With storm season ramping up, you’ll want to protect against potential power outages as much as you can. Losing power is never convenient, so keeping a generator ready to go can turn an outage from a potential emergency into a mild inconvenience. Portable generators can also be used for camping, tailgating, a job site, and more. The generator we’re featuring today has 2,000 starting watts and 1,600 running watts when using gasoline. Those numbers are slightly lower when using propane. While a 2,000-watt generator probably won’t run your entire house, it should be able to power things like lights, microwaves, small appliances, and TVs. Of course, this will vary from person to person depending on the wattage requirements of the items you’re trying to run. If you’d like to learn more about how it all works, check out this handy article from EcoFlow.
