Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP2300iH in use

The DuroMax XP2300iH

The DuroMax XP2300iH, equipped with dual-fuel technology and delivering 120V, ensures both power and versatility. Running on gasoline, it delivers a running wattage of 1,800W and a starting wattage of 2,300W. On propane, it provides 1,700 running watts and 2,150 starting watts. In addition, the device is parallel capable (parallel kit included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

DuroMax’s Switch On Demand technology allows you to switch from propane to gasoline or from gasoline to propane while the generator is running.

With a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a refrigerator), the inverter generator's ignition is facilitated by a traditional recoil pull-start mechanism.

Concerning its running time, the XP2300iH, featuring a 1.1 gallon fuel tank, can continuously run for up to 13 hours with a full gasoline tank (consuming fuel at approximately 0.08 gallons per hour). Alternatively, when utilizing propane, it offers up to 38 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.12 GPH) of runtime.

With a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the XP2300iH delivers a clean sine wave—essential for safeguarding your delicate electronics when plugged into its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle

In addition, it provides 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) ideal for charging various electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.

While not classified as 'RV Ready,' this DuroMax generator can still provides the advantage of RV connection via its L5-30R receptacle, ensuring power supply to your RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.

Portability

Since the DuroMax XP2300iH is an inverter generator, its closed design (L22 x W14 x H20 in) not only provides an aesthetic advantage but also contributes to reduced noise levels compared to conventional, open frame devices. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

Weighing 50.6 lbs, the XP2300iH is easily handled, ensuring it can go wherever your power needs are. Furthermore, with its set of 2 wheels (⌀4.5") and its telecospic handle, you can easily relocate the generator once it's set up.

Features

Panel of the DuroMax XP2300iH

The XP2300iH's control panel

Embedded in the control panel of the XP2300iH, a digital data center serves as a vital feature, offering comprehensive information on the voltage, fuel level, lifetime run hours, frequency and power output to aid in monitoring activity and status.

In addition to this info, when the generator is on overload, the generator is ready and the oil level is too low, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

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

The XP2300iH also benefits from DuroMax’s CO Alert carbon monoxide shutdown. If CO levels become unsafe or rapidly increase, the generator will automatically shut down, an indicator will light red, and the engine will not restart for 5 minutes.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the DuroMax XP2300iH, the following accessories are also included: funnel, tool kit and propane hose.

The DuroMax XP2300iH versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP2300iH compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • Since the generator weighs in at a dry weight of 50.6 lbs, the DuroMax XP2300iH belongs in the expected weight range for inverters which can produce between 1500 and 2500 rated watts. If weight is a key factor for your needs, the Genmax GM2000i is noteworthy for being one of the top contenders in this power range, with a dry weight of 34.2 pounds.
  • With a lowest noise rating of 52 dBA, the inverter generator is one of the more quiet of the generators of similar type and power. If you'd like a less noisy alternative, the Honda EU2200i is a strong contender. It boasts a noise rating of 48 dBA, placing it among the quietest generators in its power category.
  • Since the XP2300iH boasts with a run time of up to 13 hours at 25% load, it can be safely judged as one of the inverters with the highest run time among those of a comparable output.
  • 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 generators of similar power, this inverter generator stands out with one of the best fuel efficiency, with consumption rates around 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W dual fuel inverter generators, the DuroMax XP2300iH is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it would most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
