Customer Questions & Answers

Will this generator run an 8000 btu a/c unit in my camper?

Will this generator run an 8000 btu a/c unit in my camper?
Asked by: jacobobo
It should but you would want to confirm the specs. Two things you want to check. Is the peak/starting wattage of the ac unit below the peak/starting wattage of the generator. Secondly is to ensure where the running load falls. For example, a 5,000btu window unit uses around 700-800w. Rule of thumb is starting wattage could be twice the running wattage IE 1400-1600w. Which falls well below what this generator puts out. So you would be good there. My goal is to size my generator so my load is around 50% of the capacity of the generator. This ensures the generator isn't running wide open to keep up with power demands. A generator at 100% demand is going to run at 100% throttle which means maximum noise and fuel consumption. Getting to 50% or below means less noise, less fuel usage, and allows for some excess capacity to charge batteries, run lights, etc. However, going and getting a generator that is 2-3 times your needs thus a lower load % is diminishing return because the bigger gen likely will require more fuel at the lower load level than the correctly sized gen at 50%.

What is the range of the Bluetooth controller? Can I use it in my house if the generator is outside (as it should be obviously)?
Asked by: ddh
I get that is the range for a class one device, but what is the real world or Ryobi rated range? How well did they integrate the antenna?

Having trouble getting this generator to run our deep freeze (not a big one) during a power outage. Any thoughts on how to get it to work?
Asked by: Mel
Ryobi Outdoors - the freezer is 5A/120v, and so it should be able to run on this generator with room to spare, however, it doesn't work. I have contacted the support line multiple times and have not been provided a solution. We will be returning it.

