Parallel capability is an additional benefit of inverter technology.
Using a special cable or kit, you can link two EU1000i, two EU2200i, 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 EU2200i with a built-in 30-amp receptacle. This model is designed specifically for parallel operation with another EU2200i. It's also perfect for RV and use with a transfer switch, where a 30A outlet might be preferable.
Honda offers several kits and cables as optional accessories.
|2 EU1000i||Parallel cables|
|2 EU2200i||Parallel cables|
|1 EU2200i and 1 EU2200i Companion||Parallel cables (incl. 30A RV adaptor plug)|
|2 EU3000i Handi||Parallel cables|
|2 EU3000is||Parallel cables|
The EU2200i are only compatible with EU2000i or EU2000i Companion models within a specific serial number range:
Connecting an EU2200i with an EU2000i or EU2000i Companion that is not within the compatible serial range above may cause a low voltage output, which can damage tools and appliances powered by the generators. Units outside the compatible serial number range should only be paralleled with another EU2000i.Learn more about paralleling the EU2200i and EU2000i here
