Description

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 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 in use

The Honda EU2200i Camo

The Honda EU2200i Camo's design includes a gasoline-fueled 121 cc Honda GXR120 OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120V output, it gives a running wattage of 1,800W and also a peak wattage of 2,200W. 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 is rated for a noise of 48 dBA (less noisy than bird calls). Its starting mechanism is based on a conventional pull-start mechanism.

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 0.95 gallon, the EU2200i Camo can operate 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 Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Portability

Thanks to its closed inverter generator design (L20 x W11.4 x H16.7 in), the Honda EU2200i Camo, is more esthetical than a typical, open frame generator. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

Since the EU2200i Camo weighs only 47.4 lbs, it can be labeled as a portable lightweight 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

Several light indicators serve to show you when the generator is on overload, the generator is ready and the oil level is too low.

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.

Along with the aforementioned features, from an accessory standpoint, the Honda EU2200i Camo's box includes the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which will help you start your generator promptly.

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, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

However, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

In addition, the unit meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

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 inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • As its weight is 47.4 pounds, the Honda EU2200i Camo falls in the expected weight range of the inverters in the 1500-2500 rated wattage category. 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 48 dBA, the inverter generator is one of the most quiet of the generators of similar type and power.
  • As for its autonomy, the EU2200i Camo, with an autonomy of up to 8.1 hours at a 25% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the DuroMax XP2300iH, boasting with up to 13 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. This inverter generator has an estimated fuel consumption of roughly 0.12 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, rendering it somewhat average compared to devices of a similar output. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the DuroMax XP2300iH. 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 inverter 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.
