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 a nutshell, the Champion 100592 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

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 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 6250W and a peak wattage of 7850W. When propane-powered, it has 5600 rated watts and 7050 peak watts.

The generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism. It is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner).

As for its running time, the 100592, along with its 6 gallons fuel capacity, can run for around 10 hours at 50% load with a full tank filled with gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.6 GPH). If propane is used, it can operate for around 6.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.72 GPH).

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the 100592 is not recommended due to its relatively high THD (<20%).

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

Since the 100592 bears a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it is easily connectible to a breaker box and can power your home in case of a power outage.

Portability

The design of the Champion 100592 is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L27 x W27.7 x H24.4 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 162.5 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. Nevertheless, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Champion 100592

The 100592's control panel

The 100592's control center features an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours to aid you with the monitoring of its status and activity.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it. 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).

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Champion 100592 also comes with several accessories, including: propane hose and funnel. The official storage cover and storm cover are also available, as separate purchases.

Emissions

The Champion 100592 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.

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 generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • As for its weight, the Champion 100592 weighs only 162.5 pounds, making it one of the lighter generators in the 5500-6500 rated wattage category. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Pulsar G65BN with only 126 pounds.
  • As this generator can emit noise as low as 74 dBA, it finds itself in the average expected noise for this kind of power. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Honda EU7000iS. With just 52 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the autonomy of the 100592, reaching around 10 hours at a 50% 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 Cat RP5500, boasting with around 15 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 generator reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.6 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI, with a fuel consumption of 0.38 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 5500-6500W 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.
