Certifications

Meets the following important certification standards:

  • US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • California Air Resources Board (CARB)

Powerful, Portable Generator

This inverter generator packs 2,000 watts of power to get you up and running whether you're at the campsite, worksite, or tailgate party. It lets you use the items you want and need, such as tools, small appliances, televisions, radios, fans, and lights. This lightweight unit has a carry handle right on top, making it easy to tote the generator wherever you go.


Safe for Sensitive Electronic Devices

This A-iPower generator uses a built-in inverter to produce clean AC power, making the generator safe to use with your electronic devices such as laptops and cell phones.


Electronic devices are made with delicate circuitry that requires steady, controlled electrical current. The electrical current produced by standard generators, however, is uncontrolled, allowing extreme fluctuations in power. And these fluctuations can easily damage your sensitive electronic devices.


This A-iPower generator, on the other hand, has a built-in inverter that controls the voltage that is produced. This important feature ensures that the generator is safe to use with your electronic equipment such as computers and medical devices.


Easy-Start Engine

This A-iPower generator's engine is designed to start up easily so you can power up faster and without hassle. The key to this easy startup is the elimination of excess fuel in the carburetor after each use. When the generator is turned off, the engine will continue to run for a few seconds to allow excess gas in the carburetor to burn off. Because the excess gas is burned off and not left to stagnate, the A-iPower generator will start up much easier and faster than a generator that contains old fuel in its engine.


Multi-Switch Provides Simple Operation

A-iPower SUA2000i inverter generator multi-switch

The multi-switch on the A-iPower generator integrates the fuel on/off, choke on/off, and engine on/off functions so that operation is a no-brainer. Simply turn the multi-switch to "on" and pull the recoil start. Then move the switch to the "run" position right after the generator starts. Finally, turn the switch to "off" when you're ready to turn off the generator. Because the choke is automatic, there is no separate choke switch to worry about.


Built-in Parallel Ability

A-iPower SUA2000i inverter generator has built-in parallel ability

This A-iPower generator has a built-in parallel ability that lets you easily pair it with another generator to produce double the power. By doubling the power, you can run equipment with higher electrical demands. Pair 2 of these generators together, or pair this generator with another 2,000-watt A-iPower generator (sold separately). The included connection cables simply plug into the corresponding ports on the back of each generator. Because the parallel ability is built in, you don't have to purchase a separate kit and remember to bring it with you.


Eco Throttle Engine Speed Options

A-iPower SUA2000i inverter generator has Eco Throttle, or 2 engine speeds

You can choose between 2 modes of engine operation with a flip of a switch using the generator's Eco Throttle feature:

  1. Eco mode adjusts engine speed to match the power demands of your connected devices. In this mode, the engine runs only as fast as is necessary, keeping noise to a minimum and saving fuel. And this mode is not only kinder to your pocketbook and your ears, it's also easier on the environment.
  2. High mode operates the engine at a steady high speed. This setting is used for high-load situations or during frequent on-and-off cycling of electrical devices.

Safety Features

This A-iPower 2,000-watt generator also comes with many safety features that protect both you and the generator itself. For instance, a low-oil indicator light lets you know when you need to add more oil. If oil levels remain too low to continue operation, the shutoff feature safeguards the generator's engine by automatically shutting down the generator. A built-in spark arrester helps prevent any sparking that might burn someone or start a fire, protecting both you and the environment.


Choosing a Generator

To choose a generator that meets your needs, you must match the size of the generator (that is, the starting output and running output in watts) with the electrical demands of the equipment that you want to operate.


Approximate Power Demands of Common Household Items

Starting (surge) wattage is the power that a device requires at startup. Running (rated) wattage is the power needed to keep the device running. A large appliance with an electric motor - such as a furnace, refrigerator, air conditioner, or washing machine - may require 2 - 3 times more surge wattage than running wattage.

Determining Your Specific Power Needs

The following steps will help you calculate the correct size of generator to meet your power needs.


1. Determine the total running wattage for the devices that you want to plug into the generator (generator's rated/running output in watts must exceed this value).

  1. Find the running (rated) watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator. (Look for a sticker or plate on each device or check your owner's manuals.)
  2. Add up those numbers to get the total running wattage for all devices.

2. Determine the total starting wattage for the devices that you want to plug into the generator (generator's surge/starting output in watts must exceed this value).

  1. Determine which device requires the most starting (surge) watts.
  2. Add that value to the total running wattage from Step 1 to get the total starting wattage.


