Three kinds of portable generators

Throughout our daily lives, we require power on numerous occasions. Portable power stations were designed to address people's need for more convenient electricity. We learned about home portable power generators in the previous article. This essay will next go over three more types of portable power stations: camping portable power stations, food truck portable power stations, and construction site portable power stations.

Camping portable generators

If you're camping, you probably don't have much room for a large generator. For basic tent camping, you might consider a small (1 to 2 kW) generator. These are usually small and light enough for one person to carry. They also don't require much gasoline and can fit in the trunk of most cars. Although you will be limited by what the generator can be used for. These generators can power a stereo, TV, or similar electronic device, and they can also provide some lights and a stationary fan or small space heater.

Portable Generators for Food Trucks

If you only need to power a point of sale system and a coffee machine (or similar load), you can equip a food truck with a 1-2 kw generator. However, in most cases, you will probably want to use more appliances. Food truck owners seem to prefer 3–4 kW generators. These are small enough to be practical and provide enough power for a small (under-the-counter) refrigerator, some appliances, necessary electronics, and lighting. The size of the food truck generator used depends entirely on the size of your truck and how much power you need to keep your business running.

Jobsite Portable Generators

Job site needs vary greatly. One thing to consider when using generators for power tools is that they need high starting wattage (peak load). This will also depend on how many people are working at the same time. Several tools that start at the same time will require a very high peak load.

For some drills or similar tools, around 3 KW will be fine. Although most site generators tend to be 5 KW or higher. If you are using a high-power tool, such as an angle grinder, a higher power output will be essential. More importantly, if you are using a table saw or air compressor. An air compressor can be started using any power from 3-6kw.

Once you have decided on the size and type of generator you need, it becomes easier to narrow down your choices based on what you can afford. Because there is such a wide variety of generator brands (with varying prices), imported brands such as Honda and Yamaha are recommended, while domestic brands such as Shanghai and Weichai are also recommended. You can choose gasoline generators or diesel generators, gasoline is more environmentally friendly, and diesel is more durable.
