Description

Our rugged and reliable 9200-watt generator with included engine oil features Intelligauge to monitor output and Volt Guard™ to prevent overloads. The 459cc Champion engine with electric start and included battery has all the power you need for home backup during an outage or your next project. (source: Champion (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Champion 100110

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

  • Prudent homeowners who want a backup power source in case of a power outage
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 100110 in use

The Champion 100110

The Champion 100110's core is the 459 cc Champion OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120/240V, it provides a running wattage of 9200W and a peak wattage of 11500W.

With a noise rating of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher), the generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

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

The quite high THD (<20%) of the 100110 makes it unsuitable for powering sensitive electronic devices.

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

If you own an RV with a 50-amp service, you can consider this Champion unit as RV-ready, as it features a 14-50R outlet. In addition, as the 100110 holds a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: you'll easily be able to connect it to your breaker box to power your home during a power outage.

Portability

With its dimensions of L27.7 x W27.6 x H26.6 in, the conventional, open frame design of the Champion 100110 offers stability and allows the generator to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

While the generator is considered to be technically 'portable' (in the sense that you can move it), manually lifting and transporting it may be challenging, due to its high weight of 213 lbs. 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 100110 and its control panel include an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours. This feature comes handy when monitoring its status and activity.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Champion 100110 also is packed along with the following accessories: oil and funnel.

Emissions

The Champion 100110 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate for use 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 Pulsar PG12000B, with a dry weight of just 205 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.
  • As the 100110 offers around 10 hours run time on a full tank at a 50% load, it falls within the average autonomy range among the generators of a similar power. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Westinghouse WGen9500DF, reaching around 12 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. As this generator uses an estimated 0.77 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, it finds itself in the average gasoline consumption range of similar products. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Westinghouse WGen9500DF, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.55 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

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”
