As the 56202i and the 56203i are both WEN generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the WEN 56202i compare to the WEN 56203i.

  • Power: As both the WEN 56202i and the WEN 56203i share the same running wattage of 1700W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2000 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: At a 50% load, these 2 portable generators benefit from the same approximate runtime on a full tank. Therefore, regardless of the model, you'll be able to enjoy power availability for around 7 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Keeping the aforementioned load in mind (i.e. 50%), these 2 generators will burn approximately 0.14 gallon of gasoline every hour. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<1.2% for the WEN 56202i and <1.2% for the WEN 56203i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 51 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: With a weight of 38.6 lbs, the 56202i is slightly less heavy than the 56203i (which weighs 40.3 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 56202i and the 56203i 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 56202i's and the 56203i's product pages.
  • Fuel Shut Off: The WEN 56203i benefits from a fuel shutoff feature, which turns off the flow of fuel, allowing for the generator to use up the remaining fuel from the carburetor before automatically shutting down. This helps fight the build-up and blockages caused by stagnant fuel inside of the carburetor, minimizing maintenance while prolonging the unit’s lifespan.
