Zoom on the Honda EU2200i Camo

In summary, the Honda EU2200i Camo is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go

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 Honda EU2200i Camo in use

The Honda EU2200i Camo

The Honda EU2200i Camo houses a 121 cc Honda GXR120 OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 1800W along with a peak wattage of 2200W. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (Honda parallel cables (opens in a new tab) not included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

The inverter generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism. It is rated for a noise of 48 dBA (less noisy than a library).

With a full tank, the EU2200i Camo can operate for up to 8.1 hours (fuel consumption around 0.12 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 0.95 gallon.

The EU2200i Camo generates a clean sine wave: providing <3% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

It also sports 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A output allowing you to easily charge your batteries.

Portability

Since the Honda EU2200i Camo is an inverter generator, its closed design (L20 x W11.4 x H16.7 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

With a weight of only 46.5 lbs, the EU2200i Camo may be viewed as a lightweight and portable generator. A single person should not have any problems moving it around and thus, enjoy power availability on-the-go. This convenience is further enhanced thanks to its handle (molded in the case) that allows you to carry it with ease.

Features

Panel of the Honda EU2200i Camo

The EU2200i Camo's control panel

When the generator is ready, the generator is on overload and its oil levels are insufficient, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an automatic low oil shut-off (Oil Alert®) and an overload protection (circuit breaker), giving you a peace of mind during use.

As for its accessories, apart from the previously mentioned features, the Honda EU2200i Camo also comes with the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), allowing you to start it right away.

Emissions

The Honda EU2200i Camo is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

Product Videos

The Honda EU2200i Camo versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Honda EU2200i Camo compare to generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • In terms of its dry weight, the Honda EU2200i Camo stands at only 46.5 lbs, meaning that is one of the lighter devices of the 1500-2500 rated wattage category Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the WEN 56202i, with a dry weight of only 38.6 lbs.
  • With a lowest possible noise of 48 dBA, this inverter generator places itself amongst the most quiet of the products delivering similar power.
  • The EU2200i Camo’s autonomy is somewhat low end compared to devices of its power range, as it reaches only up to 8.1 hours at 25% load on a full tank. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Westinghouse WGen2000, boasting with up to 26 hours.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator. Standing at an estimated 0.12 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, this inverter generator is somewhat average in this area compared to other devices, within the aforementioned wattage range. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Predator 2000. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.08 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 1500-2500W generators, the Honda EU2200i Camo 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.
