High-Output Capacity

A-iPower generator outlet options

The A-iPower SUA9000E generator produces 9,000 watts of power to get you up and running whether you're at the campsite, at the worksite, or faced with an emergency. This powerful generator comes with (4) 120V GFCI protected outlets for powering household items such as refrigerators, televisions, fans, lights, and tools. It also features (1) 120V 30R L5-30R twist-lock outlet and (1) 120/240V 30A L14-30R twist-lock outlet for items with greater electrical demands.


A-iPower SUA5000 comes with a DC charging cable

The generator also features (1) 12VDC 8.3-amp outlet. This port allows you to use the included DC charging cable to provide a trickle charge to any 12VDC battery. This outlet can also accommodate a USB adapter plug (sold separately) to charge gear that uses a USB cord.


Easy Electric Start Engine

This generator features an electric-start engine that offers easy, push button startup. It uses standard unleaded gas, meaning there is no need to mix gas and oil.


Before starting your generator, ensure nothing is connected to the outlets. Start your generator and let the engine run for a few minutes to warm up and stabilize. Check to make sure the circuit breaker is in on position before continuing. Once the generator is up and running, you may connect your electrical loads. To follow the recommended order of operation, connect the device with the highest starting watts first, like your air conditioner or refrigerator, and work your way down to the device with the lowest starting watts. By connecting devices in this order, you can make the most of your generator's capacity through connecting high wattage loads when there is more power available.


Safety Features

The SUA9000E generator also comes with many safety features designed to protect both you and the generator itself. 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 the emission of flammable debris that might burn someone or start a fire, protecting both you and the environment. The generator also features a voltage regulator and circuit breakers to maintain a proper voltage level and power current to keep your plugged-in devices safe.


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.


Power Demands

Starting (surge) wattage is the power 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 to 3 times more starting wattage than running wattage.


It is always best to start your generator with no load connected, then add each device one at a time. Additionally, a good practice to consider is connecting your devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts. As you connect and start devices, your available wattage decreases. This order of operation allows you to start devices with the highest power demands when there is more power available.

Determining Your Power Needs

When choosing a generator, knowing the amount of power you will need is crucial to your decision. Whether you are preparing for an emergency situation at home or taking a weekend trip in the RV, planning out your application is essential. The two calculations below provide power estimations that will help point you to a generator that is right for your needs.


Industry Standard Calculation

The Industry Standard Calculation is a quick and easy way to determine your required wattage. It may provide some padding in your wattage requirements, which could give you more power than you actually need, but you shouldn't have to worry about not having enough power. The following steps will help you quickly calculate the correct size generator to meet your application.


As stated earlier, you should always start your generator without any load, and then connect each device one at a time. The following calculation requires this approach to work. However, using this calculation removes the worry of connecting devices in a certain order.


1. Determine the starting watts and running watts for the devices that you want to plug into the generator.

a. Find the starting (surge) watts and 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.

b. If your device or manual only shows amps and volts, watts can also be determined through a simple formula. (Amps x Volts = Watts)

c. List all of your starting watts and running watts as seen in Table 1 below.


Table 1

Example DevicesStarting WattsRunning Watts
Air conditioner (10,000 Btu)1,8001,200
Refrigerator1,600800
Electric drill600450
Floor fan0100

2. To find the total starting watts required, add the starting watts for the device with the highest value to the running watts of all the other devices from Table 1.


1,800 + 800 + 450 + 100 = 3,150 total starting watts


3. To find the total running watts, add all of the running watts together from Table 1.


1,200 + 800 + 450 + 100 = 2,550 total running watts


To run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 3,150 starting watts and 2,550 running watts.


Advanced Precise Calculation

While the method for calculating your power needs outlined above will work, it isn't the most precise. If you aren't afraid of doing a little more math, you can use the Advanced Precise Calculation to get a more accurate idea of how much power you will need and potentially save yourself some money. Because the calculation above pads in enough power to ensure you can start your devices in any order, it may point you to a bigger and more expensive generator than you need. However, by following the more regimented, order-of-operations calculation below, you'll get a much more precise idea of how much power you need, which could in turn point you to a smaller and less expensive generator.


Again, you should always start your generator without any load, and then connect each device one at a time. The following calculation also requires that you start your devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts. When you connect devices in this order, you can start high demand devices when there is more power available.


1. Determine the starting watts and running watts for each device that you want to plug into the generator.

a. Find the starting (surge) watts and 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.

b. If your device or manual only shows amps and volts, watts can also be determined through a simple formula. (Amps x Volts = Watts)

c. List out these devices from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts as seen in Table 2 below.


Table 2

Example DevicesStarting WattsRunning Watts
Air conditioner (10,000 Btu)1,8001,200
Refrigerator1,600800
Electric drill600450
Floor fan0100

2. To find the total running watts, add all of the running watts together from Table 2.


1,200 + 800 + 450 + 100 = 2,550 total running watts


3. In Table 3, shown below, the values from Table 2 are used to calculate the highest total starting watts required as devices are connected and running. This number represents the highest power requirement you will encounter as you connect all of your devices to the generator. To find this, add the starting watts of each new device you connect to the combined running watts of all connected devices. The highest of these numbers will be the total starting watts required. And again, remember to always connect devices in order from highest starting watts to lowest starting watts.


