Should I Choose A Petrol Or Diesel Portable Generator?
Portable diesel generators are ideal for situations where generator use is consistent and power needs are high, such as construction and mining sites. Portable petrol generators, on the other hand, are the better option for infrequent or temporary use, such as camping or emergency home backup. See our article here for more information on if petrol or diesel is right for you.
Are Portable Generators Waterproof?
Most portable generators are not designed for use in wet or rainy conditions unless they come with a silenced canopy. The Genesys 5.8kVA and 6.5kVA models are waterproof, coming with silenced canopies that protect the generator from the weather.
Can A Portable Generator Charge An Electric Car?
Yes. Portable Generators can be used to charge electric vehicles. However, they must produce a clean output of sine wave in order to be compatible with your car. Even then, they are only recommended for emergency use.
What Is A Silenced Canopy?
Silenced canopies are a protective cover providing secure, safe, and soundproof operation for your portable generator while in use. These canopies also provide protection from weather and the elements, extending the life of your generator.
What Size Portable Generator Do I Need?
You’ll need to calculate the combined power requirements of everything you want the generator to run. For example, if your total power needs come to 2,100 watts (2.1kW), look for a generator that supports this output.
