Awesome features like 48hr timeout, 100ft range, auto choke, auto-throttle make this luxurious dream a reality.

Zoom on the Energizer eZV3500P

In a nutshell, the Energizer eZV3500P is a quiet and compact portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go

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 eZV3500P's core is the 212 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120V, it provides a running wattage of 3000W and a peak wattage of 3500W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (parallel kit not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

Enjoying a noise rating of 57 dBA (less noisy than a refrigerator), this inverter generator can be started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also to a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). Moreover, to offer you even more convenience, the eZV3500P can also be remotely started (key fob included).

With a fuel capacity of 1.95 gallon, the eZV3500P 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 eZV3500P generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <3% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle

In addition, it provides 3 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports allowing you to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets and a 12V 5A receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy.

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

Thanks to its closed inverter generator design (L22.8 x W16.7 x H17.5 in), the Energizer eZV3500P, is more esthetical than a typical, open frame generator. The design follows the contemporary trends and is perfect for recreationally generating power.

The eZV3500P can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 96 lbs. Moreover, once it’s on the ground, its set of 2 wheels and its folding handle will allow you to shift it without effort.

Features

Panel of the Energizer eZV3500P

The eZV3500P's control panel

Monitoring of the eZV3500P's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the lifetime run hours and is one of the features of its control panel.

In addition to this info, when its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is on overload and the generator is ready, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the inverter generator.

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.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Energizer eZV3500P's package also includes these accessories: battery charging cables, funnel, tool kit and key fob.

Emissions

The Energizer eZV3500P 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, making it usable in forested areas.

The Energizer eZV3500P versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Energizer eZV3500P compare to generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 96 pounds, the Energizer eZV3500P finds itself in the expected weight range for generators able to 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 Generac GP3300i, with a dry weight of just 59.5 pounds.
  • As its lowest possible noise is rated at 57 dBA, this inverter generator qualifies as one of the more quiet of the products of 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.
  • The eZV3500P, falls within the average autonomy range compared to generators of a roughly same power, with a run time of up to 15.5 hours at a 25% load and a full tank. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Champion 200954, boasting with up to 22 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. 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 eZV3500P is on the average side of the price range.

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