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 buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • Amateur DIY lovers

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 design includes 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 quiet suburb), the inverter generator is started via 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).

As the eZV2000S produces a clean sine wave, with a <2% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the 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 includes the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

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

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. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

Labeled a lightweight portable generator, the eZV2000S weighs just 44 lbs. A single person should not have any problems moving it around and thus, enjoy power availability on-the-go. Its handle (molded in the case) allows you to carry it easily, further enhancing its convenience.

Features

Panel of the Energizer eZV2000S

The eZV2000S's control panel

Some light indicators allow you to instantly see if the generator is on overload, its oil levels are insufficient and the generator is ready.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Energizer eZV2000S, the following accessories are also included: tool kit and funnel.

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 therefore, can 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.
  • With a lowest possible noise of 50 dBA, this inverter generator places itself amongst the more quiet of the products delivering similar power. If you’d prefer a less noisy device, one of the most quiet devices, which share the same power range with this one, is the Honda EU2200i, whose lowest noise levels reach just 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 autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Westinghouse WGen2000, reaching 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. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the most fuel efficient of the products in the above-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.