Customer Reviews

Bluetooth 2,300-Watt Super Quiet Gasoline Powered Digital Inverter Generator is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and fuel-efficient generator with convenience in mind... and revolutionary bluetooth I received this generator to replace my WEN 2,000 watt inverter generator. Overall, its an improvement over the predecessor. In general, this Ryobi generator is light, compact, efficient on fuel, relatively quiet, easy to maneuver and maintain and it can power a 15 amp circuit. I can easily carry it out of my shed then wheel it to the location needed. This can be used at work-sites, camp sites or during power outages. The bluetooth function is revolutionary and saves you from having to check on fuel. In this review, I included a short video with a brief tour of the generator and its operations. The generator arrived at my doorstep packaged very well in thick styrofoam. There was no damage to it, unlike my WEN which had a cracked panel from shipping. The Ryobi generator weights about 56 lbs without fuel and was easy to set up, just pour in the oil with the convenient paper funnel provided, add fuel, adjust choke and start it up. This generator was built with a lot of thought in mind; there is a suitcase handle (an improvement over the Ryobi 2,200w), two handles on either side and a pull out handle so you can wheel it around. The wheels are great on flat and somewhat rough surfaces like grass. Around the gas cap there is an overflow basin with a spillover, so, if you should spill gas, it doesn't pour all over the machine. To access inner components of the generator, there is an access panel which can be removed by just turning a knob, unlike my WEN in which I had to remove several screws. There is also another port you can take off in order to drain the oil more easily (see photo). Finally, all over the generator are instructions for use which are handy if you dont have the manual nearby. What I really like about this generator is it is powerful get efficient on fuel. 1,800 running watts means you can power a 15 amp circuit, just what I need to run my furnace fan in a power outage or anything you can plug into a 15 amp outlet. The 2,300 starting watts is great as well. The generator holds 1.2 gallons which will last you around 4 hours at a full load and over 15 in idle with a small load. Aside from the wattage, the number on thing to consider when buying a generator is the gas "mileage". If the gas stations are crowded or lose power too, you want as much fuel on hand and for it to go far. A lessen learned from storms including Katrina. This generator powered my 10 amp leaf blower which my WEN could not before overloading. The generator has two plugs and low and high watt USB ports and the inverter types are optimal for sensitive electronics. The LCD screen is very nice and keeps you informed on how much load is being drawn, how much fuel you have, and how much time until empty. (See picture) This is great info to have. I do hope the LCD screen lasts in the long-run thought. The generator also has an overload reset switch which is nice so you don't have to restart the generator in case of an overload. I do wish the screen would give actual wattage used. Finally, the app and bluetooth are awesome. You can monitor the generator from inside. I have to be about 30 ft away inside to get a reading but it saves runs outside in cold or bad weather. The app is simple and pretty much tells you what the LCD screen on the generator does (see picture). The only problem I have with the generator is the non-opening panel seems to shake and make a noise while the generator is in idle (see video).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Last year I went 3 days without power after a hurricane. This year that wont happen. I finally got a generator so I wont have to throw away all my bad food that melts in the freezer. I have tested it on my refrigerator and television and satellite dish controller at same time and have no problem. So I will have cold food and television. That's all I need to sit out the storm. With the Bluetooth I can sit in the house and monitor the unit for consumption and take the guess work out of running out of fuel. No more regrets about not getting power in time. With this new easy to use, easy to transport, and easy to monitor unit I have my power outages covered. Also has usb ports to recharge your phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Auto Idle and Bluetooth connectivity The Ryobi Bluetooth 2,300-Watt Green Gasoline Powered Digital Inverter Generator is great for emergencies or for remote power needs. The generator is protected very well in the shipping box with large Styrofoam sections. The product came with 12 oz of engine oil which must be poured in before starting it. There was a small paper funnel included to make this easier as it is near impossible to direct pour into the opening because the cover is in the way. This model improves over the previous generation with a smaller and more efficient engine. It also adds Bluetooth connectivity which allows you to pair with a smart phone to view run time remaining, fuel level, load level, as well as enable/disable auto idle and power off the generator. An integrated display with backlight also shows similar information. The front panel has two USB charge ports, two 120v 20A outlets, auto idle switch, 20 Amp circuit breaker, overload reset and a parallel kit connector for joining generators together to produce more power. Starting the unit is very easy. You set the dial to cold start and pull the cord a couple times until it fires up. Let it idle for 20-30 seconds then move the dial to run/re-start. If you have auto idle engaged, the motor will stay at a low idle until a load is detected then it fires up to the needed speed to support the load. As a test I attached a 1500 watt heat gun to pull a high amperage draw and the generator handled it easily. I like the Bluetooth functionality because you can keep the generator a safe distance away from your enclosed space but be able to easily monitor the fuel level and estimated remaining runtime without having to go outside to check it. This product has multiple carrying handles. There is a single handle on top for one handed carrying. There are also handles on each end on top for two handed carrying. Finally a collapsible handle can be extended from the bottom front to pull the generator around on its integrated wheels. While this unit is not powerful enough to run a household during a power outage, it can certainly be used to keep your refrigerator cold. Keeping a fridge full of food from going bad would allow this generator to pay for itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This generator packs enough power to light up, heat, and/or cool my pop-up camper. The Ryobi Bluetooth 2300 Watt Green Gasoline Powered Digital Inverter Generator became a welcome addition to my regular camping equipment as soon as it arrived. I require a constant 1,260 Watts to enable the power inverter, electric lights and all the appliances in my pop-up camper to operate properly. At this power level the inverter/generator runs