Description

Zoom on the Champion 201175

In summary, the Champion 201175 is a powerful portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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 201175 in use

The Champion 201175

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile Champion 201175 provides an output of 120/240V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 7,000W along with a peak wattage of 8,500W. While propane-powered, it provides 6,300 rated watts and 8,500 starting watts.

The inverter generator is rated for a noise of 61 dBA (just slightly more noisy than background music). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a user-friendly and hassle-free electric starter (battery included). Champion’s EZ Start Dial lets you intuitively start the engine with easy access to all the controls you need.

In terms of run time, the 201175, boasting a 5.3 gallons fuel tank, can run for up to 14 hours on a full tank of gasoline (with fuel consumption averaging 0.38 gallons per hour). Additionally, it provides up to 12 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.39 GPH) of operation with propane.

The 201175 produces a clean sine wave: thanks to a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), your sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

Moreover, it comes equipped with 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle with which you may charge your batteries with ease. Thanks to the included dual port USB adapter, you can conveniently use the DC receptacle to charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

With its 14-50R outlet, this Champion unit is RV-ready for owners with a 50-amp service in their RVs. In addition, because the 201175 is equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it can power your home during a power outage, as it can be easily connected to your breaker box to power your household.

Portability

Thanks to its closed inverter generator design (L33.4 x W29.1 x H26 in), the Champion 201175 not only offers superior aesthetics but also operates with reduced noise levels compared to a typical, open frame generator. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

Though weighing 213.8 lbs, the generator remains classified as 'portable,' indicating its capability to be moved, though its weight could pose transport challenges. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its set of 2 wheels (⌀9.5") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

The 201175's control panel

With a digital Intelligauge data center integrated into its control panel, the 201175 provides real-time insights into the voltage, frequency, lifetime run hours and power output, enabling easy monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator serves to show you when the oil level is too low.

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

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.

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.

In addition to the traditional documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to help you get started promptly, the Champion 201175 also includes several accessories: dual port USB adapter, propane hose, funnel and oil.

The Champion 201175 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201175 compare to generators of similar power (between 6500 and 7500 W).

  • With its weight of 213.8 lbs, the Champion 201175 is one of the heavier generators in the 6500-7500 rated wattage category. Weight-conscious users may find the Sportsman GEN85KIDF appealing, as it is one of the top contenders in this power range, weighing just 133 pounds.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 61 dBA, it can be considered as one of the more quiet of the products generating similar power. If you value reduced noise levels, the Powerhorse 7500i could be worth considering. It's one of the quietest generators in its power range, rated at 55 dBA.
  • In terms of autonomy, the 201175 offers up to 14 hours at a 25% load, placing it at the lower range within its power range. If wyou wish to prioritize autonomy, the DuroMax XP8500EH 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.
  • 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. Standing at an estimated 0.38 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, this inverter generator is somewhat average in this area compared to other devices, within the aforementioned wattage range. To prioritize fuel savings, we advise considering the DuroMax XP7500DX, which stands out for its gasoline efficiency, consuming just 0.29 gallons per hour.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 6500-7500W inverter generators, the Champion 201175 is on the average side of the price range.

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