As the WEN 56200i and the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT 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 WH2200iXLT compare to the WEN 56200i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1800 W, the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1600 running watts of the WEN 56200i. Moreover, compared to the 2000 starting watts of the WEN 56200i, the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT and its starting wattage of 2200 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: We unfortunately lack the data to compare the runtimes of these 2 generators. One of the manufacturers only provides data @25% load, whereas the other only gives data @50% load. It makes little sense to compare runtimes at different loads.
  • Fuel Efficiency: For the same reasons as pointed out above, we do not see any sense in comparing fuel consumption at different loads. 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 WH2200iXLT and <1.2% for the WEN 56200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 50 dBA, the noise emitted by the WEN 56200i is slightly lower than the 52 dBA of the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L18" x W11" x H18", the WEN 56200i offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT and its L20" x W12.5" x H17.5".
  • Weight: The WH2200iXLT and its 43 lbs is somewhat lighter than the 50 lbs of the 56200i.
  • 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 WH2200iXLT and the WEN 56200i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the WEN 56200i does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT's and the WEN 56200i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the WEN 56200i provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
