Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP16000iH in use

The DuroMax XP16000iH

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the DuroMax XP16000iH delivers 120/240V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 13,000W and a peak wattage of 16,000W. When propane-powered, it has 12,350 rated watts and 15,200 peak watts. The impressive running wattage makes this unit the biggest inverter generator currently on the market. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (parallel kit not included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

With a noise rating of 67 dBA (less noisy than background music), the inverter generator features a convenient and efficient electric starter (battery included). The XP16000iH can also be remotely started, offering further convenience (key fob included).

In terms of its run time capability, the XP16000iH, furnished with a 10.6 gallons fuel tank, can maintain operations for around 10.5 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (with fuel consumption averaging 1.01 gallons per hour). It also provides around 3 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 1.57 GPH) of operation with propane.

The <5% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of the XP16000iH ensures a clean sine wave output, providing a secure power source for your sensitive electronics through its AC outlets.


The control panel features the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

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

The unit features an ATS plug, which makes it compatible with automatic transfer switches.


As an inverter generator, the DuroMax XP16000iH showcases a closed design (L38.3 x W30.8 x H34.4 in), enhancing aesthetics and ensuring quieter operation compared to conventional, open frame models. The design follows the contemporary trends and is perfect for recreationally generating power.

With a weight of 368 lbs, the generator is still labeled as 'portable,' denoting its ability to be moved, although its heaviness might restrict easy portability. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its set of 4 wheels (⌀7") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

The XP16000iH's control panel

Monitoring of the XP16000iH's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the lifetime run hours, power output, frequency and voltage and is one of the features of its control panel.

In addition to this info, the device's light indicators will illuminate to indicate if the oil level is too low, the generator is on overload and the generator is ready.

With its built-in fuel gauge, the inverter generator provides quick and convenient gas level checks.

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind.

The XP16000iH 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.

In addition to the traditional documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to help you get started promptly, the DuroMax XP16000iH also includes several accessories: key fob, battery charger, tool kit, propane hose and funnel.

The DuroMax XP16000iH versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP16000iH compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 10000 and 14000 W).

  • At 368 lbs, the DuroMax XP16000iH stands out as one of the heavier dual fuel generators rated from 10000 to 14000. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Pulsar PG13000BRCO, with a dry weight of just 231 pounds.
  • With a lowest noise rating of 67 dBA, the inverter generator is one of the most quiet of the generators of similar type and power.
  • Since the XP16000iH boasts with a run time of around 10.5 hours at 50% load, it can be safely judged as a device of a higher run time than most dual fuel generators of a comparable output. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the DuroMax XP15000HX, as it provides around 12 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. This inverter generator, with an estimated fuel consumption of just 1.01 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, is one of the more fuel-efficient generators, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If you're placing a high priority on fuel consumption, the Westinghouse WGen12000DF, with a low fuel consumption rate of 0.95 GPH, could be an option to consider.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 10000-14000W generators, the DuroMax XP16000iH is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it would most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
