Description

Zoom on the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC

In a few words, the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC is a compact and lightweight portable inverter generator perfectly suited for:

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • Occasional participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device.

Power & Run Time

The Genmax GM4600iAEFIC in use

The Genmax GM4600iAEFIC

With a 159 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC operates on gasoline, providing 120V, with a running wattage of 3,800W and a starting wattage of 4,600W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (GM6000SPK (opens in a new tab) not included), this power can be increased when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

Enjoying a noise rating of 63 dBA (just slightly more noisy than background music), this inverter generator offers the versatility of starting with either a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism or a practical and straightforward electric starter (battery included). Additionally, the GM4600iAEFIC features remote starting, offering users increased convenience (key fob included).

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.

With a full tank, the GM4600iAEFIC can operate for up to 9 hours (fuel consumption around 0.19 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 1.7 gallon.

Featuring a <5% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the GM4600iAEFIC delivers a clean sine wave, guaranteeing the safety of your sensitive electronics plugged into its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel is equipped with the following 3 AC outlets:

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

Furthermore, it showcases 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy. With the unit, you will also find a dual port USB adapter, allowing for the convenient charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets using the DC receptacle.

Thanks to its TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer'), this Genmax generator is RV Ready.

Portability

As the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC 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. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

As the GM4600iAEFIC's weight is only 58.4 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. Additionally, its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle will allow for simple relovation of the generator once it's on the ground.

Features

The GM4600iAEFIC's control panel

Designed with a digital data center, the control panel of the GM4600iAEFIC grants you access to crucial data on the fuel level, frequency, power output, voltage and lifetime run hours, ensuring practical monitoring of its status and activity. To offer you even more control and easy operation during nighttime, the panel is LED-lit.

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

From a security standpoint, the generator is furnished with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), ensuring peace of mind during operation.

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.

Apart from the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to facilitate setup, the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC features extra accessories: funnel, tool kit, dual port USB adapter, battery charger, key fob and oil.

Product Videos

The Genmax GM4600iAEFIC versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • As for its weight, the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC weighs only 58.4 pounds, making it one of the lightest inverter generators in the 3500-4500 rated wattage category.
  • When comparing it to devices with a similar running wattage, this inverter generator's lowest noise level of 63 dBA puts it alongside the noisier units. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 52 dBA.
  • As far as autonomy is concerned, providing up to 9 hours of runtime with a full tank at a 25% load, the GM4600iAEFIC falls into the low end in comparison with other inverters of a comparable power output. 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 Firman W03661OF, with up to 25 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. The inverter generator utilizes approximately 0.19 GPH of gasoline at a 25% load, placing it within the typical range of fuel consumption seen in products of comparable wattage. To prioritize fuel savings, we advise considering the Champion 200988, which stands out for its gasoline efficiency, consuming just 0.16 gallons per hour.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3500-4500W inverter generators, the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC is on the average side of the price range.

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