IG2600 SPARK GENERATOR
This is the biggest model in our suitcase range, and will give you maximum continual power of 2100 watts.
In typical caravan use this will be able to charge up your leisure battery your mobile phones and lap tops and most other tablet devices. This is ideal to power your microwave and also the “good ladies” hair drier. It would also allow you to use an air conditioning unit, or a home size kettle but with these larger applications care must be taken to use them individually so as not to overload the generator,
With this machine your caravan battery will charge in the same time as if connected to the hook up on site or at home, it is the battery charger in you caravan that determines the recharge time, not the size of the generator. Also a quick tip, if you are looking to watch TV, use your leisure battery through the evening and re charge the battery in the day time. This way will be quieter during the evening hours and you will run the generator for fewer hours in the morning using less fuel and keeping the running hours low.
A full tank would normally last about 5 hours on a full load, but will typically run for 6 to 7 hours in normal use, the machine also comes with integral overload protection, so if you accidentally overload the machine it will automatically cut the power, this ensures that you do accidentally damage any of the components but it is a fail-safe device and should not be relied on in day to day use. TAKE CARE and ensure you only connect loads suitable for this machine.
So this is the largest machine in the suitcase range, it will run microwaves, kettles and will power up air conditioning units or smaller compressors. It will happily power up the tyre warmers in motor sport activities.
If you have a power-cut at home the IG 2600 would be suitable to back up your fridge and freezer and provide the power to run the central heating and still have enough in reserve to provide lighting and still watch TV as well. You need to make provision for how you would connect to your property in the event of a power cut. The only recommended method is to have a manual transfer switch fitted by a registered electrician. In this way the house can be isolated from the National Grid during the power cut allowing the generator to be safely used. When the power is restored simply switch back to the national grid and turn off and store the generator.
If you are using this IG2600 on a boat, this will run your main lights and also charge your battery, it will be useful in the galley to power the microwave or fridge and will power up most domestic washing machines. It will be able to provide power to your Victron or Sterling inverter unit allowing them to charge your batteries at up to 80 amps. Care needs to be taken while charging batteries to make sure you do not take extra power through your ring main which could lead to overloading of this machine.
So overall our largest suitcase machine seen by many people as the idea travelling companion in most caravanning , boating or motor sport activities. Its light weight at 22Kgs makes moving the machine to site an easy lift. This machine will also provide a good level of support for home use during power failures.
