Description

The 2200 Watt Portable Generator is powered by an 80cc OHV engine with auto throttle and low-oil shutdown, which protects the engine from damage. CO-Protect Technology automatically shuts down the generator if carbon monoxide levels become unsafe or rapidly increase. (source: Dewalt (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Dewalt DXGNi2200

In summary, the Dewalt DXGNi2200 is a compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Amateur DIY lovers
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Dewalt DXGNi2200 in use

The Dewalt DXGNi2200

The Dewalt DXGNi2200 is powered by a 80 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 1700W as well as a peak wattage of 2200W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (parallel kit not included), this power can be doubled when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 60 dBA (just as noisy as a normal conversation). Its starting mechanism is based on a conventional pull-start mechanism.

With a full tank, the DXGNi2200 can operate for up to 11 hours (fuel consumption around 0.09 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 1 gallon.

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the DXGNi2200 generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <3% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD).

Outlets

The control panel features the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI

Furthermore, it has 2 DC outlets: there's a 12V 8A receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy and a 5V USB port with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

Portability

The Dewalt DXGNi2200's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L21.3 x W10.8 x H17.7 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

Labeled a lightweight portable generator, the DXGNi2200 weighs just 49 lbs. A single person should not have any problems moving it around and thus, enjoy power availability on-the-go. Its handle (molded in the case) allows you to carry it easily, further enhancing its convenience.

Features

Panel of the Dewalt DXGNi2200

The DXGNi2200's control panel

Some light indicators allow you to instantly see if the generator is overloaded, the generator is ready and the oil level is too low.

The inverter generator includes a built-in fuel gauge, a quick, easy and convenient method of checking the device’s gas level.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

The DXGNi2200 also benefits from Dewalt’s CO Protect carbon monoxide shutdown. If CO levels become unsafe or rapidly increase, the generator is automatically shut down. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual, which lets you start it right away, the Dewalt DXGNi2200 also is packed along with the following accessories: funnel, oil and battery charging cables.

Emissions

The Dewalt DXGNi2200 is CARB-compliant. It can therefore be sold and purchased in all 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

The Dewalt DXGNi2200 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Dewalt DXGNi2200 compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • Since the generator weighs in at a dry weight of 49 lbs, the Dewalt DXGNi2200 belongs in the expected weight range for inverters which can produce between 1500 and 2500 rated watts. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Genmax GM2000i, with a dry weight of just 34.2 pounds.
  • This inverter generator, with its lowest possible noise rated at 60 dBA falls into the more noisy category, compared to other devices of a similar running wattage. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Honda EU2200i with only 48 dBA.
  • As the DXGNi2200 features an autonomy of up to 11 hours at 25% load, it has a higher run time than an average generator of its type and power range. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the DuroMax XP2300iH, boasting with up to 13 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. This inverter generator is one of the more fuel efficient models of the aforementioned output range, as its estimated fuel consumption reaches just 0.09 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the DuroMax XP2300iH. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.08 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Dewalt DXGNi2200 vs Honda EU2200i.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the Dewalt DXGNi2200 is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.

Is it linkable to another like generator? (Asked September 20, 2020)

Yes, the unit is parallel ready.

Does this generator feature an internal fuel pump like the equivalent Honda generator, or does it lack a pump like the equivalent Champion generator? I own a champion generator and am considering installing an external fuel tank modification but an opportunity has arisen to purchase a Dewalt generator at a very decent price, but my interest would depend upon whether I can easily add an external tank like I could with a Honda. Thanks in advance! (Asked July 20, 2021)

The unit does not feature an internal pump. Gasoline is gravity-fed.
