The P3000 inverter generator is the latest addition to our PowerSmart Series™ of portable generators and one that I’m extremely excited about. Whether you are a camper who wants to bring quiet portable power to the campsite, a tailgater who wants to provide a phenomenal tailgating experience for their partygoers, an ice fisherman who wants to stay warm, or anyone who wants to keep their cell phones charged and slow cookers warm at their picnics or outdoor activities, this is the perfect generator for you.
What makes this generator so exciting? For starters, it produces only 58 decibels at ¼ load, making it our quietest generator ever. It’s so quiet you can have a normal conversation without raising your voice.
Whether you’re powering your RV, providing heat to your ice fishing shanty, or just charging your cell phone at your tailgate party, this quiet generator features computer-controlled technology that automatically and continuously adjusts engine speed to produce only the amount of power required from it. This reduces fuel consumption and runs up to 80 percent quieter than traditional camping generators. What’s not to like about that?
It’s also the first Briggs & Stratton® inverter generator that offers parallel capabilities, meaning it can connect into another Briggs 3 kW unit for nearly double the backup power. No more worrying at your campsite or tailgate about what can and can’t be operating at the same time. Now you can run your RV air conditioning (something most 2 kW inverter generators can’t do) while using portable appliances or charge cell phones to stay connected while still keeping the lights on.
P3000 Inverter Generator Features
While there are many cool and new inverter generator features on the P3000 and these are a few of my favorites:
- USB charging outlet to keep me connected
- The H-beam handle makes it easy to maneuver by one or two people
- There is a larger fuel tank for longer run times
- LCD StatStation™ display makes it easy to know how much power is being used so you don’t overload the generator, and maintenance reminders such as when to change the oil.

Always Remember Generator Safety
Briggs & Stratton sends out a Safety First campaign twice a year to alert consumers about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning while using a portable generator. Engine exhaust contains CO, a poisonous gas that can kill in minutes. You CANNOT smell it, see it, or taste it. Only use portable generators outside and far away from windows, doors and vents. Direct the small engine exhaust away from potentially occupied spaces. Install CO detectors/alarms in living areas.
