Can you use a parallel cord between two ego 2,000 wat inverters

Would it be possible to us a parallel cord to get more watts out of it... if you have two ego 2000 watt inverters and use a parallel cord Could you get up to 4,000 watts with a surge of 6,000 you can do this with a lot of small gas inverters why not with this..

Pretty sure there is no way to parallel 2 units. That would be a nice feature. Word is out that these are going to be solar compatible so maybe they will also have parallel compatibility if not with this update maybe the next.

interesting that it's possible with gas inverters. Do they have a specific feature that allows this? As this is an AC output, without the units being connected together to sync their output, I don't know how else you could guarantee the two outputs would be in sync.

It's a very common feature in most gasoline powered generators. They use a parallel cable that plugs in to both generators. I don't know the "mechanics" behind it, but you can get 4KW out of 2 gas powered 2KW inverter generators (6KW from 2x3, etc...). This is a very common way people who travel with RVs get enough juice to power their RVs plus air conditioners but keep weight down since a 2KW generator is much lighter than most 3 KW generators. That is to say, people who camp where there are no electric hookups.
