As the Honda EU2200i 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 Honda EU2200i.

  • Engine: The 121cc engine of the Honda EU2200i is significantly bigger than the Westinghouse iGen2200's engine, which has a displacement of 80cc.
  • Power: As both the Westinghouse iGen2200 and the Honda EU2200i share the same running wattage of 1800W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2200 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the Westinghouse iGen2200 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Honda EU2200i: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the Honda EU2200i offers a maximum runtime of 8.1 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour), the Westinghouse iGen2200 is more fuel efficient than the Honda EU2200i and its 0.12 GPH. The former's operation will therefore cost less in terms of the money spent on gasoline. 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 <3% for the Honda EU2200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 48 dBA, the Honda EU2200i allows for a quieter operation than the 52 dBA of the Westinghouse iGen2200. 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 46.3 lbs, the iGen2200 is slightly less heavy than the EU2200i (which weighs 47.4 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 Westinghouse iGen2200 and the Honda EU2200i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. The former also offers 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 Honda EU2200i's product pages.
  • Data Center: Being equipped with a data center, the Honda EU2200i allows for a better monitoring of its power generation than the Westinghouse iGen2200.
  • Technology: The Honda EU2200i benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Minder technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe. Besides that, the Honda EU2200i offers you greater convenience by allowing you to monitor its vital stats via the My Generator mobile app.

  1. First, thanks for the review between the two. I use to work at Auburn University and with every home football game they had their alumni set up near the stadium with a canopy, food, HDTV, and satellite TV or high speed internet and every one of them had the Honda EU2200 and what I remember the most about this generator is that it was as quiet as an idling weed eater. Despite everything I have heard about them and read regarding to just how really good they are, they’re not cheap and at $1199 before tax, I was looking for something as good and more efficient. Sam’s Club as the Westinghouse for $349 and Walmart has it for $422. I work for Walmart and I can get that at Walmart with my Walmart Plus for $380 and have it delivered to my front door for free.

  2. I just bought the Westinghouse igen2200, at sams club for $350,they shipped to my house for $5 in 3 days!

    You might consider adding sams to your “deals” list?

    Love your website, I have it bookmarked.

    Bob in North Carolina.

    • Hi Bob. Glad to hear that you scored a great deal on this unit!
      Sams Club sometimes sells it below MRRP. When they do, pricing becomes member-restricted, which technically prevents us from displaying it or including it on any relevant deal pages.

  3. Your analysis of one unit compared to the other was perfect in helping me decide which unit I am going to buy thank you

    • I have the Westinghouse igen 2200c and after reading the comparisons and knowing the price that I got this generator for I couldn’t be happier. I went to Lowes and they had it on clearance for 264.00 down from 529.00 regular price and when I got to the register and it rang up for 132.00 I quickly put it in my trunk and went back into the store and purchased the 2nd Generator they had sitting there on clearance for 264.00 for 132.00 so I got 2 of the Westinghouse igen 2200c brand new unopened for 264.00 +tax…needless to say I wish I could find more because I would buy them and sell them for a profit but I will take the Win this time and keep them to myself.
