Description

The all-new Energizer eZV7500 is a fuel-efficient, portable inverter generator powered by a massive 420cc engine with EFI and class-leading inverter technology. This powerful portable generator produces 7500 surge watts and 6,500 rated watts of clean energy free of voltage spikes making it safe to power and charge laptops, cell phones, monitors, tablets and other sensitive electronics. The eZV7500 is one of the first generators on the market to offer electronic fuel injection (EFI); this constantly monitors and optimizes the engine’s air-to-fuel ratio in real-time, increases fuel efficiency, reduces emissions, and simplifies use.

Zoom on the Energizer eZV7500

In summary, the Energizer eZV7500 is a powerful portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • 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 who wish to upgrade their experience to another level

The subsequent sections will explore in detail its power characteristics, the diverse outlets it provides, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it offers.

Power & Run Time

The Energizer eZV7500 in use

The Energizer eZV7500

The Energizer eZV7500's design includes a gasoline-fueled 420 cc Energizer OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120/240V output, it gives a running wattage of 6,500W and also a peak wattage of 7,500W.

The inverter generator features a manual recoil starter system and also a no-fuss and convenient electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a noise of 76 dBA (less noisy than a shower).

The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system enhances the engine's reliability, lowers fuel consumption, improves startup, reduces servicing, boosts stale fuel resistance, and offers better altitude adaptability.

The eZV7500's fuel tank, boasting 5.5 gallons, allows it to operate for up to 15.5 hours with a full tank (with an estimated fuel consumption of 0.35 GPH).

The eZV7500 generates a clean sine wave: providing <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (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 provides the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle

For RV owners with a 50-amp service, this Energizer unit is RV-ready, boasting a 14-50R outlet. In addition, as it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the eZV7500 is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household.

Portability

At L28 x W28.1 x H30 in, the standard open frame design of the Energizer eZV7500 delivers stability alongside easy maintenance access to components and good air cooling. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

With a weight of 190 lbs, the generator is still labeled as 'portable,' denoting its ability to be moved, although its heaviness might restrict easy portability. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its set of wheels and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

Panel of the Energizer eZV7500

The eZV7500's control panel

The control panel of the eZV7500 is equipped with a convenient meter, displaying voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours information, aiding in monitoring its status and activity.

In addition to this info, the device’s light indicators will display if its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is overloaded and the generator is ready.

Benefiting from its built-in fuel gauge, the inverter generator allows for easy and immediate gas level inspections.

Regarding security, the generator comes with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, providing peace of mind during operation.

In addition to the traditional documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to help you get started promptly, the Energizer eZV7500 also includes several accessories: tool kit and funnel.

The Energizer eZV7500 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Energizer eZV7500 compare to generators of similar power (between 6000 and 7000 W).

  • At a weight of 190 pounds, the Energizer eZV7500 places in the expected weight range of the generators in the 6000-7000 rated wattage range. Weight-conscious users may find the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO appealing, as it is one of the top contenders in this power range, weighing just 118 pounds.
  • Among the generators of a comparable running wattage, this inverter generator with a lowest noise of 76 dBA can be judged as noisy. If you'd like a less noisy alternative, the Powerhorse 7500i is a strong contender. It boasts a noise rating of 55 dBA, placing it among the quietest generators in its power category.
  • With a runtime of up to 15.5 hours under a 25% load on a full tank, the eZV7500 falls within the average autonomy range among the generators of a similar power. If run time is one of your main concerns, the DuroMax XP8500EH could be worth looking at. It boasts one of the highest run times among units of comparable power, lasting up to 25 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. Among generators of similar power, this inverter generator stands out with a better fuel efficiency than most, with consumption rates around 0.35 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the DuroMax XP7500DX. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.29 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 6000-7000W inverter generators, the Energizer eZV7500 is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it would most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

    We bought one of these as a backup unit in case of extended power outage. Initially it started and ran, although I never gave it a large load test, just checked that it would run power tools. 1 year later, I thought I would give it a check, as it had never been used since the initial 10 minute test. I wouldn’t start! I found a 4 amp fuse had blown, where the the electrical schematic showed should have been a 10 amp fuse. When I got the engine running, it showed a power generation fault. The 1 year labour warranty had expired, but was still covered for parts. The distributor suggested a local repair business to take it to. It has been one thing after another (major parts unavailability etc), and the small engine repair shop is now recommending a complete replacement of the generator. The distributor has not agreed to this yet. It has been at the repair shop for 4 months now. If there is an upside, it would be that we have not had any significant power outages in the meantime. I don’t think I would recommend this unit.

    + PROS:
    • I paid quite a bit extra to get fuel injection and inverter power offered on this model, compared to an equivalent standard generator.
    - CONS:
    • Total non-performance.
