Best Portable Generators for a Boat

Best Generators for a Boat?

If your outdoor activities require electricity, a portable generator is a must. Generac’s IQ 2000 portable inverter generator is perfect for tailgating, camping, hunting, or any time you need to power up your outdoor adventure.

Inverter generators use a different type of alternator than standard portable generators. A digital inverter module converts raw power produced by the generator from DC to AC power. Best of all, the IQ 2000 varies its engine speed based on electrical demand, which significantly reduces noise levels and fuel consumption.

One of the main considerations with any generator is noise. A loud generator can ruin your party or a good night’s sleep. The IQ 2000 is quiet. In fact, when tested in a third party lab, the IQ 2000 ran quieter than its competitors.

When you’re out at the game or at the campsite, there’s nothing worse than running out of fuel when you least expect it. You don’t have to worry about that with this handy run-time remaining display, which shows how long before you need to refuel. That’s just one of the helpful features on the IQ 2000 that you won’t find on any other portable generator.

For starters, this thing is super easy to use. The power dial puts start, run, and stop functions right at your fingertips. And this simple switch lets you choose between turbo, standard, or economy power modes. Choosing the lower modes reduces noise and fuel consumption. Status indicators alert you to low fuel, low oil, overload, or overheating. The exclusive power bar monitors and instantly displays the wattage you’re producing at any given moment. The generator’s 2000 starting watts is enough to power all your tailgating or campsite appliances.

Of course, there are times when you need more power. Fortunately, the IQ 2000 is parallel ready. Just connect two IQ 2000 generators using the optional parallel kit to get almost twice the power. Setting it up is as simple as plugging in an appliance. The IQ weighs in at less than 50 pounds, making it very easy to carry wherever you need it. Portable generators bring comfort and convenience to your outdoor activities. Pack a Generac IQ 2000 portable inverter generator to power up your next expedition.

Hi. My name’s Brad, and what we have here is a 1200-watt-hour portable generator. Now, the first thing I noticed about the device here is its weight. Now, inside this battery here is several lithium ion batteries, which make it extremely lightweight compared to the competition. Most of our competition uses lead acid batteries, which makes a device similar to this easily over 100 pounds.

So this device, with the handles here, easy to carry around and take car camping, take tailgating, use an emergency prep kit. Whatever you need, because this 1200-watt hours here is going to charge up your devices hundreds of times.

So let’s go over the ports here. What we have here is some 12-volt inputs, which are compatible with our commander solar chargers. Now, also these inputs are compatible with standard wall outlets, and overall, this battery will take about 60 to 100 hours to fully charge. What we have here is three standard AC outlets, which are compatible with standard wall outlet devices such as laptops, mini fridges, televisions. One standard 12-volt output, two-barrel 12-volt outputs, as well as three USB ports, which charge smaller devices such as tablets, smartphones, MP3 players, even digital cameras.

It’s important to note that this generator packs some power. This will charge a smartphone or digital camera over 150 times, a tablet between 25 and 50 times, and a laptop around 20 times. In addition, you can charge standard devices such as TVs and mini fridges, and they’ll give you over 10 hours of power. What’s special about this is that I can charge devices simultaneously, so as you can see, I can plug a laptop into this standard 3-prong input, as well as charge a smartphone through its integrated USB input right here.

Overall, the Generator 1200 is a portable, powerful, light-weight generator that you can take with you on the go to keep you charged up for days at a time.

We all need power. But we all seem to run out of it, either because we choose to enjoy nature away from the grid, or in disaster scenarios, the grid chooses to get away from us. That’s why we’ve designed this, the KaliPAK, a portable solar energy kit that meets dozens of off-grid energy needs. Nature trails, photography trips, all-day picnics, disaster scenarios, and electricity shut-downs, daily use in areas with unstable electricity supply. The KaliPAK is completely autonomous and can fully charge from either the sun, a car, or a wall charger. Its 38 AH battery is powerful enough to charge your iPhone up to 120 times, and powerful enough to provide energy for our entire set for a whole day, including a fridge, until we ran out of beer.

You can even add a rain cover to keep the power going in case of rain. And a Bluetooth app for easy management. When designing the KaliPAK, our team focused on developing a seamless off-grid user experience with an all-inclusive kit, an optional daisy-chain solar panel for double-charging power, a cool app, and storage for your devices and accessories. The KaliPAK is a must for every off-grid scenario. Fully portable, it provides you with natural free energy wherever and whenever.
