Honda EU2200i Generator
Upgraded Version of EU2000i: This Honda EU2200i is the upgraded version of EU2000i in terms of power, performance, ease of use, and maintenance.
Engine: It is powered by the 121cc Honda GXR120 engine.
Power Output: This portable inverter generator provides clean and reliable power to your appliances and electronics. It delivers 10% more power than the previous EU2000i model. The unit generates 2200 watts of peak power and 1800 watts of continuous power.
Fuel Tank Capacity and Runtime: With only a 0.95-gallon fuel tank, it offers 4 to 9.6 hours of runtime. This runtime is slightly less than the Yamaha EF2200iS that offers up to 10.5 hours of runtime. But with a 1.24-gallon tank, you can expect this runtime.
Honda EU2200i is featured with Eco-throttle that allows the engine to change its speed according to the load applied. Unlike traditional generators, its engine doesn’t run at 3600 RPM all the time. This speed variation saves fuel by up to 40%.
Noise Level: Honda EU2200i is one of the quietest generators. At 25% load, it operates at 48 dBA, and at rated load, it operates at 57 dBA. But the minimum noise level that Yamaha EF2200iS produces is 57 dBA.
Parallel Capable: You can also link another EU2200i to generate more power at the time of need.
Start System: It only comes with a recoil start system.
Power Outlets: If we talk about its power outlets, then there is one 12V 8.3A DC outlet that is only for charging the battery. Also, there are two 120V 15A AC household outlets.
Safety Features: The unit features different safety features that make it a reliable product to use. First, there is a low-oil shutoff feature that turns the engine off when it senses lower oil levels. The oil alert indicator is also there on the control panel.
Second, it has a fuel shutoff valve that allows the generator’s engine to run without fuel. This running without fuel prevents stale gas-related issues.
Third, there is an electronic circuit breaker. All three power outlets are wired to this breaker. It protects against both the overload and short circuit. The current through the line is continuously monitored, and when the overcurrent flows, the breaker gets tripped.
The overload alarm indicator is available on the control panel. Also, there is a push-button through which you can easily reset the circuit.
Ease of Use: The unit is also easy to use and maintain. Its light effort pull-start system makes it easy to start the engine. Also, in cold weather conditions, the unit doesn’t take time to start.
Moreover, you can easily and cleanly change the oil because of the large spout and oil drain gutter.
Weight and Warranty: It comes with a 3-year limited warranty and weighs 47 pounds.
