Zoom on the Champion 100476

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

  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • 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 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, the device is parallel capable (ParaLINK not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

With a noise rating of 58 dBA (less noisy than rainfall), the inverter generator features a conventional 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 features the upcoming 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 allowing you to easily charge your batteries.

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

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. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

The 80.9 lbs of the 100476's dry weight enables you to use it anywhere you will ever need. Moreover, once it’s on the ground, a wheel kit (⌀5.5") and a folding handle will allow you to displace it without effort.

Features

The 100476's control panel

When the generator is overloaded, the generator is ready and the oil level is too low, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

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

With the basic documentation and a user manual, letting you start the generator quickly, the Champion 100476 also comes with several accessories, including: funnel and dual port USB adapter.

Emissions

The Champion 100476 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. It can therefore be sold and purchased in all 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and therefore, can be used 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).

  • As far as its dry weight is concerned, the Champion 100476 weighs just 80.9 pounds and thus, it is one of the lighter 2500 to 3500 rated wattage generators. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the WEN GN400i with only 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.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the autonomy of the 100476, reaching up to 8 hours at a 25% load, can be considered as low end, compared to other products of a roughly equal output. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Honda EU3000iS, boasting with up to 20 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 inverter generator has an estimated fuel consumption of roughly 0.2 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, rendering it somewhat average compared to devices of a similar output. 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.
