As the iQ2000 and the GP2200i are both Generac generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Generac iQ2000 compare to the Generac GP2200i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1700 W, the Generac GP2200i will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1600 running watts of the Generac iQ2000. Moreover, compared to the 2000 starting watts of the iQ2000, the GP2200i 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 GP2200i offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the iQ2000: it can operate for up to 10.75 hours, whereas the iQ2000 offers a maximum runtime of 7.7 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.11 GPH (gallon per hour), the GP2200i is more fuel efficient than the Generac iQ2000 and its 0.14 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 Generac iQ2000 and <3% for the Generac GP2200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.

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 46.5 lbs, the iQ2000 is slightly less heavy than the GP2200i (which weighs 46.6 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 iQ2000 and the GP2200i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. The latter also offers a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the iQ2000's and the GP2200i's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Generac iQ2000 offers a better insight into its power production than the Generac GP2200i, because it is equipped with a data center. Besides that, thanks to the digital fuel fauge provided by its data center, the Generac iQ2000 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
