Zoom on the Pulsar PG2200BiS

In summary, the Pulsar PG2200BiS is a 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

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Pulsar PG2200BiS in use

The Pulsar PG2200BiS

The dual-fuel technology of the Pulsar PG2200BiS allows for an output of 120V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 1,800W and a starting wattage of 2,200W. If propane-powered, it gives 1,600 rated watts and 2,000 starting watts. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (PGiPAIRB2 parallel kit (opens in a new tab) not included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

The inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism. It is rated for a noise of 60 dBA (just as noisy as background music).

As for its running time, the PG2200BiS, along with its 1.2 gallon fuel capacity, can run for around 8 hours at 50% load with a full tank filled with gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.15 GPH). If propane is used, it can operate for around 20 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.24 GPH).

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the PG2200BiS generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Additionally, it features 1 DC outlet: there's a 5V USB port with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

Portability

The Pulsar PG2200BiS's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L18 x W12 x H20 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

With a dry weight of 54 lbs, the PG2200BiS can easily follow you wherever your power needs are. In addition, its nifty handle (molded in the case) improves your grip, allowing for an easy transport of the PG2200BiS from place to place.

Features

Panel of the Pulsar PG2200BiS

The PG2200BiS's control panel

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

From a security standpoint, the product offers an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Pulsar PG2200BiS also is packed along with the following accessories: propane hose, tool kit, oil and funnel.

Emissions

The Pulsar PG2200BiS 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 Pulsar PG2200BiS versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Pulsar PG2200BiS compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • As its dry weight is 54 pounds, the Pulsar PG2200BiS is one of the heavier of the inverters which can generate 1500 to 2500 running watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Genmax GM2000i, standing at just 34.2 lbs.
  • When compared to devices able to produce a similar running wattage, this inverter generator and its lowest emitted noise of 60 dBA is on the noisier side. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Honda EU2200i with only 48 dBA.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of around 8 hours at 50% load, the PG2200BiS benefits from a higher run time than many inverter generators of a similar output. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Westinghouse iGen2200, reaching around 10 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, with an estimated fuel consumption of just 0.15 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, is one of the more fuel efficient generators, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Westinghouse iGen2200, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.11 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W dual fuel inverter generators, the Pulsar PG2200BiS is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
