Description

The EU2200i, with a classic red skin, is an alternate version of this model.

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 buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Honda EU2200i Camo is powered by a 121 cc Honda GXR120 OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 1800W as well as a peak wattage of 2200W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (Honda parallel cables (opens in a new tab) not included), this power can be doubled when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 48 dBA (less noisy than a library). Its starting mechanism is based on a conventional pull-start mechanism.

With a fuel capacity of 0.95 gallon, the EU2200i Camo may run for up to 8.1 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.12 GPH).

As the EU2200i Camo produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Portability

The Honda EU2200i Camo's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L20 x W11.4 x H16.7 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.

Weighing just 47.4 lbs, the EU2200i Camo can be considered a lightweight portable generator. 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

Some light indicators allow you to instantly see if its oil levels are insufficient, the generator is ready and the generator is overloaded.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off (Oil Alert®).

Besides the features previously mentioned, accessory-wise, the Honda EU2200i Camo comes with the usual documentation and owner's manual (opens in a new tab) needed to get you promptly started.

CO Minder

CO Minder of the Honda EU2200i Camo

CO Minder monitors the ambient CO concentration

Honda's CO Minder is a system that monitors the ambient carbon monoxide concentration, and automatically stops the engine if the sensor detects a CO level of or exceeding 800 parts per million (ppm) at a given time, or an average of 400 ppm for 10 minutes.

A CO alarm indicator will flash for about five minutes, during which it will be impossible to restart the engine.

While it’s a welcomed additional security feature, remember to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

Honda My Generator App

Honda My Generator App

Honda My Generator helps you monitor your unit

The Honda My Generator App (available on iOS and Android) makes owning the EU2200i Camo even more flexible and convenient, whether you are depending on it at home during a power outage, or enjoying an adventure at a remote campsite.

The app connects your unit and your phone via Bluetooth, across a 75-foot line of sight, giving you valuable information about your generator's operation and many additional features in the palm of your hands.

With it, you can easily monitor a range of information such as output power, lifetime run hours, oil life, or estimated remaining runtime. You’ll also receive warnings and notifications to remind you of routine maintenance.

But there’s more! The app allows you to control multiple, compatible Honda generators from a single mobile device and, even though the EU2200i Camo does not have an electric start and requires a manual start-up, you’ll be able to remotely stop it.

Emissions

The Honda EU2200i Camo is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and thus, may be used in forested areas.

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).

  • As far as its dry weight is concerned, the Honda EU2200i Camo weighs just 47.4 pounds and thus, it is one of the lighter 1500 to 2500 rated wattage generators. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Champion 200949, weighing just 38.6 pounds.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 48 dBA, it can be considered as one of the most quiet of the products generating similar power.
  • As far as autonomy is concerned, providing up to 8.1 hours of runtime with a full tank at a 25% load, the EU2200i Camo falls into the low end in comparison with other devices of a comparable power output. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Westinghouse WGen2000, reaching up to 26 hours.
  • 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 has an average fuel consumption among comparably powerful devices, as it reaches 0.12 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Predator 2000, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.08 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

What is the difference between the EU2200i Camo, the EU2200iTA3 and the EU2200TAG3?

The "G" in "EU2200TAG3" indicates that the unit includes the CO Minder technology. Regarding the rest of the model names, as a rule of thumb, they refer to the unit itself, but simply include more or less information regarding its specs, production batch, etc. Read how Honda name their generators.
