Remember when you had clean and quiet portable power? the WEN 3,100 watt Inverter generator produces clean energy free of voltage spikes and drops without making all of the noise of a regular generator. Generate 3100 surge watts and 2800 rated watts of power. Our 212 cc 4-stroke air-cooled OHV engine operates at an extremely quiet 57 decibels at quarter load, about as quiet as a window air conditioner or the average conversation. Designed to mirror a pure sine wave, this generator limits total harmonic distortion to under 0.3 percent at no load and under 1.2 percent at full load, making it safe enough to run laptops, cellphones, monitors, tablets and other vulnerable electronics. The lightweight design along with the built-in wheels and collapsible handle make for easy portability while the ultra-efficient 1.Gallon tank provides over 7.5 hours of half-load run time. This fully-packed panel comes equipped with two three-prong 120V receptacles, one AC 120V 30a NEMA twist lock receptacle, one 12V DC receptacle and two 5V USB ports. Maximize fuel economy by engaging the WEN 3100 watt Inverter generator's eco-mode switch. This feature allows the generator's Motor to automatically adjust its fuel consumption as items are plugged and unplugged from the panel, preventing the usage of unnecessary gasoline. Need more energy? easily link up two WEN Inverter generators using a WEN 56421 parallel connection kit (sold separately) in order to share wattage between multiple units. Low-oil and low-fuel automatic shutdown with indication lights along with overload protection safeguard both your generator and your electronics from damage. And because this is a WEN product, your Inverter generator comes backed by a 2-year warranty, a nationwide network of skilled service technicians and a friendly customer helpline. Remember when your generator powered your electronics safely and quietly? remember WEN.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I ordered this on a whim last Friday morning at appx. 10 am and I received it around noon on Saturday. I used the Prime shipping option, Not overnight. I was pretty pleased about that, even with Prime, I usually get my goods about in about 4 days because of the little town I live in. I looked everywhere online for reviews on this particular model and I could not find a single one so for the price, I decided to take a shot in the dark and order it. It was packaged tight and secure, came with battery charging cables, and a user friendly manual. It did not come with oil, not a huge deal to me, although a lot of other gen's do come with. The manual does say that there is a dipstick for checking the oil which mine does not have. Those are my only 2 cons about this nice machine. I filled with oil using a measuring cup, filled with gas and it literally started on the first pull, I was amazed. I ran it on the fuel saving mode for a couple of hours to break it in. I then used it that evening...
The Pro's: 1) Price (on sale) 2) Construction for the price. 3) Run time estimate is fairly close to advertised 4) Fairly easy to maintain. 5) Very portable. 6) Fairly quite for the price. (It's no Honda) 7) Output fairly accurate. (hz was 59.99, voltage was ~123) (See below)
Cons: 1) It's a very dirty engine. Filed with fresh oil (SAE30) and gas, ran the unit for ~4 hours with a 1350w load on full tank of gas. Ambient temperature was 55F. Drained the oil (which I do on every new product that uses oil after the first tank of gas) and WOW. I've provided some pictures. I'm hoping that most of that is from manufacturing, and will be much cleaner the 2nd time around.. We shall see. 2) There is no fuel valve. I knew this going in, but it's still nice to be able to run the carb. empty after a short runs. 3) The implementation of the eco-run system is a joke. Any load greater than 1K requires you to turn it off. So if you plan on...
I currently have a Yamaha EF2000is. I saw the WEN on hot deals recently and couldn't pass it up for the price. I could have bought two of these and had change for what I paid for the Yamaha. The reason that I purchased the WEN is that the engine is a Yamaha clone, it's very similar inside, and the wiring diagrams are virtually the same so that I believe I can parallel the two generators. It's made in China, but the Yamaha has a label inside that it's made in China also. Smarter tools also has the Yamaha engine but they lablel theirs "Powered By Yamaha". I don't know if WEN licenses this engine or if it's a knockoff. I'm betting that both units might be made side by side in the same Chinese factory.
I've received it and have run it a couple of days and really like it. First of all it's very attractive. Inside it seems to have nearly the quality level of the Yamaha although there are differences. The engine is the same design but it has a dipstick whereas...
