Honda 2200 Generator

Power. It’s essential to our daily lives, moving and operating all the appliances and lighting that we need to be productive. The Honda 2200 generator can operate a large range of appliances including a refrigerator, oven, and blender which makes it a great option for camping or RV trips. It runs at 1800 watts and the inverter allows you to charge electronic devices too. It’s the perfect option for emergency backup power at home when needed.

The EU2200i is an inverter generator. It produces power with low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). An inverter generator electronically throttles the power up and down to meet demand instead of allowing it to run at full power all of the time. This creates efficiencies which results in not having to fill up the gas tank as often. Inverter generators are also a quieter option than their counterparts. 


Power and Consumption

The Honda EU2200i packs 10% more power than the previous model, the EU2000i. The EU 2000i was discontinued in 2018 when the EU2200i replaced it. It still maintains the same lightweight, compact design and holds a powerful, yet quiet, 121cc GXR120 4-stroke engine. It runs on regular unleaded gasoline. The fuel tank is small, holding .95 gallons. A single tank will give you a run time of 3.2 hours at full load, and just over 8 hours at quarter-load. 

What Will the Honda 2200 Generator Power?

The EU2200i can power an energy star refrigerator or freezer, microwave, hair dryer, small AC units, incandescent lighting, portable fans, TV/DVD player, computer, coffee maker, garage door opener and more. Note that not all items can be powered simultaneously, but you can refer to the product manual for more capacity details.


The Honda GRX120 commercial series engine powers the generator. It offers reliability and fuel efficiency in a lightweight package. The generator weighs approximately 47 pounds. The size of the generator’s engine correlates to how much power it can produce. At the top of the unit is a handle molded into the housing making it easy to transport. 

Starting the Honda 2200i Generator

The generator is started with a hand-pull cable with operational contact points color-coded for easy identification. A lot of users want an electric start option. The good news is one can be installed. Browse our selection of high-quality electric start kits.

Quiet Operation

The 2200i operates at 47 to 56 dBA, which makes it one of the quietest generators on the market. If a quiet operation is important to you, then this is the generator for you. 

Fuel-Off Switch

The Honda 2200i has a new Fuel-Off feature. This allows you to shut off the fuel flow while the engine continues to run until the majority of the fuel is consumed. This is a useful feature to use prior to storing and prevents stale fuel issues. Without this feature, draining the carburetor would be a requirement after use.

Honda My Generator App

Honda’s exclusive My Generator app offers generator operation and monitoring. Need to stop your generator wirelessly? Monitor its activity? Or receive service reminders? The app has you covered.It has Bluetooth capability as well. 

Advanced Carbon Monoxide Detection

The carbon monoxide detection system continually monitors the CO levels around the generator. If the CO levels spike to unacceptable levels, then the detection system will shut down the generator before they become too high.

Double Generator Power

Adding another 2200i can double your power capacity. Two identical models can be paralleled together with a cable for 4400 watts of power.

The Advantages

The Honda EU2200i inverter generator offers an additional 200 watts of power compared to the EU2000i model. However, it provides this additional output at the same cost, same noise-level, and same lightweight housing.

It has a clear and easy starting process, with indicator lights to guide you through. The simple, control panel is also easy to use and offers many different features.

It is reliable and fuel-efficient.

It is quieter than other competing models.

The fuel-off switch saves the trouble of removing the carburetor to empty excess fuel. It allows the generator to run dry before storage.

Its parallel capabilities allow you to double the output of power by easily connecting it to another unit. 

Honda EU2200i portable inverter comes with a 3-year residential and commercial warranty that covers the generator 100%.

The generator can be upgraded with a propane conversion kit, which will allow you to run your EU2200i off of propane or gas with a flip of a switch.
