As the Generac GP2500i and the Westinghouse iGen2500 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Westinghouse iGen2500 compare to the Generac GP2500i.

  • Power: As both the Westinghouse iGen2500 and the Generac GP2500i share the same running wattage of 2200W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2500 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the Westinghouse iGen2500 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Generac GP2500i: it can operate for up to 10 hours, whereas the Generac GP2500i offers a maximum runtime of 8 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour), the Westinghouse iGen2500 is more fuel efficient than the Generac GP2500i and its 0.13 GPH. The former's operation will therefore cost less in terms of the money spent on gasoline. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Westinghouse iGen2500 and <3% for the Generac GP2500i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: Considering that both devices weigh 48 lbs, neither of them will require more effort to be manually lifted and transported.
  • Portability: Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Westinghouse iGen2500 and the Generac GP2500i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Westinghouse iGen2500's and the Generac GP2500i's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Westinghouse iGen2500 offers a better insight into its power production than the Generac GP2500i, because it is equipped with a data center. Besides that, thanks to the digital fuel fauge provided by its data center, the Westinghouse iGen2500 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
