As the Honda EU1000i and the Yamaha EF1000iS 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 EF1000iS compare to the Honda EU1000i.

  • Power: As both the Yamaha EF1000iS and the Honda EU1000i share the same running wattage of 900W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (1000 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 EF1000iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Honda EU1000i: it can operate for up to 11.9 hours, whereas the Honda EU1000i offers a maximum runtime of 7.1 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.06 GPH (gallon per hour), the Yamaha EF1000iS is more fuel efficient than the Honda EU1000i and its 0.08 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 (<2.5% for the Yamaha EF1000iS and <3% for the Honda EU1000i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 42 dBA, the Honda EU1000i allows for a quieter operation than the 47 dBA of the Yamaha EF1000iS. 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 27.9 lbs, the EF1000iS is slightly less heavy than the EU1000i (which weighs 28.7 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 Yamaha EF1000iS and the Honda EU1000i both offer 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 EF1000iS's and the Honda EU1000i's product pages.
