The perfect portable inverter generator, but at a price.

Honda EU2000i Review: The Perfect Portable Inverter Generator

The Honda EU2000i is a popular portable inverter generator which is conveniently quiet, remarkably lightweight and moveable, and is impressively powerful while remaining fuel-efficient.

It comes rigged up with a feature called the Eco Throttle ™, which enables optimal fuel efficiency and engine speed. It works to regulate the engine so that it only runs as fast as needed.

The  Eco Throttle™ enabled machine will run for over 8 hours on the 1.1 gallon fuel supply.

The generator runs on 12-volt DC batteries, and you can buy a charging cord to go along with the machine. If one is not quite enough, the purchase of a parallel cable gives you the possibility of 3200 Watts by running this generator in sync with its companion kit.

but with proper care and maintenance this piece of equipment offers you a guaranteed 5000 hours (208 complete days) of highly fuel-efficient work.

It generator comes with a warranty that lasts three years.


At $1000, this is a top of the range piece of equipment.

We reckon it’s worth it – but if this is over your budget there are other models which are cheaper but come with fewer features.

Brand Reputation

Honda has an unparalleled reputation for engine design.
