A QUICK PRIMER ON POWER, a.k.a WHICH GENERATOR DO I NEED?

 

When we talk about electricity, we talk in terms of Watts and Amps. Before renting a generator, it’s a good idea to take stock of exactly how many Amps of power you need for all of your various electronics. Some things take a lot, some take a little. You should check your gear specifically, but here are some general reference points:

SPACE HEATER

IRON

HAIR DRYER

STEAMER

SEWING MACHINE

VACCUUM

LAPTOP COMPUTER

STEREO

WIRELESS ROUTER

20 Amps

9 Amps

5 Amps

15 Amps

2 Amps

8 Amps

3 Amps

10 Amps

less than 1 Amp

You will notice on our website for most of our custom electronic equipment we list the Amperage required to safely run – for example the Electric Heat Ray requires a full 20 Amps or a 3000W generator at minimum.

 

So please take the time to check out your equipment before you call us and ask, “What kind of generator do I need?” The answer is always: “It depends what you’re trying to run!”

 

That being said, do feel free to write or call us and we will be happy to help you organize your order and make sure you will have all your bases covered. It’s what we do!