Example Calculation

Video Transcript for A-iPower Generators 289-SUA2000I Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator with parallel kit. This 2,000 watt inverter generator provides a portable power source. You'll notice the control panel right here, very nice, very clean. It's going to feature one 120 volt outlet that powers household appliances, tools and electronic devices. It's also going to feature one 120 volt, 30 amp L5-30R twist lock receptacle and it's going to feature one 12 volt DC adapter outlet. Now this inverter let's you safely charge and run electronic devices. It's going to feature an easy start engine that offers hassle free start up, so this generator actually runs for 2-3 seconds after it shuts off.

That is designed to burn any access gas that may be in the carburetor. This is going to help failed start ups due to stagnant fuel, so that's a really nice feature of this particular unit. Now it's going to feature this multi-switch, which is located right here. This integrates the fuel on and off, choke on and off, and engine on and off functions for simple operation. When it comes to the engine that it uses, it's going use a Sensi 4-stroke engine, that uses standard unleaded gas, so there's no need to mix gas and oil. It's also going to have cast iron cylinder sleeves that help ensure a long engine life. The unit is going to feature a comfort grip, ergonomically designed recoil pull handle, that provides easy manual start up.

It does feature built in, parallel ability. It's also going to come with the included wiring for that as well. These are the connection cables that let you pair the generator with another generator for increased output, so this unit can be paired with an additional 2000 watt generator from AI power connections, are right here. These are your parallel output connections. It does come with the wiring cables to get that done. The unit is also going to feature what is known as an Eco-throttle.

That's going to provide two engine modes. It's a simple switch located right here, so you're going to have Eco-mode, that keeps the engine RPM just high enough to power the plugged in devices, so that's going to save fuel and reduce noise. Then you're going to have your high mode. That maintains high engine RPM's, so that's best for powered demands of hydra or rapid cycling devices. The unit is known for quiet operation.

It's not going to drown out camp ground conversation. It's known to be quieter than a typical vacuum cleaner, which is pretty impressive. It's going to feature safety features throughout the unit that prevents accidental free use, so right here on the control panel you're going to have your LED's. These are warning lights that will come on for instance, when the oil level is low, one of them will come on, so it has low oil and the engine will automatically shut down if the oil level becomes too low for safe use. We're also going to have a circuit overload indicator. We're going to have automatic voltage regulator, that's AVR that helps minimize voltage fluctuations and we're going to have a spark arrester that's prevents release of flammable debris. Now the unit also has an easy to read fuel gauge. Right here by the fuel cap it's going to have a fuel gauge. That's just a viewing window, that's going to let you know when your gas level is low. You can see that right there, this is your fuel cap and this is the plug that once removed, will allow you to gain access to the spark plug. The easy to read fuel gauges there, it's a clean running engine that meets CARB and EPA standards. This portable generator has a dry weight of around 46 pounds and includes a built in carry handle. Again, you're going to have the fuel cap right here. Also you're going to have an included filter and the cap is vented, so right now it's off. You can move this cap to the on position which opens it up and allows it to vent. Now with the generator, with the purchase of a generator, you're obviously going to get the generator, you're also going to get an oil funnel, you're going to get a 30 amp RV adapter. You're going to get the DC charging cable, so that way you can plug this in to this port right here and then you can charge a battery. It's got the clamps on there, positive and negative, red and black, so very easy to use. Again you're going to get the parallel kit, you're going to get an included screwdriver, that way you can take off these two screws here, so that if you remove this panel, it's going to allow you to gain access to the oil fill and it's going to allow you to gain access to the spark plug. That way you can remove the cover before using this slot right here to remove or install a spark plug, so it does come with a spark plug wrench, just like that it goes down and you can easily use this to remove an old one and install a new one. Also right here, right above that it does have an indicator that says spark plug access and it's going to tell you what type of spark plug that it uses. You're also going to get an owners manual, very detailed and organized. A few specs to go over with you real quick. The starting or surge power output is 2,000 watts, running or a rated power output is 1,600 watts. The running VAC amperage is 13.3 amps, DC output at 12 volts is 8.3 amps. Continuous run time for the unit at rated low is going to be four hours. At half load is seven hours. The unit measures about 20 inches long, by about 11 inches wide and 19 inches tall. Again, the engine type is a Sensi 79CC single cylinder air-cooled, 4-stroke OHV. Engine to horse power is 2.5, fuel tank capacity is 1.1 gallon. Oil capacity is .4 quarts. Oil type is SAE 10W30 and power line frequency is 60 Hertz. Please keep in mind that gas generators produce carbon monoxide, which is poisonous, so for your safety, always be sure to operate the gas powered generator outdoors. It does have the exhaust here on the back, as well as a venting design and again here on the control panel, you're going to have multi-switch, you're going to have you're connection points for your power, you're going to have the parallel output, you're going to have the Eco-mode, you're going to have the push button right here on and off for the 12 volt DC outlet. Then right here you're going to have a ground terminal. That way you can ground the unit to prevent electrical shock. That's going to do it for today's look at the Ai-Power 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator, with parallel kit.

