Description

Our 7500-watt generator with 25-ft. extension cord and included oil features Intelligauge to monitor output and Volt Guard™ to prevent overloads. The 439cc 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 100219

In a nutshell, the Champion 100219 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food truck owners who do not wish to see their business interrupted 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 100219's engine, 439 cc Champion 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 7500W and reaches a peak wattage of 9375W.

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

The 100219 can operate for around 8 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.76 GPH), due to its fuel capacity of 6.1 gallons.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

As it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the 100219 is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household.

Portability

The design of the Champion 100219 is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L27.7 x W27.3 x H26 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Even though this device may be technically portable (as in movable), manipulation and transportation without special equipment can be a challenge, as it weighs 219.1 pounds. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

The 100219's control panel

The 100219 and its control panel include an Intelligauge meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours. This feature comes handy when monitoring its status and activity.

From a security standpoint, the product offers a Volt Guard™ overload protection and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Champion 100219 also is packed along with the following accessories: extension cord, oil and funnel.

Emissions

The Champion 100219 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, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

The Champion 100219 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 100219 compare to generators of similar power (between 7000 and 8000 W).

  • At a dry weight of 219.1 pounds, the Champion 100219 is one of the heavier devices which can produce between 7000 and 8000 running watts. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above mentioned power range is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF, with a dry weight of just 133 pounds.
  • This generator has a somewhat average expected noise for its power range, rated at 74 dBA. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the A-iPower SUA8000iSF. With just 65 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • The 100219’s autonomy is somewhat low end compared to devices of its power range, as it reaches only around 8 hours at 50% load on a full tank. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the A-iPower SUA8000iSF, reaching around 13 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 is rather wasteful, compared to other devices within the aforementioned output range, when it comes to gasoline consumption, as it reaches roughly 0.76 GPH at a 50% load. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the A-iPower SUA8000iSF, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.52 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 7000-8000W generators, the Champion 100219 is on the average side of the price range.

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

what is the difference in starting watts and running watts (Asked July 12, 2020)

Let's take a concrete example. Your dishwasher may consume 1500W when running. However, since it has a motor, it will need more power to get started. So your dishwasher may consume 3000W during the first 10 seconds or so, then 1500W. Running watts represent the power that is continuously available. Starting watts represent the power that is available only as a surge, for a short period of time. You can learn more about it in our dedicated blog article.
