A few posts ago I mentioned our generator and that we were loving it so far. We have the Honda EU2000i, and on Father’s Day we decided to really test it out. It was raining with no signs of letting up so we decided to stay in and relax. We filled the generator to its .9 gallon capacity and figured we’d make it a TV/video game/computer marathon day. The Honda EU2000i was supposed to give us 8 hours of electricity at 1/4 load according to the instructions so we figured we’d be done when it was done.
So we ran our 40″ TV, Xbox One, laptop, external hard drive, cellphone, and cellphone booster all day and were surprised to find that the generator actually out lasted us! We started just after 2 pm and finally turned off the generator just after 3 am when we couldn’t keep our eyes open any more. While I’m sure it was running on nothing but fumes in the end, that’s 13 hours of run time that we got out of it with one gallon of gas. And running all of our electronics! It ran much longer than advertised or than we expected. Running any of our electronics or power tools has not been an issue so far. Add to that how quiet the generator is, running at only 53-59 decibels (less than the average household vacuum cleaner), and I really can’t say enough good about it. Kyle and I are both very impressed with the Honda EU2000i, and we’d highly recommend it for anyone looking for a reliable power source.
I have not been paid, nor received any other compensation from Honda for this review.
