Safe…

When wildfires are raging, it’s important to prevent adding to the inferno. In building the Westinghouse iGen2200 generator, the design team kept this in mind and included a spark arrestor that has been approved for use by the US Forrest Service. It’s safe to use in all parks and forests.

…and Sound

The National Park Service requires that all noise remains below 60 decibels. This includes generators and serves a very important purpose.

Recently concerns have been raised about the impact of noise on wildlife. This is particularly concerning in areas designed to preserve the habitat of native creatures. Most campers are very mindful of this, out of concerns about potentially impacting local birds, deer, and all the other living things that call the forest their home.

With the Westinghouse iGen2200 generator, you can show your respect the bliss of a quiet campground without missing out on fresh-brewed coffee, a fully charged phone, or a well-connected laptop. Now you can enjoy all that nature has to offer without sacrifices modern conveniences or worrying about disrupting the wildlife that you look forward to seeing while camping in the woods.

You won’t ever have to worry about bothering your neighboring campers when you bring along the Westinghouse iGen2200, and it makes enough power, you can even offer to share.

Versatility

When you need your corded power tools to work far from home, the Westinghouse iGen2200 generator is the perfect solution. It's compact design, lightweight, and convenient handle make it perfect to grip in one hand while you carry your electric trimmers, chainsaw, drill, sander, or other tools in your other hand. Never again will you need to daisy-chain 5 extension cords to reach the far edges of your yard.

But that’s not all the Westinghouse iGen2200 is good for. When the weather turns fierce and drives you back indoors, be sure to keep the Westinghouse iGen2200 handy. It’s great for keeping your power flowing when a storm starts blowing.

Of course, your whole house may require a bit more power than the iGen2200 can offer all on its own. That’s why Westinghouse designed it to easily run in parallel with all its friends. With just one cord, the Westinghouse parallel cord, this generator can be connected to its twin or an even more powerful sibling like the Westinghouse iGen2500 generator.
