As the Honda EU2200i and the Yamaha EF2200iS 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 Yamaha EF2200iS compare to the Honda EU2200i.

  • Power: As both the Yamaha EF2200iS 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 Yamaha EF2200iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Honda EU2200i: it can operate for up to 10.5 hours, whereas the Honda EU2200i offers a maximum runtime of 8.1 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.12 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 (<2.5% for the Yamaha EF2200iS and <3% for the Honda EU2200i) 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 Honda EU2200i produces as low as 48 dBA, but the Yamaha EF2200iS is rated for a minimum dBA of 57.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L20" x W11.4" x H16.7", the Honda EU2200i offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Yamaha EF2200iS and its L21.9" x W11.8" x H18.5".
  • Weight: The EU2200i and its 46.5 lbs is somewhat lighter than the 55.2 lbs of the EF2200iS.
  • Portability: The Yamaha EF2200iS has a triple handle and the Honda EU2200i a standard handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Yamaha EF2200iS offers a higher amount of AC receptacles than the Honda EU2200i: the former benefits from 3 AC outlets, whereas the latter has 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Yamaha EF2200iS's and the Honda EU2200i's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Being equipped with a data center, the Honda EU2200i allows for a better monitoring of its power generation than the Yamaha EF2200iS. Besides that, thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Yamaha EF2200iS provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
