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 summary, the Energizer eZV2000S is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

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

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Energizer eZV2000S in use

The Energizer eZV2000S

The Energizer eZV2000S is powered by a 79 cc (2.7 hp) Energizer OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 1600W as well as a peak wattage of 2000W.

At a noise rating of 50 dBA (just as noisy as rainfall), the inverter generator offers the possibility to start the device via a simple traditional 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.

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the eZV2000S generates a clean sine wave, reaching 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.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

In addition, it provides 3 DC outlets: there's a 12V 5A receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy and two 5V USB ports with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

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. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

Labeled a lightweight portable generator, the eZV2000S weighs just 44 lbs. As it can be moved by a single person without much effort, the generator and its power can be enjoyed on-the-go. A handle (molded in the case) allows you to carry it easily, further enhancing its convenience.

Features

The eZV2000S's control panel

When its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is ready and the generator is on overload, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

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.

Along the basic documentation and a user manual, useful for starting the generator right away, the Energizer eZV2000S's package also includes these accessories: tool kit and funnel.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV2000S is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and thus, may be used 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. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the WEN 56202i with only 38.6 pounds.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 50 dBA, this inverter generator is one of the quieter devices of similar power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Honda EU2200i, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 48 dBA.
  • As the eZV2000S offers up to 11.5 hours run time on a full tank at a 25% load, it falls within the average autonomy range among the generators of a similar power. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the Westinghouse WGen2000, with up to 26 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. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the more fuel efficient of the products in the above-mentioned wattage range.

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.
