Hyundai 3200W Inverter Generator
The HY3200SEI is a compact and portable inverter generator from Hyundai.
Providing a convenient and cost-effective source of power, this quiet inverter generator has an impressive maximum output of 3200w / 3.2kW, and continuous power rating of 2800w / 2.8kW.
Caravan and Camping Generator
With its powerful 210cc 4-stroke easy-start recoil Hyundai petrol engine, the HY3200SEI is able to produce up to 3200w / 3.2kW and is more than capable of powering televisions, heaters, air pumps for inflatable beds, laptops, phone chargers, lights, power tools, etc.
Using the latest low-noise engine technology, the HY3200SEI produces only 54 dBA @ 7m to minimise any distruptions or disturbances to your friends and family, as well as others near you on a tent or caravan site.
Fitted with a robust inverter board that can handle extreme inductive loads applied when using power tools with high start-up currents, making it also suitable for infrequent use in a home workshop.
Sine Wave Output
Able to produce a pure sinewave output, this means that this petrol generator can safely power all sensitive electronics, such as TVs, laptops, etc, without the risk of damaging or overloading them.
The control panel features two 230v sockets for use with any appliances which use a standard 3-pin 13A UK mains plug, as well as a 12v 5 amp outlet, allowing you to power multiple things at the same time, such as a fridge, a kettle and phone charger.
This inverter generator weighs just 35kg so can be easily stored in the back of your car, van or garage. Its folding front handle, moulded rear handle and heavy-duty rear wheels also makes transportation easy across a variety of surfaces.
As this inverter generator is so quiet and compact, it's ideal for use whilst staying in a large caravan or motorhome, or for use with a horse lorry, allowing you to take both modern luxuries and home comforts with you wherever you go.
Easy To Use Generator
This inverter generator is really easy to use, making it extremely popular for powering family holidays, and it’s also built with low maintenance requirements for cost-effective, fuss-free power whilst away from home.
The HY3200SEI features a full LCD display - which shows the voltage, frequency and hour count - making it easy to monitor how your generator is performing at a glance.
Already an economical generator, the HY3200SEI also has the added benefit of an 'ECO' mode which, when selected, will lower the engine revs to match only the load being applied, which in turn increases the fuel economy, lowers the noise produced and extends the lifespan of the engine.
Digital overload protection will shut the generator down if devices exceeding 3.2kW start-up or 2.8kW continuous output are plugged into the generator. It also features low oil shutdown which turns off the generator should the oil levels drop too far.
3 Year Warranty
For ultimate peace of mind, this generator is covered by Hyundai's 3 year platinum domestic warranty* / 1 year commercial warranty* (terms apply) with UK parts and service backup to maintain your petrol inverter generator for years to come.
Inverter Generator Use
Please note that inverter generators are specially designed for leisure use - for weekend getaways, holidays or emergency standby use. These generators are not suitable for continuous daily use or as an off-grid power supply.
For heavy-duty commercial use, we recommend a conventional 3000rpm petrol generator.
Petrol generators must never be used inside due to risk of carbon monoxide poisioning. Please ensure you are fully aware of the danger of operating a generator. To visit our safety page, click here.

This was bought as a standby for our bigger HDY6000SE back up genset that is having some grounding issues at the moment. I had to commission this small genset upon delivery but that was no issue. Battery connection was easy, oil filling simple with the 200ml oil filler. I poured in five litres of unleaded and after a few pulls on the recoil starter it ran. We had power :) Every time after this it starts immediately on the key or remote starter. Not light, but given it can deliver about 3.5kVA from an inverter this is acceptable! Easy to transport with the handle and wheels at the rear. Not caravan site quiet but quiet enough for our uses. We run our vintage jukeboxes from it, we run gardening kit from the genset, it has suppled prime power to our house for a while whilst I rewired the consumer unit. Great support from the staff at Genpower when I needed a replacement remote starter fob. If only all suppliers were this ethical about after sales support. Thank you all. I wanted the P4000i as this could be connected to another P4000i in parallel to double power delivery but none were in stock sadly, but all in all, a great little performer.
We were looking for a small back up generator for my folks. Covid lockdown, zombie apocalypse and all that... We already have a 6kVA DHY6000SE from Genpower for us but my folks didnâ€™t need that kind of power. This 3200 was bought as a B grade return for a very good price. The initial owner rejected it due to a small crack in the outer case that is hardly visible. Their loss, my gain. It was ordered and delivered the following day, double boxed. This genset has no hours on the clock. Never used. It also needed oil in the engine as expected if it was never used. Disappointedly though one of the remote key fobs, the 13 amp plug to 16 amp commando adaptor, the oil, oil spout and the oil were missing. But for just over half price I wasnâ€™t complaining. Genpower have promised though that when lockdown is over and if Covid hasnâ€™t killed us all off they will replace the start controller and replace the two remote fobs. I am more than happy with that. This 3200 is a bit noisy. The Eco switch setting helps a bit. The neighbours complained when we needed it for power but as a 3.2kVA unit I am happy. Admittedly it was running out in the open in the back yard. It is a heavy item so no tossing it about like a 1kVA genset. The inverter provides clean, spike and harmonic free 50Hz, I scoped it out on my Fluke oscilloscope so 10/10 there. Time will tell if it is reliable but so far, so good. Only whinge is that it is a bit noisier than expected. 54dBA at 10 meters. It now has five and a half hours use.
Came Via our friends on TNT in a damaged box. No surprises there. All fine when opened, the machine is almost a cube in design. Carried out oil and battery startup procedure filled with unleaded and it fired up first turn. Its quiet for a 4Kva machine but not as unobtrusive as a smaller engine. Eco works well as it automatically ramps the revs down with no load. Plugged in a 2kw fan heater and it responded by increasing the speed instantly. Still not so loud as you would get complaints from other users. But, hey, this machines party piece of remote start and stop via a key fob is a real winner with us. we have a boat on a pontoon with no electric, so just by hooking up the shore power lead. Tah-Dah, instant cooker, shower,ice,charging and heating, all controlled from inside without going out with a pull cord. That said, this generator is no light weight at 35kg but it does put out over 3kw so its a direct trade off off kg for kw. have not yet got any long term use to base a review on, but the build quality and the fact its a known make will hopefully pay dividends, Visit Our Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Safety Information For More Information On Using A Generator On A Boat: https://hyundaipowerequipment.co.uk/carbon-monoxide-safety
