Description

Zoom on the Champion 100571

In summary, the Champion 100571 is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools

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 100571 in use

The Champion 100571

The Champion 100571's core is the 122 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120V, it provides a running wattage of 2,300W and a peak wattage of 3,500W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (ParaLink (opens in a new tab) not included), this power can be doubled when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

At a noise rating of 58 dBA (less noisy than a conversation at home), the inverter generator is started via a simple traditional pull-start mechanism. Champion’s EZ Start Dial lets you intuitively start the engine with easy access to all the controls you need.

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 1.2 gallon, the 100571 can operate for up to 10 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.12 GPH).

As the 100571 produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Furthermore, it has 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy. Since a dual port USB adapter is included with the unit, you will also be able to use the DC receptacle to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

Portability

As the Champion 100571 is an inverter generator, its encased design (L23.8 x W16.4 x H19.4 in) offers more aesthetics than a conventional, open frame product. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

The 57.8 lbs of the 100571's dry weight enables you to use it anywhere you will ever need. Furthermore, once placed on the floor, effortless displacement is possible thanks to its set of wheels (⌀5.5") and its telecospic handle.

Features

The 100571's control panel

One of the many 100571's features is the Intelligauge data center, included in its control panel, which conveniently provides information on the lifetime run hours, power output, voltage and frequency and thus, helps you monitor its activity and status.

In addition to this info, a light indicator serves to show you when 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 and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

The unit also benefits from the CO Shield™ technology, which monitors accumulation of poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) gas produced by the engine's exhaust when the generator is running. If CO Shield™ detects elevated levels of CO gas, it automatically shuts off the engine and illuminates a red LED.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Champion 100571 also is packed along with the following accessories: oil, tool kit, funnel and dual port USB adapter.

Emissions

The Champion 100571 is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

However, it features a spark arrestor, making it usable in forested areas.

In addition, the unit meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

The Champion 100571 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 100571 compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • With its weight of 57.8 lbs, the Champion 100571 is one of the heavier inverter generators in the 1500-2500 rated wattage category. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Genmax GM2000i, with a dry weight of only 34.2 lbs.
  • Among the generators of a comparable running wattage, this inverter generator with a lowest noise of 58 dBA can be judged as noisy. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Honda EU2200i with only 48 dBA.
  • Given that the 100571 reaches an autonomy of up to 10 hours with a full tank and at 25% load, it is placed within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful inverter generators. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the DuroMax XP2300iH, reaching up to 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. This inverter generator has an estimated fuel consumption of roughly 0.12 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, rendering it somewhat average compared to devices of a similar output. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.08 GPH, the DuroMax XP2300iH is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W inverter generators, the Champion 100571 is on the average side of the price range.

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

    Purchased for RV. Will not run a GE ARC13AACB (13,500BTU) Generator. Nice, quiet, starts on first pull trips fuse when air conditioner kicks in. Great read out. Lite weight. Exactly what I wanted but lacked the ability to take start up draw.

    + PROS:
    • Nice, quiet, starts on first pull, lite weight, great read out.
    - CONS:
    • Will not run a GE 13,500 BTU RV Air Conditioner.
