Top 9 Generators
We've kicked the tires on these 200 Generators and these are our top value picks for 2023
Best Midsized: Westinghouse 12500 Watt Dual Fuel Home Backup Portable Generator, Remote Electric Start, Transfer Switch Ready, Gas and Propane Powered, CARB Compliant
Considering the wattage, this is actually a compact unit. We've tested another brand 6500w unit that is bulkier and heavier.
The dual fuel feature is amazing! Run out of gas? No problem, with the twist of a knob and a quick hose attachment, you can run off of your grill's propane tank! It even has a remote start/stop key fob that works with the electric start - so no need to go outside to get it started. The integrated charging port for the 12v starter battery is very convenient. No disassembly or bulky/heavy chargers. Comes with a small wall charger, like that of an RC car, plugs right into the port located on the main control panel of the unit.
The hard rubber tires are nice, no inflation needed and no worries of a flat when you pull it out to use it.
Assembly was quick and painless. All hardware and required tools were included. A funnel and 1 quart of oil was also included. All I had to do was install 2 wheels, 2 rubber feet, add the oil and fuel. The unit started right up.
Best Value for Camping: DBPOWER Portable Power Station 505Wh 500W (Peak 1000W) Outdoor Generator Mobile Lithium Battery Pack with 110V AC Outlet (Solar Panel Not Included) SOS LED for Road Trip Camping Outdoor Adventure
The handy Power Supply has already saved Dillio more money than we paid for it. We work at many business conferences exhibiting our services. Most of the conferences can run from $45-$70 bucks a day to use their power from the wall. That adds up at a 4-5 day show. So I have this now to bring our own power. It runs a 32in tv, MacBook Pro, Chromebook, and Ipad for 5-7 hours daily. The computers are taking very little juice since they are on batteries. But I am impressed, and the ROI for us has been, above all things, the best part. In one show, I made back almost all my money. It's a powerful and reliable little unit.
