If you need a product that is a reliable power source on the go, then an inverter generator may be the product for you. Inverter generators are quiet, and ideal for camping, jobsite, and at-home power outage needs. Westinghouse offers two very similar inverter generators, with a few key differences you should know about before making a purchase. Let’s take a look at both, and see which one would be the best fit for your needs!
Westinghouse WH2200iXLT Inverter Generator
The Westinghouse WH2200iXLT inverter generator is a lightweight generator at only 43 pounds, for easy portability wherever you need it to work. This product is ideal for sensitive electronics such as televisions, laptops, and cellphones, for your convenience. The Westinghouse WH2200iXLT has 1,800 running watts, and peak wattage of 2,200.
This product comes with great fuel efficiency, as one single tank of gas lasts 13 hours at 1/4 of a load. This would allow you to run the product overnight with ease, making it ideal for camping or power outages. This product also runs very quietly, at only 59 decibels at half load, so you won’t disturb any neighboring people. This product comes with parallel power capabilities for your added convenience, as well as low oil shutdown for motor protection.
The Westinghouse WH2200iXLT is designed to remove voltage drops and spikes for safe usage, and has a low amount of total harmonic distortion. This product’s engine is also very fuel efficient by adjusting the power it produces according to the needs of plugged in devices, rather than running at full speed the entire time.
This product comes with asymmetrical fans to ensure that the product stays cool and runs quietly, as well as a dual muffler design for added quiet running. To further quiet the device, the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT comes with an insulated acoustic hood. This product is CARB and EPA compliant for your added protection.

Westinghouse iGEN2200 Inverter Generator
The Westinghouse iGEN2200 inverter generatorcarries many similar features to the previous product, including a lightweight design at only 46 pounds. This product also works with sensitive electronics with ease, such as televisions, cellphones, and laptops. This product delivers a running wattage of 1,800watts with peak wattage of 2,200 watts for your added convenience.
Like the former product, the Westinghouse iGEN2200 also comes with great fuel efficiency by offering 12 hours of runtime at 1/4 of a load. This is accompanied by a very quiet runtime, creating only 52 decibels at 25 percent of a load.
The Westinghouse iGEN2200 also comes with an Efficiency Mode to help each tank of gas work for much longer. This product is EPA, CARB, and USFS compliant for your added protection and safety. This product comes with low oil shutoff, to protect the motor from unintentional damages, as well as overload protection.
This generator offers parallel capabilities for extra power, but another generator and the Parallel cord to make this possible are sold separately. This product provides two outlets that offer 120 volts, and two USB outlets for your added charging convenience.

- 1.2 gallon gas tank
- 12 hour runtime at 25% load
If you need an inverter generator that offers a lighter weight, higher runtime at 25% load, fuel efficiency, and noise reduction in a variety of forms, then the Westinghouse WH2200iXLT may be the best inverter generator for you. Alternatively, if you need a product that is slightly heavier, but offers USFS compliancy, an Efficiency Mode, as well as quiet runtime, then the Westinghouse iGEN2200 inverter generator may work better for your needs. Both of these products are reliable and can work overnight, making either an excellent option for a new inverter generator!
