Honda Generators – A Rich History

In 1947, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced the development of a new portable fuel operated engine. Developed in a small factory in the town of Hamamatsu and with a workforce of 34 employees, the Honda A-Type was Honda’s first-ever totally original product and was created as an auxiliary engine for bicycles.

Since that time and as the first company to bring inverter generators to the market back in 1999, Honda has continued to develop new generator models, each with its own unique features and benefits. A powerhouse of the Honda fleet has been the  EU20i, a portable generator capable of providing 2000 watts of power and a popular choice for camping, fishing, and other outdoor activities. With the reputation of being one of the best selling portable generators ever manufactured up until production was discontinued in 2018, it remained high ranking on the lists of the best inverter generators. Its replacement, the newer improved version with 10% more power, the Honda EU22i, is equally well regarded.

Today, Honda continues to lead the industry in portable generator innovation, and its generators are highly sought after for their reliable performance and durable construction. Whether you’re needing power for a weekend camping trip or a full-blown power outage, Honda has the perfect portable generator for you.

Most people choose to invest in a Honda generator because they are high quality and very durable. This is also why we stock Honda generators at the Generator Place and believe they make a great addition to your home in the event of a power outage. A Honda generator is also the ideal solution for home workshop use or for making your travelling adventures much more comfortable.

There are a few important factors you should consider when purchasing a Honda generator. The first is the wattage. You need to make sure the generator you choose can handle the power needs of your desired application. The next thing to consider is the voltage. Make sure the generator you choose can handle the voltage of your devices and for advice on this, our knowledgeable staff are always on hand to assist.

Honda generators are available in a variety of sizes, so you can find the perfect one for your home or professional needs. If you need a generator with a higher wattage than the popular EU22i, then the Honda EU70is is a great option. It has a 7000-watt maximum output, and it is perfect for powering the whole home during a power outage and is also powerful enough for use in a workshop or on a construction site.
