Description

Zoom on the Champion 100719

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

  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • 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 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 100719 in use

The Champion 100719

The Champion 100719's core is the 420 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120/240V, it provides a running wattage of 7500W and a peak wattage of 8000W.

With a noise rating of 61 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a normal conversation), the inverter generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, but also a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). Champion’s EZ Start Dial lets you intuitively start the engine with easy access to all the controls you need.

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

As the 100719 produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Disruption (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

Additionally, it features 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.

As it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the 100719 is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household.

Portability

The Champion 100719 is an inverter generator and has an encased design of the following dimensions: L33.4 x W29.1 x H26 in. Thus, it is more aesthetical than conventional, open frame products. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

While the generator is considered to be technically 'portable' (in the sense that you can move it), manually lifting and transporting it may be challenging, due to its high weight of 211.6 lbs. 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

The control panel of the 100719 includes a digital Intelligauge data center, which assists you in monitoring its status and activity, as it provides information on the frequency, lifetime run hours and voltage.

In addition to this info, the device’s light indicator will display if its oil levels are insufficient.

The inverter generator allows for a quick, easy and convenient assessment of its gas level, as it is equipped with a built-in fuel gauge.

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

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).

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Champion 100719, the following accessories are also included: RV adapter, battery charging cables, funnel, oil and dual port USB adapter.

Emissions

The Champion 100719 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, making it usable in forested areas.

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

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 7000 and 8000 W).

  • At a weight of 211.6 pounds, the Champion 100719 places in the expected weight range of the generators in the 7000-8000 rated wattage range. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF, with a dry weight of only 133 lbs.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 61 dBA, it can be considered as one of the most quiet of the products generating similar power.
  • 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 DuroMax XP9000iH, which is able to run for up to 20 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, with an estimated fuel consumption of just 0.38 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, is one of the more fuel efficient generators, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the DuroMax XP9000iH, with a fuel consumption of 0.35 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 7000-8000W 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.
