Description

Zoom on the Champion 201052

In a nutshell, the Champion 201052 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout

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 201052 in use

The Champion 201052

The dual-fuel technology of the Champion 201052 allows for an output of 120V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 3800W and a starting wattage of 4750W. If propane-powered, it gives 3420 rated watts and 4275 starting watts.

The generator is rated for a noise of 68 dBA (less noisy than a normal conversation). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

The 201052, with a fuel capacity of 4.5 gallons, reaches a run time of around 14 hours at 50% load utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.32 GPH). Alternatively, it can reach a run time of around 10.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.45 GPH) with propane.

Since the 201052 has a somewhat high THD (<20%), it is advisable to not use it for the powering of sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 4 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

This Champion generator is RV Ready, thanks to its TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer').

Portability

With its dimensions of L24.7 x W25 x H22.2 in, the conventional, open frame design of the Champion 201052 offers stability and allows the generator to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

As the generator's weight is 123 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable). Nevertheless, thanks to its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

The 201052's control panel

The 201052's status and activity may be monitored conveniently via the control panel, as it features an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

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

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the Champion 201052 also comes with some accessories: funnel, propane hose and oil are included.

Emissions

The Champion 201052 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, making it usable in forested areas.

The Champion 201052 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201052 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • Considering its dry weight of 123 pounds, the Champion 201052 is one of the heavier dual fuel generators producing between 3500 and 4500 running watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the WEN DF402iX, standing at just 66.1 lbs.
  • Because this generator emits noise as low as 68 dBA, it can be considered to have a pretty average expected noise rating for a device of its power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 52 dBA.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of around 14 hours at 50% load, the 201052 benefits from a higher run time than many dual fuel generators of a similar output. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, boasting with around 15 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 generator, with an estimated fuel consumption of just 0.32 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, is one of the more fuel efficient generators, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.23 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 3500-4500W dual fuel generators, the Champion 201052 is on the average side of the price range.

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

    It was easy to finish putting it together . I put it together from a handi cap scooter seat . I followed the instructions . When I was finnished rolled outside the garage on driveway and turned on choke it started right up just like it was suppose to. Very happy with the purchase would differently recommend the Champion generator

    + PROS:
    • I did not have any problem pulling the generator out of shipping box and installing wheels and removing shipping straps put in oil and gas and plugged in battery .It started right up . I did all this from a handicap scooter . I haven't been able to walk in 6 years . It was not that difficult it probably took me longer than most people but it was possible to do even in my condition . Very happy with the purchase. Richard Jones
    - CONS:
    • The Generator was a little heavy but I had read the specifications and was prepared . Other than that I am very happy with the purchase would recommend.
