As the WEN 56200i 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 56200i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1800 W, the Westinghouse iGen2200 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 iGen2200 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: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the Westinghouse iGen2200 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the WEN 56200i: it can operate for up to 12 hours, whereas the WEN 56200i 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 56200i 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 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 iGen2200. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the WEN 56200i and its dimensions of L18" x W11" x H18" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L19.8" x W11.4" x H17.9" of the Westinghouse iGen2200.
  • Weight: With a weight of 46 lbs, the iGen2200 is slightly less heavy than the 56200i (which weighs 50 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 56200i 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 56200i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the WEN 56200i provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
