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 summary, the Champion 100219 is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners who do not wish to see their business interrupted under any circumstances
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 100219 houses a 439 cc Champion 4-stroke engine, which provides 120/240V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 7500W along with a peak wattage of 9375W.

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

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

Outlets

The control panel features 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 Champion 100219 has the following dimensions: L27.7 x W27.3 x H26 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding 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, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

The 100219's control panel

The control panel of the 100219 includes an Intelligauge meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

As for its security measures, the device features a Volt Guard™ overload protection and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you 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: oil, funnel and extension cord.

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, making it usable 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).

  • A weight of 219.1 lbs makes the Champion 100219 one of the heavier devices in the 7000-8000 rated wattage range. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF, with a dry weight of only 133 lbs.
  • 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 SUA8000iSF, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 65 dBA.
  • As for its autonomy, the 100219, with an autonomy of around 8 hours at a 50% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the A-iPower SUA8000iSF, as it provides around 13 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. In fact, this generator is not among the most fuel efficient, within the aforementioned wattage range : its estimated gasoline consumption at 50% load is around 0.76 GPH. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the A-iPower SUA8000iSF, with a fuel consumption of 0.52 GPH could be in your good books.

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.
