Portable Generators, Portable Inverter Generators, and Related Devices

If you list products on our store, you must comply with all federal, provincial/territorial, and local laws and our policies applicable to those products and product listings, including this policy.

Portable Generators, Portable Inverter Generators, and Related Devices covered by this policy

A Portable Generator is a fuel powered engine or motor that converts chemical energy directly to an AC electrical output. Portable Generators are designed to be carried, pulled or pushed by a person. Portable Generators may also include Portable Inverter Generators, which are more complex fuel-powered generators that include a built-in AC inverter. Portable Power Inverters convert a DC electrical signal supplied by a solar panel or an internal battery, to an AC electrical output.
