Description

Zoom on the A-iPower SUA4300i

In summary, the A-iPower SUA4300i is a compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • RV travellers looking for even more independence
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SUA4300i in use

The A-iPower SUA4300i

The A-iPower SUA4300i's design includes a gasoline-fueled 149 cc OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120V output, it gives a running wattage of 3,450W and also a peak wattage of 4,300W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (PK6000 parallel kit not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

Enjoying a noise rating of 62 dBA (just slightly more noisy than background music), this inverter generator gets running thanks to a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

With a fuel capacity of 1.6 gallon, the SUA4300i may run for up to 7.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.21 GPH).

As the SUA4300i produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

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

Furthermore, it has 3 DC outlets: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy and two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

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

Portability

Since the A-iPower SUA4300i is an inverter generator, its closed design (L22 x W14.4 x H20.3 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

The SUA4300i can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 52.9 lbs. Moreover, once it’s on the ground, its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle will allow you to shift it without effort.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower SUA4300i

The SUA4300i's control panel

A digital data center, one of the features of the SUA4300i's control panel, gives you information on the power output, frequency, fuel level, voltage and lifetime run hours, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status. To offer you even more control and easy operation during nighttime, the panel is LED-lit.

In addition to this info, some light indicators allow you to instantly see if its oil levels are insufficient and the generator is on overload.

From a security standpoint, the product offers an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

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.

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 SUA4300i, the following accessories are also included: oil, battery charging cables, tool kit, funnel and RV adapter.

Emissions

The A-iPower SUA4300i is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

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

The unit also meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

The A-iPower SUA4300i versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SUA4300i compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • In terms of its dry weight, the A-iPower SUA4300i stands at only 52.9 lbs, meaning that is one of the lighter inverters of the 2500-3500 rated wattage category In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO, standing at just 46 lbs.
  • As this inverter generator can emit noise as low as 62 dBA, it finds itself in the average expected noise for this kind of power. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Honda EU3000iS with only 50 dBA.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 7.5 hours on a full tank at a 25% load, the SUA4300i is on the low end when compared to other inverter generators of a similar power output. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Champion 200914, reaching up to 22 hours.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank's capacity and thus, doesn't say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. This inverter generator is somewhat less fuel efficient than devices of comparable output: its estimated fuel consumption reaches 0.21 GPH at a 25% load. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.13 GPH, the Energizer eZV3500P is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 2500-3500W inverter generators, the A-iPower SUA4300i is on the average side of the price range.

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