As the WEN 56380i and the Westinghouse iGen4500 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 iGen4500 compare to the WEN 56380i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 3700 W, the Westinghouse iGen4500 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 3400 running watts of the WEN 56380i. Moreover, compared to the 3800 starting watts of the WEN 56380i, the Westinghouse iGen4500 and its starting wattage of 4500 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When running at a 50% load, the Westinghouse iGen4500 enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the WEN 56380i. It can deliver power for around 15 hours, whereas the WEN 56380i will be able to power your appliances for around 8.5 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.26 GPH (gallon per hour), the WEN 56380i is less fuel efficient than the Westinghouse iGen4500 with its 0.23 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former. 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 iGen4500 and <1.2% for the WEN 56380i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 52 dBA, the Westinghouse iGen4500 allows for a quieter operation than the 57 dBA of the WEN 56380i. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

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 98 lbs, the iGen4500 is slightly less heavy than the 56380i (which weighs 99.2 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. The Westinghouse iGen4500 has a telecospic handle and the WEN 56380i a folding handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter. The Westinghouse iGen4500 offers another layer of convenience, as it can be remotely started.
  • Outlets: The Westinghouse iGen4500 and the WEN 56380i both offer 3 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 Westinghouse iGen4500's and the WEN 56380i's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output. Besides that, these 2 products are equipped with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance. For the iGen4500, this fuel gauge is digital and part of the data center.
