POW! Tailgating

Honda 2000 Generator Review


We get asked all the time about the best tailgating equipment to use, starting with electronics. But to get those running, you have to have reliable power. But how much is too much? Tailgating is just as much about having all the things you want, but being efficient. This is where the Honda 2000 generator really shines as a portable generator.

We’ve used Yamaha generators which were ok, but the Honda 2000 generator is by far, the best we’ve ever used. And it continues to remain a staple at all of our tailgates. Here are the main reasons it’s our go-to generator.

Awesome Because:
  • Ideal for TV, satellite, cell phone charging, blenders, etc
  • Super quiet–49 and 60 decibels – which is no louder than normal speech
  • Easy to carry – less than 46 lbs, with a comfortable handle
  • Fuel efficient – 6-8 hrs of use per gallon of gas
Other Specs:
  • 2000 watts, 120V
  • Inverter – stable power for small appliances
  • 120V 2000W max. (16.7A) 1600W rated (13.3A)
  • DC Output 12V, 96W (8A)
  • Size 21 x 12 x 20″Honda 2000 Generator Plugs

Another reason this generator is a beast is that it is so reliable. In 6 years, we’ve owned so many of these, and none of them have failed. We simply change the oil each season and they start up with no problem. And honestly, sometimes, we don’t even change the oil every season and they always start up! This is probably why they retain their value.

If you look for them on Craigslist, they are hard to find, and even then, they are only a few hundred bucks off their $1k price–even after years of use. And the people selling them don’t even need to negotiate down, because people are beating down the door to get their hands on them.

They are hands-down the best tailgate generator out there. Pricey, but worth it. Plus, they are great for camping, a backup for power outages at home, etc.
