As the P2200 PowerSmart and the P2400 PowerSmart are both Briggs & Stratton 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 Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart compare to the Briggs & Stratton P2400 PowerSmart.

  • Engine: The 110cc engine of the P2200 PowerSmart is significantly bigger than the P2400 PowerSmart's engine, which has a displacement of 79cc.
  • Power: With a running wattage of 1800 W, the Briggs & Stratton P2400 PowerSmart will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1700 running watts of the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart. Moreover, compared to the 2200 starting watts of the P2200 PowerSmart, the P2400 PowerSmart and its starting wattage of 2400 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: At a 25% load, these 2 portable generators offer the same runtime on a full tank. Each of them will be able to deliver power for up to 8 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: At the same load as mentioned above (i.e. 25%), both generators will approximately burn 0.13 gallon of gasoline per hour. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart and <3% for the Briggs & Stratton P2400 PowerSmart) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With 59 dBA, the noise emitted by the P2200 PowerSmart is slightly lower than the 62 dBA of the P2400 PowerSmart. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the Briggs & Stratton P2400 PowerSmart and its dimensions of L20" x W12" x H17" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L21" x W12.5" x H17.35" of the Briggs & Stratton P2200 PowerSmart.
  • Weight: With a weight of 51 lbs, the P2400 PowerSmart is slightly less heavy than the P2200 PowerSmart (which weighs 54 lbs).
  • Portability: The P2200 PowerSmart has a triple handle and the P2400 PowerSmart a double handle, to help you better manipulate them.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The P2200 PowerSmart and the P2400 PowerSmart both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the P2400 PowerSmart does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the P2200 PowerSmart's and the P2400 PowerSmart's product pages.
  • Technology: The Briggs & Stratton P2400 PowerSmart benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Guard™ technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe.
