The Rainier R2200i is made with a gasoline-powered Rainier OHV 4-stroke engine that is 79 cc (2.7 hp) in size. It has a 120V output and a running power of 1,800W and a peak power of 2,200W. Also, since the generator can work in parallel (but doesn’t come with a parallel kit), it can be linked to a second unit to make more power. The pull-start mechanism on the inverter generator is standard. It can make up to 52 dBA of noise (not much louder than a conversation at home). With a full tank, the R2200i can run for up to 13 hours on its 1.3-gallon fuel tank (fuel consumption is approximately 0.1 GPH). The R2200i makes a clean sine wave with a Total Harmonic Distortion of 3%, so it is safe to plug sensitive electronics into the AC outlets (THD).
The control panel has the following two AC outlets: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R).Also, it has 1 DC outlet: a 12V 8A receptacle that looks like a cigarette lighter.This makes it easy to charge your batteries.
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 inverter generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it easy to see at a glance how much gas is in the tank.When it comes to safety, this product has an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), so you can use it without worry.The Rainier R2200i comes with a tool kit, oil, and a funnel, along with the basic paperwork and an owner’s manual that will help you start the generator right away.
The Rainier R2200i is an inverter generator.It has a case that is L19.7 in, x W13.3 in, x H17.3 in, So, it looks better than most other products with open frames.The design fits with what’s popular now and is perfect for generating power for fun.The R2200i is a portable generator that is light and weighs only 44 lbs.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 Rainier-R2200i 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.
