As the GP2200i and the GP2500i 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 GP2200i compare to the Generac GP2500i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2200 W, the Generac GP2500i will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1700 running watts of the Generac GP2200i. Moreover, compared to the 2200 starting watts of the GP2200i, the GP2500i and its starting wattage of 2500 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 GP2500i: it can operate for up to 10.75 hours, whereas the GP2500i offers a maximum runtime of 8 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.11 GPH (gallon per hour), the Generac GP2200i is more fuel efficient than the GP2500i and its 0.13 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 GP2200i and <3% for the Generac GP2500i) 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 46.6 lbs, the GP2200i is slightly less heavy than the GP2500i (which weighs 48 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 GP2200i and the GP2500i 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 GP2200i's and the GP2500i's product pages.
