise of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a conversation at home).

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

The SUA2300i produces a clean sine wave: thanks to a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), your sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 2 AC outlets:

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

Furthermore, it has 2 DC outlets: there's a 5V USB port (USB-A) with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient and a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle allowing you to easily charge your batteries.

Even if this A-iPower generator isn't quite RV Ready, it still allows for an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor (included), thanks to its L5-30R receptacle.

Portability

Since the A-iPower SUA2300i is an inverter generator, its closed design (L21.7 x W14 x H20.9 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

The SUA2300i's dry weight of 50.7 lbs lets you use its power anywhere needed. In addition, with its set of 2 wheels (⌀4") and its telecospic handle, it may be shifted with ease, once placed on the floor.

Features

The SUA2300i's control panel

Monitoring of the SUA2300i's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the voltage, lifetime run hours, fuel level and power output and is one of the features of its control panel.

In addition to this info, several light indicators serve to show you when its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is on overload and the generator is ready.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the A-iPower SUA2300i, the following accessories are also included: funnel, oil, battery charging cables, RV adapter and tool kit.

Emissions

The A-iPower SUA2300i is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

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).

  • At a weight of 50.7 pounds, the A-iPower SUA2300i places in the expected weight range of the inverter generators in the 1500-2500 rated wattage range. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Genmax GM2000i, weighing just 34.2 pounds.
  • With a lowest possible noise of 52 dBA, this inverter generator places itself amongst the more quiet of the products delivering similar power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU2200i, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 48 dBA.
  • Offering up to 10 hours of running time on a full tank at 25% load, the SUA2300i 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.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. 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 further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the DuroMax XP2300iH, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.08 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

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

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the A-iPower SUA2300i 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.

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.
