As the EU2200i and the EU3000iS 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 EU3000iS.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 2800 W, the Honda EU3000iS 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 EU2200i, the EU3000iS and its starting wattage of 3000 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 EU3000iS offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the EU2200i: it can operate for up to 20 hours, whereas the 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 EU3000iS and its 0.17 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 EU3000iS) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 48 dBA, the noise emitted by the EU2200i is slightly lower than the 50 dBA of the EU3000iS. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

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 Honda EU3000iS and its L25.9" x W17.6" x H22".
  • Weight: Weighing 46.5 lbs, the EU2200i is much lighter than the 131 lbs of the EU3000iS.
  • Portability: The EU2200i has a standard handle and the EU3000iS 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 Honda EU3000iS has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: With a total of 3 AC outlets, the EU3000iS offers more AC receptacles than the EU2200i, which has 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 EU2200i's and the EU3000iS's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Honda EU2200i offers a better insight into its power production than the Honda EU3000iS, because it is equipped with a data center. Besides that, thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Honda EU3000iS provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
