As the EU3000iS and the EU3200i 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 EU3000iS compare to the Honda EU3200i.

  • Engine: The 196cc engine of the EU3000iS is significantly bigger than the EU3200i's engine, which has a displacement of 130cc.
  • Power: With a running wattage of 2800 W, the Honda EU3000iS will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 2600 running watts of the Honda EU3200i. However, compared to the 3000 starting watts of the EU3000iS, the EU3200i and its starting wattage of 3200 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 EU3200i: it can operate for up to 20 hours, whereas the EU3200i offers a maximum runtime of 8.6 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.14 GPH (gallon per hour), the EU3200i is more fuel efficient than the Honda 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 EU3000iS and <3% for the Honda EU3200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 50 dBA, the EU3000iS allows for a quieter operation than the 54 dBA of the EU3200i. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L22.5" x W12" x H17.8", the Honda EU3200i offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the Honda EU3000iS and its L25.9" x W17.6" x H22".
  • Weight: Weighing 59.1 lbs, the EU3200i is much lighter than the 130.7 lbs of the EU3000iS.
  • Portability: The EU3000iS has a double handle and the EU3200i a standard handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: These two devices can both be reliably started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism. However, the Honda EU3000iS also benefits from a convenient electric starter.
  • EFI: The Honda EU3200i benefits from an Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, which enhances its engine's reliability, lowers its fuel consumption, improves its startup, reduces its servicing, boosts its stale fuel resistance, and offers better altitude adaptability.
  • Outlets: The EU3000iS and the EU3200i both offer 3 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the EU3000iS's and the EU3200i's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Being equipped with a data center, the Honda EU3200i allows for a better monitoring of its power generation than the Honda EU3000iS. Besides that, these 2 products are equipped with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance. For the EU3200i, this fuel gauge is digital and part of the data center.
  • Technology: Both units benefit from Honda's CO Minder carbon monoxide monitoring technology. Besides that, the Honda EU3200i offers you greater convenience by allowing you to monitor its vital stats via the My Generator mobile app.
