Power Your Summer: A Review of the Ryobi RYI 2200 Watt Generator Inverter

It's getting warmer out and with warmer weather comes the threat of severe weather. Storms have the potential to cause serious issues including property damage, physical injuries and power outages. Prolonged power outages can cause so many issues. Last year we experienced a power outage that lasted over two days. We lived in the country and we were at the bottom of the priority list for getting power restored. It was the middle of Summer and it was so hot outside. We had a refrigerator full of food and a freshly stocked deep freezer as well and sadly, we lost everything. It was almost unbearable living conditions having no electric or running water and we were really lost! We recently bought a new home and it has a basement which is a blessing and a curse. While we now have somewhere to take shelter when a bad storm does strike, if we lose power, the sump pump quits working which ultimately leads to a flooded basement.  This year, we are prepared for whatever adventure the Summer brings because we just received the Ryobi 2200 Digital Inverter Generator!


No matter what your needs, the Ryobi 2200 Watt Inverter Generator is ready to perform. The quiet engine makes it the perfect choice whether you are at the ballpark, camping out or at home. It boasts of 2200 starting watts and 1800 running watts and is safe for just about any electronic device. As a huge plus, it is also parallel-kit capable so you can link two Ryobi Inverters together for twice the power for bigger jobs . Also featured is the idle-down technology for better fuel efficiency. The 3 year warranty is just the icing on the cake. 


Like all Ryobi products, I was really impressed with this generator. It's compact and much lighter than other generators I am familiar with. The pull-out handle makes it so convenient too. It's important to me that my wife be able to use the generator as well. I work every other weekend so she is often on the go with the kids by herself. I am fully confident that she can safely and easily operate the Ryobi generator if the need ever arises and that gives me some much needed peace of mind.

A lot of people have a hard time justifying the expense of a generator because they think generators are only for when we lose power.  That's what I always thought until our children got older and we started attending sporting events on a regular basis. If you like to tailgate, a generator is a lifesaver! Our boys play in out of town baseball and soccer tournaments on a regular basis and tailgating with the rest of the team is so fun. With the Ryobi portable generator, we can enjoy the ultimate tailgating experience! 

Our Little League team recently had a practice at a new field where we don't usually play.  After we all showed up for practice, we realized there was nowhere to plug our pitching machine in. That's when I remembered the Ryobi Generator! We live near the field so I just ran home and grabbed the generator and it literally saved our practice (and my arm!) 


Similar generators can be found for up to $1500 on todays market but the RYI 2200 is just $599. When you look at the endless possibilities on the amazing fun you can have this Summer with this product, it's priceless! Hurry over to your local Home Depot or go to HomeDepot.Com to pick yours up today!

  5. Every bit would help with the electric bills.
    We took in a homeless family of 5 and I bet the kids would love a pool, but we can't afford the extra $ on the electric bill that already is over $400 a month.

  24. we would use it at the lake and if the electricity goes out due to storms or power outages... a few summers ago our electric company would limit the amount of electricity you could use and sometimes they would shut it off for an hour during peek times so that others had electricity too. thanks crystal allen

    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.

  28. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
    violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.

  41. We live in an area that loses power and since there aren't too many of us on this road it seems like we are the last to get it restored.

  42. Tween parties in our backyard :)

  43. I would use it for my husband and my trailer. We are fixing up our home and living with his parents and it would be nice to get our trailer done so we can have a place to live of our own.., but we've been having to do everything by sun light and not being able to work nights has really been awful with the time. I really hope I win! *fingers crossed*

  44. With storms in pa its good for both winter and summer. The winter storms are the worst here and it would keep my furnace going to keep my baby and me warm in the winter if we lose electricity.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I live in the So Cal desert, and during the summer, it can get over 115-120 degrees outside, and just as hot inside. I work from home, so when the power goes out, I can't work. If that happens, then to get paid, I have to go "down the hill" to the field office. That means down the mountain pass, which, in the Summer, is hot (no air conditioner coming back up...you WILL overheat the car, trust me) and hopefully there isn't a brush fire or accident closing the pass (the drive is at least a 40 minute drive). I live on the main route between LA and Vegas, so the pass is horribly congested on Fridays, lol...the day there is always electricity issues. I wish I could to the local Starbucks or McDonald's, but I have a desktop computer. And, even if I had a laptop, I work in healthcare/insurance and deal with HIPPA laws (healthcare act privacy), so I can't do that either.
    To make a long story short, I would use this to power my computer so I could keep working and save money/gas/time. OR, if I wasn't working at the time, to power my evaporative cooler to keep us all cool

  46. we get a lot of strong storms and this would help keep our little house running

  47. I just need a backup. Even if no hurricane, out power goes out with any bad summer rain.
