What is the difference between portable home generators and home standby generators or home backup generators?
The word "portable".
Nothing about home standby generators or home backup generators implies portability or maneuverability. Those are big and heavy and fixed in place.
What Can You Do With Portable Home Generators?
Yes, you can plug your RV, trailer or motorhome into the 30 amp outlet of a generator. Is this giving you some ideas of what you can do with one of these units?
What if you’re at an outdoor party, like tailgating at football or soccer games? You could be the only one out there with electricity as you make your own with a portable home generator.
Get the picture? They don’t have to be only for home use. However, if your power goes off at home and you have one of these ready to go, then you can run your appliances still. As long as the capacity of the generator is high enough to handle the powering up surge of the appliances combined load.
Job sites: Run power tools off the back of your truck! Even a smaller and more quiet portable generator like an IG3500 will work for this purpose.
Imagine generating electricity at any of myriad possibilities. Emergency and evacuation situations, food trucks, camp sites, cottages, tiny houses, van dwelling (yes, it’s a thing), boondocking, outdoor vendors, living off-grid, fishing, sports, house boats, RV’s, utility trailers, the shed in your back yard. You can make your own power ANYWHERE!
