Clarke IG2200 2.2kW Inverter Generator

Machine Mart may not be the first place you'd think of for camping and caravanning equipment, but the Specialist Tools and Equipment supplier stocks a great range of petrol suitcase generators, perfect for campers and caravanners. Last year we reviewed the fantastic IG1000 1kW generator, but as we know some people would like a little more power, this time we're taking a look at the 2.2kw model.

Clarke IG2200 Features:

  • 12V battery charging facility (12V DC @ 8.3Amps)
  • Low oil and overload shutdown
  • Recoil start
  • Running hours @ load: 7
  • Fuel Consumption @ load: 1ltr/h
  • Noise level at 7m (1/4 load): 60.5dB(A)
  • Includes two 13Amp, 230V sockets
  • Dims (LWH): 542x288x486mm
  • Weight: 26.6kg

The IG2200 from Clarke is a powerful, portable generator that features inverter technology to provide pure, stable power for computers and other sensitive equipment. With a maximum output of 2.2kW and a continuous output of 2.0kW it is suitable for trade and leisure use and is perfect for use on site, on market stalls, for camping & caravanning trips, boating and much more.

It has an economical air cooled 4 stroke engine and features an Eco throttle that automatically adjusts the engine speed to match the load that is running for greater fuel efficiency and a lower noise level. The Eco throttle also put less unnecessary strain on the motor which prolongs the lifespan of the motor and reduces operation costs.

Our Review: What did we Think?

The first thing we noticed when we got the generator out of the box was the very easy to follow instructions for setting up, running and maintaining the unit. We found it easy to fill the fuel and oil on first use and it did take two or three pulls to start from cold, but once the generator was warm it fired first time, every time.

Once the Clarke IG2200 2.2kW Inverter Generator was set up and running we plugged it in to the motorhome and found that it easily coped with what we threw at it, including running the lights, the battery charger, charging the mobile phone and laptop and most importantly keeping the beer cold in the fridge!

We found the Clarke IG2200 2.2kW Inverter Generator gave an excellent output and in the Economy mode we found the unit to be reasonably quiet too. It also offers two sockets which we found very useful.

Overall, this is a larger unit than the 1KW version, and is a bit on the heavy side, however for the cost it resembles great value for money and is not as heavy as some other generators providing the same power output.

This is a great buy offering good value for money and is around half the price of some other generators on the market.

Excellent value for money yes the unit is heavy but that is the price you play for the excellent out put and quietness of the unit excellent value for money

Just spent a week at a site with no facilities. Generator was great started first or second time every time. Vey quiet in economy mode. I have used generators before and have suffered from dirty AC output that has blown the switched mode charger output stages, Expensive repair if you cannot DIY! Great product, A bit on the heavy side but not as heavy as other four strokes giving the same output power

A great machine.Easy to follow instructions before starting,and the machine started first time,and has started first time every time since. A great addition for my caravan needs, no more flickering lights. It is a bit heavy though.
