Portable Generators 101

If you’ve ever used a power lawn mower and an extension cord, you’re halfway there. When used properly, portable generators are safe, efficient and easy to use for generating portable power. All portable generators are rated by Running Watts and Starting Watts.

Running Watts – The continuous watts produced to keep items running.

Starting Watts – The momentary electrical current the generator can provide to start electric motors, per Briggs & Stratton 628K. It does not represent the power required to continuously run electrical loads. It is the maximum current that can momentarily be supplied when starting a motor, multiplied by the generator’s rated voltage.
