Power Comparison

In terms of wattage, the candidate from the Wen 56200i may lose one point to its peer. While Wen 56200i runs at 1600 watts, the Westinghouse iGen2200 is more powerful with 1800 running watts.

Westinghouse iGen2200 can peak 2200W higher than 2000W of Wen 56200i. As a result, the Westinghouse iGen2200 model will be more flexible and versatile in powering appliances or engines that need an external boost to start.

Besides, you must consider each model’s runtime. With the same 50% of the maximum capacity, the Westinghouse iGen2200 can provide up to 10 hours of working non-stop, while Wen 56200i only operates up to 6 hours. Therefore, in general, the Westinghouse iGen2200 model gives you longer runtime.

How about their fuel efficiency? This sub-criteria is essential because it decides whether you can save a big deal of money for running the machine with gasoline.

Honestly, these inverter generators are both fuel-efficient. But in particular, with 50% of the maximum capacity, the Westinghouse iGen2200 consumes 0.12 gallons per hour, whereas the Wen 56200i figure is 0.17 gallons per hour.

Westinghouse igen2200 and Wen 56200i both have low THD, suitable for powering sensitive electronic equipment. (Westinghouse iGen2200 <3% THD and Wen 56200i <1.2% THD)

At 51 dBA, the noise of Wen 56200i is slightly lower than the 52 dBA of Westinghouse igen2200.
