Zoom on the Champion 100476

In summary, the Champion 100476 is a quiet and compact portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Amateur DIY lovers
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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 parameters.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 100476 in use

The Champion 100476

The Champion 100476 is powered by a 171 cc Champion 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 2850W as well as a peak wattage of 3150W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (ParaLINK not included), this power can be doubled when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 58 dBA (less noisy than a refrigerator). Its starting mechanism is based on a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

The fuel capacity of 1.6 gallon allows the 100476 to operate for up to 8 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.2 GPH).

The 100476 generates a clean sine wave: providing <3% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its AC outlets safely.

The generator will allow you to simultaneously power various devices, for example:Note: The above mentioned examples presume a maximum load of 75% and use wattage estimates. In addition, the items might not be able to start simultaneously. With our wattage calculator, you can predict if the product can fulfill your requirements.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

In addition, it provides 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy.

Thanks to its TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer'), this Champion generator is RV Ready.

Portability

Thanks to its closed inverter generator design (L22.4 x W17.3 x H18.3 in), the Champion 100476, is more esthetical than a typical, open frame generator. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

As the 100476's weight is only 80.9 lbs, it can follow you and your power needs anywhere. Moreover, a wheel kit (⌀5.5") and a folding handle allows you to effortlessly displace it once it's on the ground.

Features

Several light indicators serve to show you when the generator is overloaded, the generator is ready and the oil level is too low.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off.

Besides the classic documentation and a user manual to get you promptly started, the Champion 100476 also comes with some accessories: dual port USB adapter and funnel are included.

Emissions

The Champion 100476 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 100476 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 100476 compare to generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • Regarding its weight, the Champion 100476 only weighs in at 80.9 pounds, which means it's one of the lighter generators in the 2500-3500 rated wattage range. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Honda EG2800i, weighing just 66.6 pounds.
  • With a lowest possible noise of 58 dBA, this inverter generator places itself amongst the more quiet of the products delivering similar power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU3000iS, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 50 dBA.
  • The autonomy is somewhat low end compared to devices of its power range, as it reaches only 8 hours at 25% load on a full tank. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Honda EU3000iS, which is able to run for 20 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 inverter generator is rather wasteful, compared to other devices within the aforementioned output range, when it comes to gasoline consumption, as it reaches roughly 0.2 GPH at a 25% load. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the Energizer eZV3200P, with a fuel consumption of 0.13 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other 2500-3500W generators, the Champion 100476 is on the average side of the price range.

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