The heart of the Westinghouse iGen2200 is a gasoline-powered 80 cc Westinghouse OHV 4-stroke engine. It has a 120V output and a running power of 1,800W and a peak power of 2,200W. Also, because it can work in parallel (but doesn’t come with a Westinghouse WHPC Parallel Cord), this power can be doubled if it is connected to another similar or compatible unit. The noise level of the inverter generator is set at 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a refrigerator). It has a pull-start mechanism, which is a common way to start a motor. With a full tank, the iGen2200 can run for up to 12 hours, thanks to its 1.14-gallon fuel tank (fuel consumption is approximately 0.1 GPH). The iGen2200 makes a clean sine wave with a Total Harmonic Distortion of less than 3%, so it’s safe to plug sensitive electronics into AC outlets (THD).
The control panel has 2 AC outlets for the following: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R).It also has 2 DC outlets: there are two 5V USB ports that make it easy to charge devices like cell phones or tablets.
Several lights let you know when the generator is ready, when it is overloaded, and when it doesn’t have enough oil.From a safety point of view, the product has an automatic shut-off for low oil and an overload protection (circuit breaker), so you can use it without worrying.The Westinghouse iGen2200 comes with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual , which lets you start it right away.It also comes with oil, a funnel, and a set of tools.You can also buy a storage cover that is made by the company.
The Westinghouse iGen2200 looks better than a typical open frame generator because it has a closed inverter generator (L19.8 x W11.4 x H17.9 in).The design shown here is in line with the latest trends and is great for easy and fun use.The iGen2200 is a portable generator that weighs only 46.3 pounds.The device is easy for one person to move, so its power can be used while on the go.Its case has a handle that makes it easy to carry.This makes it even more convenient.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Westinghouse-iGEN2200 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 Westinghouse Electric Corporation was established in 1886, and its heritage business, Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment, is situated in the US.The Westinghouse name continues to be the brand name for many of its electrical solutions, which range throughout the scale from power plants to portable generators, despite the fact that the firm has been acquired and integrated into the American CBS.The primary product of Westinghouse’s Outdoor Power Equipment division, portable generators were previously produced by Westpro Power Systems, which Midwest Equipment acquired in 2016.Under the Westinghouse brand, lawn tools including trimmers and blowers are also offered for sale.Their entire line of items is American-designed.However, according to a number of sites, they are frequently made in China.
There is a warranty on the Westinghouse iGen2200 for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Check out Westinghouse’s warranty policies if you want to know more about the warranty on Westinghouse generators.You can also call their customer service line at 1-855-944-3571.
