The gasoline-powered Champion 4-stroke 224 cc engine is the heart of the Champion 100302. It has a 120V output and a running power of 3,500W and a peak power of 4,000W. Also, the generator can be connected to a second unit to make more power (ParaLINK is not included). The noise level of the inverter generator is 64 dBA, which is just a little louder than background music. It has a traditional pull-start mechanism. Due to its 2.9-gallon fuel tank, the 100302 can run for up to 17 hours on a full tank (using about 0.17 GPH of fuel). The 100302 makes a clean sine wave. With a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 3%, you can safely plug your sensitive electronics into the AC outlets.
On the control panel, there are 3 AC outlets: a duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) outlet and a 120V 30A (TT-30R) outlet.Also, it has 1 DC outlet: a 12V 8A receptacle that lets you charge your batteries easily.Since the unit comes with a dual port USB adapter, you can also use the DC receptacle to easily charge devices like cell phones and tablets.This Champion generator is ready for an RV because it has a TT-30R plug (TT stands for “Travel Trailer”).
You may quickly determine whether the generator is overloaded, ready, or the oil level is too low thanks to its light indications.This device has an automatic low oil shut-off that increases security and gives you complete peace of mind when using it.The Champion 100302 comes with the two port USB converter, funnel, and standard paperwork in addition to an owner’s manual , which enables you to use it right away.
With dimensions of L20.5 x W17.9 x H17.7 in, the Champion 100302 is a traditional, open-frame generator that is stable and can be raised above ground level.The device was made to work well in harsh conditions and in the great outdoors.With a dry weight of 81.6 pounds, the 100302 can go with you wherever you need power.The open frame design of this product also makes it easier to grab and move.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Champion-100302 compare to other generators with the same power output.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
