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:

  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Energizer eZV3200RV houses a 208 cc Energizer OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 2800W along with a peak wattage of 3200W.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a conversation at home). Its starting mechanisms include a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). The eZV3200RV can also be remotely started, offering further convenience (key fob included).

The fuel capacity of 1.95 gallon allows the eZV3200RV to operate for up to 15.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.13 GPH).

The eZV3200RV produces a clean sine wave: thanks to a <2% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), your sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets. 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

Additionally, it features 3 DC outlets: there's a 12V 5A receptacle with which you may charge your batteries with ease and two 5V USB ports with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

With its TT-30R receptacle (TT as in 'Travel Trailer'), this Energizer generator is RV Ready.

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.

The eZV3200RV's dry weight of 96 lbs lets you use its power anywhere needed. In addition, with its wheel kit and its folding handle, it may be shifted with ease, once placed the floor.

Features

The eZV3200RV's control panel

To help you monitor the eZV3200RV'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, some light indicators allow you to instantly see if the generator is ready, the generator is on overload and the oil level is too low.

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

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.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Energizer eZV3200RV, the following accessories are also included: key fob, funnel and tool kit.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV3200RV 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 and thus, may be used 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 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 generators able to produce between 2500 and 3500 rated watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the WEN GN400i, standing at just 66.1 lbs.
  • With a lowest noise rating of 52 dBA, the inverter generator is one of the more quiet of the generators 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.
  • 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 power range. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Champion 200954, reaching 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. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.13 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the most 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 eZV3200RV is on the average side of the price range.

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