Description

Zoom on the A-iPower SUA2301i

In short, the A-iPower SUA2301i is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator adequately designed for:

  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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

The A-iPower SUA2301i is powered by a 80 cc Senci OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 1,800W as well as a peak wattage of 2,300W. In addition, the parallel capability (parallel kit included) empowers doubling of power output when linked 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 rainfall), the inverter generator utilizes a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism for ignition.

With a fuel capacity of 0.9 gallon, the SUA2301i may run for up to 9 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.1 GPH).

Delicate electronics can be plugged in the AC outlets safely, as the SUA2301i generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel features the following 3 AC outlets:

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

Moreover, it boasts 3 DC outlets: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle enabling simple battery charging for added ease and two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) ideal for charging various electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Despite not meeting the 'RV Ready' criteria, this A-iPower generator grants the advantage of simple RV compatibility via its L5-30R receptacle, enabling you to conveniently power your RV by using an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor (included).

Portability

The A-iPower SUA2301i is distinguished by its enclosed inverter generator design (L21.5 x W12.8 x H21.1 in), providing improved aesthetics and quieter performance compared to traditional, open frame units. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

At a mere 42.2 lbs, the SUA2301i is a standout option for those in need of a lightweight and portable power solution. The device can be easily moved by just one person and thus, its power may be enjoyed on-the-go. Its telecospic handle adds to the convenience, making it easy to carry.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower SUA2301i

The SUA2301i's control panel

Included in the control panel of the SUA2301i, a digital data center assists in tracking its status and activity by providing details on the frequency, power output, voltage, fuel level and lifetime run hours. To offer you even more control and easy operation during nighttime, the panel is LED-lit.

In addition to this info, the device’s light indicators will display if the oil level is too low and the generator is overloaded.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

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.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the A-iPower SUA2301i's package also includes these accessories: battery charging cables, funnel, RV adapter, oil and tool kit.

The A-iPower SUA2301i versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SUA2301i compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • Regarding its weight, the A-iPower SUA2301i only weighs in at 42.2 pounds, which means it's one of the lighter inverter generators in the 1500-2500 rated wattage range. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Genmax GM2000i with only 34.2 pounds.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 52 dBA, this inverter generator is one of the quieter devices of similar type and power. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Honda EU2200i with only 48 dBA.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the SUA2301i can run for up to 9 hours at a 25% load, aligning it with the lower performers in its type and power range. If wyou wish to prioritize autonomy, the DuroMax XP2300iH shines as one of the top contenders, offering one of the highest run times among generators with similar power output, totaling 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. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the more fuel-efficient of the products in the above-mentioned wattage range. 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.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the A-iPower SUA2301i is on the average side of the price range.

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