Zoom on the Champion 100476

In a nutshell, the Champion 100476 is a quiet and compact portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 100476 in use

The Champion 100476

The Champion 100476's design includes a gasoline-fueled 171 cc Champion 4-stroke engine. With a 120V output, it gives a running wattage of 2850W and also a peak wattage of 3150W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (ParaLINK (opens in a new tab) not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

At a noise rating of 58 dBA (less noisy than a quiet suburb), the inverter generator is started via a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

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

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the 100476 produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 3 AC outlets:

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

Furthermore, it has 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

The Champion 100476's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L22.4 x W17.3 x H18.3 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

The 80.9 lbs of the 100476's dry weight enables you to use it anywhere you will ever need. Moreover, its wheel kit (⌀5.5") and its folding handle will allow you to effortlessly shift it once it's on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Champion 100476

The 100476's control panel

The light indicators show you if the generator is overloaded, the oil level is too low and the generator is ready.

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

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) 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. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate for use 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).

  • Weight-wise, the Champion 100476 has only 80.9 lbs, which renders it one of the lighter generators which produce 2500 to 3500 rated watts. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above mentioned power range is the WEN GN400i, with a dry weight of just 66.1 pounds.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 58 dBA, this inverter generator is one of the quieter devices of similar power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Honda EU3000iS, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 50 dBA.
  • As for its autonomy, the 100476, with an autonomy of up to 8 hours at a 25% 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 Honda EU3000iS, as it provides up to 20 hours.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator. This inverter generator reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.2 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Energizer eZV3200P, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.13 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 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.
