Best Portable Generator for Emergencies

July 2, 2024      

Power outages are more than just an inconvenience; especially for vulnerable populations, they can be downright dangerous. You may be perfectly comfortable not using electronics for hours on end, but sometimes a generator is necessary to prevent food from going bad for days, to run medical devices, or to heat or cool the house during extreme temperatures. While a power outage may leave you literally caught in the dark, you can still be prepared by buying a portable generator.

Generators consist of two major components: an engine and an alternator. The engine turns the alternator, producing AC (alternating current) power that goes through a voltage regulator to deliver 120 volts or 240 volts, as required. AC power is what is distributed and used in our homes; what's more, just about anything we can plug in at home can be powered by a generator, making it a pragmatic purchase year-round.

Generac 6500-Watt Gas-Powered Portable Generator

This Generac generator arrives with PowerRush advanced technology, which promises a 40 percent increased starting capacity. The gas tank holds 6.9 gallons, and at 50% usage, it can run up to 10.5 hours. Plus its on-board CO detector keeps everyone safe by shutting down the generator if levels get too high. A wheel kit is included, as well as a three-year warranty.
