As the iGen2500 and the iGen2200 are both Westinghouse generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Westinghouse iGen2500 compare to the Westinghouse iGen2200.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2200 W, the Westinghouse iGen2500 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1800 running watts of the Westinghouse iGen2200. Moreover, compared to the 2200 starting watts of the iGen2200, the iGen2500 and its starting wattage of 2500 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the iGen2200 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the iGen2500: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the iGen2500 offers a maximum runtime of 10 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.1 gallon of gasoline per hour. 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 Westinghouse iGen2200) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 52 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: With a weight of 46 lbs, the iGen2200 is slightly less heavy than the iGen2500 (which weighs 48 lbs).
  • 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 iGen2500 and the iGen2200 both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the iGen2500's and the iGen2200's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Westinghouse iGen2500 offers a better insight into its power production than the Westinghouse iGen2200, 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.
