Description

Versatile power with peace of mind is yours with the Champion 6250-watt portable generator, which meets ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 requirements and features CO Shield™ - the Carbon Monoxide auto shutoff system. Dual Fuel technology allows the 389cc engine to safely operate on either gasoline or propane. (source: Champion (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Champion 100592

In summary, the Champion 100592 is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

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 100592 in use

The Champion 100592

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the Champion 100592 delivers 120/240V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 6,250W and a peak wattage of 7,850W. When propane-powered, it has 5,600 rated watts and 7,050 peak watts.

The generator is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner). Its starting mechanism is based on a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

The running time of the 100592, with its 6 gallons fuel capacity, can reach around 10 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.6 GPH). With propane, it can reach around 6.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.72 GPH).

The quite high THD (<20%) of the 100592 makes it unsuitable for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

Because the 100592 is equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it can power your home during a power outage, as it can be easily connected to your breaker box to power your household.

Portability

The dimensions of the Champion 100592, which are L27 x W27.7 x H24.4 in, and its typical, open frame design provides stability and enables the generator to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

As the generator's weight is 162.5 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable). However, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

Features

The 100592's control panel

The control panel of the 100592 includes an Intelligauge meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

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. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Champion 100592's package also includes these accessories: propane hose and funnel. The official storage cover and running cover are also available, as separate purchases.

Emissions

The Champion 100592 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, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

The unit also meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

Product Video

The Champion 100592 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 100592 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • Weight-wise, the Champion 100592 has only 162.5 lbs, which renders it one of the lighter dual fuel generators which produce 5500 to 6500 rated watts. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Pulsar G65BN, with a dry weight of just 126 pounds.
  • Since the generator's noise is rated at 74 dBA, it has the roughly average expected noise for a device of similar type and power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Genmax GM7250iEDC, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 63 dBA.
  • Given that the 100592 reaches an autonomy of around 10 hours with a full tank and at 50% load, it is placed within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful dual fuel generators. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Firman H05751, which is able to run for around 12 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. Standing at an estimated 0.6 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, this generator is somewhat average in this area compared to other devices, within the aforementioned wattage range. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Genmax GM7250iEDC, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.45 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 5500-6500W dual fuel generators, the Champion 100592 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.

What is the THD rating for the 100592 Inverter generator? (Asked September 28, 2019)

The 100592 is not an inverter generator. It's THD will be around 12-20%, depending on load applied.

Can you run an electric dryer? (Asked February 20, 2021)

The approximate wattage required for starting an electric clothes dryer is 6750 watts and the approximate wattage for running it is 5400. If your dryer has similar wattages, and runs on 240V, the 100592 should be able to run it. Remember that these are approximate values. You should determine the actual running and starting watts of your appliance.

What type of gasoline can be used in this generator? should i be using non ethinol gas? (Asked June 05, 2022)

Gasoline should be clean, fresh, and unleaded with a minimum octane rating of 87 and an ethanol content of 10% or less by volume.

    Got this at home depot for a clearance price, it was worth the buy. I used this generator as a hurricane precaution for energy outages.

    Does what it says and at a decent price. Easy to assemble and use. I wish the fuel tank was larger at 7.7 gal, but it does allow propane gas as an alternative fuel source. It does run about 10 hours at 50-60 energy capacity. So far satisfied with it at a total of 40 hours of use.

    + PROS:
    • Dual fuel
    • Does run 10 hours at 50-60 capacity
    • Easy to use
    • Safety prevention measure (low oil shut off, GFCI receptacles)
    • Decent bang for your buck
    - CONS:
    • Fuel capacity tank is low at 7.7 gal
    • Need to treat fuel for better energy consumption/output
    • No electrical start-up
