Note : There has been an official recall from Honda on March 20, 2019 of the the following models :
- Recalled : Honda EU2200i, EU2200i Companion, EU2200i Camo, EB2200i — View PDF of the problem and additional details, such as the units affected.
For an equally good alternative, I would highly recommend the new 2200W Yamaha EF2200iS — a 2200 watt inverter generator released in 2019. This is an excellent generator that is on par with the now recalled (and unavailable) Honda EU2200i.
Update (June 8, 2019) : Currently, it appears that Honda has rectified the recall as they are selling the EU2200i generator again. My recommendation is to contact the seller (retailer) before purchasing the generator to ensure that the unit you are buying is good; not affected by the recall, or has been fixed by Honda. Don’t buy a unit fixed by a third-party. Make sure it’s been officially repaired by a Honda authorized dealer.