Table 3

DeviceStarting WattsRunning Watts of All Connected DevicesTotal Starting Watts Required
1. Air conditioner1,800 +0 (nothing connected)= 1,800
2. Refrigerator1,600 +1,200 (AC)= 2,800
3. Electric drill600 +2,000 (AC + refrigerator)= 2,600
4. Floor fan100* +2,450 (AC + refrigerator + electric drill)= 2,550

* Even though the floor fan does not have starting watts listed, you have to account for the power needed to actually run it.


1,600 + 1,200 = 2,800 highest total starting watts required


In order to run all of these devices simultaneously, you would require a generator with at least 2,800 starting watts and 2,550 running watts. The starting watts are determined by the highest total starting watts required during the calculation in Table 3/Step 3. The running watts are determined by the total running watts from Step 2.

Video Transcript for A-iPower 9,000-Watt Portable Generator Review

Hey, guys, today we're going to be checking out the AI powered 9000 watt generator. Now, this is a conventional generator, it features an electric start. Let's go ahead and fire it up and see what it sounds like.So if you can see it's a fairly loud generator, but it's going to be great to use out of your camper, at the job site or even in the most intense situation. I'm going to go ahead and plug it in my camper and we'll head inside.While it is running I'm able to power up my entire RV. With this type of generator it's going to give me enough power to handle those larger appliances. It's a lot more powerful than those inverter generators, but it's extremely loud as you may be able to hear.

Let's see if you can listen. So coming out of my camper here, again that generator is really loud as I'm walking right next to it it only gets louder. So, again, this is the type of generator that you want to place as far away from the camp sight as you can so that way it's not so loud.So I'm walking away from it, it's getting quieter, this will give you an idea of how far away you may be able to set it without it being annoying. Now, I mentioned in the beginning that this was a conventional generator. This was more of your traditional style, a gas powered motor is attached to an alternator which then generates AC power.

But with this style, the power fluctuates making it unsafe to use with sensitive electronics, things like TVs computers, cell phones, you don't want to plug those items directly into the generator.The reason it's safe to use your RV, camper or even your house is because those convert that power down to a safe working limit. All in all the benefit to having this type of generator over an inverter generator is you only need one of these where you may need multiple inverter generators to generate that large amount of power. This generator offers 9000 starting watts and has 7000 running watts. On board it's pretty simple, there's no bells and whistles, it's all business. We have 420 volt common household outlets and over here we have two twist lock outlets, 120 volts, 120 volts, or 240, 240 would be good for using maybe a large compressor or even a large welder.Over here we have a 12 volt DC outlet, it includes alligator clips for charging batteries.

Right here is our circuit breaker for that 12 volt DC supply, here is our 220 amp circuit breakers and then here we have our large AC breaker. Down here we have our rocker switch for turning off the motor, the on switch and then the electronic start. Right here is our oil light, now please note as a safety it shuts off when it's low on oil that way we won't damage the engine.And then finally right here we have our run time indicator, that's in hours. Here on top we have our fuel gauge and our fuel cap. Now, it does hold seven gallons of standard gasoline so we don't have to worry about any mixture here.

It's a four stroke motor. Now, on a plus side, this is way better than an inverter generator, those generally hold around a gallon, with this one we don't have to check it as often.Now, this generator ways about 211 pounds, that's pretty darn heavy for a generator. That's just its dry way so that's without gasoline and oil. If you want to pick this up and load it on the back of a track I recommend getting a second set of hands, that's one down side to having a generator this large. A lot of inverter generators have a nice user handle on top that you can easily set wherever you need them and not have any issues. With this one again you're definitely going to need that second set of hands, but it does have an attached handle and it has wheels to make it a little bit easier.When it comes to storage again it's fairly large. It measures 27 and a half inches long, 26 inches wide, and about 26 inches tall. These will come in handy when maybe you're storing it in your work track of in one of your RVs compartments. When it comes to maintenance, the open design is going to make it extremely easy. This is a lot nicer than an inverter generator that may be encased where you have to remove multiple panels. Right here we have access to our spark plug, and it even comes with a tool to install and remove that.Here in front we have our panel for our air filter, flip the switch on top and at the bottom, the top comes off and then we can clean or replace that filter. On the opposite side we have our on and off fuel valve, our oil cap, the oil is included, it also includes the battery, that's for our electric start. When we're ready to start we'll want to be sure that our fuel line is in the on position. We'll turn our choke to the choke position. We'll turn our rocker switch to the on position and then we'll push it all the way down to electronically start it up.Once it takes on like this we'll want to turn the choke in the run position and then we're ready to use it. Now, in case our battery is dead for the electronic start, we can still use the manual pull cords start. You'll still want to make sure that that fuel valve line is in the on position, our choke is in the choke position, our rocker switch is in the on position and then we can pull the start. And that's our AI powered 9000 watt portable generator.

  • bTu is a measurement of thermal energy. The Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner w/ Heat Pump # AT15028-22 can put out 15,000 bTu. But if you are interested in the amount of current it draws it's amperage rating is 13.3 amps and wattage is 4,830 watts starting and 1,530 running. So you'd need a generator rated for over 4,830 to run the AC unit.
