The gasoline-powered Honda GXR120 OHV 4-stroke engine is at the heart of the Honda EU2200i Companion. It has a 120V output and a running power of 1,800W and a peak power of 2,200W. Also, since it can work in parallel (but doesn’t come with parallel cables from Honda), this power can be doubled by connecting it to another unit that works with it. The pull-start mechanism on the inverter generator is standard. It can make up to 48 dBA of noise (less noisy than a library). With a full tank, the EU2200i Companion can run for up to 8.1 hours, thanks to its 0.95-gallon fuel tank (fuel consumption is approximately 0.12 GPH). The EU2200i Companion makes a clean sine wave with a Total Harmonic Distortion of less than 3%, so you can safely plug sensitive electronics into the AC outlets (THD).
The control panel has two AC outlets: one for 120V 20A (5-20R) and another for 120V 30A (L5-30R).Even though this Honda generator isn’t quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle makes it easy to connect to an RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.
The lights will let you know when the oil level is too low, when the generator is ready, and when the generator is overloaded.As for safety features, the device has an automatic shut-off for low oil (Oil Alert®) and an overload protection (circuit breaker), so you can use it without worrying.In addition to the features we’ve already talked about, the Honda EU2200i Companion comes with the usual paperwork and owner’s manual to help you get started right away.
Since the Honda EU2200i Companion is an inverter generator, its enclosed design (L20 x W11.4 x H16.7 in) looks better than a traditional open frame product.The generator has a modern look and is easy to use when generating power for fun.The EU2200i Companion is a portable lightweight generator because it only weighs 47.4 lbs.The generator is easy for one person to move, so it can be used anywhere.It can also be carried easily thanks to a handle that is built into the case.This makes it even more convenient.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Honda-EU2200i-Companion compare to other generators with the same power output.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
About the Manufacturer
The Japanese Honda Motor Company, founded in 1948, has built a reputation for regularly delivering high-quality engines, motorized vehicles, and equipment.The business has built a solid name over the years in the power tool, motorbike, and vehicle industries.Since 1953, Honda’s power tool division has been manufacturing various power tools, such as tillers, mowers, blowers, sprayers, and of course, generators.Honda is still regarded as a legend among generator manufacturers even after the firm went worldwide and shifted the majority of its production from Japan to other Asian nations.
A warranty covers the Honda EU2200i Companion for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Honda’s warranty policies can tell you more about how long the warranty on a Honda generator lasts.You can also call their customer service line at 1-770-497-6400.
