Product Overview

The WEN 2,250-Watt Inverter Generator provides clean energy, free of voltage spikes and drops, without all the noise of a regular generator. Produce up to 2250 surge watts and 1800 rated watts of power. Our 79.7 cc 4-stroke OHV engine operates at an extremely quiet 53 decibels at quarter load, quieter than a window air conditioner or the average conversation. The WEN 2250-Watt Inverter Generator is also equipped with fuel shutoff. This feature turns off the flow of fuel, allowing for the generator to use up the remaining fuel from the carburetor before automatically shutting down. This helps fight the build-up and blockages caused by stagnant fuel inside of the carburetor, minimizing maintenance while prolonging the units lifespan. With power output designed to mirror a pure sine wave, this generator limits total harmonic distortion to under 0.3% at no load and under 1.2% at full load, making it safe to run laptops, cellphones, monitors, tablets and other sensitive electronics. The ultra-efficient 1 Gal. tank provides over 6-hours of half-load run time. The fully-packed panel comes equipped with two 3-prong 120-Volt 15 Amp NEMA 5-20R receptacles and two 5-Volt USB ports. Maximize fuel economy by engaging the eco-mode switch. This allows the generator's engine to automatically adjust its fuel consumption as items are plugged into and unplugged from the panel, preventing the unnecessary usage of gasoline.

Answer

Depends on your refrigerator requirements. FWIW: In recent blackout due to Isais storm on Long Island, ran a typical home size refrigerator/freezer 12+ hours a day for 4 days, also charging USB devices. Only shut down for overnight silence. Changed oil every 25 hours of run time per mfr instructions. (2250 model)

So far I would recommend this generator I purchased it on line and it shipped to the store when they said it would. I opened the box and inspected, when I got it home, all looks well. I have not yet put oil in or actually started it. We plan on using this to run the electric side of the camper when we are remote camping. If it works as good as it looks it would get a 5 star review.

I'm a 50-something gal who researched generators for 2 months before finally selecting one. Oil & gas filling was simple. You do need to get a ground wire for extra safety, though. The manual explains what to get. It was $5 at Home Depot. I fired it up yesterday for a test run. Started on the 2nd easy pull. I'm in a townhome community and was really pleased with how quiet it is. I'm ready for a South Florida hurricane! And buying another for my elderly parents. Oh, I also purchased the optional magnetic oil plug & the generator cover. Both really great quality. So happy with this purchase. It's a great little machine for the price. The photo is just before filling with oil.

(What's this)
Wen's Super Quiet wonder! I have lived in Florida most of my life. When a hurricane hits, my house is the first to lose power and the last to have it restored. Its essential to have a generator during these outages for obvious reasons. Over the years I've owned several generators... none as quiet or as portable as this Wenn 56225i. Its easy to start and has a gas shut-off feature that drains the carburetor before shutting off. This prevents sludge from clogging the carburetor during storage... arguably a portable generator's most common cause of failure. It will easily power a 5000 BTU air conditioner, run my well and keep a small refrigerator cold. That's all I need to survive the next big one!

(What's this)
I found this generator very quiet and easy to start. As with any of these the first task is to fill it with oil. Getting the oil level just right is a little tricky but not that hard with the funnel and hose supplied. You just have to go slow. It would help to pre-measure the oil before pouring it in but I did not do that. It would be nice if this step were easier but it just requires a little care. On the first start, I started it on a cold damp day and it only took a few pulls. After that first run it was easier. I ran about an hour for the first test run on a half tank of fuel and I could not tell from the fuel gauge it had been run. So it really sips the fuel. Nice. I was a little surprised at how quiet it was based on my past experience with generators. It's not silent. After all it is an internal combustion engine. But I've used other generators before on construction jobsites when we sometimes started early before temporary power was pulled in (in my days as a carpenter). The ones I've used are typically a lot louder than this one. I figure some of that may be due to all the cowling on it since everything is covered in a plastic housing. But mainly it is just a quiet engine that is muffled well. One of my main intended uses for this is to provide power to allow me to carry a large GPS driven goto telescope out to the middle of nowhere along with some other electronics. (scope is 80 lbs) This is a good size to power the telescope drive, dew shields (heat tape on a metal tube basically) as well as laptop and camera for a night of astrophotography. While this might not be the most common use, this generator is well suited for this and is light enough to toss in the back of a truck along with the rest of the gear for whatever outing you have in mind. The USB ports are actually also handy for powering some of the electronics I use for this. Prior to this I was tethered to where I had A/C power. Now I can get out away from everything where I have a better view of the sky.

Easy starting, simple, weight is manageable
I purchased this in Nov 2019 after borrowing the same one from a coworker for a remote worksite and being happy with how his performed. This is my main little go-to generator. It powers most of the tools, and will even power a full size electric chainsaw, albeit I have to be a bit more mindful of the chainsaw's throttle and pressure of the cut or else I'll trip the overload protection on this gen. No worries though, I'll just give it a few seconds to settle down and then reset the button. The only issue I've had with it is that sometimes after about 5 minutes of operation it'll just shut down without any warning and for no reason, but I just give it a yank on the pull cord and it always fires right back up and then stays running as long as I want it to after that. So that can be a little annoying, it could be an issue with the auto fuel shutoff feature, but I don't mind as long as that's my only complaint. It's also pretty quiet, I wouldn't say whisper quiet but definitely indoor-voice quiet.
