Why Should you have a portable generator?

10 Good reasons tp explain why should you must have portable generator

When And Where Are Generators Used?

If you’ve ever wondered–What is a generator used for?–count yourself blessed to live somewhere with such a dependable power grid (and maybe try to get out more).   

Thanks to their dependable ability to provide electricity when there would otherwise be none, generators have been a must-have item for vigilant business owners and homeowners for decades. And they’ve only grown more popular in recent years, thanks in part to their wide range of functions. 

1. Emergencies

Generators are synonymous with disaster preparedness and emergency use is one of their most common jobs. Generators’ usefulness during a natural disaster such as a hurricane or flood that knocks out power for days on end ranges from convenient to downright life-saving. Extremes of hot and cold kill Americans every year, and the ability of a generator to power something as simple as a space heater during a blizzard could mean the difference between life and death. 

2. Routine Power Outages

When the power goes out for non-emergency reasons, a high-capacity standby backup generator can keep you on your daily routine without missing a beat. But because most Americans only deal with outages for a few hours per year on average, many consumers opt for a smaller, portable generator that can keep the fridge running, a few fans blowing, and other minor appliances powered until the juice comes back.

3. Standby Power For Businesses

When it comes to grid power reliability, commercial enterprises have much more at stake than the average homeowner. A few hours of downed equipment could mean millions of dollars in missed orders and customers lost forever. 

A standby generator (or two) is the best way for companies to ensure a virtually uninterrupted power supply. Certain industries such as hospitals are mandated to have a literally uninterrupted supply, which can be done with a UPS (uninterrupted power supply) system so that power doesn’t drop out for even a few seconds

4. Camping

Whether it’s a generator for RV camping or the good old-fashioned, open-air variety, these machines add a touch of civilization to the rugged outdoors. You may want to power an electric skillet, lights, a fan, or an electric fillet knife for those fresh-caught fish, so you won’t need too much generating capacity. 

Inverter generators are a popular choice for camps as they’re quiet, often a must-have as many campsites have strict noise limits. They’re also lightweight and compact, although they are often more expensive than other models

5. Construction

As one might imagine, construction sites are often cut off from readily available power supplies. But that doesn’t mean everything gets done by hand. Huge diesel generators are often trailed in to support the machinery, trailers, ventilation, water pumps, security, and more, with portable generators powering table saws, grinders, drills, and other power tools. There’s even a special class of generators for welding that combines a welder with a generator.  (and other options for power generation).

6. Mining

Like construction sites, mines are often primitive environments that depend on generators to get things done. An estimated 70% of the average mining operation’s electricity comes from generated electricity, which powers shovels, drills, and excavators. It also lights the tunnels deep underground to allow the miners to work. 

7. Agriculture And Ranching

Generators are often used as either backup power or even primary power for farming operations, as well as portable power for working on hard-to-reach locations. Barn, stable, or chicken coop heaters, fish farm air pumps, and irrigation systems are just a few farming and ranching devices that are commonly powered by generators. 

8. Night Working

Road maintenance crews are an example of people who need to be able to work at night to minimize the inconvenience to drivers. For jobs like these, trailer-mounted light towers–often directly attached to generators–are used to provide a temporary fix.

9. Fairs And Carnivals

Portable generators make it possible to turn a school parking lot on Friday into rollicking carnival grounds on Saturday. They power the rides, bounce houses, shaved ice and candy cane machines, the music, the lights, and all the other fun stuff that needs electricity to work. 

10. Family Reunions, Weddings, Cookouts

Whatever the reason for the soirée, generators are almost always needed for outdoor parties. The DJ setup, dance floor lighting, food warmers, coffee makers, photo booth, and any heating or cooling units all need a power source. Indoor power can sometimes be drawn on, but you’ll want to avoid overloading extension cords or trying to run them too far.

Detailed description about the Product

WEN 56203i Super Quiet 2000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator w/Fuel Shut Off, CARB Compliant, Ultra Lightweight

Remember when you had clean and quiet portable power? The WEN 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator provides clean energy, free of voltage spikes and drops, without all the noise of a regular generator. Produce up to 2000 surge watts and 1700 rated watts of power. Our 79cc 4-stroke OHV engine operates at an extremely quiet 51 decibels at quarter load, quieter than a window air conditioner or the average conversation.

This limits its invasiveness while camping, hunting, tailgating, and restoring backup power. The WEN 2000W Inverter Generator is also equipped with fuel shutoff. This feature turns off the flow of fuel, allowing for the generator to use up the remaining fuel from the carburetor before automatically shutting down.

This helps fight the build-up and blockages caused by stagnant fuel inside of the carburetor, minimizing maintenance while prolonging the unit’s lifespan. Designed to mirror a pure sine wave, this generator limits total harmonic distortion to under 0.3 percent at no load and under 1.2 percent at full load, making it safe to run laptops, cellphones, monitors, tablets and other sensitive electronics. The lightweight 39-pound design makes for easy portability while the ultra-efficient one-gallon tank provides over 7 hours of half-load run time.

The fully-packed panel comes equipped with two three-prong 120V 14A NEMA 5-20R receptacles, one 12V 8.3A DC receptacle and two 5V USB ports.

Maximize fuel economy by engaging the eco-mode switch. This allows the generator’s engine to automatically adjust its fuel consumption as items are plugged into and unplugged from the panel, preventing the unnecessary usage of gasoline. Need more energy? Easily link up any two WEN inverter generators using a WEN Parallel Connection Kit (sold separately) in order to share wattage amongst multiple units.

Low-oil and low-fuel automatic shutdown combine with the built-in overload protection and indicator lights to safeguard both your generator and your electronics from damage. Backed by a two-year warranty.
