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

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed, including 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. Moreover, since it is parallel capable (INVEZVPLKIT (opens in a new tab) not included), its power may be doubled if linked to a second compatible unit.

With a noise rating of 50 dBA (just as noisy as a refrigerator), the inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism.

With a fuel capacity of 0.9 gallon, the eZV2200P may run for up to 11.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.08 GPH).

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

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Additionally, it features 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

The Energizer eZV2200P's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L20.1 x W11 x H17.7 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

Since the eZV2200P weighs only 44 lbs, it can be labeled as a portable lightweight generator. 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 eZV2200P

The eZV2200P's control panel

Several light indicators serve to show you when its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is ready and the generator is on overload.

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

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Energizer eZV2200P also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit, battery charging cables and funnel.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV2200P 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, so it is adequate for use 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).

  • Regarding its weight, the Energizer eZV2200P only weighs in at 44 pounds, which means it's one of the lighter inverter generators in the 1500-2500 rated wattage range. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Genmax GM2000i, with a dry weight of just 34.2 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 type and 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.
  • Since the eZV2200P boasts with a run time of up to 11.5 hours at 25% load, it can be safely judged as a device of a higher run time than most inverter generators of a comparable output. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the DuroMax XP2300iH, as it provides up to 13 hours.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank's capacity and thus, doesn't say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. 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 these interactive charts, 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
