Questions & Answers

Where can one find the battery

Asked by: Leo
I got mine on eBay, just do a search for "CB9-B-FP battery " , make sure the seller has at least a 99% rating. One thing with this generator , the battery box they supply won't fit near the starter, it has to be mounted on the back side and the battery cable has to be extended to reach that far, just cut the red cable into and solder a cable of the same gauge in between. Also the mounting arms need to be drilled out more to fit the supplied bolts.

LIFAN Energy Storm 4,000/3,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator with Wheel Kit is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay Cons:1. Owners Manual: The generator doesn't include the owner manual, you can download a PDF version on Lifan site but there are 2 manuals on the site for the same generator model with different instructions. The manual is very hard to understand and some instructions are confusing. 2. Instructions: Some labels on the generator contradicts the owner manual for example a label on the generator indicates that the oil amount should be 20 ounces but the online manual indicates 32 ounces. 3. Registration: Is 2017 and Lifan ask you to send the product registration by mail. They don't offer a online registration form. 4. Noise: This thing make a lot of noise. 5. Battery: You need to buy a hard to find ATV battery.6. Fuel consumption: it consumed aprox. 4 gallons of gasoline in 4 hours (2 AC inverter 12btu, 1 fridge, 1 TV, 5 led bulbs, 2 ceiling fans) Pro:1. Price: 7500 continuous kw for $650. A bargain. 2. Power: The generator did handle all the load of my appliance including inverter ac, microwave, stove TV, bulbs and refrigerator. 3. Functionality: Easy to start using the electric start.

I needed a generator with electric start, this one has electric start but no battery to make the electric start work, there is supposed to be some kind of 12volt cable I did not get in the package, the wire provided is not long enough to reach where I think is the battery position - but I have only been tinkering with this about 3 weeks, I see nowhere for the battery holding box. I did use this with pull starting and it operates fine as a generator, it looks identical to a generac I had which was stolen but the picture of my generac did not show the battery but I will arrive at a solution before it snows and the remote starting will be most helpful, otherwise great generator. The picture here showing the bump behind the frame with no protection of any kind and the rolled up red wire that goes only halfway to that place is a good picture for the engineering staff to use to solve this problem, what is probably needed is aiming the outlets to the rear and getting the battery in where the oversize control panel is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Power, Small footprint, Electric Start This generator runs most of our 3 story home during an outage. We can run the well pump, refrigerator, furnace, a couple flat screens and lights with no problem. I really try not to push the limits by using unnecessary electronics but I'm sure we could use more. The footprint of this unit is smaller than expected. It's narrow enough to go through a doorway which means we can roll it out to the back without removing the wheels or having to go all the way around the house. This is especially critical during a snow storm. Also, I assume the smaller footprint is one of the reasons why this unit is also considered "RV Ready". My unit was not shipped with a manual, however the manufacturer sent me one without question. This electric start generator does not come with a battery or the required 32oz. of 10w-30 motor oil. To find out which battery you need, the manual points you to the battery chart which lists model number "12N12A-4A-1" which is a wet pack battery made for motorcycles, but you can just search for a 12V-12ah battery (5.3125 in x 3.1875 in) and there are many to choose from. If you choose not to purchase a battery you can always use the pull start. Ours starts right up with one pull and it runs smooth. I recommend it for sure.

I wanted to purchase this in August 2017 before the US southeast was pummeled by 3 Hurricanes. I waited until they came back in stock in December. The unit arrived with, yes you guessed it, a broken Air cleaner cover, as reported in multiple reviews. ( I contacted Lifan and they sent out a replacement with in a week.) I proceeded to attache the handles, wheels and feet. Only the side of the cover was broken so the filter would still work. I added fuel and oil and it cranked the first pull. I t runs smooth and is alot quieter that many other Generators I have been around. I have not used it yet but will update after the first test. The broken part is the only reason I did not give 5 Stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good customer support Assembled the generator, added oil, gas, battery and called customer support for a manual (not supplied). It fired right up and popped, banged, scared the dogs and finally wouldn't start at all. Called customer service. "unhook the yellow wire coming out of the side of the engine. That's the low oil shut off. Its been in storage a while and needs to be run for an hour or so." I did so and it started and ran just fine. I also hooked up the low oil wire again. It still runs fine. You can buy the battery at a motorcycle shop or on line. If you buy on line be sure to buy one with the battery acid included (you add that yourself).

I've put it together and tested it. I can't give it five stars, because it did not come with printed directions, you will have to study the pieces carefully. The online instructions had the handle and wheel assembly installation backwards. One bolt was too long to attach the support leg by the battery box, I had to cut the bolt down for everything to fit easily. Read the instructions on the engine as to how much oil to put in. The online instructions I found said it needed 32 ounces of oil, the label on the engine said it required 22 ounces. Measure the battery holder box before you buy the battery so that you don't buy a battery that is too big. It took about 2 hours to put together correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a little loud After my generator took a tumble off my trailer I needed to get another, and this was a good replacement. It has plenty of power for what I need at 5500 watts, and plenty of outlets. The only thing I can complain about is that this one is a little louder than my other one was. It's not obnoxiously loud, but it is noticeable. I have to say, for a brand I wasn't familiar with, this seems to be a good generator. Keep in mind, that you will need to purchase a battery to use the electric start feature. they are, however a common size and easy to find.
