The Champion 100519 has a 301cc Champion 4-stroke engine that puts out 120/240V, runs on gasoline, and puts out 5,000W at full power and 6,250W when running. This inverter generator has a noise level of 69 dBA, which is less than an office. It starts up with a traditional pull-start mechanism. With 4.2 gallons of fuel, the 100519 can run for up to 13.5 hours on a full tank (fuel consumption is approximately 0.31 GPH). As the 100519 makes a clean sine wave with a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 3%, you can safely plug sensitive electronics into the AC outlets.
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplex outlets and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are on the control panel.It also has 1 DC outlet, which is a 12V 8A receptacle that looks like a cigarette lighter and makes it easy to charge your batteries.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.The 100519 is ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.If the power goes out, you can easily connect it to a breaker box and keep your home running.
On the 100519’s control panel, there is an Intelligauge meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours.This lets you keep track of its status and activity.In addition to this information, some lights let you know right away if the generator is overloaded, if its oil level is too low, or if it is ready.As for safety, the device has an automatic shut-off when it runs out of oil, so you can use it without worry.The Champion 100519 comes with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual , which lets you start using it right away.It also comes with a funnel and a two-port USB adapter.
The Champion 100519 is 26.6 inches long, 25.6 inches wide, and 23.7 inches high.It has a typical open frame design that makes it stable and allows it to be raised above ground level.The design works well in rough places and for hard outdoor use.The generator weighs 121 pounds, so it may be hard to move or transport it by hand, even though it is technically a “portable” generator (movable).But its wheels (dia:8) make it possible for it to move around “Once it’s on the floor, it will be easier to move because of the handle that folds down.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Champion-100519 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.
About the Manufacturer
A US-based producer of power equipment, Champion Power Equipment was established in 2003.The comparatively tiny business has established a name for itself in the portable generator market as well as the larger power equipment market, with a concentration on heavy duty machinery like log cutters, snow blowers, chipper shredders, etc.Their whole product line is American-engineered.The corporation does not, however, disclose the country of origin of its parts.
There is a warranty on the Champion 100519 for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Champion’s warranty policies can tell you more about how long the warranty on a Champion generator lasts.You can also call their customer service line at 1-877-338-0999.
