Easy, Compact, High-Quality Solution to Intermittent Power Loss At Home

We got ours installed this past week with the home integration kit, and it works like a charm! So easy. Idle the car outside the garage, plug the generator into the house, visit our electric panel, flip one or more transfer switches, and our furnace, fridge, freezer, and/or sump pump is seamlessly running off the CarGenerator. Beautiful!

A Wonderful Device

I bought one and my friend Jonathan Schloo came over to my house and hooked up a prototype, easily done by someone comfortable with a little bit of DIY.

Excellent Service

Jonathan provided superb support. Does exactly what I wanted it to do. Highly recommend.

Brilliant!

Great service and product! Will write more after installed annd used. Thank you!

Good alternative to standby generator

Ever since the 2021 heat dome in B.C. resulted in record temperature of 47C, I'm sold on the idea of climate change. Although the Car Generator can't power an A.C. in an emergency but it comes in handy during winter. It is more than enough to power the furnace so you're pretty much covered for three seasons. Sure, a standby generator will cover everything but it's not suitable for everyone especially when properties are so close with each other like in Vancouver. The noise; air pollution and bylaw complaints are just too much hassle. Never mind the cost of having one setup.
The idea of hooking up your vehicle to your house as a power resource in an emergency is a brilliant idea. Every household already own part of a generator but not knowing how to connect the dot. This is where Car Generator shine and it definitely solved my backup generator need.

Excellent device; I just wish it could handle more.

I wish it could handle a small oven, or small heater. It handles the tvs and lights just fine.

Tested Car Generator

Hooked up Car Generator to charge my Lion Safari ME. Works great Safari ME was 89% and I charged to 100% in 5 minutes. Output Amps from 2020 Chevy 2500 HD was 13.9 amps. Love Product so far and looking forward to using it for future camping excursions.

Asking me to Review Something I Haven't Received Yet?

Little early to be asking for a review when I'm still waiting for delivery. Ask again in a week or two!

Received Product as delivered. Everything looks great. Packaging was fine. Have not installed product for use yet.

Amazing freedom from expensive electric sites

We have had the best time with our quiet, convenient CarGenerator. We have a 16 foot AirStream Bambi and like to dry camp in unique places as well as National and State Parks where there are few amenities. Many of these places won't let you use a traditional generator, we don't like them either. Our solar hook up doesn't even come close to meeting our needs and so much of the time the sites are shaded or it's cloudy. The CarGenerator has done everything promised. We have been able to keep our batteries charged and even charged my E-Bike at the same time. We have had some puzzling issues with our batteries and the CarGenerator has given us peace of mind knowing we can charge the unreliable battery at anytime without bothering people with the noise of a traditional generator. It is so light and easy to use, quiet and reliable. The customer service is beyond great. Jonathan Schloo is responsive and available to answer questions personally. This is a GREAT product.

Great Product

A light weight, compact and versatile replacement for heavy, gas or propane guzzling generators. No bottles or cans to haul around Love it and highly recommend,

Instructions for installing the home integration kit were good. Everything went together well and tested ok. Havn't had a power outage to need to use the set up yet.

Unit looks great. Haven't used it in the field.

Received as ordered

Waiting to install the plug to my heater and then I will be ready for a bad storm

It works as promised

The on/off switch should be on the outside of the unit and it should be bigger and easier to see, so should be the electrical plugs. To have them underneath the unit is very awkward. Other then that, it works.

New user

Haven’t used the 1000 under normal conditions yet, but have run test to check it out. Works great, will put it to the real test in a couple weeks while boondocking for a week.

Performs As Advertised

My primary reason for purchasing the CarGenerator was to provide power to my travel trailer when boondocking. We were boondocking in Maine last weekend which provided me the opportunity to try it out. As long as I was careful with not running high current draw devices at the same time, it worked fantastically. It ran the microwave, TV and provided the power for my converter to charge my batteries. I am very happy with your product.

Winter

Got it to run my furnace and more won't get a chance to try it on my furnace till October I will let you know how it works then but have used it on some lights and fridge and worked great.

Car Generator

Products as advertised but haven't used to date....however you have to improve your free delivery time, a bit to long for my liking. My visa payment in full came due before receiving products ........backorder far to long.

2000/4000 Watt Cargenerator

It works as advertised. It is a great idea. For improvement, an 30 amp outlet on the car generator would be helpful. I want not to need to take my heavy gas generator around.

CarGenerator

This is a great generator. It was so easy to setup and works fantastic. It is lightweight and very compact. This generator does everything it is advertised to do. In my opinion, it’s the best generator out there.

LOVE THIS PRODUCT

After using the CarGenerator for a season I am totally pleased. It has saved us many times. We have had lots of difficulties with our batteries and what we think is a parasite. The CarGenerator has allowed us to camp and travel while we try and figure out what is drawing down our power. Excellent product!

Dry generator works great~

I received this generator and promptly hooked it up to see how it works. Simple to use and efficient. Powered everything I tested out my Airstream. Can’t wait to get it out on the road where I really need it when boondocking at Harvest Hosts and the like. I’ll be the envy of others who have their large, heavy, noisy and gas using generators!!! I’m sure.

Exceptional, Ingenious Product

I was thinking about buying a Generac back up generator until I saw this. With few power losses here in Saskatchewan, I saved quite a bit of $$ by not buying a Generac. Plus, with it being portable, I can take it with us to the cabin at the lake!
