Description

The Energizer eZV2000S is a fuel-efficient, portable inverter generator powered by an ultra-quiet engine and class-leading dual wave inverter technology. With a continuous 1,600 watts of clean electricity, you can quietly power common and sensitive electronics during camping trips, tailgating, hunting, traveling, and jobs around the house or workplace. Transport is a breeze at a light weight of only 44lbs. Operating at a volume of 50-59 decibels, the eZV2000S is so quiet you’ll have to hear it to believe it. (source: Energizer)

Zoom on the Energizer eZV2000S

In a nutshell, the Energizer eZV2000S is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go

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 parameters.

Power & Run Time

The Energizer eZV2000S in use

The Energizer eZV2000S

The Energizer eZV2000S's build contains a gasoline-fueled 79 cc (2.7 hp) Energizer OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120V output, it gives a running wattage of 1600W and also a peak wattage of 2000W.

At a noise rating of 50 dBA (just as noisy as a refrigerator), the inverter generator offers the possibility to start the device via a conventional pull-start mechanism.

The eZV2000S can operate for up to 11.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.08 GPH), due to its fuel capacity of 0.9 gallon.

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the eZV2000S produces a clean sine wave, with a <2% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD). This low THD is achieved thanks to Energizer’s Dual Wave Technology, which controls both voltage and current for a pure sine wave output, under any load.

Here are a few examples of what this generator could allow you to simultaneously power:Note: The above mentioned examples presume a maximum load of 75% and use wattage estimates. In addition, the items might not be able to start simultaneously. With our wattage calculator, you can predict if the product can fulfill your requirements.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Furthermore, it has 3 DC outlets: there's a 12V 5A receptacle with which you may charge your batteries with ease and two 5V USB ports allowing you to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

Portability

Since the Energizer eZV2000S is an inverter generator, its closed design (L20.1 x W11 x H17.7 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

Labeled a lightweight portable generator, the eZV2000S weighs just 44 lbs. The generator can be moved with ease by only one person and so it can be enjoyed on-the-go. In addition, a handle (molded in the case) lets you carry it easily and further increases its convenience.

The light indicators show you if the generator is on overload, the oil level is too low and the generator is ready.

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.

Apart from the typical documentation and a user manual, which lets you start it right away, the Energizer eZV2000S also is packed along with the following accessories: funnel and tool kit.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV2000S 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 Energizer eZV2000S versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Energizer eZV2000S compare to generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • Weight-wise, the Energizer eZV2000S has only 44 lbs, which renders it one of the lighter generators which produce 1500 to 2500 rated watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the WEN 56202i, standing at just 38.6 lbs.
  • As its lowest possible noise is rated at 50 dBA, this inverter generator qualifies as one of the more quiet of the products of similar power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU2200i, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 48 dBA.
  • Given that the eZV2000S reaches an autonomy of 11.5 hours with a full tank and at 25% load, it is placed within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Westinghouse WGen2000, boasting with 26 hours.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. This inverter generator is one of the more fuel efficient models of the aforementioned output range, as its estimated fuel consumption reaches just 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other 1500-2500W generators, the Energizer eZV2000S is on the average side of the price range.

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