As the Powerhorse 2500 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 Powerhorse 2500.

  • Engine: The 212cc engine of the Powerhorse 2500 is significantly bigger than the Honda EU2200i's engine, which has a displacement of 121cc.
  • Power: With a running wattage of 2000 W, the Powerhorse 2500 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 Powerhorse 2500 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 running at a 50% load, the Powerhorse 2500 enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the Honda EU2200i. It can deliver power for around 11 hours, whereas the Honda EU2200i will be able to power your appliances for around 4 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.36 GPH (gallon per hour), the Powerhorse 2500 is less fuel efficient than the Honda EU2200i with its 0.24 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former. Inverter generators like the Honda EU2200i are usually much more fuel efficient and quiet.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Honda EU2200i and <5% for the Powerhorse 2500) 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 Powerhorse 2500 is rated for a minimum dBA of 67. As previously mentioned, inverter generators such as the Honda EU2200i offer a much quieter operation.

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 Powerhorse 2500 and its L25.4" x W18.8" x H19.8".
  • Weight: Weighing 47.4 lbs, the EU2200i is much lighter than the 100 lbs of the 2500.
  • Portability: As the Powerhorse 2500 benefits from a wheel kit, 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 Powerhorse 2500 a folding handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: With a total of 4 AC outlets, the Powerhorse 2500 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 Powerhorse 2500'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 Powerhorse 2500 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.