After a year of use on my SeaRay 290 sundancer I am extremely satisified with these inverters. I purchased 2. they came with the connector so I have 2 sets of cables for them. Both of these were several hundred $ less than 1 Honda. Honda might be a little quieter but with both running in ECO mode noise is not an issue for us in the cabin at night. And unless it is really hot and humid they will run 8-9 hours on a tank running my boats A/C, Outlets, frig, and charging boat battery. They start right up. outside is all plastic or rubber. even spark plug is covered with rubber cover. These is great with the salt water environment they are exposed too. I simply wash them with soapy water when I get home and spray exhaust with an anti-corrosive spray. Done! They still look like and perform like new. Probably 80-100 hours on them. 575498

First of all many will say for the money this this the very best 1600/2000 watt inverter generator on the market today. I have several generators of different sizes and have indirectly sold several of these. This brand is sold nationally by large companies, not for any less money then can be bought at e, trailer.... Not one negative feedback can be found anywhere . it's spools up smooth and runs as quietly as any I heard . It appears to be well made and has all of the features you would want in this size generator. I run it in Econ. mode and with large tools there is never a hesitation. the one I received this week will be paired up for Parallel use in my camper, I will let you know how that works out. I do expect the same good results 341545

Excellent generator. I own a Honda 2200 as well. Ran them side by side and it sounded about the same noise level. My DB meter said the Honda was 2 DBs quieter, but I could not tell the difference with my ears alone. My Ai power fired up my 12000 btu AC no problem but could not start the 15000 btu unit. The Honda can barely start the 15000 unit, but it strains. The Honda is also a little larger unit rated at 2200watts max versus 2000. So this is a great unit and as long as you don’t need the extra capacity to start a large AC. I am also very impressed with the build quality of this unit. Also Etrailer did a great job. The unit arrrived promptly and undamaged. 528800

Product arrived ahead of the original delivery date and was in perfect shape. Added Oil and Gas, fired up on the 2nd pull. I took it with me to a remote cabin site and proceeded to use if for 2 days running saws and a compressor. Started with no more than 2 pulls each time and ran perfectly. Also runs very quiet, had no problems carrying on a conversation while standing next to it. I recommend it to anyone that needs a small Generator. 540638

I must say that i bought these generators a little worried because i had never heard of A-ipower generators (now i know that Home depot has them), but they turned out to be great, i live in Puerto Rico where hurricane María destroyed most of the electrical infrastructure and these little generators have performed flawlessly! I bought 2 and use them one at a time for a total of almost 20 hrs of power. Also, etrailer has been great with their customer service, would definitely recommend etrailer and A-ipower inverter generators! 448505

The shipping was swift and I was able to test the generator with a 1000 W microwave and then a small 1500 W radiant heater. Everything worked as it should. I got a chance to use it a couple of days ago for the first time after testing a month ago. NO OUTPUT!! The AC voltage is only 83V. Disappointed. I e-mailed A-ipower this morning to see who does warranty repairs in my area. Hopefully they won't take their time. It appears to be well made but again, disappointed. More stars later if it gets fixed fast! 501049

Generator arrived fairly quickly, packing was great. Excellent instruction manual. Added oil as per instructions, then gas(I use no ethanol gas), started right up. Checked sound level, 54db at 10 ft. It was quiet, but it IS a generator so you are aware it is there. After checking around on the internet, this is clearly the BEST price.(delivered). Its not a Honda, but at less than 1/2 the price it appears to be just as good. Happy camper ! 493603

by:


The 289-SUA2000i is a well designed, powerful, and reasonably priced 1600 - 2000 watt inverter generator. This generator will be used an additional electrical source of power for a cabin in northern Wisconsin. This inverter generator received a four star rating because it did not come with the rv adapter as part of the components listing. I will contact their customer service department and let them know. 437661

