Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP9500iH in use

The DuroMax XP9500iH

The dual-fuel technology of the DuroMax XP9500iH allows for an output of 120/240V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 7,600W and a starting wattage of 9,500W. If propane-powered, it gives 7,200 rated watts and 9,025 starting watts. Furthermore, its parallel capability (parallel kit not included) allows for increasing of power output when connected to another similar or compatible unit, ensuring expanded energy capacity and reliability for various applications.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 61 dBA (just slightly more noisy than background music). Its starting mechanisms include a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and a user-friendly and hassle-free electric starter (battery included). The XP9500iH can also be remotely started, offering further convenience (key fob included).

The XP9500iH, with a fuel capacity of 7.1 gallons, reaches a run time of up to 21 hours utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.34 GPH). Alternatively, it can reach a run time of up to 9.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.49 GPH) with propane.

Thanks to its low <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the XP9500iH produces a clean sine wave output, making it safe for your sensitive electronics when utilizing the AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

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

With its 14-50R outlet, this DuroMax unit is RV-ready for owners with a 50-amp service in their RVs. In addition, the XP9500iH's twist-lock L14-30R receptacle makes it transfer switch ready, enabling hassle-free connection to your breaker box for powering your home during outages.

Portability

With its enclosed inverter generator design (L26.2 x W25 x H29.6 in), the DuroMax XP9500iH offers superior aesthetics and operates with minimized noise levels, distinguishing itself from standard, open frame generators. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

With a weight of 216 lbs, the generator is still labeled as 'portable,' denoting its ability to be moved, although its heaviness might restrict easy portability. However, the limited maneuverability is remedied with its set of wheels (⌀8.5") and its folding handle, facilitating convenient shifting once the generator is positioned on the ground.

Features

The XP9500iH's control panel

A digital data center, one of the features of the XP9500iH's control panel, gives you information on the lifetime run hours, power output, voltage and frequency, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

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

Equipped with a built-in fuel gauge, the inverter generator facilitates swift 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 XP9500iH 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.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the DuroMax XP9500iH also is packed along with the following accessories: battery charger, key fob, tool kit, propane hose and funnel.

The DuroMax XP9500iH versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP9500iH compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • At a weight of 216 pounds, the DuroMax XP9500iH places in the expected weight range of the dual fuel generators in the 7500-8500 rated wattage range. if you wish to prioritize weight, the Cummins Onan P9500df is one of the top contenders in its power category, weighing only 194 pounds.
  • Rated at a lowest possible noise level of 61 dBA, this inverter generator positions itself amongst the most quiet of the products of similar type and power.
  • In terms of run time, the XP9500iH surpasses similarly powerful dual fuel devices, boasting one of the higher run times at up to 21 hours. For those prioritizing autonomy, the DuroMax XP10000DX could be considered, as it offers one of the longest run times among generators with similar power output, reaching up to 22 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. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.34 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is one of the most fuel-efficient units within its wattage category.
