As the WEN GN875i and the Champion 100520 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Champion 100520 compare to the WEN GN875i.

  • Power: As both the Champion 100520 and the WEN GN875i share the same running wattage of 7000W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (8750 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: We unfortunately lack the data to compare the runtimes of these 2 generators. One of the manufacturers only provides data @25% load, whereas the other only gives data @50% load. It makes little sense to compare runtimes at different loads.
  • Fuel Efficiency: For the same reasons as pointed out above, we do not see any sense in comparing fuel consumption at different loads. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Champion 100520 and <1.5% for the WEN GN875i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: With a weight of 136.7 lbs, the GN875i is slightly less heavy than the 100520 (which weighs 149 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their maneuverability. Both offer a folding handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter.
  • Outlets: With a total of 6 AC outlets, the WEN GN875i offers more AC receptacles than the Champion 100520, which has 5 AC outlets. However, the Champion 100520 has the advantage of featuring GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the WEN GN875i does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. In addition, it is worth noting that they can both produce either 120 or 240V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Champion 100520's and the WEN GN875i's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
