Description

Zoom on the Champion 100719

In summary, the Champion 100719 is a powerful portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

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 100719 in use

The Champion 100719

The Champion 100719's design includes a gasoline-fueled 420 cc OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120/240V output, it gives a running wattage of 7,000W and also a peak wattage of 8,500W.

The inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism and also a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a noise of 61 dBA (just slightly more noisy than an office). Champion’s EZ Start Dial lets you intuitively start the engine with easy access to all the controls you need.

The 100719 can operate for up to 14 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.38 GPH), due to its fuel capacity of 5.3 gallons.

As the 100719 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 features the following 5 AC outlets:

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

In addition, it provides 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle with which you may charge your batteries with ease. 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.

Due to the featured twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the 100719 is transfer switch ready: you may connect it to a breaker box to power your household during a power outage.

Portability

Since the Champion 100719 is an inverter generator, its closed design (L33.4 x W29.1 x H26 in) has an esthetical advantage over conventional, open frame devices. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

Even though this device may be technically portable (as in movable), manipulation and transportation without special equipment can be a challenge, as it weighs 211.6 pounds. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its set of wheels (⌀9.5") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

Panel of the Champion 100719

The 100719's control panel

A digital Intelligauge data center, one of the features of the 100719's control panel, gives you information on the voltage, frequency and lifetime run hours, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

In addition to this info, when its oil levels are insufficient, you will be informed by the featured light indicator.

The fuel level of the inverter generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

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

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the Champion 100719 also comes with some accessories: RV adapter, oil, battery charging cables, dual port USB adapter and funnel are included.

Emissions

The Champion 100719 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 thus, may be used in forested areas.

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

Product Videos

The Champion 100719 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 100719 compare to generators of similar power (between 6500 and 7500 W).

  • A weight of 211.6 lbs makes the Champion 100719 one of the heavier devices in the 6500-7500 rated wattage range. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF with only 133 pounds.
  • As its lowest possible noise is rated at 61 dBA, this inverter generator qualifies as one of the more quiet of the products of similar power. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Powerhorse 7500i. With just 55 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the autonomy of the 100719, reaching up to 14 hours at a 25% load, can be considered as low end, compared to other products of a roughly equal output. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Powerhorse 7500i, which is able to run for up to 16 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. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.38 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is a rather fuel efficient one within its wattage category. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.35 GPH, the Energizer eZV8000 is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 6500-7500W inverter generators, the Champion 100719 is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it would most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