smoothly and quietly for about 2.95 hours using 1.2 gallons of unleaded gasoline. A healthy 2,100 Watt surge is required when the roof-top air-conditioner starts into Hi-Cool mode. The Ryobi inverter powers this without a sputter. The power usage settles to a generator pleasing 950 Watts after the AC compressor settles into operation. I was pleased to find a unit as powerful as this in a small physical size that runs so quietly. The retractable tow handle and rear wheels at the back make moving this hi-tech machine wherever necessary a breeze. The compact size of the Ryobi Bluetooth 2300 is small enough to fit nicely into my Husky 70" Truck Tool Box and leave lots of room for the other necessary items. I expected the unit to be equipped with a camper plug-in but, it is not. So I used a short, 12-gauge, heavy-duty, 120-volt, grounded extension cord to test the generator/camper combo before taking it on an adventure. This same connection combination works to power 2 refrigerator/freezers and a small chest freezer during two power-outages that occurred at my home in the country. The Ryobi started the first time I pulled the starter cord and runs so quietly that, when placed a short distant from the camper, we do not notice it. When the AC is off and the refrigerator has cooled down, the generator‘s idle-down feature kicks in before I turn it off for the night. With the inverter’s Bluetooth feature and GENControl app, I can monitor the real-time fuel, load, and runtime data that shows on the LED screen in the control panel from my smartphone. I can, also, remotely shut down or reset the generator using this app. This inverter generator is safe for sensitive electronic devices allowing me to connect my computer, Wi-Fi hotspot, satellite dish, or flat-screen TV to the electrical system being supplied with power. I think I will order one of the parallel-kits and a second Ryobi Bluetooth 2300 Watt Green Gasoline Powered Digital Inverter Generator to link together for enough power to run a digital, giant screen HDTV to watch the big games and enjoy microwaved pop-corn while camping out at the lake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I've owned several generators and this one has quickly become my favorite. The bluetooth and app allow me to check on the generator without having to physically check it. So instead of leaving the campfire every few hours or going out to check the generator before bed I can just look on my phone. The app will tell you the hours on the gen (good for knowing when an oil change is due), estimated fuel remaining based on current load, and how much load is being put on the generator. The integrated wheels and handle are also really nice. I did notice there is a safety feature that prevents you from collapsing the handle unless the generator is mostly flat so keep that in mind. This generator is quiet too as generators go. Even under load it is less noisy than what my cheapie 3500w gen at idle with no load. Noise is a big deal if you don't have enough cord/space to move a loud generator away. The other nice feature is you can pair this Gen with another one using a parallel kit to get a 4,600w setup. This is a feature normally only found in more expensive setups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and is pretty quiet This generator works pretty well is definitely quieter than past generators I have owned. This will run 1 major appliance at a time, (fridge, TV, Microwave) or several smaller devices at one (laptop, phone chargers, lamps etc). Out of the box there really isn't much to it, just add the oil as described in the quick start guide, set the dial to cold start and pull the handle. Out of the box it took about 3 pulls to get the generator started. I have not had any issues with oil leakage on this model and have let it run for hours with no issues or leakage of any sort. It's fairly light unit in itself, but it does have a retractable handle that make wheeling it around easy. though i usually just carry it as it's light enough. the display is nice because it will tell you how much gas in the tank as well as the estimated run time left at either idle speed or under load. The Bluetooth app gives the same information, you just don't have to walk over to generator to get the information off the LCD screen. I plan on using this all summer long on many camp outs, and it'll be a nice "just in case" any time we might have a power outage at the house. I would highly recommend one of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real World Use Case At the time of writing this review there were seven others and many said it will run a small load. I bought this specifically to power my kenmore deep freezer and frigidaire giant refrigerator after a power outage left us without power for a few days. When I plugged JUST those two in this unit and they ran for over 12 hours. So, during the day I was able to power a few other items like my modem, router and laptop, which dropped the runtime about an hour. This thing is great. It's small, portable, and with the built in handles, easy to move. Glides great in hard surfaces, but a little trickier in the rougher ones (grass/gravel). My first start took a couple pulls, but it was easier afterwards. Perfect for emergencies and great for camping. I use this Scout activities often. Someone mentioned it was hard to understand or use. It comes with picture instructions, and I had it running in 10 minutes including putting in the oil and gas. Also, it does come with 12oz of 10w30 4 cycle, but they recommend replacement after about 20 hours of usage, so pick up another bottle. Couple items I love on the design: - Spillway for gas overflow. I wish I had this on my mower. - Spillway for oil replacement. Makes changing oil really easy. - 3 handles plus the luggage handle. - Simple operation - Run much quieter than most generators - Powerful and VERY fuel efficient - Bluetooth and App are cool nerd features that I enjoy. It's nice to turn your generator off without leaving the house or tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, starts after 3 pulls Works very well, starts after 3 pulls and I hope that gets better with time. Runs quiet, amazingly quiet. This will sit outside my house and run my heater via an extension cord during the next power outage. Nice display on the unit with useful information like load & run time left. The App works flawlessly on my iPhone, I can check the run time left from inside the house, to know when to go fill it up with gas. Speaking of gas, my only beef with this is that there was a little bit of gasoline in the tank when I opened the box. The gas had leaked out and dissolved some of the Styrofoam packaging and wet the instructions along with the cardboard. My garage smelt like gasoline for a couple of days. It comes with a telescopic handle to make it easier to move around the yard, like pulling a suitcase with wheels. But when I did I had the gasoline tank full, and it leaked out onto the unit itself. So I am not sure if I have a unit with a faulty gasoline cap or I overfilled the tank. Anyways, it is quiet and smooth running, small and light, and easy to use.
