800 Watt Inverter Generator
This Inverter Generator Can Go With You Almost Anywhere
This amazingly lightweight, quiet and compact unit is so portable; you can take it with you almost anywhere. It is a perfect companion for fishing trips, hunting trips, camping trips, tailgating, outdoor cooking and backup power generation. An industry-first circulating fuel pump permits this generator to operate at extremely high ambient temperatures which is ideal for activities during the summer in sand and on asphalt.
Circulating Fuel Pump
Other generators of similar size lose power at elevated operating temperatures because the fuel boils in the fuel supply line. The Porta Source IG800W uses a circulating fuel pump which constantly moves fuel through the fuel system and back to the fuel tank eliminating air bubbles in the fuel supply. This keeps the unit at rated power even in extremely hot conditions.
At 14 hours per gallon the fuel efficient IG800W runs for hours without needing a refill. There is no need to wake up in the middle of the night to refuel this generator while trickle charging your boat batteries or providing auxiliary power for low wattage night lights. The economy mode feature automatically adjusts fuel consumption and noise to the electrical load applied. Needing less fuel also means needing less space. In many cases an extra fuel can isn’t needed which saves room when packing equipment for day trips.
Lightweight and Tough
At a dry unit weight of 18.5 pounds this generator is 25 percent lighter than similar wattage generators. The small, lightweight IG800W is perfect for taking with you to those remote places where larger power sources would be cumbersome. A convenient carrying handle and impact resistant shell made from talc filled polypropylene stand up to back-country abuse.
At 58 (decibels) there’s no need to set your inverter generator long distances from your activity. The Porta Source IG800W is designed to be quiet with a cast iron exhaust header, noise-cancelling air intake, multi-chambered muffler, noise-suppressing housing and vibration-dampening feet. This unit is a perfect companion for activities where walls are thin and neighbors are in close proximity.
Keep the clutter off of your garage floor by storing this compact unit on a shelf or in a storage cabinet. Compact construction also has benefits during transport and use. This generator will fit easily in the trunk of a vehicle or on an ATV. It is well-suited for storing in your boat and charging the trolling motor batteries between tournaments.
Pure Sine Wave With Overload Protection
The IG800W Inverter Generator is gentle on your sensitive electronic devices. It eliminates the choppy, surging power that a less sophisticated generator will deliver by producing a “pure sine wave”. Another electrical safety feature includes an instant reset circuit breaker which provides immediate power after an overload condition instead of waiting for a thermal reset switch to cool off. Both of these features allow you to charge your cell phone, your electronic tablet, or even your laptop with confidence knowing that the vital internal components are protected.
Easy to Start
A compression release on the surface of a single-lobe cam make pull starting easy. Cold starting and starting after fuel depletion are also easy due to a built-in primer bulb that gives the engine immediate fuel supply.

The industry-first circulating fuel pump permits this generator to operate at extremely high ambient temperatures. At the core of this lightweight wonder is a 40CC pushrod overhead valve engine. Oil consumption is greatly reduced by seals on both the intake and exhaust valves. A three-ring piston also minimizes oil consumption. Low oil consumption makes for a clean and efficient power plant.
Oversized crankshaft bearings and a forged crankshaft provide hundreds of hours of minimal-maintenance operation. An oversized oil sump and circulating fuel pump keep this unit cool which is also vital for extending engine life. The low oil shutdown protects the engine from running dry of oil which would destroy the machine. Copper windings and permanent magnets drive AC power into the inverter cell which is potted with epoxy for resisting dirt, water, and other solvents that may come in contact with the on-board computer. The air cleaner and muffler are specifically designed to cancel sound from both the intake and exhaust. A cast iron exhaust manifold keeps both combustion heat and noise captured in the combustion chamber.
The entire generator enclosure and rubber feet are specifically designed for sound and vibration dampening. The shell is constructed of talc-filled polypropylene and includes a convenient carrying handle. The AC power output is a pure sine wave. Pure sine wave output and the overload circuit breaker protect sensitive electronics from dirty power and power surges. In the box is a generator, instruction manual, the world’s best Philips screw driver (PN 16192), 12V charging cable with battery clamps, and a spark plug socket wrench.
