Generators produce electricity and inverters convert DC current to AC current. So what is an inverter generator? An inverter generator is a device that combines both of these features: it produces AC power but then converts it to DC and then the built-in inverter converts it back to AC. That technique smooths out the peaks and drops that occur throughout power generation due to small variations that occur in engine speed and other problems.
This results in “cleaner” power that is safer for electronics and can even make electric motors run more efficiently and quietly. See our articles “What is an Inverter Generator?” and “Inverter vs Generator” for more information.
Quick Tip: If you’re willing to put up with noisier operation and don’t need an inverter, you can get about twice the (still relatively clean) power for not much more money with the Honda EG4000.
