CPO via eBay is selling the Quip-All 2,200 Watt Gas Portable Inverter Generator (CARB) 2200I for $329.99. Shipping is free.

Link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Quip-All-...41ccae4ac8

This generator has parallel capability to plug 2 of them together and double the running output to ~3000W. Since it appears to be a re-branded PowerMate, you can use Powermate's parallel kit found here: https://www.electricgeneratorsdir...77255.html

Judging by the connectors, this one from Home Depot would also work: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Invert.../203695188

The parallel kit gives you (1) L5-30R outlet and an RV outlet.

CPO does not state the warranty, but they say for full warranty details to contact them. You can also buy Assurant warranties as follows:

1-year protection $6.99
2-year protection $13.49
3-year protection $19.98


I personally have no experience with this "re-brand" brand. It is CPO's exclusive re-brand of the PowerMate. The Duromax is also a re-brand of the PowerMate. For someone in a bind due to the recent hurricane and subsequent power outages, this could be a great opportunity to get something on the cheap side. For further protection, one could buy one of the warranties above and have their credit card add 1 year on top of the extended warranty. Amex and others do this. Citibank will add 2 years on top which is even better than Amex.

Powering your home's electrical panel:


i used an interlock kit so i could power my entire panel (all 120V circuits, not at the same time obviously), just for convenience sake. an interlock prevents you from operating the generator with the main circuit on, thus preventing back feeding your panel by accident. Back feeding is when your generator sends electricity back to the outside lines b/c someone forgot to turn the main circuit breaker off. this mistake could (and has) injure or kill a line worker who is out there making repairs. direct feeding a panel without interlock or transfer switch sub panel is illegal due t potential for back feeding. here are some steps regarding interlock. as always, check your local codes for adherence to regulation.

Step 1: Find an interlock kit that's compatible with your panel. Chances are the model in HD/Lowe's will not fit your box without a lot of modification. Here is where I bought mine: http://www.interlockkit.com/

Step 2: Buy a double pole breaker that's compatible with your electrical box. Home Depot or your local electric supply house will have this.

Step 3: Buy generator inlet: http://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Controls-PB30-Generator-Generators/dp/B000BQT47S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&q... [amazon.com]

Step 4: Buy L14-30 to L5-30 adapter cable where both hots are crossed so you can power BOTH sides of your panel even though you have a 120V generator: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...ge_o02_s00 . You could make your own cable for $10, but it's nice to have a factory molded rugged cable that you don't have to worry about. One end of this cable will go into the L14-30 inlet in #3 and the other end gives you a L5-30 connection. See step 5.

Step 5: Buy a 25ft or 50ft L5-30 extension cord (length is up to you). This cord is what will go from your adapter in your inlet in Step 3 to your generator. I bought this: http://www.amazon.com/Conntek-20571-Generator-Extension-Eextension/dp/B003HUYK5Q/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8... [amazon.com] . The reason why I am suggesting that you buy the L5-30 cord instead of a regular 5-15 cord + L5-30 to 5-15 adapter, is to future proof your setup should you ever decide to buy a 2nd Inverter generator and use the parallel kit (which has a L5-30 plug for 3000W output power), it's up to you really and what you think you generator power needs might be in the future. if you only plan on using single 120V inverter gens like this (1 of them), save the money and use a 5-15 cord and a L5-30 to 5-15 adapter

Step 6: Buy L5-30 to 5-15 adapter plug which goes into the generator if you want to run directly from a single generator and not the parallel kit (you should have the option of doing both, as a fall back, so you aren't forcing yourself to run both): http://www.amazon.com/Conntek-Locking-Adapter-Female-Connector/dp/B002YB108Y/ref=sr_1_5?tag=slickdea... [amazon.com]

Step 7: Either do it yourself per the Youtube videos or pay an electrician. You can buy the rest of the materials at Home Depot (romex, wall anchors, conduit, etc). Since you are providing all materials or most of them, the electrician should only be charging you a labor rate. This job should not take longer than 2 hours. If you are running across long distances or through thick masonry...ok add an hour. You should not have to pay more than 2-3 labor hrs for this job. If you want to save money, you can do all of the labor intensive work of mounting the inlet, running the conduit, and running the romex...then all he has to do is install the interlock panel, the double pole breaker for the generator, and make the final connection to your box. Figure he'll charge you (1) labor hour to do all of that. if you have never done anything electrical before, just hire the electrician for peace of mind.






NOTE 1: You will not be able to power any 240V appliances with this generator.Turn OFF all 240V circuits (except the double pole circuit you are using with your generator inlet and interlock). This is to prevent the possibility of overloading the neutral

NOTE 2: i attached photos. don't pay attention to the fact there are (2) inlets. it's b/c where i installed these, it's a multi residence with 2 service panels

NOTE 3: since i had the panels open, i threw on whole house surge protectors. bought them from a slickdeal back in 2012 i think

NOTE 4: you can fit (2) of these on a harbor freight large dolly, using scrap deck boards across.

Any idea how this compares to the Honda eu2000i? It looks very similar. The manual says he engine is a DH80i which I can't find any info online. I was hoping it was a Yamaha or Honda engine.

The price is right though.

Honda EU2000i is the gold standard of inverter generators. They also cost $850-$1000 each

if i was in the market for an inverter and didn't want to spend a lot of money, i think it's worth a shot. the duromax one has been floating around the $350 price point when on sale. both the duromax and this quip-all appear to be re-branded Powermate 2000i inverter generators. neither has gone as low as $329.99 before. for peace of mind i would probably buy one of the assurant warranties, and then with my amex or citibank card get the extra 1-2 years of coverage. i'm not sure what the factory warranty is with this thing. i presume 1 year but CPO does not state.

I missed the last Duromax deal from Newegg (@ $335, with the Masterpass discount) and had been waiting for another deal to show up. So, I'll get this.

The current 8% eBay Bucks promo is good for about another 30 minutes. I'll use the eBay Bucks 'savings' to get a magnetic dipstick (presumably for the Yamaha EF2000iS) & follow Medic311's break-in advice for these sort of generators.

Thanks to Medic311. I'll add to your many reps!

I just had my electrical redone at my house for 40 amp service with two 200 amp panels. Can you please explain how to wire this so I can run some circuits in each panel thanks!

I just bought a Honda EU2000i for 950 shipped from a verified Honda dealer. There was one for 900 but not verified and sketchy (albeit same shipping address as where i bought the generator) 850 is sale price but is rare

Does an inverter generator imply that its a pure sine wave? or is it modified step pattern
