As the WEN 56200i and the Champion 73536i 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 73536i compare to the WEN 56200i.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 1700 W, the Champion 73536i will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 1600 running watts of the WEN 56200i. However, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (2000 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 73536i and <1.2% for the WEN 56200i) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: With a noise of 50 dBA, the WEN 56200i allows for a quieter operation than the 53 dBA of the Champion 73536i. The former will therefore be the most suitable for you if you take noise emission seriously.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: When compared, the WEN 56200i and its dimensions of L18" x W11" x H18" offer a slightly more compact experience than the L19.3" x W13.2" x H16.3" of the Champion 73536i.
  • Weight: With a weight of 48.5 lbs, the 73536i is slightly less heavy than the 56200i (which weighs 50 lbs).
  • Portability: Both offer a handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can get running via a conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: The Champion 73536i and the WEN 56200i both offer 2 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the WEN 56200i does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the Champion 73536i's and the WEN 56200i's product pages.
  • Fuel Gauge: Thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the WEN 56200i provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
