Description

Zoom on the Ryobi RYi2322E

In summary, the Ryobi RYi2322E is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • 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 Ryobi RYi2322E in use

The Ryobi RYi2322E

The Ryobi RYi2322E's design includes a gasoline-fueled 79 cc OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120V output, it gives a running wattage of 1800W and also a peak wattage of 2300W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (Ryobi parallel kit (opens in a new tab) not included), this power can be doubled when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

With a noise rating of 57 dBA (less noisy than a refrigerator), the inverter generator features Ryobi's EasyStart pull-start mechanism (more information below), but also a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

The RYi2322E can operate for up to 10.3 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.12 GPH), due to its fuel capacity of 1.2 gallon.

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the RYi2322E generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

It also sports 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) allowing you to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

Portability

Since the Ryobi RYi2322E is an inverter generator, its closed design (L25.1 x W13.3 x H18.4 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

As the RYi2322E's weight is only 57 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. In addition, with its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle, it may be shifted with ease, once placed on the floor.

EasyStart Mechanism

Ryobi’s EasyStart mechanism

The unit benefits from Ryobi’s EasyStart mechanism. This 3-step starting system allows you to easily start your generator. It works in the following way:

  1. Place the dial on the “COLD START” position
  2. Pull the recoil until the engine runs
  3. Let the engine run 15 to 30 seconds and place the dial on the “RUN/RE-START” position

Features

The RYi2322E's control panel

A digital data center, one of the features of the RYi2322E's control panel, gives you information on the fuel level, remaining run time and power output, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

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

It also benefits from Ryobi's CO DETECT technology, which is designed to monitor the level of carbon monoxide present during the generator's operation. If the generator is positioned incorrectly and carbon monoxide levels rise to an unsafe level, the generator will automatically shut down. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Ryobi RYi2322E also comes with several accessories, including: battery charger, tool kit, oil and funnel.

GenControl

GenControl allows remote monitoring

Ryobi’s GenControl technology lets you control your generator from your smartphone. It allows you to always know exactly what is going on and to make adjustments when needed, so that everything keeps running without unexpected power loss.

Using Bluetooth technology, the generator communicates with the GenControl app (available on iOS (opens in a new tab) and Android (opens in a new tab) devices) to conveniently monitor power consumption, fuel level, remaining runtime, and even remotely shut off your generator directly from your smartphone.

The information displayed within the GenControl App is identical to the information displayed on the LCD screen of the RYi2322E. Moreover, the GenControl app also supports parallel operation.

Emissions

The Ryobi RYi2322E 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, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

The Ryobi RYi2322E versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Ryobi RYi2322E compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • As its dry weight is 57 pounds, the Ryobi RYi2322E is one of the heavier of the inverters which can generate 1500 to 2500 running watts. 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.
  • Among the generators of a comparable running wattage, this inverter generator with a lowest noise of 57 dBA can be judged as noisy. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Honda EU2200i, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 48 dBA.
  • The RYi2322E, offering a run time of up to 10.3 hours with a full tank at a 25% load, falls within the average autonomy range when compared to its peers. 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.
  • 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. As this inverter generator uses an estimated 0.12 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, it finds itself in the average gasoline consumption range of similar products. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.08 GPH, the DuroMax XP2300iH is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the Ryobi RYi2322E is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
