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.

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

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 information.

Power & Run Time

The Energizer eZV2000S in use

The Energizer eZV2000S

The Energizer eZV2000S houses a 79 cc (2.7 hp) Energizer OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 1600W along with a peak wattage of 2000W.

Enjoying a noise rating of 50 dBA (just as noisy as a conversation at home), this inverter generator gets running thanks to a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

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

The eZV2000S generates a clean sine wave: providing <2% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its AC outlets safely. 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 features the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Additionally, it features 3 DC outlets: there's a 12V 5A receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy and two 5V USB ports with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

Portability

The Energizer eZV2000S is an inverter generator and has an encased design of the following dimensions: L20.1 x W11 x H17.7 in. Thus, it is more aesthetical than conventional, open frame products. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

Weighing just 44 lbs, the eZV2000S can be considered a lightweight portable generator. The device can be easily moved by just one person and thus, its power may be enjoyed on-the-go. This convenience is further enhanced thanks to its handle (molded in the case) that allows you to carry it with ease.

Features

Panel of the Energizer eZV2000S

The eZV2000S's control panel

When its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is overloaded and the generator is ready, 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.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the Energizer eZV2000S also comes with some accessories: funnel and tool kit are included.

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, making it usable in forested areas.

Product Video

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).

  • As far as its dry weight is concerned, the Energizer eZV2000S weighs just 44 pounds and thus, it is one of the lighter 1500 to 2500 rated wattage generators. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Champion 200949 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 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 up to 11.5 hours with a full tank and at 25% load, it is placed within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Westinghouse WGen2000, which is able to run for 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. This inverter generator, with an estimated fuel consumption of just 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, is one of the most fuel efficient generators, for the previously mentioned wattage range.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive 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.
