Description

Zoom on the Champion 201047

In summary, the Champion 201047 is a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go

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 201047 in use

The Champion 201047

The dual-fuel technology of the Champion 201047 allows for an output of 120V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 1,800W and a starting wattage of 2,400W. If propane-powered, it gives 1,620 rated watts and 2,400 starting watts. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (ParaLink (opens in a new tab) not included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

At a noise rating of 53 dBA (just slightly more noisy than rainfall), the inverter generator is started via a simple traditional pull-start mechanism. Champion’s EZ Start Dial lets you intuitively start the engine with easy access to all the controls you need.

The running time of the 201047, with its 1.1 gallon fuel capacity, can reach up to 11 hours on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.1 GPH). With propane, it can reach up to 34 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.14 GPH).

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the 201047 produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel features the following 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

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

Portability

The Champion 201047 is an inverter generator and has an encased design of the following dimensions: L19.6 x W11.8 x H18.1 in. Thus, it is more aesthetical than conventional, open frame products. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

The 201047 can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 50.5 lbs. Furthermore, moving the 201047 from A to B is made easier thanks to its convenient handle (molded in the case), which vastly improves your grip.

Features

The 201047's control panel

The device’s light indicators will display if the oil level is too low and the generator is on overload.

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.

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Champion 201047, the following accessories are also included: oil, propane hose, dual port USB adapter, funnel and tool kit.

Emissions

The Champion 201047 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 and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

The Champion 201047 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201047 compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • At a weight of 50.5 pounds, the Champion 201047 places in the expected weight range of the inverter generators in the 1500-2500 rated wattage range. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Genmax GM2000i, standing at just 34.2 lbs.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 53 dBA, this inverter generator is one of the quieter devices of similar type and power. If you’d prefer a less noisy device, one of the most quiet devices, which share the same power range with this one, is the Honda EU2200i, whose lowest noise levels reach just 48 dBA.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of up to 11 hours at 25% load, the 201047 benefits from a higher run time than many inverter generators of a similar output. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the DuroMax XP2300iH, reaching up to 13 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. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the more fuel efficient of the products in the above-mentioned wattage range. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the DuroMax XP2300iH, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.08 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 1500-2500W dual fuel inverter generators, the Champion 201047 is on the average side of the price range.

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