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 in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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's core is the 208 cc Energizer OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120V, it provides a running wattage of 2800W and a peak wattage of 3200W. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (eZV parallel kit not included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

At a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than rainfall), this inverter generator can be started via a conventional pull-start mechanism, or 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).

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

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

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

Even though this Energizer generator isn't quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle allows an easy RV connection via 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. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

With a dry weight of 96 lbs, the eZV3200P can easily follow you wherever your power needs are. Moreover, once it’s on the ground, a wheel kit and a folding handle will allow you to displace it without effort.

Features

Panel of the Energizer eZV3200P

The eZV3200P's control panel

The eZV3200P's status and activity may be monitored conveniently via the control panel, as it features a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

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.

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.

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.

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. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and thus, may be used 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).

  • 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. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above mentioned power range is the WEN GN400i, with a dry weight of 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 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.
  • With a run time of up to 15.5 hours at 25% load, the eZV3200P has one of the higher run times, compared to its similarly powerful peers. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Honda EU3000iS, boasting with up to 20 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. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.13 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the more fuel efficient of the products in the above-mentioned 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.
