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)

Zoom on the Energizer eZV3200P

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

  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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 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.

At a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a quiet suburb), this inverter generator can be started via a conventional pull-start mechanism, or a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). The eZV3200P can also be remotely started, offering further convenience. (key fob included).

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

The eZV3200P generates a clean sine wave: providing <2% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its 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 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 allowing you to easily charge your batteries.

While this Energizer generator is not RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle can be used for a simple RV connection with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.

Portability

The Energizer eZV3200P is an inverter generator and has an encased design of the following dimensions: L22.8 x W16.7 x H17.5 in. Thus, it is more aesthetical than conventional, open frame products. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

The eZV3200P can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 96 lbs. In addition, with a wheel kit and a folding handle, it may be displaced with ease, once placed the floor.

Features

The eZV3200P's control panel

The eZV3200P's control center features a convenient meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours to aid you with the monitoring of its status and activity.

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

The inverter generator allows for a quick, easy and convenient assessment of its gas level, as it is equipped with a built-in fuel gauge.

From a security standpoint, the product offers an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

Along the basic documentation and a user manual, useful for starting the generator right away, the Energizer eZV3200P's package also includes these accessories: funnel, battery charging cables, tool kit and key fob.

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, making it usable 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. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the WEN GN400i, with a dry weight of only 66.1 lbs.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 52 dBA, it can be considered as one of the more quiet of the products generating 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.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of up to 15.5 hours at 25% load, the eZV3200P benefits from a higher run time than many generators of a similar output. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Honda EU3000iS, as it provides up to 20 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. This inverter generator can be considered as 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 dynamic 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.
