I have a 4kw geny at home, what type of transfer switch should I be looking for? It seems they sometimes rate them at 30 amp generator / 100 amp utility or whatever.
Do I need a panel that matches both my geny AND utility drop?

What kind of battery do you recommend for my phased-plasma rifle in the forty watt range. The batteries I use right now just don't hold enough shots.

A 4KW Generator works out to be 33.3333333 Amps @ 120V   You can safely use a 30A rated transfer switch, as this is what would normally come with such a Generator, when purchased as a package.


Technically, you're supposed to rate UP to the next standard size, but the 3.33333333333333 Amps is negligible, and you can therefore disregard it.  

A 30 A switch is fine........

Depending on what type of actual switch you're asking about, I'd need to see the specs in regards to the 100A utility rating.....

It really depends on how exactly the switch is designed to be wired into the service.... Some are different than others.........

Some are meant to be only used when you manually throw the main utility (power co.) breaker off, then you switch the individual breaker/switches on the Gen. panel....

Now an automatic switch like is used in a Generac brand permanent installation is different, and will come off your main panel, and be connected in series with a SEPERATE 2nd sub-panel, that all the circuits are you want to be on the Gen. will be wired into....


There's some variables to each different manufacturer / style of equipment....

Can't really give you an exact answer, without knowing which you have / plan to use

That help any ?
