As the WEN 56235i and the Westinghouse iGen2200 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 iGen2200 compare to the WEN 56235i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1900 W, the WEN 56235i 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 Westinghouse iGen2200, the WEN 56235i and its starting wattage of 2350 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 Westinghouse iGen2200 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the WEN 56235i: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the WEN 56235i offers a maximum runtime of 10.5 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 iGen2200 and <1.2% for the WEN 56235i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 51 dBA, the noise emitted by the WEN 56235i is slightly lower than the 52 dBA of the Westinghouse iGen2200. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the WEN 56235i and its dimensions of L17.3" x W11.5" x H17.7" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L19.8" x W11.4" x H17.9" of the Westinghouse iGen2200.
  • Weight: The 56235i and its 39 lbs is somewhat lighter than the 46.3 lbs of the iGen2200.
  • 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 iGen2200 and the WEN 56235i 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 iGen2200's and the WEN 56235i's product pages.
  • Fuel Shut Off: The WEN 56235i benefits from a fuel shutoff feature, which turns off the flow of fuel, allowing for the generator to use up the remaining fuel from the carburetor before automatically shutting down. This helps fight the build-up and blockages caused by stagnant fuel inside of the carburetor, minimizing maintenance while prolonging the unit’s lifespan.
