Inverter Generator Accessories

Along with the numerous generator makes and models available in todays marketplace there is also a plethora of accessories.

Parallel Kits

At some point you may find that your portable inverter generator does not have sufficient capacity to power a demanding load. Parallel kits provide a convenient way to increase load capacity by connecting, usually 2 of the same model, generators together. An alternative would be to buy a bigger generator. One plus to using two smaller generators in parallel for bigger loads is that you still take advantage of the portability of the smaller generators.

Two of the most popular parallel kits currently available for Honda EU series generators are the Reliance HPK2011 30 Amp parallel power kit for the EU2000i and the GenTran 50 AMP 6370C kit for the EU3000i generator. Both kits can easily be installed in under 10 min. Both kit's include built in circuit breakers for overload protection. The Reliance parallel kit also includes a built in analog watt meter.


Generator CoverGenerator Cover

Covers for generators come in all sizes, colors and material. Most manufacturers have covers available for their products and may even include a cover with a new purchase at no extra cost. Generator shelters, similar to a small outdoor storage bin, is another option that can be used to protect your generator from the elements.
