The Honda EU2000i 2000-watt inverter Portable Generator unit offers unmatched reliability and performance in a small package. Its powered by the large Honda GX100 98.5cc engine which turns out a decent 1,600 running watts and 2,000 peak watts.
Key Features and Benefits
- Super Quiet Operation: it is so quiet you forget you’re are using a portable generator. The EU2000i runs at 53 to 59 dBA sound levels which is less than a normal conversation. This makes it ideal for camping, supplemental RV power and any other activity that requires unobtrusive power supply.
- Lightweight and Compact: the EU2000i is designed with advanced inverter technology to be incredibly light and portable. It weighs a slight 46 pounds and features a convenient carrying handle. Its small enough to fit in the family car for a trip to the countryside.
- Fuel Efficient: the EU2000i runs for up to 8.1 hrs on a single tank. Honda introduced an Eco Throttle system which adjusts engine speed to align with the load saving a whole lot of gas. This makes it ideal for use overnight.
- Advanced Inverter Technology: Honda’s inverter technology enables the unit to deliver clean, stable power devoid of harmful fluctuations. This means that you can use it to power computers, laptop and cell phone chargers and other sensitive electronic devices.
- Parallel Capability: found yourself in a situation where 2,000 watts is not enough? The EU2000i allows you to connect a second EU2000i for doubled power output. This is achieved with an optional cable which you can easily connect.

What People Who Bought The Honda EU2000I Love About It
“I bought a Honda EU2000i in 2004 after a series of hurricanes in Florida left my family without power. 13 years later, we just spent 8 days without power after hurricane Irma. During this outage we used our Honda 2000i to run the fridge, fans and lights while charging all our rechargeable devices.
This generator is amazingly easy to use, easy to start, quiet, dependable and runs 8-10 hours on a full tank of gas. One of my favorite features is the eco-throttle. It runs the generator at a lower (and quieter) level when less power is required and cranks up to full speed when more load is applied. This makes the generator fuel efficient and quiet. If you risk losing power to your home, you will never regret making this purchase.”
“I ordered the generator on 9/5 as Hurricane Irma was approaching Florida. It shipped from Washington State and arrived early on 9/7. FEDEX moved it fast but would not have been possible without the company shipping it immediately. We lost power for 12 hours and this generator powered my fridge, a standalone freezer in the garage, my tv, cable box, modem and AT&T power box so we could still use Uverse. The only thing we didn’t have was more extension cords. Thank You!”
“I use marine-grade gasoline, not ethanol for better performance through the years. If you change the internal oil, this generator will run for years. I love this quiet, light weight generator. It is our second. The first one supplied power on a houseboat for eight years and was put into constant use the past 10 days with Irma. The new one arrived within days thanks to the Mower Shop and FedEx for expediting delivery despite the fact I opted just for Amazon Prime. Handy for our electric chain saw, moving around the yard with only 40 lbs. and a 2.5-gallon gas can for refills. Five downed trees and the new generator just chugged along. The older one was powering the lobby of a hotel, so they could have light, charging stations for cell phones and keep an aquarium alive. It handled two power strips. Best to have the biggest gauge extension cord available between the generator and power strips where people start plugging in. Remember generator should be at least 15′ away from an inside space.”

It has lots of amazing reviews, people just love this generator. It would be my all time pick as number 1, but it is not CARB compliant. Today, that probably doesn’t matter, unless you are in California, but it may be a problem in the future. I am keeping an eye out for a similar product from Honda that is CARB compliant and I will keep you informed.
It is pricey but you get what you pay for, years of fantastic service.
