Description

Zoom on the Champion 201119

The Champion 201119 is the newer version of the 200969. It's a compact 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 in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 201119 in use

The Champion 201119

Running on gasoline, the Champion 201119 utilizes a 224 cc OHV 4-stroke engine to deliver 120V, offering a running wattage of 3,650W and a starting wattage of 4,550W.

Operating with a noise level of 68 dBA (less noisy than background music), the generator starts up via a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism.

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 4.7 gallons, the 201119 can operate for around 14 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.34 GPH).

Given the 201119's high Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 20%, it is advisable to avoid using it to power sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 4 AC outlets:

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

With its TT-30R receptacle (TT as in 'Travel Trailer'), this Champion generator is RV Ready.

Portability

Measuring L23.2 x W18.3 x H20 in, the classic open frame construction of the Champion 201119 provides stability while enabling convenient maintenance access to components and adequate air cooling. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

As the generator's weight is 103 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable).

Features

The 201119's control panel

For convenient monitoring of its status and activity, the control panel of the 201119 includes an Intelligauge meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

Thanks to its built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently, and easily check the gas level at a glance.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, giving you a peace of mind during use. Champion's built-in surge protector (Volt Guard™) safeguards your equipment and appliances against voltage spikes.

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.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Champion 201119, the following accessories are also included: oil and funnel.

The Champion 201119 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201119 compare to generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 103 pounds, the Champion 201119 finds itself in the expected weight range for generators able to produce between 3500 and 4500 rated watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC, standing at just 58.4 lbs.
  • This generator, with its lowest possible noise rated at 68 dBA falls into the more noisy category, compared to other devices of a similar running wattage. If you'd like a less noisy alternative, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF is a strong contender. It boasts a noise rating of 52 dBA, placing it among the quietest generators in its power category.
  • Compared to devices of similar power, the 201119 stands out with one of the higher run times, lasting around 14 hours at 50% load. If wyou wish to prioritize autonomy, the Predator 4375 shines as one of the top contenders, offering one of the highest run times among generators with similar power output, totaling around 16 hours.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. This generator is one of the more fuel-efficient options in its power range, consuming approximately 0.34 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.23 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3500-4500W generators, the Champion 201119 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
