Description

Zoom on the Honda EU7000iS

In a nutshell, the Honda EU7000iS is a quiet portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • People occasionally participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

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 EU7000iS in use

The Honda EU7000iS

The Honda EU7000iS's core is the 389 cc Honda GX390 EFI OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120/240V, it provides a running wattage of 5,500W and a peak wattage of 7,000W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (parallel kit not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

The inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism and also a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a low noise of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a quiet suburb) which places it in our list of the 10 quietest portable generators. The EU7000iS can also be remotely started, offering further convenience (via the My Generator App).

The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system enhances the engine's reliability, lowers fuel consumption, improves startup, reduces servicing, boosts stale fuel resistance, and offers better altitude adaptability.

The EU7000iS can operate for up to 16 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.32 GPH), due to its fuel capacity of 5.1 gallons.

The EU7000iS generates a clean sine wave: providing <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle

Even if this Honda generator isn't quite RV Ready, it still allows for an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor, thanks to its L5-30R receptacle. Besides, due to the featured twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the EU7000iS is transfer switch ready: you may connect it to a breaker box to power your household during a power outage.

Portability

As the Honda EU7000iS is an inverter generator, its encased design (L33.4 x W27.6 x H28.4 in) offers more aesthetics than a conventional, open frame product. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 263.2 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. Still, once it is on the ground, its set of wheels and its folding handle can easily solve the issue of low mobility and allow for easy relocation of the device.

Features

Panel of the Honda EU7000iS

The EU7000iS's control panel

One of the many EU7000iS's features is the iMonitor™ data center, included in its control panel, which conveniently provides information on the voltage, power output and lifetime run hours and thus, helps you monitor its activity and status.

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

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the inverter generator.

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

Accessory-wise, along with the previously mentioned features, the Honda EU7000iS is packaged with the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helping you start the device right away. An official storage cover is available, as a separate purchase.

CO Minder

CO Minder of the Honda EU7000iS

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.

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 EU7000iS 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, fuel level, or estimated remaining runtime. You’ll also receive warnings and notifications to remind you of routine maintenance.

Even better, the app allows you to control multiple, compatible Honda generators from a single mobile device, and to remotely start and stop the EU7000iS without a key fob.

Emissions

The Honda EU7000iS is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

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

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

Product Videos

The Honda EU7000iS versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Honda EU7000iS compare to generators of similar power (between 5000 and 6000 W).

  • A weight of 263.2 lbs makes the Honda EU7000iS one of the heaviest devices in the 5000-6000 rated wattage range. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Champion 201238, standing at just 101.4 lbs.
  • With a lowest noise rating of 52 dBA, the inverter generator is one of the most quiet of the generators of similar power.
  • The EU7000iS provides a higher run time than similarly powerful devices, reaching up to 16 hours at 25% load. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Westinghouse WGen6000, as it provides up to 18 hours.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. This inverter generator is one of the more fuel efficient models of the aforementioned output range, as its estimated fuel consumption reaches just 0.32 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.26 GPH, the Champion 201238 is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 5000-6000W inverter generators, the Honda EU7000iS 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.

    Love it. Bought two for whole house backup but sold one on very near the purchased price. I had installed Micro Start Easy Start unit; therefore, don’t need the second EU7000 to run the 4 ton AC. Very quite quite & efficient on gas. Those are just icing on the cake, the really meat is that it’s hold value like Rolex. Sold my 4 years old EU7000 $300 less than my 2018 purchased price!

    + PROS:
    • Bluetooth (loved it)
    • Value
    • Quality
    • Performance
    - CONS:
    • Heavy; wish it come with 4 wheels
    • It's already 2023, Honda needs to improve it somehow to match current market offering per price. For less than $2, you can get some powerful inverter gens, less of course quality & value.

    I have a 2018 model and a 2020 model and they both blow the 15amp fuse when trying to start when -28C or so and below but have not had any issues when warmer than that. I have removed the original batteries and wired car batteries with battery tenders due to the cold climate of Northern Ontario. The original batteries wouldn’t cut it.
    Temped to try a 20 amp fuse but concerned with the possible consequences.

    Other than this issue they are excellent generators.

    + PROS:
    • Quiet. Smooth running. Long running on a tank.
    - CONS:
    • Cold start issue.

    Just finished reading your review of the Honda 7000 generator and agree with you that it is a great generator and it should be for price.

    I was hoping the article would address a major flaw in the design of the electric start system on 2020 model. From my and my neighbours experiences this winter we quickly discovered the electric starting is not designed to function at temperatures below -15C (+5F). Below this temperature the 15 amp fuse blows.

    So those in climates that experience cold temperatures or colder be aware the “Cold Climate Technology” label is very misleading. If this was an automobile it would be considered unacceptable but Honda is aware of the fault and do not have solution they are willing to implement.

    Making this fault know to potential buyers will help the issue be addressed.

    Thanks for your article

    + PROS:
    • Great quiet power
    - CONS:
    • At temperatures below -15C (+5F) the electric start blows the 15 amp fuse on the 2020 model. Not sure if the same is true for 2021.
