Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Customer Service! Westinghouse has the best customer service I've ever contacted! Very little wait time, talk to a real person who was very knowledgeable. Turns out my starting issue was due to a tad too much oil (I put the whole container in it they supplied, but they told me sometimes there can be left over oil that didn't all drain out from testing). After draining a very small amount, it easily starts now. I can't believe how pleasant my experience contacting Westinghouse was. I will not hesitate to purchase more products from them. They back them up! This generator is quite and runs smoothly. After contacting customer service to troubleshoot my starting issue and getting the oil level right, it's run flawlessly for the 5 months I used it last summer. I purchased this little generator in June of 2020. I used it all summer to charge the trolling motor batteries on my boat that was docked at a marina without power. Worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed Generator has exceeded my expectations. Easy to carry. Powered a small compressor and work light for six hours with fuel to spare. Starts consistently on the first pull. Is surprisingly quiet. Will be using it for some camping trips and the noise level is well below what I'm used to from a small generator. Overall looks like an excellent product for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little Generator! I have owned this generator for almost a year now and it has never failed to start and perform. I do lots of dry camping and it sure comes in handy to power lights, charge batteries, electric coffee pot, etc.

We purchased a 2020 travel trailer with dual 100 AH deep cell batteries. Will connecting a 110 V shore power line to this unit recharge the batteries? How long will it take to fully charge the batteries from 80% discharge.
Asked by: NoStanley
Unfortunately, without knowing the power requirements of the battery charger, we cannot determine if it will be able to recharge your batteries to the full extent.

will this power a 5000 btu window unit ac ?
Asked by: marc
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?

Hi, will this power a pellet stove?
Asked by: goat
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.
