What is a portable generator?

Portable generators provide instant power virtually anywhere. So whether you’re camping in the great outdoors, tailgating before the big game, or adding back up power to your home, portable generators give you the power you need where you need it most. And the best part, there’s no installation required.

Just add some gasoline and plug in your items for instant power on the go.

All portable generators have two power ratings; the smaller one is called Continuous Power (aka Running Watts) and the larger rating is called Maximum Power (aka Starting Watts). Running Watts are what the generator can produce continuously while it’s running.

Starting Watts are what it can produce for a short time to help start motorized electrical items like inflator pumps, refrigerators, or window air conditioners, etc.

Note: Equipment with electric motors require more power to start than run. kW alone doesn't tell the whole story.
