This review is coming from someone who has many Honda Products .. Such as a Honda Track snowblower , a single stage snowblower , Honda lawnmower , a Eu7000 Generator , a new Eu2200 Companion unit , and a 2019 Honda Ridgeline . I picked up this unit on 10/30/2020 and was shocked when I saw the outlet is rated for only 15 Amps , not the 20 Amps as Advertised on H/depots Website .. I haven't opened the Box , due to I'll be returning it .. Don't get me wrong about Honda Gens .. They are simply the Best

We’re sorry for any confusion on this model. To clarify, the EU2200i does have a 20 Amp outlet, which is the standard for this kind of duplex outlet. However, the generator itself produces a max of 18.3 Amps (2200 Watts), or 15 Amps continuously. Home Depot is probably describing it this way to differentiate it from the EU2200i Companion, which has a 30 Amp outlet to enable it to get the full power when paralleling with another EU2200i.
I purchased this model after Hurricane Laura devastated our town of Lake Charles. We were expected to not have power for 6-8 weeks, so I paid the premium for the Honda and I'm so glad I did. I wanted whatever generator I bought to be high quality and reliable and this model definitely is! Its very quiet and super fuel efficient compared to traditional generators that my co workers bought. It ran all the lights in our home, a small window unit A/C, and our refrigerator with no problem. The app is incredible for reminding you of preventive maintenance and reporting your wattage output in real time and I slept well knowing that CO Minder system would shut down the unit if CO levels got too high outside, even though it was well ventilated. Now that we have mains power back, it will be great for tailgates and camping. Very happy with my little Honda Inverter for sustaining our lives during hurricane clean up.
The unit works perfectly, you do need to order oil...

The unit works perfectly, you do need to order oil because it comes dry and with out any oil. Cheaper to buy and SEA sp or better oil by the quart. It's suggested to change the oil after 5 hours. I modified mine to run on both gas or propane.Filled with oil about 14 OZ and it started on the second pull right out of the box. I ran it on propane by installing the Hutch mountain conversion kit and worked flawlessly and the carb will not gum up. I highly recommend this unit if you want the best unit with no start up problems.
Honda makes a great generator, but I had to return the first one I bought. It would not start easy or run smooth. Idle was rough and running very rich. You could smell the exhaust, almost like the choke was on. Went to Home Depot to exchange the generator. They were very courteous and accommodating. Home Depot did not have a generator in stock so they shipped one to my house. The new generator runs excellent ( just like a Honda should). I am very pleased with the way Home Depot handled everything and my new generator.
Light weight at 46 lbs, powerful with 2200 watts peak, 1800 watts running, quiet, and dependable. Starts on first or second pull.Less expensive alternatives available but nothing else approaching Honda quality. Just bought and installed a propane conversion kit available elsewhere; no longer have to worry about storing gas or clogged carburetors. Researched this purchase extensively beforehand and overwhelming verdict was to buy the Honda once and never have to worry again. Highly recommend!
This Honda 2200i Generator really got immediate use . We were at our Mountain home in WV when we heard hurricane Dorian was headed up the NC coast toward our Garland Shores home. I went online and checked on my Home Depot App and found one Honda left at Waynesboro VA . I ordered it and paid for it online and as we headed home to NC went by Waynesboro Home Depot where it was waiting with my name on it . When we got home Dorian came thru and our electric went out at 0400 . No worry’s I had the generator oiled up and 1 gallon of gas installed and ready to run . It started effortlessly and ran over 5 hours non stop without adding more fuel . We operated our refrigerator , microwave , coffee maker and some lights along with our TV and WIFI to watch weather information . The Honda 2200i Generator is lightweight and runs quiet on very little fuel . It starts easy and provided enough power to operate what I needed when I needed it most !
One of the best products I have ever used. Use these mostly for hunting and around the house!
-Run's Ice Eaters with ease, or saws when cutting deer lanes in the woods.
-Great for camping
-Works amazing when the power goes out
