As the EU2200i and the EU2200i Companion are both Honda generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. They are both part of Honda's Super Quiet series (EU), which is ideal for recreational and home backup applications.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Honda EU2200i compare to the Honda EU2200i Companion.

  • Power: As both the Honda EU2200i and the Honda EU2200i Companion share the same running wattage of 1800W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2200 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the EU2200i Companion offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the EU2200i: it can operate for up to 8.4 hours, whereas the EU2200i offers a maximum runtime of 8.1 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.11 GPH (gallon per hour), the EU2200i Companion 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 Honda EU2200i Companion) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 48 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: Considering that both devices weigh 46.5 lbs, neither of them will require more effort to be manually lifted and transported.
  • 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 EU2200i and the EU2200i Companion both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. The former also offers a DC output. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the EU2200i's and the EU2200i Companion's product pages.
  • Data Center: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output.
