Westinghouse WH2200iXLT vs Westinghouse iGen2200
Warranty / Certifications
All you need to do is follow the enclosed directions ( especially : DO NOT FORGET TO PROPERLY FILL IT WITH THE ENGINE OIL ! ) , and it will start every time to do it's thing. If you don't have to run it at full power, it will be quieter in the economy mode. Still, comparatively, I was surprised how...
I purchased this inverter earlier this summer to be used as a back-up for use with our motorhome. The motor home generator battery had lost all power and we were stuck in the forest with the slide out extended, with no easy way to move the coach from the camping area. Thankfully, I had purchased th...
I bought this right before football season, and have taken this generator to 5 tailgate parties, and so far - no complaints! Did my user review comparisons and decided to purchase this one over a Honda 2000 due to its lower price, and so far it has delivered as promised. It's a nice, quiet generator...
Bought this generator to power our small camper. Couldn't be happier, starts quickly and performs well. Be sure to drain the fuel from the carburetor if the generator will be stored for a month or more. Overall, great little generator.
Right out of the box this generator started up quickly and easily. The pull is so easy that someone of any age can pull start it. A generator in a neat little package that is easy to start and runs forever. I ran this generator over 14 hours on one tank of gas in economy mode. I use at a very remote...
I want to start out by saying that I own the previous version of this generator, the WH2000i. Now the only differences are a lack of 12v socket and parallel capability, everything else is the same, i think. Sorry for the length, guess this is why i don't write reviews. Anyway, i had been looking fo...
After doing my homework on multiple generators, I found this to be the best one for the value and it hasn't disappointed me. I have taken it to multiple tailgates and it has performed all day long. It's quiet, starts easy, doesn't use much fuel, and is easy to transport. I would definitely recommend...
So far its worked out great !!, use it at the race track to power my charger and other items while racing. It starts rite up and quiet too....that's a big plus when parked around other racers. got unit on sale this summer and was well worth the saving.
I got this to run the a/c unit on my travel trailer, which it does just fine or I can run the refrigerator and battery charger . Now I find myself taking it to work to run my power tool, it's small, light, quiet and great on gas.
Setup was easy and it started after just one pull. Use it as backup on my RV and it does everything but the AC.
Great for the price. Started in the first pull and was very quiet.
This generator could almost be a amazing. The service and support that Westinghouse provides and the fact they don't do a full functional systems check in China of the generator before they ship it makes this generator a waste of time and money. I received the generator, put fuel and oil in it and...
Starts super easy, runs quietly and no issues so far with about two hours running time total.
Seems to be a well built generator.Great price and quick shipping.
Started right up. Runs great. Waiting for the next camping trip.
I bought this generator a month ago and I just love how quiet it is. And it has 2 USB ports for charging our phones, iPads, and extra gadgets. Thank you Westinghouse for this affordable inverter generator. Even a woman can use.
Just the right size for our day trips to the river. Very portable- easy to move around as needed.
This iGen2200 is really quiet. Easy start up, very light weight, I got this for camping, you won't be disappointed. Produced power as stated.
I ordered this generator on Nov 29,2021 and got it four days later as expected. Shipping handled really well, just like I picked it up from the local store. I am running a test right now. No problem setting up and start it right away as instructed. I would definitely recommend to my friends to b...
Very happy with the purchase. Started on the first pull and it was a very slow and light pull. Runs super quiet and very efficient on gas.
Questions & Answers
Is this power safe for electronics?
The booklet states it is. We ran a couple of laptops on it and didn't experience any issues.
Safer than a regular generator. But I am not saying it is safe for your particular electronics.
will it run my air conditioner in my camper
If your air conditioner operates on 110 volt power (as opposed to 220v) you'll be fine so long as you're not also using a microwave or hair dryer. In other words, if your air conditioner can be powered using one of the standard outlets in your home, you shouldn't have any problems.
Yes, but only in tandem with a parallel kit it runs my 13,500 btu unit with no issues and a microwave to boot.
As long as it rated for under 3600 watts. I have a 29 foot travel trailer rated at 3000 watts so i bought to and series them together with a cord.
If it's a smaller unit, 9000btu, possible. Check specs on your AC to confirm starting amps. If it's less than18 amps (2200w/120v) you have a shot at it.
Our RV airconditioner is a Coleman 13500 BTU. This will run it IF you put an EasyStart on the AC. The normal running power of the AC is only like 1200 or 1300 watts, usually. So the problem is the power surge when the AC starts up. The EasyStart we installed makes the AC start with a gentle power curve and there is no peak surge. So the AC starts up quietly and can use this generator now.
Is this the only color it comes in ? I'm willing to pay a little more for a different color.
I own two of these, I've only seen these in blue. Buy the machine, it smokes the Honda at half the price. I recently went camping and the camp next to me had the Honda. We did a side by side and this generator was a bit quieter. It ran all night powering some lights and camp displays. Easy easy to operate and start. Best bang for the buck. Good luck.
WOW, i'm not sure. It's the only color I've seen. I can tell you it is a GREAT Inverter. I am very happy with mine, would buy again..
It’s the only color that I know of for the 2200, but the 2500 I think comes in camouflage and blue. They also make decals that fits them. Hope this helps.
As far as I know this is the only color. Westinghouse's company colors are blue and white.
lol.. They do sell a Camouflage version, it's more money, same genny.
if color matters just paint it
Would this 2,200 generator be powerful enough to run both our pellet stove and house refrigerator...
Yes, based on average estimates of pellet stove and refrigerator wattages, the iGen2200 would have more than enough power to run these appliances.
the stove is not recommended but the refrigerator turns on comfortable
NO, Not near large enough. I'm guessing you would need a 5000 wat inverter. Depends on the size of your stoves and frig.
You need to look at your appliances and see what amps are watts that it shows. If it shows the amps then add them together to be sure that both are not over 15amps because that is what the generator will distribute without possibly tripping the breaker, if it shows watts add them together and divide by 120 and make sure the number is 15 are less and you should be fine.
