Description

Zoom on the Champion 201122

The Champion 201122 is the newer version of the 100899. It's a quiet, compact and lightweight portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Amateur DIY lovers

Over the following sections, you'll uncover its power characteristics, the selection of outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it includes.

Power & Run Time

The Champion 201122 in use

The Champion 201122

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the Champion 201122 delivers 120V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 1,850W and a peak wattage of 2,500W. When propane-powered, it has 1,665 rated watts and 2,500 peak watts. Moreover, the parallel capability (ParaLink (opens in a new tab) not included) enables doubling of power output when paired with another similar or compatible unit, providing increased energy capacity and versatility for a wide range of needs.

Operating at a noise rating of 53 dBA (just slightly more noisy than rainfall), this inverter generator starts up with a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism. Champion’s EZ Start Dial lets you intuitively start the engine with easy access to all the controls you need.

As for its running time, the 201122, along with its 1.1 gallon fuel capacity, can run for up to 11.5 hours with a full tank filled with gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.1 GPH). If propane is used, it can operate for up to 34 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.14 GPH).

The 201122 generates a clean sine wave with <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), ensuring minimal electrical noise and fluctuations. This feature makes it ideal for powering sensitive electronics, providing stable and reliable AC power through the outlets.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Additionally, it features 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) ideal for charging various electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Portability

With an inverter generator design, the Champion 201122 features a closed construction (L17.3 x W11.5 x H17.7 in), enhancing aesthetics and ensuring reduced noise levels, offering a distinct advantage over standard, open frame generators. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

With its weight totaling only 39 lbs, the 201122 stands out as a lightweight generator. It's easy for one person to move around, ensuring power availability on the move. With its handle (molded in the case), carrying it becomes a breeze, adding to its convenience.

Features

Panel of the Champion 201122

The 201122's control panel

The device's light indicator will illuminate to indicate if its oil levels are insufficient.

From a security standpoint, the product offers an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

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.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Champion 201122's package also includes these accessories: oil, propane hose and funnel. The official storage cover and running cover are also available, as separate purchases.

The Champion 201122 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201122 compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • Regarding weight, the Champion 201122 comes in at only 39 pounds, positioning itself as one of the lighter options among inverter generators spanning from 1500 to 2500 in rated wattage. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Genmax GM2000i, standing at just 34.2 lbs.
  • The inverter generator's noise output, rated at 53 dBA, falls within the average range expected for devices in its type and power range. If you wish to prioritize minimal noise, the Honda EU2200i stands out as one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, with a rating of 48 dBA.
  • Among its inverters with similar power, the 201122 offers one of the higher run times, running for up to 11.5 hours at 25% load. 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.
  • Run time is a key metric, but it's dependent on the generator's fuel capacity. Therefore, discussing fuel efficiency is necessary to get the full picture. This inverter generator is one of the more fuel-efficient options in its power range, consuming approximately 0.1 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load. If gasoline efficiency is at the top of your list, you may want to have a look at the DuroMax XP2300iH, which has great fuel efficiency, with a gas consumption of only 0.08 gallons per hour.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 1500-2500W dual fuel inverter generators, the Champion 201122 is on the average side of the price range.

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