Description

Zoom on the Genmax GM3500iAED

In a nutshell, the Genmax GM3500iAED is a compact and lightweight portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Amateur DIY lovers
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience

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 Genmax GM3500iAED in use

The Genmax GM3500iAED

The dual-fuel technology of the Genmax GM3500iAED allows for an output of 120V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 3200W and a starting wattage of 3500W. If propane-powered, it gives 2800 rated watts and 3100 starting watts. Moreover, since it is parallel capable (parallel kit (opens in a new tab) not included), its power may be increased if linked to a second compatible unit.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 62 dBA (just slightly more noisy than an office). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). The GM3500iAED can also be remotely started, offering further convenience (key fob included).

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the GM3500iAED produces a clean sine wave, with 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

Additionally, it features 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

Even though this Genmax generator isn't quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle allows an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor (included).

Portability

As the Genmax GM3500iAED is an inverter generator, its encased design (L20.9 x W12.2 x H19.7 in) offers more aesthetics than a conventional, open frame product. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

With a dry weight of 56.2 lbs, the GM3500iAED can easily follow you wherever your power needs are. Furthermore, once placed on the floor, effortless displacement is possible thanks to its set of 2 wheels (⌀4") and its telecospic handle.

Features

Panel of the Genmax GM3500iAED

The GM3500iAED's control panel

Monitoring of the GM3500iAED's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the frequency, fuel level, power output, voltage and lifetime run hours and is one of the features of its control panel.

In addition to this info, several light indicators serve to show you when the oil level is too low, the generator is ready and the generator is overloaded.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), giving you a peace of mind during use.

It also benefits from Genmax's CO DETECT technology, which is designed to monitor the level of carbon monoxide present during the generator's operation. If the generator is positioned incorrectly and carbon monoxide levels rise to an unsafe level, the generator will automatically shut down. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Genmax GM3500iAED also comes with several accessories, including: funnel, RV adapter, key fob, tool kit and propane hose.

Emissions

The Genmax GM3500iAED is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

However, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

In addition, the unit meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

Product Videos

The Genmax GM3500iAED versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Genmax GM3500iAED compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • Weight-wise, the Genmax GM3500iAED has only 56.2 lbs, which renders it one of the lighter inverter generators which produce 2500 to 3500 rated watts. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Genmax GM3300i with only 47.4 pounds.
  • The inverter generator can be considered average in its noise for its type and power category, as it is rated at 62 dBA. 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.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 2500-3500W dual fuel inverter generators, the Genmax GM3500iAED is on the average side of the price range.

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

    Several quality control issues right out of the box and also a very dangerous flaw with this machine. I’ve done many reviews and helped re-engineer some. This had poor wire routings, engine shakes bad at idle, changing oil you have to tip to the side to drain. Doing so leaks gas out of the tank vent and it fills the air filter box with gas which then runs out back by a hot muffler…no kidding. GenMax offered a warning sticker to fix this dangerous flaw. These could be such good machines if they used quality parts and had parts and service in the USA. I highly can’t recommend at all.

    + PROS:
    • Quiet, full pannel, light weight.
    - CONS:
    • Leaks gas into air fitter box when changing oil, load display not accurate, engine shakes bad. Cheap parts used.
