Double your power with Parallel Capability

Parallel capability is an additional benefit of inverter technology.

Using a special cable or kit, you can link two EU1000i, two EU2000i, two EU3000 Handi, or two EU3000is generators together to get as much as double the output. (Please note: you can only parallel two identical units together.)

This gives you extra power when you need it, without having to trade up for a larger, heavier generator. You get more power without sacrificing portability.

Honda also offers a special Companion version of the popular EU2000i with a built-in 30-amp receptacle. This model is designed specifically for parallel operation with another EU2000i. It's also perfect for RV and use with a transfer switch, where a 30A outlet might be preferable.

Parallel Options

Honda offers several kits and cables as optional accessories.

Model Options
2 EU1000i Parallel cables
2 EU2000i Parallel Kit (recommended) or Parallel cables
1 EU2000i and 1 EU2000i Companion Parallel cables (incl. 30A RV adaptor plug)
2 EU3000i Handi Parallel cables
2 EU3000is Parallel cables
2 EU7000iS Parallel Kit, incl. 50A receptacle
  • Parallel cables allow the user to obtain the full power of both units, limited by  the capacity of an individual outlet.  Parallel cables are available for the EU1000i, EU2000i, EU3000 Handi, EU3000i, and EU7000iS.

  • If you have 2 regular EU2000i or 2 EU7000iS, consider a parallel kit. The parallel kits include a built in 30A outlet (EU2000) or 50A outlet (EU7000iS), which is capable of providing the combined full power from both generators.

  • If you have a regular EU2000i and the Companion model, you only need a parallel cord. You will be able to use the 30A outlet on the Companion to draw the full combined power of the two units.
