The Honda EU2200i Companion Inverter Generator is small and lightweight, with a tiny footprint that makes it simple to transport. It can also produce enough electricity for the majority of your electric appliances. This makes it an easily transportable energy source with sufficient power for many applications.
The 30A receptacle allows two EU2200i devices to be run in parallel via a simple parallel cord rather than an external parallel kit.
It produces clean, constant electricity thanks to Honda’s excellent inverter technology. It’s great for delicate electronic equipment, and it’s really quiet, making it ideal for camping or tailgating — or giving emergency power without disturbing your neighbors.
It can run over 8 hours on a single tank of gas, so the Honda EU2200i Companion Inverter Generator can run all night if you need it to. And, given the reputation of Honda generators for reliability, you can be sure it can do the job!

Generators produce electricity and inverters convert DC current to AC current. So what is an inverter generator? An inverter generator is a device that combines both of these features: it produces AC power but then converts it to DC and then the built-in inverter converts it back to AC. That technique smooths out the peaks and drops that occur throughout power generation due to small variations that occur in engine speed and other problems.
This results in “cleaner” power that is safer for electronics and can even make electric motors run more efficiently and quietly. See our articles “What is an Inverter Generator?” and “Inverter vs Generator” for more information.
Quick Tip: If you’re willing to put up with noisier operation and don’t need an inverter, you can get about twice the (still relatively clean) power for not much more money with the Honda EG4000.