This is a good little generator. We had it for one camping season and use it to keep the battery charged on our trailer and to run/charge small devices when we are dry camping. This does everything we need except run the AC which we knew when we chose to go with this size. Machanically it starts up easy every time and runs good. It isn’t bad on gas and runs quiet. We are happy with our purchase. 488132

I know it's not a Honda I was a little concerned but need one to for off grid use bought one locally at a discount hardware store and returned it after finding this one on etrailer this thing is as good as a Honda might be a little louder but for the huge price saving and the accessories it comes with it can't be beat thought about purchasing another for parallel use 497642

Even when things do not go as planned or as should. Does not mean much if the company is not going to stand up and throw some back bone into what their doing. And I can say etrailer.com backs up their products. And are very fast to make corrections. I will buy from etrailer.com first if the need arises again. Buy the way generator is great and runs as expected to. 373897

Have not had time to really use this a lot, but so far so good. I bought a pair of these. When they arrived, added oil, fuel and 2 pulls and they started right up. Hooked the 2 together, and they powered the AC in the RV just fine. Only issue I had was they were missing the RV to generator adapter. Called eTrailer and they got them shipped out right away. 444273

This generator started on the second pull and runs quiet. It has a 30amp connection which works well for me as I plug my boat power cord directly into the generator. Havent tried to put a lot of load to it so not sure what it will handle. Not sure how it compares to the Honda but it costs half as much. I am very happy with it so far. 369021

The generator arrived in two days and was well packaged with no shipping damage. The instructions were very clear. I added oil and gas and pulled the rope twice and it was running. My only tests have been an electric drill and the AC on our camper. It handled both very well. I really think it will serve our needs very well. 368370

Delivery was perfect. And after hurricane Maria, we all know how important that is. It was easy to setup, just added the oil and gas and presto. On 1 gallon of gas, last night I got 12 hours. I connected a side by side fridge and some fans. Couldn't be happier. I recommended it to coworkers. Thanks etrailer... 445622

Comments

Randy, thank you for your review. Some appliances require more starting watts to turn the appliance on initially but a standard coffee maker requires 0 starting watts. I am not sure what type of coffee maker you are using but I would recommend making sure the generator is in high mode and not eco mode. High mode will allow the motor to run at high speed which will give enough surge to turn the coffee maker on.

A-ipower generator Part # 289-SUA2000I 2,000 watt inverter generator may not provide enough starting watts to power your campsite. To determine your power needs, add up the total running wattage of each of the devices you are trying to power with the generator. The next step is to determine the starting wattage how much power it requires to turn on for each device you want to power. Determine which device has the most starting watts and add that to the number the total of the running watts that you calculated earlier. The sum of those two numbers equals the amount of starting watts required to power your campsite. If your starting watt number exceeds 2,000 watts, this generator alone will not be sufficient for your campsite. A-ipower generator part # 289-SUA2000I does come with a parrell kit that allows you to connect to a second 289-SUA2000I and produce 3,800 watts of starting power. If the starting watts required for your needs exceed 3,800, I recommend etrailer brand portable generators part # 333-0001-0002. This etrailer generator offers 4,900 watts of starting power and is an inverter generator so it is safe to charge electronics such as laptops and cell phones.

Review from a similar A-iPower Senci Motor in Generators


I purchased the 289-SUA2000i-2 for my camper. I placed them on a carrier attached to the trailer receiver and everything worked great.....EXCEPT... while the generater were run i went into the camper and the vibrations were so bad i had to turn the generators off. do you have any suggeations.generators started on the firt pull and ran great. 542528


Comments

Unfortunately, the vibrations you mentioned are unavoidable. Any internal combustion engine will have a certain amount of vibration, because your cargo tray is attached to a hitch bolted to the campers frame, that vibration is transmitted directly to the structure of your camper. Some sort of closed-cell foam mat might help isolate the vibration from the camper.

eTrailer service was fantastic! The 5-star rating is for eTrailers, not the product. Yet. (See below) I just received the generators and have forwarded them on to my friends in hurricane-torn Puerto Rico, where they will certainly be put to the test. Updates once they arrive there! 444247

Review from a similar A-iPower Senci Motor in Generators


I bought 2. They start easily and are pretty quiet. Easy to move around . Both connected in parallel will NOT run my RV air conditioner. 568837


Comments

When set up in parallel, the 289-SUA2000i-2 generator set has a startup or surge max power output of 3800 watts, and a max running output of 3000 watts. In order to determine if this will be sufficient to run your RV A/C unit, youll need to know the max amount of power needed for start up. If the compressor for your A/C requires more than 3800 watts to start, this generator set wont be sufficient.

