Honda EU2200i Portable Generator 2018 Review

Now, can Honda satisfy its vast client base with EU2000i? Can they hold on to a single product for that long? Can they stop making legendary generators? No. They had to move on. So, at the early spring 2018 Honda made available its new legend, The EU2200i, nationwide. EU2200i is perfect than ever.

The Best Portable Generator

Beyond dependability and reliability, many other factors come down to convenience. Noise, for example, is a major one. Some generators list “operational volume” as a specification, but it’s not always clear under what conditions the companies make those measurements, and it’s definitely not clear whether all the manufacturers are using the same methods. We wanted to measure the relative differences between the generators but also give some context for just how loud a generator can be if this is your first time shopping for one.

Physically, both the Honda EU22i and EU20i appear to be the same size.  But look closer and there are significant differences. The Honda EU22i actually has a larger 4-Stroke GXR120 engine for a maximum output of 2200 watts. That’s 10% more power than the EU20i – enough for an extra bar fridge.

Generator Review: Honda EU22i vs Honda EU20i

Physically, both the Honda EU22i and EU20i appear to be the same size.  But look closer and there are significant differences. The Honda EU22i actually has a larger 4-Stroke GXR120 engine for a maximum output of 2200 watts. That’s 10% more power than the EU20i – enough for an extra bar fridge.

Specifications and Operation

The noise level was imperceptible from inside the house just a few feet a way. About the only time you could hear the unit was when the refrigerator kicked on and the Honda had to throttle up to handle the additional load.  Once the fridge was running the Honda immediately dropped back into Eco mode. 

Sharing is Nice

Overall, the single-gallon tank can provide six hours of power to gadgets and appliances at a 50 percent load run time. Additionally, the WEN offers both low-oil and low-fuel automatic shutdown to help prevent the generator and your electronics from any damage while plugged in. To further maximize the generator’s power, switching on Eco-Mode will help allow the generator’s motor to automatically adjust its fuel consumption. That will help extend the generator’s life to maximize its fuel capacity while still powering any item that’s plugged in.

2000 Watt Portable Generator Reviews

Seriously, you could purchase two of these, use them in parallel and have twice the power for less than one Honda or Yamaha. This small generator does not have the stellar history behind it that the other two do, but so far it looks like the statistics are very favorable for these quiet generators.

Price

It uses copper-wound machine heads to run continuously without overheating or causing motor damage. Cheaper aluminum heads can overheat and force your whole generator to shut down, and they’re what you’d normally find at this price. The Powerhorse uses surprisingly high-end components to give you better all-day runtime.
