As the Powerhorse 2500 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 Powerhorse 2500.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2000 W, the Powerhorse 2500 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 Powerhorse 2500 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 running at a 50% load, the Powerhorse 2500 enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the Westinghouse iGen2200. It can deliver power for around 11 hours, whereas the Westinghouse iGen2200 will be able to power your appliances for around 10 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.36 GPH (gallon per hour), the Powerhorse 2500 is less fuel efficient than the Westinghouse iGen2200 with its 0.12 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former. Inverter generators like the Westinghouse iGen2200 are usually much more fuel efficient and quiet.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Westinghouse iGen2200 and <5% for the Powerhorse 2500) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: There's an important difference in the emitted noise between these 2 generators. In fact, the Westinghouse iGen2200 produces as low as 52 dBA, but the Powerhorse 2500 is rated for a minimum dBA of 67. As previously mentioned, inverter generators such as the Westinghouse iGen2200 offer a much quieter operation.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L19.8" x W11.4" x H17.9", the Westinghouse iGen2200 offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Powerhorse 2500 and its L25.4" x W18.8" x H19.8".
  • Weight: Weighing 46 lbs, the iGen2200 is much lighter than the 100 lbs of the 2500.
  • Portability: As the Powerhorse 2500 benefits from a wheel kit, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the Westinghouse iGen2200, because the latter doesn't have one. The Westinghouse iGen2200 has a standard handle and the Powerhorse 2500 a folding handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: With a total of 4 AC outlets, the Powerhorse 2500 offers more AC receptacles than the Westinghouse iGen2200, which has 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the Westinghouse iGen2200 does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Westinghouse iGen2200's and the Powerhorse 2500's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Being equipped with a data center, the Powerhorse 2500 allows for a better monitoring of its power generation than the Westinghouse iGen2200. Besides that, thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Powerhorse 2500 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
