Note that the wattage requirements listed here are estimated averages only. The power requirements of individual devices can vary substantially depending on brand, model, size and so on. Always check the specific requirements of the devices you plan to power.

*These items commonly use induction motors, which may require several times the listed running wattage when starting. The starting, or surge, requirement of a given device determines whether a given inverter generator will be able to power the device. Again, always check the specific requirements of the devices you plan to power.
