Description

Zoom on the Energizer eZV2200P

In a nutshell, the Energizer eZV2200P is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • 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 eZV2200P houses a 80 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 1,700W along with a peak wattage of 2,200W. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (INVEZVPLKIT (opens in a new tab) not included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

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

With a full tank, the eZV2200P can operate for up to 11.5 hours (fuel consumption around 0.08 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 0.9 gallon.

As the eZV2200P produces a clean sine wave, with a <2% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

It also sports 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 eZV2200P 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.

The eZV2200P is a lightweight, portable generator, as it only weighs 44 lbs. The product’s power can be enjoyed on-the-go, as it can be moved by a single person without trouble. Its handle (molded in the case) allows you to carry it easily, further enhancing its convenience.

Features

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

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

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Energizer eZV2200P, the following accessories are also included: tool kit, battery charging cables and funnel.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV2200P 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 and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

The Energizer eZV2200P versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Energizer eZV2200P compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • Weight-wise, the Energizer eZV2200P has only 44 lbs, which renders it one of the lighter inverter generators which produce 1500 to 2500 rated watts. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Genmax GM2000i, with a dry weight of only 34.2 lbs.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 50 dBA, it can be considered as one of the more quiet of the products generating 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.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of up to 11.5 hours at 25% load, the eZV2200P benefits from a higher run time than many inverter generators of a similar output. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the DuroMax XP2300iH, reaching up to 13 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. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is one of the most fuel efficient units within its wattage category.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the Energizer eZV2200P is on the average side of the price range.

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

Will this run a compound miter saw? (Ryobi 12 in.; 120 v, 60 Hz, 15 amps) (Asked July 25, 2021)

It won't. 120V*15A=1800W, which is over the 1700 running watts of this unit.

    Generator ran perfectly for approximately 40 hrs. Changed oil after second tank of fuel. Put fuel stabilizer in fuel & didn’t use it for the summer. Starting using it in November to run lights in ice fishing shack. Ran fine for 2 tanks of fuel then engine started to surge. Changed spark plug , added sea foam to fuel, removed & cleaned carburetor & still runs like garbage. I was told by support centre that I need to take it to repair shop & as the unit is 13 months old warranty will cover parts not labour. Garbage !! Get what you pay for. More reputable products like Honda are considerably more expensive but last for years. Absolutely do not recommend.

    + PROS:
    • Inexpensive
    - CONS:
    • Product doesn’t last & service sucks
