Product Overview

The Westinghouse iGen2500 Portable Inverter Generator, available in TrueTimber Kanati camouflage with hunter’s orange accents, produces up to 2,500 peak watts and 2,200 running watts, making it perfect for emergency home backup during a power outage or for recreational uses such as camping and tailgating. Powered by a 4-Stroke OHV Westinghouse Engine, the iGen2500 is engineered to automatically adjust its engine speed to produce only the amount of power you need for enhanced fuel efficiency. The iGen2500 can simultaneously power most large appliances such as refrigerators and furnaces while powering any necessities you may need while traveling. It’s lightweight and portable, weighing 48 lb. with a built-in carrying handle. The iGen2500 has an ultra-low tone for community-friendly use, operating as low as 52 dBA which is quieter than the average conversation. Unlike traditional generators, the iGen2200 safely powers sensitive electronics like plasma/LCD televisions, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices by producing clean, stable power at less than 3% THD. If you need more power, the iGen2500 is parallel capable and can be paired with another Westinghouse Inverter Generator using the Westinghouse WHPC Parallel Cord (sold separately). The iGen2500 has built-in safety features including low oil shutdown and overload protection while backed by a 3-year limited warranty and lifetime technical support.

Questions & Answers


Does it have an electric start? If not, can one be added?

Asked by Mark June 26, 2020

No, the iGen2500CAMO does not come with electric start and is not engineered with one. Please keep in mind that any permanent modifications may null and void your warranty.

Asked by justsaying June 21, 2020

As long as your are ensuring proper maintenance of your generator and checking the components periodically, you can keep it running for a longer duration of time when you are refilling the gas tank.

Which extension cord do you recommend to power a full size double door refrigerator during emerge...

Asked by Jose September 15, 2018

Hi! You will want to seek out a 10 or 12-gauge extension cord, at least 20-25' long. A 12-gauge extension cord is typically what is recommended for 20A outlets, like the ones on the iGen2500. A 10-gauge is one step thicker, and is typically recommended up to 30A. You will want at least 20' because you should operate your generator at least 15' away from doors, windows, and vents.

Asked by Baxter July 10, 2018

As long as the running wattage does not surpass 1800 watts and the peak wattage does not surpass 2500 watts on your golf cart, then the iGen2500CAMO would be more than able to easily power it.

What is the running watts

Asked by Bill March 20, 2018

This unit has a 2200 running watts rating.

Asked by Thom January 6, 2018

Yes you can!

I've had other generators 4000 watt or more. None would pull the a.c. on my r.v. Why do you think...

Asked by topper January 2, 2018

How many BTUs is your A/C? This one can easily handle a 13,000btu. It sounds like you may have an issue with your compressor. Or perhaps it was an issue with your generators.

This iGEN2500 unit replaces a Cart Gen that gov't paid for, from the 2005 hurricane season which served well over the years, but, the five gallon per 12 hour gas consumption was the reason for my igen2500 purchase. And, as having limited strength after back surgery, the Cart Gen's several hundred pounds weight made for a difficult time in setting up backup power. Since I only needed to sustain the two major appliances that are mandatory during a hurricane induced power outage or other, the fridge and a window AC unit, this Westinghouse unit is PERFECT.... I did some start/run current measurement testing for the fridge and AC with a "peak/hold" clamp on current meter and verified my intended load(s) would work well with the 2500. The fridge start current measured ~ 6.8 amps, with only ~1 amp running. The Window AC, (LG LW6017R) - 6000 BTU unit measured ~ 13 amps starting with an average 3.3 amps running. These measurements were made running on the iGEN2500 power to ensure the start currents were OK. The 2500 has the reserve power to start my Window AC with only the monetary "kick on surge" to get up to speed. With these two loads, (and a handful of LED lights), I am expecting the ten hours per tank/gallon of gas as this load is measured at about the 25% load rating. So, if you are in need of CLEAN sine wave power during a power outage this iGEN2500 is just the ticket.... It is recommended that you use the supplied oil - for break in and being a "bit" an-l, I changed the oil after only a 15-20 minute warm-up just to give a clean flush before the break in.and refilled with a regular oil during break in Be certain to let the gen warm up at least 5 to 10 minutes if possible to prevent a "hard-ON load" when first started - just common sense.... After several break in oil changes with VARYING LOADS, hitting 1.97 KW output without any problem for a 5-10 minute run. (Always cool the gen running with NO load for ~ 10 minutes before shutdown). I am now running Valvoline Full Synthetic High Mileage 10W-30 oil with supposedly the extra additives that provide the best protection. Again, oil is cheap, even full synthetic, so change it often. P.S. Do NOT buy/use any "synthetic blend" as these are rip-offs often containing less than 10% synthetic oil but at darn near the price of full. Buy FULL SYNTHETIC only. AND, do not be cheap, use ONLY E-0 Ethanol FREE gas for this and ANY gas powered gear you may have. Lastly, use a gas stabilizer in the fuel also. I keep my generator tank near full for storage as I am a believer to keep the seals and gaskets "wet" so as to not dry out and very probably leak when filled with gas. NOT a ding on Westinghouse, it is just a practice I perform and I know that my IGEN2500 is ready to fire, with only one pull - every time.

Our unit arrived with a broken spark plug and spark plug wire boot. It would not operate as expected until a replacement was purchased. However, it can now run the A/C on our Airstream.

I received the iGen2600 exactly as described. Added oil and gas, started on first pull. Went through the break-in process and all is working great. This generator runs RV camper lights, tv, fridge and small air-conditioner with no problem or lack of power. Quiet as described, a great camping generator. Lightweight and easy to carry with one hand. Quite a bit of research went into this buy and so far it is a solid purchase.

I purchased two of these. One product runs top notch, spot on! The other one however.... Upon opening the box one of the cover screws fell out, (Part #100507 Screw M6x16) and I can not re-install. Would not start. I replaced the spark plug with a NGK plug and the motor fired right up. Engine stalled out and died after running 30 mins without any load. Repeated the same process while I was seasoning the engine. three times the engine died with less than 2 hrs run time total. I may have to contact the manufacturer if I can not resolve this.

Short and sweet! I did A LOT of research and you should too. Reviews indicated units arrived with broken spark plugs, bought a new one before my unit arrived. When it did arrive, yep spark plug was broken. Reviews also said to use a magnetic oil filler plug and break unit in properly. I did and glad I did. Lot of garbage in the first oil change at 1 hour. Now for the good, reviews suggested putting upper cylinder oil in cylinder without spark plug and pulling it slowing to lubricate the cylinder prior to starting. I did this with 2 tablespoons of Lucas oil, installed new plug and the dang thing started first pull. Smoked due to the oil but cleared up in minutes and off we go. Runs quiet and YAHOO, mine came with an hour meter. Wish I had known that before I installed the hour meter. It says nothing about it in the owners manual but the last item listed under the digital display is LIFE TIME RUN HOURS!. Time will tell but I will update if there is a need.
