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

  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • 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's engine, 79 cc (2.7 hp) Energizer OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120V. It provides a running wattage of 1600W and reaches a peak wattage of 2000W.

With a noise rating of 50 dBA (just as noisy as a conversation at home), the inverter generator features 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).

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 features the upcoming 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

It also sports 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. The design follows the contemporary trends and is perfect for recreationally generating power.

Weighing just 44 lbs, the eZV2000S can be considered a lightweight portable generator. The product’s power can be enjoyed on-the-go, as it can be moved by a single person without trouble. 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

Some light indicators allow you to instantly see if the generator is ready, the oil level is too low and the generator is overloaded.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), 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. It can therefore be sold and purchased in all 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and thus, may be used 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).

  • In terms of its dry weight, the Energizer eZV2000S stands at only 44 lbs, meaning that is one of the lighter devices of the 1500-2500 rated wattage category If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Champion 200949 with only 38.6 pounds.
  • 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 important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Honda EU2200i with only 48 dBA.
  • Offering up to 11.5 hours of running time on a full tank at 25% load, the eZV2000S is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. 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.
  • 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 can be considered as one of the most fuel efficient, due to its low estimated fuel consumption of only 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, within the aforementioned 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.
