will this power a 5000 btu window unit ac ?

The standard 5000 BTU AC unit has a running wattage of around 450W. That being said, the iGen1200 should provide ample enough power to run your AC unit.

Hi, will this power a pellet stove?

Asked by goat October 20, 2018

It should. The blowers on most pellet stoves use 100w to 200w. You should check to see how much power your igniter uses to start the fire. I have one of the more common pellet stoves H****N and I think the igniters use less than 500w for a few minutes to start the fire and then your just using the blowers.

Do you have this type of generator in stock at the Sebastian store?

Asked by dezi January 30, 2018

Yes but don't buy!

can this unit power a sump pump

Asked by 07031 November 2, 2017

Depending on the size. But most sump pumps use over 2000 watts to start than the used drops to under a 1000 watts. I would use a generator with at least 2500 watts.

Customer review from logo
got this to have as a emergency back up on our boat. I ran it a 1/2 hour then dumped oil, ran it it a second 1/2 hour dumped oil then 2 more 1/2 hour runs (changing oil after each but with a load on generator). So far unit is great. Unnecessarily messy oil change and checking the oil (on a flat surface) with exactly .26 qt still spills?

I love this little generator
Customer review from logo
I bought this for auxiliary power and the ability to charge batteries while camping on rainy/snowy days or whenever daylight is not enough for solar charge. I bought this little one for the weight (I am not that strong to heft these things around), and it provides the quiet amps I need. Thanks!
