The outlets on this unit include (2) 120 V, 20-amp, 3 prong; (1) 120/240 volt, 30-amp twist-lock; (1) 12 volt, 10-amp utility. This unit is perfect for power outages in the home, but it is most popular use is on job sites. Its price, portability, and 120/240 volt, 30-amp twist lock makes it perfect for high powered tools such as saws and drills. Others also prefer to use it for camping (due to it being a quiet generator it is safe to use in U.S. National Parks).
In the box you will receive the Duromax XP4400E-CA generator, battery for electric starter, wheel kit, generator took kit, and operator instructions. The unit has a one year limited warranty (see owner’s manual for further details).


This particular generator has many advantages. It is carb compliant meaning it can be sold in all fifty states. At 160 pounds, it is easier than other generators when it comes to lifting it onto the wheel kit. It starts as easily as a car with its electric start. The recoil (pull) start is handy for when the battery isn’t fully charged. It is also EPA approved and runs much quieter than most generators at 69 dBA, the muffler is considered very quiet. The low oil protection system will automatically shut off this generator when it runs out of oil to protect the unit from damage. Other safety features include AC and DC regulators and a spark arrestor.

Although officially it runs up to 8 hours at half load, customers have reported this unit running as long as 12 hours. The unit has a 15 amp circuit breaker which means there are never any worries about overloads. The volt meter shows the generator’s output range and the battery indicator light shows when the starter battery is charging.


Some customers may consider the generator to be loud. However, keep in mind generators are known to be noisy. This unit is quieter than most others. Customers who have purchased this unit warn that the oil reservoir is easy to overflow. This unit will not run an entire household, but then again it isn’t claiming to do so. It is quite efficient for running the important items a home needs during an outage (i.e. lights, fridge).


Whether using it for power outages at home, on a job site, or camping, the Duromax XP4400E-CA will get the job done quietly, efficiently, and best of all at an affordable price.
