Description

Zoom on the DuroMax XP11000iH

In a nutshell, the DuroMax XP11000iH is a powerful portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • Small homeowners in search of a full power backup solution
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

Over the following sections, you'll uncover its power characteristics, the selection of outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it includes.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP11000iH in use

The DuroMax XP11000iH

With its dual-fuel technology, the DuroMax XP11000iH delivers 120/240V, and offers power and flexibility. Running on gasoline, it boasts a running wattage of 9,000W and a peak wattage of 11,000W. When powered by propane, it delivers 8,550 running watts and 10,450 peak watts. The impressive running wattage makes this unit one of the biggest inverter generators currently on the market. Furthermore, its parallel capability (parallel kit not included) allows power output to increase when connected to another similar or compatible unit, ensuring expanded energy capacity and reliability for various applications.

Featuring a noise rating of 61 dBA (just slightly more noisy than an office), the inverter generator is equipped with both a conventional pull-start mechanism and a no-fuss and convenient electric starter (battery included) for starting. To add further convenience, the XP11000iH can be remotely started (key fob included).

The running time of the XP11000iH, with its 7.1 gallons fuel capacity, can reach up to 18 hours on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.39 GPH). With propane, it can reach up to 8 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.59 GPH).

With a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the XP11000iH delivers a clean sine wave—essential for safeguarding your delicate electronics when plugged into its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

It also sports 1 DC outlet: there's a 45-52V 10A output to charge your home backup Li-ion batteries.

If your RV requires a 50-amp service, consider this DuroMax unit RV-ready, as it includes a 14-50R outlet. In addition, because the XP11000iH is equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it can power your home during a power outage, as it can be easily connected to your breaker box to power your household.

Portability

As an inverter generator, the DuroMax XP11000iH showcases a closed design (L26.2 x W25 x H29.6 in), enhancing aesthetics and ensuring quieter operation compared to conventional, open frame models. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

Despite its 216 lbs, the generator falls under the category of 'portable,' signifying its movability, although its weight may hinder easy portability. Nevertheless, thanks to its set of wheels (⌀8.5") and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

The XP11000iH's control panel

For easy status and activity monitoring of the XP11000iH, its control panel integrates a digital data center, offering insights into the lifetime run hours, voltage, frequency and power output.

In addition to this info, light indicators on the device will notify you if its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is overloaded and the generator is ready.

The fuel level of the inverter generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, giving you a peace of mind during use.

The XP11000iH also benefits from DuroMax’s CO Alert carbon monoxide shutdown. If CO levels become unsafe or rapidly increase, the generator will automatically shut down, an indicator will light red, and the engine will not restart for 5 minutes.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the DuroMax XP11000iH also comes with several accessories, including: battery charger, key fob, tool kit, battery charging cables, funnel and propane hose.

The DuroMax XP11000iH versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP11000iH compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 8500 and 9500 W).

  • At a weight of 216 pounds, the DuroMax XP11000iH places in the expected weight range of the dual fuel generators in the 8500-9500 rated wattage range. If weight is an important consideration for you, the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc stands out as one of the top contenders in this power category, with a dry weight of 187.4 pounds.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 61 dBA, it can be considered as one of the most quiet of the products generating similar power.
  • The XP11000iH, falls within the average autonomy range compared to dual fuel generators of a roughly same power, with a run time of up to 18 hours at a 25% load and a full tank. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the DuroMax XP10000DX, reaching up to 22 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.39 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is a rather fuel-efficient one within its wattage category. If you wish to get a unit of similar power, but with one of the best fuel efficiency, you could consider the DuroMax XP10000DX, which has an impressively low fuel consumption of 0.38 GPH.
