The generator produces 1500 starting watts and 1200 running watts. This unit also makes a great solution during an emergency to power a few essential items you need in a power outage - lights, microwave, fan, TV, modem/router, cell phone charger, etc. (Note: this unit is not recommended for emergency home backup for powering air conditioners, stoves, furnaces or sump pumps.)

The 1200 Watt Multi Purpose Portable Generator operates at 65 dBA from 23 ft. and has a run time of up to 10 hours on a full tank of gasoline at 50% load.

The generator is portable and comes in a durable steel frame. The 1200 Watt Multi Purpose Portable Generator comes with a 120V 20A household outlet (5-20R). The unit also comes with a voltmeter: displays power output from the generator.

    I bought this generator for family camping trips. It's perfect for what we need it for. It keeps our phones charged and charges the battery on my electric trolling motor. We didn't need anything huge and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. This is great.
