Description

Zoom on the Westinghouse iGen2550c

In a few words, the Westinghouse iGen2550c is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator perfectly suited for:

  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

In the upcoming sections, you'll discover its power characteristics, the array of outlets it presents, its overall portability, and the additional features it possesses.

Power & Run Time

Westinghouse iGen2550c is equipped with a 80 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, running on gasoline and providing 120V, boasting a running wattage of 1,800W alongside a starting wattage of 2,550W. In addition, the parallel capability (parallel kit included) empowers doubling of power output when linked to another similar or compatible unit, ensuring expanded energy capacity and reliability for various applications.

Enjoying a noise rating of 52 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a conversation at home), this inverter generator gets running thanks to a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

The iGen2550c's fuel tank holds 1.11 gallon, ensuring uninterrupted operation for up to 11.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption approximately 0.1 GPH).

The iGen2550c produces a clean sine wave: thanks to a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), your sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

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

The inclusion of a TT-30R receptacle (TT for 'Travel Trailer') makes this Westinghouse generator RV Ready, ideal for providing power to recreational vehicles.

Portability

The Westinghouse iGen2550c's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L18.5 x W11 x H18 in) provides an aesthetic advantage and contributes to quieter operation compared to any ordinary, open frame product. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

The iGen2550c boasts a weight of merely 42.4 lbs, solidifying its reputation as a lightweight, easily transportable generator. With its manageable weight, one person can easily move it around, ensuring power wherever needed. The inclusion of a handle (molded in the case) makes carrying it a breeze, adding to its convenience.

Features

The iGen2550c's control panel

The iGen2550c's control panel is equipped with a digital data center, furnishing detailed information on the fuel level, power output, lifetime run hours, voltage and frequency for you to easily track its activity and status. To offer you even more control and easy operation during nighttime, the panel is LED-lit.

In addition to this info, the device's light indicators will illuminate to indicate if the generator is ready, the generator is overloaded and the oil level is too low.

From a security standpoint, the generator is furnished with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, ensuring peace of mind during operation.

It also includes a carbon monoxide sensor. This sensor 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.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Westinghouse iGen2550c, the following accessories are also included: tool kit, funnel and oil.

The Westinghouse iGen2550c versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Westinghouse iGen2550c compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • Concerning weight, the Westinghouse iGen2550c weighs only just 42.4 pounds, distinguishing itself as one of the lighter inverter generators amidst the 1500 to 2500 rated wattage range. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Genmax GM2000i with only 34.2 pounds.
  • With a lowest possible noise of 52 dBA, this inverter generator places itself amongst the more quiet of the products delivering similar power. If you value reduced noise levels, the Honda EU2200i could be worth considering. It's one of the quietest generators in its power range, rated at 48 dBA.
  • As the iGen2550c features an autonomy of up to 11.5 hours at 25% load, it has a higher run time than an average generator of its type and power range. If wyou wish to prioritize autonomy, the DuroMax XP2300iH shines as one of the top contenders, offering one of the highest run times among generators with similar power output, totaling up to 13 hours.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator. With a fuel consumption rate around 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is one of the more fuel-efficient models within the aforementioned wattage range. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the DuroMax XP2300iH, with a fuel consumption of 0.08 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the Westinghouse iGen2550c is on the average side of the price range.

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

About Westinghouse

The US based Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment is a legacy subsidiary of the Westinghouse Electric Corporation, founded in 1886. While the company has been acquired and merged into the American CBS, the Westinghouse name remains as the brand name for many of their electrical solutions, which stretch across the scale from power plants to portable generators. Portable generators – the main product of the Outdoor Power Equipment branch of Westinghouse – used to be manufactured by Westpro Power Systems, which was bought in 2016 by Midwest Equipment. Lawn equipment, such as trimmers and blowers, is also sold under the Westinghouse brand name. All of their products are designed in the US. However, they are in many cases manufactured in China.

Warranty Information
