Zoom on the Champion 75531i

In summary, the Champion 75531i is a quiet and compact portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 75531i in use

The Champion 75531i

The Champion 75531i is powered by a 171 cc Champion 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 2,800W as well as a peak wattage of 3,100W.

The inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism. It is rated for a noise of 58 dBA (less noisy than a conversation at home).

With a fuel capacity of 1.6 gallon, the 75531i may run for up to 8 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.2 GPH).

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the 75531i produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

It also sports 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy.

This Champion generator is RV Ready, as it features a TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer').

Portability

The Champion 75531i's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L22.4 x W17.3 x H18.3 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

As the 75531i's weight is only 83.8 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. Additionally, it can be easily moved with the help of its set of 2 wheels (⌀5.5") and its folding handle, once it is on the ground.

Features

The light indicators show you if the generator is ready, the generator is on overload and its oil levels are insufficient.

As for its security measures, the device features an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Champion 75531i also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit, battery charging cables and funnel.

Emissions

The Champion 75531i is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

The Champion 75531i versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 75531i compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • Having a dry weight of 83.8 lbs, the Champion 75531i belongs in the expected weight range for inverter generators which produce 2500 to 3500 rated watts. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO, weighing just 46 pounds.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 58 dBA, it can be considered as one of the more quiet of the products generating similar power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU3000iS, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 50 dBA.
  • As for its autonomy, the 75531i, with an autonomy of up to 8 hours at a 25% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Champion 200914, as it provides up to 22 hours.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank’s capacity and thus, doesn’t say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. This inverter generator is not fuel efficient compared to devices of similar output: its estimated fuel consumption stands at 0.2 GPH at a 25% load. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Energizer eZV3500P, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.13 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 2500-3500W inverter generators, the Champion 75531i is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
