As the Cummins Onan P2500i 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 Cummins Onan P2500i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2200 W, the Cummins Onan P2500i 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 Cummins Onan P2500i 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 Cummins Onan P2500i offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the Honda EU2200i: it can operate for up to 10 hours, whereas the Honda EU2200i offers a maximum runtime of 8.1 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour), the Cummins Onan P2500i is more fuel efficient than the Honda EU2200i and its 0.12 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 <3% for the Cummins Onan P2500i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 48 dBA, the Honda EU2200i allows for a quieter operation than the 52 dBA of the Cummins Onan P2500i. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

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 EU2200i is slightly less heavy than the Onan P2500i (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 Honda EU2200i and the Cummins Onan P2500i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Honda EU2200i's and the Cummins Onan P2500i'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 Cummins Onan P2500i provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
