Zoom on the Champion 100110

In a nutshell, the Champion 100110 is a powerful portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Small homeowners in search of a full power backup solution
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed, including its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 100110 in use

The Champion 100110

The Champion 100110's design includes a gasoline-fueled 459 cc Champion OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120/240V output, it gives a running wattage of 9200W and also a peak wattage of 11500W.

The generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and also a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner).

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 7.7 gallons, the 100110 can operate for around 10 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.77 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

Because the 100110 is equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it can power your home during a power outage, as it can be easily connected to your breaker box to power your household.

Portability

The Champion 100110 has a conventional, open frame design, of the following dimensions: L27.7 x W27.6 x H26.6 in, which offers support and allows it to be raised above ground level. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 213 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. However, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Champion 100110

The 100110's control panel

The control panel of the 100110 includes an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and a Volt Guard™ overload protection, which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Champion 100110, the following accessories are also included: funnel and oil.

Emissions

The Champion 100110 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, making it usable in forested areas.

The Champion 100110 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 100110 compare to generators of similar power (between 8500 and 9500 W).

  • In terms of its dry weight, the Champion 100110 stands at only 213 lbs, meaning that is one of the lighter devices of the 8500-9500 rated wattage category If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above mentioned power range is the Rainier R12000DF, with a dry weight of just 196 pounds.
  • Since the generator's noise is rated at 74 dBA, it has the roughly average expected noise for a device of similar power. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the A-iPower SUA12000ED. With just 69 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • Offering around 10 hours of running time on a full tank at 50% load, the 100110 is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Pulsar PG12000B, as it provides around 12 hours.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator. This generator reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.77 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.55 GPH, the Rainier R12000DF is a device you should look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 8500-9500W generators, the Champion 100110 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.

    I have the Champion model 100110 and have owned it for about 2 years.
    I have had unit of different sizes ranging from 4500 to 5500 watts.
    In the past I would pay attention to what was on in the house using the smaller units.
    often plugging in one thing then taking that off line to to plug in something else. example would be start the freezer and when that shut off turn on the furnace, and so on until everything had cycled and we could turn of some amenities such as coffee makers, extra lights or the television.It would do the job but it was more work for me than for the generator.
    We have lost power on many times, for up to days at a time. When using the smaller units, i would be running around, just trying to keep everything going.
    With the Champion model 100110. i can run almost the entire home, in fact I am writing this review having just started my generator while I sit here drinking coffee with my wife. My whole house is up and running and I am using less than 2/3 of the units capacity.
    I would recommend this unit.
    P.S. as i sit here my wife just asked me what I was doing, I explained I was writing a review for the generator, and as she go up to start breakfast her comment was ” well worth the money”
