MILWAUKEE — For many sports fans, it’s “that” time of the year. College and professional football season equate to prime time tailgating season. Tailgater Magazine estimates that 50 million people tailgate annually, most in RVs.
Each year, tailgaters seem to try to compete for the biggest and best tailgates. Besides radios, blenders, and hot plates, it’s not uncommon to find big screen TVs, gaming systems, stereos, and of course, cell phone chargers at a typical tailgate this fall. All of this electronic equipment requires portable power to keep it running, the company noted.
Briggs & Stratton’s PowerSmart Series P3000 inverter generator takes tailgating to a whole new level for sports fans that require a quiet, lightweight, and fuel efficient portable generator to power all of their big game tailgating essentials.
“This fall sports fans can transform their part of the parking lot into a tailgating haven with the quiet, affordable power provided by the new Briggs & Stratton PowerSmart Series P3000 inverter,” said Eric Loferski, director of marketing for Briggs & Stratton Portable Power & Cleaning Systems. “Along with its ability to provide super quiet power, the P3000 inverter is also lightweight, easy to transport and maneuver, has great run time and offers more power than the common 2,000-watt generator.”
The PowerSmart Series P3000 inverter generator delivers consistent power to run everything from the most basic tailgate essentials to higher-wattage items including:
Crock-pots (240 watts) and hot plates (1,200 watts)
Food processors (500 watts), small refrigerators (550 watts) and microwaves (1000 watts)
Blenders (1200 watts) and coffee makers (1,300 watts)
Big-screen and projector televisions (200-1,000 watts), CD/DVD players (100 watts) and radios (10 watts)
Electric griddles (1,500 watts) or an 8-inch electric stove (2100 watts)
Light bulbs (60-75 watts/each) and outdoor light strings (250 watts)
X-Box, Game-Cube or Playstation (40 watts)
Cell phone, iPhone, iPod and iPhone battery chargers (5-25 watts)
For tailgaters who need even more power, the P3000 is the first and only inverter unit from Briggs & Stratton to offer parallel capabilities, enabling tailgaters to connect two P3000 units together for nearly double the power, yet still operating at very quiet levels, Loferski explained.
