Power & Run Time

The Champion 200993 in use

The Champion 200993

Featuring a 212 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, the Champion 200993 operates using gasoline, providing 120V, with a running wattage of 3,650W and a starting wattage of 4,650W. Furthermore, its parallel capability (ParaLink (opens in a new tab) not included) allows for increasing of power output when connected to another similar or compatible unit, ensuring expanded energy capacity and reliability for various applications.

Enjoying a noise rating of 61 dBA (just slightly more noisy than an office), this inverter generator can be started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also to a hassle-free and practical electric starter (battery included). Champion’s EZ Start Dial lets you intuitively start the engine with easy access to all the controls you need. Additionally, the 200993 features remote starting, offering users increased convenience (key fob included).

The 200993's fuel tank, boasting 2.3 gallons, allows it to operate for up to 14 hours with a full tank (with an estimated fuel consumption of 0.16 GPH).

As the 200993 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 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

Moreover, it presents 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle making battery charging a breeze. 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.

Equipped with a TT-30R receptacle (TT representing 'Travel Trailer'), this Champion generator is RV Ready, ensuring compatibility with recreational vehicles.

Portability

Since the Champion 200993 is an inverter generator, its closed design (L23.2 x W17.7 x H20.1 in) not only provides an aesthetic advantage but also contributes to reduced noise levels compared to conventional, open frame devices. The design follows the contemporary trends and is perfect for recreationally generating power.

While weighing 101 lbs, the generator is classified as 'portable,' indicating its mobility, albeit its heftiness may limit portability in specific situations. Nevertheless, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of its set of 2 wheels (⌀5") and its folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

The 200993's control panel

The 200993's control panel is equipped with a digital Intelligauge data center, furnishing detailed information on the lifetime run hours, power output and voltage for you to easily track its activity and status.

In addition to this info, when the generator is ready, the generator is overloaded and the oil level is too low, you will be informed by the featured light indicators.

The built-in fuel gauge of the inverter generator ensures simple and quick gas level assessments.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), giving you a peace of mind during use.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Champion 200993 also comes with several accessories, including: funnel, dual port USB adapter, tool kit, oil and key fob.

The Champion 200993 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 200993 compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • Since the generator weighs in at a dry weight of 101 lbs, the Champion 200993 belongs in the expected weight range for inverters which can produce between 3500 and 4500 rated watts. Weight-conscious users may find the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC appealing, as it is one of the top contenders in this power range, weighing just 58.4 pounds.
  • The inverter generator's noise output, rated at 61 dBA, falls within the average range expected for devices in its type and power range. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 52 dBA.
  • As for its autonomy, the 200993, with an autonomy of up to 14 hours at a 25% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. If wyou wish to prioritize autonomy, the Firman W03661OF shines as one of the top contenders, offering one of the highest run times among generators with similar power output, totaling up to 25 hours.
  • While run time is vital, it hinges on the fuel capacity. To grasp the full picture, we must also factor in fuel efficiency. This inverter generator provides one of the best fuel efficiency among its peers of comparable power output, consuming approximately 0.16 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3500-4500W inverter generators, the Champion 200993 is on the average side of the price range.

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