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 short, the Dewalt DXGNi2200 is a compact and lightweight portable inverter generator adequately designed for:

  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device.

Power & Run Time

The Dewalt DXGNi2200 in use

The Dewalt DXGNi2200

Running on gasoline, the Dewalt DXGNi2200 operates with a 80 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine, delivering 120V, with a running wattage of 1,700W and a peak wattage of 2,200W. Moreover, the parallel capability (parallel kit not included) enables doubling of power output when paired with another similar or compatible unit, providing increased energy capacity and versatility for a wide range of needs.

Featuring a noise rating of 60 dBA (just as noisy as background music), the inverter generator utilizes a standard recoil pull-rope starting mechanism for ignition.

With its 1 gallon fuel tank, the DXGNi2200 can operate for up to 11 hours when fully fueled (with fuel usage averaging around 0.09 GPH).

The DXGNi2200 produces a clean sine wave: thanks to a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), your sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 2 AC outlets:

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

It also sports 2 DC outlets: there's a 12V 8A receptacle allowing you to easily charge your batteries and a 5V USB port providing convenient charging capabilities for mobile phones, tablets, and other electronic devices.

Portability

As the Dewalt DXGNi2200 is an inverter generator, its encased design (L21.3 x W10.8 x H17.7 in) offers more aesthetics than a conventional, open frame product. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

Considered a lightweight portable generator, the DXGNi2200 weighs just 49 lbs. Thanks to its lightweight design, one person can easily move it around, ensuring power availability wherever you travel. Its handle (molded in the case) makes carrying it a simple task, further enhancing its convenience.

Features

Panel of the Dewalt DXGNi2200

The DXGNi2200's control panel

The device's light indicators will illuminate to indicate if the oil level is too low, the generator is overloaded and the generator is ready.

The built-in fuel gauge of the inverter generator ensures simple and quick gas level assessments.

As far as security is concerned, the generator comes with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, providing peace of mind during use.

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.

In addition to the traditional documentation and an owner's manual to help you get started promptly, the Dewalt DXGNi2200 also includes several accessories: oil, battery charging cables and funnel.

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).

  • At 49 lbs in dry weight, the Dewalt DXGNi2200 fits well within the typical weight bracket for inverter generators producing 1500 to 2500 rated watts. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Genmax GM2000i, weighing just 34.2 pounds.
  • When stacked up against other devices of similar running wattage, this inverter generator's lowest possible noise rating of 60 dBA places it in the louder category. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU2200i, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 48 dBA.
  • With a run time of up to 11 hours at 25% load, the DXGNi2200 has one of the higher run times, compared to its similarly powerful peers. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the DuroMax XP2300iH, reaching 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. Among devices of similar power, this inverter generator has one of the better fuel efficiency, with consumption rates of around 0.09 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load. If you wish to get a unit of similar power, but with one of the best fuel efficiency, you could consider the DuroMax XP2300iH, which has an impressively low fuel consumption of 0.08 GPH.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Dewalt DXGNi2200 vs Honda EU2200i.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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.
