Honda has discontinued the popular EU2000i super-quiet series inverter generator and replaced it with a new model, the EU2200i. This radical change takes effective immediately, with new models available early in 2018, according to American Honda Motor Co., Inc.’s announcement of December 14, 2017 [1].

All Lentry® Portable Lighting Systems by Ventry Solutions, Inc. incorporate Honda super quiet series generators and the EU2000i is found on the most popular models, those with model numbers that begin with “2”. Upon receipt of the new generators at our factory, Lentry Light models that previously included EU2000is will include EU2200is instead. While no change in prices or model numbers are expected, run times and other specifications will change.

Only radical technical improvements could warrant this shift from such a popular generator to any other; indeed, the primary difference is a 10% increase in power without any remarkable increase in size, weight, or noise. The EU2200i offers 2200W max output and 1800W rated compared to the EU2000i at 2000W and 1600W respectively. The new generators’ ease of use and maintenance and overall dependability have also improved, thanks to notable enhancements to the oil, fuel, ventilation, starting, and power production systems in the EU2200i. The new generator is powered by the Honda GXR120 Commercial Series four-stroke engine instead of the GX100.

Lights with EU2000i generators will soon increase to 2200W (1800W rated) with the EU2200i.

20 years ago, Honda pioneered the use of inverters in portable generators, offering generators that produced power “closer to ‘line power’ than any other non-inverter generator design,” according to Honda’s press release regarding the transition of EU2000i and EU2000i Camo to EU2200i and EU2200i Camo generators (new EB2200i generators are also mentioned). This means that the power generated by Honda inverter generators, including the EU1000i, EU2000i, and now the EU2200i, all of which are utilized in Lentry Portable Power & Light Systems, is as “clean” as that from your home and office. It is safe and appropriate to use these generators to run sensitive computer equipment. This remains a significant benefit of the new 2200W generators and, therefore, all models of Lentry Portable Lighting.

Lentry models, like this one with its legs and light retracted, will soon feature EU2200is instead.

PDF file of this notice, which can be printed or shared.

It will take some time after receipt of new generators at our factory for Ventry Solutions, Inc.’s product photos, website, sales literature and other materials to reflect the new EU2200i generator. We will release additional information gradually and as it becomes available. In the meantime, those with either generator, the discontinued Honda EU2000i or the brand new EU2200i generator, may purchase All-Terrain Lentry Power & Light Systems with everything except the generator and put together a complete Lentry unit in about 15 minutes. Legs, lights, and other components retrofit to existing generators.
