As the WEN 56225i 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 56225i.

  • Power: As both the Westinghouse iGen2200 and the WEN 56225i share the same running wattage of 1800W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. However, compared to the 2200 starting watts of the Westinghouse iGen2200, the WEN 56225i and its starting wattage of 2250 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 56225i: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the WEN 56225i offers a maximum runtime of 9.4 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 WEN 56225i and its 0.11 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 <1.2% for the WEN 56225i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 52 dBA, the noise emitted by the Westinghouse iGen2200 is slightly lower than the 53 dBA of the WEN 56225i. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

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 56225i (which weighs 48.5 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 WEN 56225i 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 56225i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the WEN 56225i provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Fuel Shut Off: The WEN 56225i 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.
