How to pick up the perfect portable emergency generator?

We rely on power more now than ever before. A power outage means lifts not working, businesses stopping, security alarms choking above all, a dead phone battery. It is extremely critical for us to prepare for a situation like this and more importantly ensure that the preparation is relevant. You don’t want to live in an illusion that the issues you thought are covered don’t actually fully equip you.
So how do we estimate the exact wattage requirement? We could go about counting every bulb and every power point or simply select one of the 3 sizes. Medium, Large or X-large.

Medium Emergency Generators

Don't let the name fool you, there is nothing mediocre or average about these. Medium emergency generators (3,000-5,000 watts) may be relatively small, but they pack a good punch.

Unlike smaller camping generators, medium-sized emergency portable generators can simultaneously power multiple survival appliances, including your refrigerator, a water pump, and an air-conditioner.

Large Emergency Generators

If you want to thrive instead of just survive, consider a large emergency portable generator (6,000-9,000 watts) instead. To tap its maximum potential, install a manual transfer switches that can restore power up to 10 circuits in your main electrical panel. In other words, they can energize multiple rooms in your home (minus a central air conditioner). 

X-Large Emergency Generators

If you want the strength of a home standby generator without the shackles of being tied down, get an X-Large portable emergency generator (10,000+ watts). These portable generator giants generate enough power to keep your central air conditioner running through a summer or a black out. While electric start is standard on most X-Large models, they are not automatic. So, if you're not home, the electric start button won't press start itself.
So those were some quick tips on selecting the right portable generator. However, we recommend you visit our store at and speak to our expert power consultants or drop in a message on our website
