The heart of the Honda EU2200i is the gasoline-powered 121 cc Honda GXR120 OHV 4-stroke engine. 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 inverter generator has a very low noise rating of 48 dBA, which is quieter than bird calls. This made it one of our 10 quietest portable generators and put it on our list of the 10 quietest portable generators. Due to its 0.95 gallon fuel tank, the EU2200i can run for up to 8.1 hours on a full tank (using about 0.12 GPH of fuel). The EU2200i makes a clean sine wave. Its Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) is less than 3%, so you can safely plug sensitive electronics into its AC outlets.
On the control panel, there are two 120V 20A duplex outlets (5-20R).
The lights on the device will show if the generator is overloaded, if it is ready to go, or if the oil level is too low.The product is safe because it has an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off (Oil Alert®), so you can use it without worrying.In addition to the features we’ve already talked about, the Honda EU2200i comes with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual , so you can use it right away.You can buy a storage cover from the company separately.
The Honda EU2200i looks better than a typical open-frame generator because it has a closed inverter generator (L20 x W11.4 x H16.7 in).This kind of design is the most modern and easy way to make power for fun.The EU2200i is a portable generator that weighs only 47.4 pounds.The device is easy for one person to move, so its power can be used while on the go.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 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.
There is a warranty on the Honda EU2200i 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.
