Key Features And Benefits
Extremely Portable: at a mere 48 pounds, this Portable Inverter Generator is lightweight and has a built-in handle for convenient carrying. The power plant can be easily stuffed in the back of the family car. And can be carried around like a fashionable suitcase.
Enhanced Fuel Efficiency: This Portable Inverter Generator features the eco-mode function, which allows the generator to automatically adjust fuel consumption by regulating engine speed as you plug and unplug appliances and devices to the panel. This optimizes the fuel economy giving it an impressive 6 hours of running time on the tiny 1-gallon fuel capacity at 50% load.
Ultra-Quiet Operation: the compact 7cc 4-stroke OHV engine runs at a mere 51 decibels at quarter load; quieter than a normal conversation. This unobtrusiveness makes it ideal for use in lots of locations- camping, hunting, tailgating and home back-up power.
Minimal Harmonic Distortion: This generator reproduces a pure sine wave and limits the harmonic distortion to less than 0.3% when there is no load and to less than 1.2% while running at full capacity. This makes it perfect for powering the most sensitive electronic devices.
Parallel Connection Capable: 2,000 watts might not be enough juice to power all your appliances. But there is a solution for that; the WEN 56200i allows you to link up 2 generators in a parallel connection to boost output power. This is achieved with the Parallel Connection Kit (not included).