Do you have a question about this Generator?


  • Does Yamaha Make Motor of the A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator w/ Parallel Kit # 289-SUA2000I
  • Yes, the A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator w/ Parallel Kit # 289-SUA2000I uses a Senci engine so similar to the Yamaha MZ80 that the parts are interchangeable engine.

  • Operation of AC Unit and Other Outlet From 2000 Watt Portable Generator
  • We don't carry any 20 amp power inlets. I recommend you upgrade to the Epicord 30 Amp Twist Lock Power Inlet - White # 277-000137 or black # 277-000138. This will work well with a 2000 watt generator like the A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator w/ Parallel Kit - Senci Motor - Portable - Gas - 120V # 289-SUA2000I. This combination will allow you to run the interior plugs but not at their max simultaneously. You would need to consider adding the second generator in parallel # 289-SUA2000I-2...

  • Recommendation For Maintaining Battery Charge On Trailer When Disconnected From Tow Vehicle
  • You are correct that the trailer connector on your vehicle will maintain a battery on your trailer and will not charge it when connected. The wiring on the trailer connector is not big enough to draw all of the voltage form the alternator causing it harm. It will not however charge a battery once it is dead. I am not aware of a smart charge system as you described that detects and maintains the amount of current being used on your trailer. The options you have are to use shore...

  • Can A-iPower SUA2000i Run Parallel Connection with A-iPower model SC2000i?
  • There are A-iPower generators capable of running in parallel, but the SUA2000i cannot be paired with the SC2000i model. Instead, you would be able to use the A-iPower Inverter Generators w/ Parallel Kit # 289-SUA2000I-2, which gives you a pair of generators, two 30-Amp RV adapters, two DC charging cables, two spark plug wrenches, and two oil funnels. I've added a link to a video review of this product for you to take a look at.

  • Are Power Inverter With Continuous Power Modified Sine or Pure Sine Wave?
  • Continuous power does not mean modified or pure sine wave. If you have a specific model you are looking at, I can help further. For instance, the Power Inverter 1000 Watts with Three AC Receptacles # WC3720 says continuous power and is a Modified Sine Wave AC Output waveform. Some of the sample applications are even confusing as they are often used as Pure Sine wave applications, but based on the size are adequate.

If all of your trailer lights and appliances run off of 120V then the 12 volt battery is not going to power them. you will need to add 12 volt accessories and lights to the trailer.

  • The A-iPower 2,000-Watt Inverter Generator w/ Parallel Kit - Senci Motor - Portable - Gas - 120V, # 289-SUA2000I is designed to be paired with a second identical model. They have not tried pairing it with other brands, so they can't confirm or deny a fit.

  • What are the Differences Between A-iPower Generators
  • There is little difference between the pair of generators you referenced. The biggest is that # 289-SUA2000I uses a Senci 79-cc engine while 289-AP2000I uses a Yamaha MZ80 79-cc engine and is an inch longer and wider. Apart from that you will not be able to find a difference so I would not classify one as better than the other. I have attached links to video reviews of both generators for you to take a look at.

  • Generator Recommendation to Power Advent Air RV Air Conditioner # ACM135

  • Recommended Generator for Supplying Power to Refrigerator and Other Household Items

This information should be listed on the appliance itself. Once you have this information, you will want to determine the total running wattage for the devices...

  • Generator Will Shut Off After Running for a Minute
  • There are a wide variety of things that could be causing your generator, like the A-iPower # 289-SUA2000I, to shut off after a minute of running it. The common things to check for are making sure it has enough gas, that the gas is not old, how long it has been since the generator was started, if the battery is strong, and if you have a plugged fuel line. If it has been a while since the generator was started or if the gas is old it could have plugged a fuel line or gummed up the carburetor....

You will just want to make sure that the running power output (1,600 watts) of this generator is enough to run the air conditioner. When run in parallel the two A-iPower Generators will provide a starting power output of 3,800 watts.

Ethanol is used as an "oxygenate" and is added to fuel to help reduce hydrocarbon emissions that cause air pollution.

Best option would be to go with an inverter style generator like the part # 289-SUA2000I which will provide you safer power and much more fuel efficiency as well as a quieter operation.
