Description

Zoom on the Ryobi RYi2322E

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

  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • Amateur DIY lovers

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 Ryobi RYi2322E in use

The Ryobi RYi2322E

The Ryobi RYi2322E's engine, 79 cc OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120V. It provides a running wattage of 1,800W and reaches a peak wattage of 2,300W. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (Ryobi parallel kit (opens in a new tab) not included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

Enjoying a noise rating of 57 dBA (less noisy than rainfall), this inverter generator can be started thanks to Ryobi's EasyStart pull-start mechanism (more information below), but also to a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

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

The RYi2322E 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 includes the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

It also sports 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

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. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

As the RYi2322E's weight is only 57 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. Additionally, it can be easily moved with the help of its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle, once it is on the ground.

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

Panel of the Ryobi RYi2322E

The RYi2322E's control panel

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

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 and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

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.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Ryobi RYi2322E also is packed along with the following accessories: funnel, oil, tool kit and battery charger.

GenControl

generator stats on GenControl app

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. 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.

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).

  • A weight of 57 lbs makes the Ryobi RYi2322E one of the heavier inverters in the 1500-2500 rated wattage range. 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.
  • When compared to devices able to produce a similar running wattage, this inverter generator and its lowest emitted noise of 57 dBA is on the noisier side. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU2200i, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 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. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the DuroMax XP2300iH, which is able to run for up to 13 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about 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 fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the DuroMax XP2300iH, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.08 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 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.
