Description

Zoom on the Champion 201322

To sum up, the Champion 201322 is a portable generator tailored for:

  • 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 sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures

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 201322 in use

The Champion 201322

Featuring dual-fuel technology, the Champion 201322 provides 120V, and offers both power and versatility. Running on gasoline, it delivers a running wattage of 4,250W and a starting wattage of 5,300W. When propane-powered, it offers 3,825 running watts and 4,780 starting watts.

Featuring a noise rating of 68 dBA (less noisy than an office), the generator utilizes a simple traditional pull-start mechanism for ignition.

The 201322, with a fuel capacity of 4.7 gallons, reaches a run time of around 14 hours at 50% load utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.34 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.

Due to the high THD (<20%) of the 201322, it is advised against using it for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features 4 AC outlets as follows:

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

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

Portability

Measuring L24.8 x W24.8 x H22.4 in, the Champion 201322 showcases a classic open frame layout, guaranteeing stability and simple maintenance access to components, while facilitating air circulation. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 114 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. Nevertheless, the restricted maneuverability is counteracted by its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle, enabling easy shifting once the generator is set in place.

Features

The 201322's control panel

Integrated into the control center of the 201322 are an Intelligauge meter, providing voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours data, facilitating the monitoring of its status and activity.

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the generator.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it. 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.

Apart from the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to facilitate setup, the Champion 201322 features extra accessories: oil, propane hose and funnel.

The Champion 201322 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Champion 201322 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • With a weight of 114 lbs, the Champion 201322 is notably on the heavier side among dual fuel generators in the 3500-4500 rated wattage range. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the WEN DF402iX, weighing just 66.1 pounds.
  • When comparing it to devices with a similar running wattage, this generator's lowest noise level of 68 dBA puts it alongside the noisier units. If you wish to prioritize minimal noise, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF stands out as one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, with a rating of 52 dBA.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of around 14 hours at 50% load, the 201322 benefits from a higher run time than many dual fuel generators of a similar output. For those prioritizing autonomy, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF could be considered, as it offers one of the longest run times among generators with similar power output, reaching around 15 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. When operating at 50% load, the generator's fuel consumption is estimated at 0.34 GPH, placing it within the average range of gasoline usage among similarly powerful devices. If you wish to get a unit of similar power, but with one of the best fuel efficiency, you could consider the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, which has an impressively low fuel consumption of 0.23 GPH.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3500-4500W dual fuel generators, the Champion 201322 is on the average side of the price range.

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