Description

The Energizer eZV3200RV 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 3,000 watts of clean electricity at 3600rpm, the eZV3200RV quietly powers common and sensitive electronics during camping trips, tailgating, hunting, traveling, and jobs around the house or workplace. The integrated 30A RV outlet outputs 120V at 25A, perfect for powering RVs, trailers, and your home in an emergency. At only 52-60 decibels the eZV3200RV is so quiet you’ll have to hear it to believe it. (source: Energizer (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Energizer eZV3200RV

In a nutshell, the Energizer eZV3200RV is a quiet and compact portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • Amateur DIY lovers
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • 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 eZV3200RV'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 2,800W and a peak wattage of 3,200W.

The inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism and also a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a noise of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a conversation at home). Moreover, to offer you even more convenience, the eZV3200RV can also be remotely started (key fob included).

With a fuel capacity of 1.95 gallon, the eZV3200RV may run for up to 15.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.13 GPH).

As the eZV3200RV produces a clean sine wave, with a <2% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the 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 (TT-30R) receptacle

It also sports 3 DC outlets: there's a 12V 5A receptacle allowing you to easily charge your batteries and two 5V USB ports with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

This Energizer generator is RV Ready, as it features a TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer').

Portability

As the Energizer eZV3200RV is an inverter generator, its encased design (L22.8 x W16.7 x H17.5 in) offers more aesthetics than a conventional, open frame product. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

As the eZV3200RV's weight is only 96 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. 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

The eZV3200RV's control panel

The eZV3200RV and its control panel include a convenient meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours. This feature comes handy when monitoring its status and activity.

In addition to this info, when the oil level is too low, the generator is overloaded and the generator is ready, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

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

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Energizer eZV3200RV's package also includes these accessories: key fob, funnel and tool kit.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV3200RV 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, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

The Energizer eZV3200RV versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Energizer eZV3200RV compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 96 pounds, the Energizer eZV3200RV finds itself in the expected weight range for inverter generators able to produce between 2500 and 3500 rated watts. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO, weighing just 46 pounds.
  • 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. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Honda EU3000iS. With just 50 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • As the eZV3200RV features an autonomy of up to 15.5 hours at 25% load, it has a higher run time than an average generator of its type and power range. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Champion 200914, as it provides up to 22 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. 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 these interactive charts, when compared to other 2500-3500W inverter generators, the Energizer eZV3200RV is on the average side of the price range.

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