Zoom on the Champion 100110

In summary, the Champion 100110 is a powerful portable generator especially useful for:

  • Homeowners who wish to power almost all appliances in their house under any circumstances
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

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 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.

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 dishwasher).

With a fuel capacity of 7.7 gallons, the 100110 may run for around 10 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.77 GPH).

Since the 100110 has a somewhat high THD (<20%), it is advisable to not use it for the powering of sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

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

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

The Champion 100110 has the following dimensions: L27.7 x W27.6 x H26.6 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

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. Nevertheless, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Champion 100110

The 100110's control panel

The 100110's status and activity may be monitored conveniently via the control panel, as it features an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with a Volt Guard™ overload protection and an automatic low oil shut-off, giving you a peace of mind during use.

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 and thus, may be used 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).

  • As far as its dry weight is concerned, the Champion 100110 weighs just 213 pounds and thus, it is one of the lighter 8500 to 9500 rated wattage generators. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Rainier R12000DF with only 196 pounds.
  • This generator has a somewhat average expected noise for its power range, rated at 74 dBA. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the A-iPower SUA12000ED with only 69 dBA.
  • The 100110, falls within the average autonomy range compared to generators of a roughly same power, with a run time of around 10 hours at a 50% load and a full tank. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Pulsar PG12000B, which is able to run for 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. This generator has an estimated fuel consumption of roughly 0.77 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, rendering it somewhat average compared to devices of a similar output. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Rainier R12000DF. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.55 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

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”
