Questions & Answers

Could I run two of these in parrallel to increase the wattage to 4000?

Asked by: Glenn
On inverter generators it is technically possible, but the generator must have a special connector that allows the 60hz oscillator in one to behave as a master so the other(s) are in sync with it. But keep in mind that no generator can respond fast enough for a high-impulse start up and some equipment can be damaged with what amounts to a brown-out condition when starting. (if you have any equipment such as compressors which includes refridgeration/AC or with sensitive electric equipment of any time, you want to use a generator with more than the 'impulse' current needed for the startup on it's typical output. Many of these smaller generators have 'economy' modes that scale the generator speed to the current being pulled which means their typical-output varies and any increased draw will be met with delayed response)

I bought this to power a new out of the box LG 5,000 BTU AC, 440 W, 4.1 AMP. When the AC compressor starts. gen almost dies and the overload switch trips. Pushing the overload button, it doesn't reset. I Have to restart the gen to reset the switch. Researching online, Those with a Honda 2,000-watt gen are not having a problem running a 5,000 watt AC. So why won't this Lifan gen 2,200-W, 1,800 running watt gen run my 5,000 BTU AC.
Asked by: mark
I run a 5k air conditioner with a smaller generator than this but I have to run it at max a/c on really hot days, so it doesn’t cycle off or on milder days I set so I get at least a minute of off cycle time, this lets the high pressure side bleed down to reduce the restart wattage load on the generator.

Will the 2kw max, intermittent of this unit power an ac compressor at start that draws a running 920 watts

Asked by: Steve
I've done this with a compressor and generator, with the tank empty, the starting load was about 50% more and lasted for 1/2 second until the motor was up to speed. However, once it shut off and the air pressure dropped below 80 psi and tried to restart, the load doubled and it lasted for 2 to 4 seconds until it reached full speed. If you can use or bleed the air pressure off so the compressor never stops you might get away with it.

Hi will this machine run a 8 amp shop vac. thanks! NU
Asked by: NU
8 amps x 120 volts = 960 watts With that said, I run a shop vac around the same size, and if the Generator is warm it works well, but when cold it trips out I have bump the power switch on my vac and a blower to have the inverter generator come up to speed then bam it works good

LIFAN Energy Storm 2,000/1,800-Watt Gas Powered Portable Inverter Generator- 50 State Compliant is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 116.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this little generator!!!!!! Had this 2 weeks, it's great!!!! (So far.) it's really quite (for a generator) I used it today at the park and it powered up my electric grill, this had it running pretty hard (1600watts) when I tried to plug in the ac at the same time, it overloaded, the ac has a 1100 watt surge. Then runs at 450 watts, we ran the ac, tv, lights, fan and it ran a idle, was at the park for 5 hrs and still has 1/2 tank, couldn't hear the generator over the ac, I turned off the ac and could barely hear the generator from inside of my teardrop camper. The 2000 watt Honda has more power and is a a little quieter( should be at $1000+) , but for $359.00 this seems to be a great machine, I bought a generator for hurricane Wilma,(3000 watt) but it was heavy, bulky, and noisy, we never used it and now she's dead. I bought this one for the possibility of a hurricane, but will be able to use it all the time so she doesn't get gummed up,like the last one. Hope this review helps. If I have any problems I'll post. But so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am VERY PLEASED with this purchase! I bought this... I am VERY PLEASED with this purchase! I bought this for use with my travel trailer in remote campgrounds without electricity. It does a great job of powering my various RV systems and maintaining my RV battery. I am able to run lights, water pump, microwave oven, toaster and even an electric fry pan (though not all at the same time) with this generator. When you use a higher energy appliance like a fry pan, the motor speeds ups to compensate, and drops back down to normal speed once the draw is gone. It is reasonably quiet. In the campground we were recently in, we noticed that the big dollar Honda and Yamaha generators were somewhat quieter. However, at this price I can't begin to complain about the volume level. It is certainly acceptable. It did not seem to bother any of our neighbors. We were camping in the mountains at about 8000 feet, and it started every time on the first or second pull of the starter rope. Home Depot was easy to do business with!

I have three of them and have run them for more than 120 hours total. One generator had a failure of the Oil level sensor and the fuel pump stopped working. (LIFAN is providing good support so far.) The second generator cannot meet the same demand as the other two without revving up the motor. (Hard to submit a claim based on how it sounds.) The third generator hasn't given me any problems thus far and I am almost happy with it. It is easy to carry but you have to hold it down when starting it because the pull cord will easily pull it off the ground. (I realized they are a bit small in several ways.) With a 350W load they will need oil about the third tank refill, the oil pan is about as tiny as the generator. (150W they run quite a bit longer between oil warnings.) They consume about the same fuel as a much larger 2KW generator that can run MUCH longer and meet the startup demand of a refrigerator. It's not real loud, but all generators are noisy. This generator would be great for a 2 hour gig to run some lights, maybe a fan and a cash register at a flee market. For a loss of power this unit doesn't run long enough to justify the effort in keeping it running.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy start and quiet. I bought this generator to run the equipment for a shaved ice trailer. The trailer is open air not an enclosed trailer, so a quiet generator is a must to be able to do business. I got the generator, put the oil and gas in along with some ethanol neutralizer stabil. Pressed the primer bulb about 10 times and it statrted on the first pull. We have had it out once last weekend actually in use. It ran for 6 1/2 hours on a tank of gas with the economy switch on. We were steadily busy running the shaver. I had it setting about 9 feet away and you could barely hear it run. I am quite impressed with it. The only thing that would be any negative is that it is cold natured and you have to start it a couple of times to get it warmed up. This only takes a minute and it is then good to go.
