Pulsar G450RN Portable Inverter Generator

Pulsar G450RN power generator is powered by a 224cc gasoline engine, ensuring 3700 Running Watts and 4500 Starting Watts.

The gas tank features a capacity of 3.4 gallons (~12.9 liters), providing enough fuel for 11h of operation at 50% load.

The engine comes with remote start, electric start, and as backup, manual recoil start - the remote start feature allows the user to start the unit from a distance of 80 feet (~24m) which is a great feature that can come in handy in many situations.

The unit features fully enclosed construction keeping the noise levels relatively low at 64dB.

The list of receptacles includes:

  • AC: 120V Duplex 5-20R, 120V 30A TT-30R,
  • DC: 12V 8A, USB 5V 2.1A.

Note: A 12V 8A battery charger should be used to charge medium lead-acid batteries. If you are going to charge large deep-cycle batteries, especially large(r) deep-cycle lithium batteries that may be charged with 20-50+ Amps, use a dedicated battery charger and connect it to one of the 120V AC ports. Also, Pulsar G450RN is strong enough to power more than one such battery charger...

For example:

If the Pulsar G450RN power generator operates at 50% load (1850W) and is powering a high-power battery charger with 85% energy efficiency, it can be used to recharge ~17kWh during its 11h of operation on a single battery charge.

This 17kWh can be used to recharge deep-cycle batteries, for example, 29V (two 12V batteries connected in series charged to 14.5V each) and ~585Ah battery pack. And that is a lot of energy ...

The physical dimensions of the generator are (L x W x H) 27.5 x 21 x 23.5 inches (~70 x 54 x 60 cm), and it weighs ~102 pounds (~46.2 kg) dry.

Pulsar G450RN power generator comes with built-in handles that allow two adults to lift and even carry the unit to very short distances.

But, the unit also comes with a very convenient telescopic handle which, combined with a pair of transport wheels, allows one adult to easily pull the unit to shorter distances.

One of the very important Pulsar G450RN features is that it is an inverter generator, meaning that:

  • it features Eco-Mode for improved fuel economy in certain situations,
  • it is a parallel-ready unit,
  • it provides output AC voltage with relatively low THD levels.

Also, Pulsar G450RN comes with standard safety features, including 3 indicator LEDs (Output Ready, Overload, Low Oil), electric breakers, etc.

Pulsar G450RN portable inverter power generator comes with a limited 3-year warranty and is EPA, CARB, CSA certified.

Also, it comes at a rather acceptable price.

Pulsar G450RN doesn't support dual-fuel operation, it doesn't come with Bluetooth/WiFi connectivity, it doesn't feature Carbon Monoxide (CO) sensor/alarm, etc., but all in all, it is a good product, simple to use, and maintain.

Note: when the unit arrives, be sure to read the manual/Owner's Guide thoroughly in order to familiarize yourself with a new power generator. Also, keep the Owner's Guide close by, just in case. And always, but really always, use your power generator outside - the open garage door, for example, is NOT outside.
