In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed, including its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP2300iH in use

The DuroMax XP2300iH

The dual-fuel technology of the DuroMax XP2300iH allows for an output of 120V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 1800W and a starting wattage of 2300W. If propane-powered, it gives 1700 rated watts and 2150 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.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a quiet suburb). Its starting mechanism is based on a conventional pull-start mechanism.

The XP2300iH, with a fuel capacity of 1.1 gallon, reaches a run time of up to 13 hours utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.08 GPH). Alternatively, it can reach a run time of up to 38 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.12 GPH) with propane.

As the XP2300iH produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

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

It also sports 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

This DuroMax generator features an L5-30R receptacle, enabling an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. However, it is still not quite RV ready.

Portability

As the DuroMax XP2300iH is an inverter generator, its encased design (L22 x W14 x H20 in) offers more aesthetics than a conventional, open frame product. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

The 50.6 lbs of the XP2300iH's dry weight enables you to use it anywhere you will ever need. Moreover, once it’s on the ground, its set of 2 wheels (⌀4.5") and its telecospic handle will allow you to shift it without effort.

Features

The XP2300iH's control panel

A digital data center, one of the features of the XP2300iH's control panel, gives you information on the frequency, voltage, lifetime run hours, fuel level and power output, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

In addition to this info, several light indicators serve to show you when its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is on overload and the generator is ready.

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind.

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. 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 (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the DuroMax XP2300iH also is packed along with the following accessories: propane hose, tool kit and funnel.

Emissions

The DuroMax XP2300iH is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. It can therefore be sold and purchased in all 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, making it usable in forested areas.

Product Videos

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 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.
  • 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 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.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of up to 13 hours at 25% load, the XP2300iH benefits from one of the highest run times among inverter generators of a similar output.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank’s capacity and thus, doesn’t say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. This inverter generator is one of the most fuel efficient models of the aforementioned output range, as its estimated fuel consumption reaches just 0.08 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load.

Price comparison

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

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