Key Features And Benefits
- Lightweight And Portable: the WH2200iXLT weighs in at 43pounds- about the same as a bulky suitcase. The built in carrying handle completes its ultra-portable profile making it easy to stuff in the back seat of your family car for a weekend in the outdoors.
- Fuel Efficient: the advanced inverter technology ensures this unit is quite frugal with gas. It boasts an impressive 13 hour run time at 25% load on a 1.3-gallon tank. It features an “efficiency mode” which cuts back on engine speed as load is shed thereby further reducing consumption.
- Parallel Capable: sometimes, 1,800 watts won’t just be enough. The Westinghouse WH2200iXLT got you covered. It can be paired with another unit with the Westinghouse Inverter Parallel cord (sold separately) for a solid 3,600 watts of clean power.
- Quiet Operation: The WH2200iXLT runs at a quiet 52dB at 25% load. This is quieter than normal conversation, making it ideal for use when camping and other activities that relative silence is required.
- Safe Power: this portable inverter generator produces power with less than 3% total harmonic distortion, making it safe for sensitive electronic devices like laptop and phone chargers.
