Buying a Portable Generator

BUYING A PORTABLE GENERATOR

Learn the main considerations for selecting and purchasing a portable generator.

The most diverse category of generators, portable generators are built for versatility and portability, providing power away from the electrical grid. Common use cases include recreational activities like camping or tailgating and professional use for construction or mobile businesses. Some people use portable generators as a backup power source for home essentials during an outage.

WHEN DO I CHOOSE A PORTABLE GENERATOR?

Simply put, you should choose a portable generator when you need power on the go. They offer more portability than other more permanent options like the standby or RV generator and can have lower associated costs depending on the use case.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE GENERATOR TO GET?

Calculate the wattage you’ll need to power, leaving a buffer in case you use more than your calculation. Consider the durability you’ll need based on where you intend to use it and the number of desired outlets.

WHICH FUEL SOURCE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Once you’ve narrowed your choices, you may have a few options for fuel sources: diesel, gasoline, battery, and/or solar. Many buyers choose environmentally friendly options like solar when possible. Additionally, clean sources may work better with certain electronics. However, some high-power generators will require you to use diesel to get a high enough output.
