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))

Zoom on the Energizer eZV3200P

In a nutshell, the Energizer eZV3200P is a quiet and compact portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level

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 eZV3200P in use

The Energizer eZV3200P

The Energizer eZV3200P is powered by a 208 cc Energizer OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 2800W as well as a peak wattage of 3200W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (eZV parallel kit not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

With a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a conversation at home), the inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). For additional convenience, the eZV3200P may also be remotely started (key fob included).

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

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the eZV3200P produces a clean sine wave, with 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 following 3 AC outlets:

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

Additionally, it features 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 5A receptacle with which you may charge your batteries with ease.

This Energizer generator features an L5-30R receptacle, enabling an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. However, it is still not quite RV ready.

Portability

Thanks to its closed inverter generator design (L22.8 x W16.7 x H17.5 in), the Energizer eZV3200P, is more esthetical than a typical, open frame generator. The design follows the contemporary trends and is perfect for recreationally generating power.

The eZV3200P can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 96 lbs. Additionally, it can be easily moved with the help of its set of 2 wheels and its folding handle, once it is on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Energizer eZV3200P

The eZV3200P's control panel

The control panel of the eZV3200P includes a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, some light indicators allow you to instantly see if the generator is overloaded, its oil levels are insufficient and the generator is ready.

Thanks to a built-in fuel gauge, the inverter generator allows you to quickly, conveniently and easily check the gas level at a glance.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), giving you a peace of mind during use.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Energizer eZV3200P also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit, funnel, key fob and battery charging cables.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV3200P 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, making it usable in forested areas.

Product Videos

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).

  • Since the generator weighs in at a dry weight of 96 lbs, the Energizer eZV3200P belongs in the expected weight range for devices which can produce between 2500 and 3500 rated watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Generac GP3300i, standing at just 59.5 lbs.
  • As its lowest possible noise is rated at 52 dBA, this inverter generator qualifies as one of the more quiet of the products of similar power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Honda EU3000iS, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 50 dBA.
  • As the eZV3200P offers up to 15.5 hours run time on a full tank at a 25% load, it falls within the average autonomy range among the generators of a similar power. 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 Champion 200954, with up to 22 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.13 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 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.
