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:

  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • 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 who wish to upgrade their experience to another level

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 eZV3200RV 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.

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 simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). 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).

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the eZV3200RV generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <2% Total Harmonic Distortion (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 (TT-30R) receptacle

Furthermore, it has 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 charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

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. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

As the eZV3200RV's weight is only 96 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. Furthermore, once placed on the floor, effortless displacement is possible thanks to its set of 2 wheels and its folding handle.

The eZV3200RV's control panel

The eZV3200RV's control center features a convenient meter, which displays 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 generator is ready, the oil level is too low and the generator is on overload.

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

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: tool kit, key fob and funnel.

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 and therefore, can 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 inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • Since the generator weighs in at a dry weight of 96 lbs, the Energizer eZV3200RV belongs in the expected weight range for inverters which can produce between 2500 and 3500 rated watts. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Genmax GM3300i, with a dry weight of only 47.4 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.
  • As the eZV3200RV 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 inverter 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 200914, 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. 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 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.
