As the Predator 3500 and the Honda EU2200i 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 Honda EU2200i compare to the Predator 3500.

  • Engine: The 212cc engine of the Predator 3500 is significantly bigger than the Honda EU2200i's engine, which has a displacement of 121cc.
  • Power: With a running wattage of 3,000 W, the Predator 3500 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1,800 running watts of the Honda EU2200i. Moreover, compared to the 2,200 starting watts of the Honda EU2200i, the Predator 3500 and its starting wattage of 3,500 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 Predator 3500 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Honda EU2200i: it can operate for up to 11 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 Predator 3500 and its 0.24 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 Honda EU2200i and <5% for the Predator 3500) 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 Predator 3500 is rated for a minimum dBA of 56.

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 Predator 3500 and its L22.8" x W17.3" x H20".
  • Weight: Weighing 47.4 lbs, the EU2200i is much lighter than the 102 lbs of the 3500.
  • Portability: As the Predator 3500 benefits from a built-in set of wheels, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the Honda EU2200i, because the latter doesn't have one. The Honda EU2200i has a standard handle and the Predator 3500 a double handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: While these two devices can both start thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, the Predator 3500 has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: With a total of 3 AC outlets, the Predator 3500 offers more AC receptacles than the Honda EU2200i, which 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 Honda EU2200i's and the Predator 3500'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 a fitted fuel gauge, the Predator 3500 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Technology: They both benefit from a technology that monitors the ambient CO level. For the Honda EU2200i, it's the CO Minder technology, whereas it's the CO Secure for the Predator 3500. Besides that, the Honda EU2200i offers you greater convenience by allowing you to monitor its vital stats via the My Generator mobile app.
  • Warranty: The Honda EU2200i benefits from a significantly longer warranty. It is covered for up to 3 years, while the Predator unit is only covered for up to 90 days without purchasing a warranty extension.
