Generac IX Series 2000 Portable Inverter Generator Review

generac-ix2000The Generac iX2000 portable inverter generator is made to power appliances while camping or on the road. The Generac iX2000 is small and compact at 49.6 pounds and has a handle which makes it convenient to take while traveling. With 2,000 running watts and 2,200 starting watts, it can be used to power everything from refrigerators to coffee pots to computers.

One of the most significant features of the Generac iX2000 is the inverter technology. This technology makes this a safe generator to use with sensitive devices such as computers, video game consoles, and other electronics. A microprocessor converts the raw power into AC power. In addition to this making it safe for computers, it also makes the generator smaller and more lightweight, which makes it a good fit for a camping enthusiast who needs to pack lightly. It is approved for usage in national parks.

Another feature of the Generac iX2000 is the FlexPower mode to save fuel and reduce noise. There are two different power modes to choose from in this portable inverter generator. There is the high mode which is good for large loads. It is also useful for recharging batteries. There is also the eco-mode. Because it doesn't use as much power, this option is quieter and saves fuel. This is convenient for anyone who wants a quiet generator but occasionally needs more power.  This portable generator is powered by a 126cc OHV engine.  With a 1 gallon fuel tank capacity the Generac iX2000 can operate for 4.7 hours at 50% load.

This portable inverter generator comes with standard safety features such as protection from overload, shutdown from low oil, and outlets that are circuit breaker protected.  LED lights on the control panel indicate system status.  These features makes this product safe and easy to use even for people who are unfamiliar with portable generators.

Since it is portable, it isn't the best buy for someone who is looking for a standby generator. It is also best for smaller appliances so anyone who is looking to run air conditioning or heating from a generator should look for something with a higher wattage. For normal RV, camping, or tailgating use it will provide enough power and is one of the more affordable generators on the market.  The Generac iX series of portable generators has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal after review by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute.
