As the Honda EU2200i and the Generac iQ3500 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 Generac iQ3500 compare to the Honda EU2200i.

  • Engine: The 212cc engine of the Generac iQ3500 is significantly bigger than the Honda EU2200i's engine, which has a displacement of 121cc.
  • Power: With a running wattage of 3000 W, the Generac iQ3500 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1800 running watts of the Honda EU2200i. Moreover, compared to the 2200 starting watts of the Honda EU2200i, the Generac iQ3500 and its starting wattage of 3500 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 Generac iQ3500 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Honda EU2200i: it can operate for up to 14.1 hours, whereas the Honda EU2200i offers a maximum runtime of 8.1 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.12 GPH (gallon per hour), the Honda EU2200i is more fuel efficient than the Generac iQ3500 and its 0.18 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 iQ3500 and <3% for the Honda EU2200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.

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 Generac iQ3500 and its L23.7" x W18" x H21.7".
  • Weight: Weighing 47.4 lbs, the EU2200i is much lighter than the 109.1 lbs of the iQ3500.
  • Portability: The Generac iQ3500 has a double handle and the Honda EU2200i a standard handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: These two devices can both be reliably started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism. However, the Generac iQ3500 also benefits from a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: The Generac iQ3500 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. The former also offers 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 Generac iQ3500's and the Honda EU2200i's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output. Besides that, thanks to the digital fuel fauge provided by its data center, the Generac iQ3500 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Technology: The Honda EU2200i benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Minder technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe. Besides that, the Honda EU2200i offers you greater convenience by allowing you to monitor its vital stats via the My Generator mobile app.
