Description

The Energizer eZV3200P is a fuel-efficient, portable inverter generator powered by an ultra-quiet engine and class-leading inverter technology. It includes premium features such as remote and electric start, a digital multi-function display, automatic throttle, automatic choke, integrated folding handle and wheel kit, threadless metal fuel cap, and covered outlets. Producing a continuous 2,800 watts of clean electricity at 3600rpm, the eZV3200P quietly powers common and sensitive electronics during camping trips, tailgating, hunting, traveling, and jobs around the house or workplace. The integrated twist lock outputs 120V at 23.3A, perfect for powering RVs, trailers, and your home in an emergency. A newly designed single-outlet parallel port makes connecting two eZV-series generators easy, allowing you to combine the power of two generators into a single output. At only 52-60 decibels the eZV3200P is so quiet you’ll have to hear it to believe it. (source: Energizer (opens in a new tab))

Power & Run Time

The Energizer eZV3200P in use

The Energizer eZV3200P

The Energizer eZV3200P's engine, 208 cc Energizer OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120V. It provides a running wattage of 2800W and reaches a peak wattage of 3200W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (eZV parallel kit not included), this power can be doubled when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

With a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than rainfall), the inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). Moreover, to offer you even more convenience, the eZV3200P can also be remotely started (key fob included).

With a fuel capacity of 1.95 gallon, the eZV3200P may run for up to 15.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.13 GPH).

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the eZV3200P 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 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle

It also sports 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 5A receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy.

This Energizer generator isn't quite RV Ready, but it features an L5-30R receptacle, allowing a simple RV connection through an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.

Portability

Since the Energizer eZV3200P is an inverter generator, its closed design (L22.8 x W16.7 x H17.5 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

With a dry weight of 96 lbs, the eZV3200P can easily follow you wherever your power needs are. In addition, with its wheel kit and its folding handle, it may be shifted with ease, once placed the floor.

Features

Panel of the Energizer eZV3200P

The eZV3200P's control panel

To help you monitor the eZV3200P's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

In addition to this info, several light indicators serve to show you when the generator is ready, the oil level is too low and the generator is on overload.

The fuel level of the inverter generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

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.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Energizer eZV3200P, the following accessories are also included: tool kit, key fob, battery charging cables and funnel.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV3200P 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, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

The Energizer eZV3200P versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Energizer eZV3200P compare to generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • As its weight is 96 pounds, the Energizer eZV3200P falls in the expected weight range of the devices in the 2500-3500 rated wattage category. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the WEN GN400i, weighing just 66.1 pounds.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 52 dBA, this inverter generator is one of the quieter devices of 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 EU3000iS, whose lowest noise levels reach just 50 dBA.
  • Since the eZV3200P boasts with a run time of up to 15.5 hours at 25% load, it can be safely judged as a device of a higher run time than most 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 Champion 200954, as it provides up to 22 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 0.13 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 2500-3500W generators, the Energizer eZV3200P is on the average side of the price range.

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