Zoom on the Champion 100110

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

  • 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 able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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 is powered by a 459 cc Champion OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120/240V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 9,200W as well as a peak wattage of 11,500W.

The generator is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner). Its starting mechanisms include a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

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

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the 100110 is not recommended due to its high THD (<20%).

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, since the 100110 bears a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it is easily connectible to a breaker box and can power your home in case of 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 featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough 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. Still, once it is on the ground, its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle can easily solve the issue of low mobility and allow for easy relocation of the device.

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.

As for its security measures, the device features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), letting you use it with a peace of mind. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the Champion 100110 also comes with some accessories: oil and funnel are included.

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 and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

Product Video

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 for its weight, the Champion 100110 weighs only 213 pounds, making it one of the lighter generators in the 8500-9500 rated wattage category. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Westinghouse WGen9500TFc, weighing just 203.4 pounds.
  • Since the generator's noise is rated at 74 dBA, it has the roughly average expected noise for a device of similar power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the A-iPower SUA12000ED, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 69 dBA.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of around 10 hours at 50% load, the 100110 benefits from a higher run time than many generators of a similar output. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Pulsar G12KBN, as it provides around 12 hours.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. This generator can be considered as fuel efficient, due to its low estimated fuel consumption of only 0.77 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, within the aforementioned wattage range. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.67 GPH, the Pulsar G12KBN is a device you could 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 average side of the price range.

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

    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”
