The Honda EU3200i generator offers quiet operation in a compact package
One of our coasts is in the Gulf of Mexico and the other is in the Atlantic Ocean, and in Florida we want to focus on backup power options during hurricane season. Not only are they useful for disasters, but they also come in handy when camping and tailgating. The Honda Super Quiet EU3200i portable generator is making its debut, and it has a lot to offer.
The Honda EU3200i Portable Generator features a fuel-injected 3200-watt GX130 engine. This is a step up from the 3000 watt unit, giving you extra bits to run multiple projects or overcome more startup surges.
Honda tells us that its Eco Throttle system provides excellent fuel efficiency, so based on an 800-watt load, you can expect up to 8.6 hours of runtime from its 1.2-gallon tank. At full load, it takes 3.3 hours per tank.
It makes less noise than a normal conversation, operating at a noise level of 54 to 58 decibels.
Whether you need a generator to power your smart refrigerator during a power outage, or for recreational activities like RV and tailgating, the Honda EU3200i can provide consistent power to all your electronic devices, no matter their power sensitivity how. Honda's inverter technology provides the "clean" power your electronics need to avoid damage.
If you find yourself needing more power, Honda offers a paralleling kit option that allows you to connect a second EU3200i generator, doubling the available power to 6,400 watts. This is a great choice if you want the power of a high-end generator but the space-saving features of a compact generator.
Like all Honda portable generators, the EU3200i includes Co-Minder's advanced carbon monoxide detection feature that automatically shuts off when CO levels get too high.
