Ryobi RYI 2200 portable generator incorporates an inverter that supplies steady energy for delicate electronics such as tv or laptops. It has two 120V outlets and one 12V outlet. You can also connect it to another Ryobi RYi2200 with a parallel kit.
It has two carrying grips for transporting, two wheels and an extendable handle make it quite practical to move around.
This model has a 4-cycle gasoline engine with automatic idle technology. The auto-idle system can reduce fuel consumption and noise generation. Anyway, it’ll be better to turn off the auto-idle if you’re going to plug a small air conditioner, a saw or a microwave, so that the engine doesn’t have to boost its RPM’s to match the increment in load.
With 63 decibels of noise level, this device is a little bit louder than its japanese rivals, and doesn’t work as well in the long term.
The Ryobi RYi2200 is a compactly practical device for camping and tripping, but can’t power big vehicles as shown in this Ryobi inverter generator 2200 review .
The best of this generator is its convenient prize, much cheaper than the 2000w Yamaha or Honda.
Q & A – Ryobi RYi2200 Inverter Generator
What is the difference between green and grey Ryobi’s?
Mechanically, none. The only difference is the color (and maybe the price). The ID number of the green one is RYI2200 and the ID number of the grey one is RYI2200G.
What kind of appliances the Ryobi RYi2200 starts and runs?
It may vary from the wattage need or every appliance. For example, it can run a 1000w microwave. It can start and run a fridge that requires about 1350w of starting power. Or even a heater with the same wattage needs. But not all these appliances at the same time. The generator has its limits and you must calculate the surging and running watts of the total of your devices to see if it doesn’t exceed its max capacity.
Does it have an electric starter?
No. You must start it by pulling the recoil start once or twice to prime fuel into the engine. After that, it starts easily.
