The Champion 100571 has a 122cc OHV 4-stroke engine that runs on gasoline and can put out 120V. It has a running power of 2,300W and a maximum power of 3,500W. The device can also work in parallel (ParaLink is not included), which means it can be connected to a similar or compatible unit to get more power. The inverter generator has a noise level of 58 dBA, which is less than a refrigerator. It is started with a simple pull-start mechanism. The EZ Start Dial on Champion makes it easy to start the engine and get to all the controls you need. The 100571 can run for up to 10 hours on a full tank (it uses about 0.12 GPH of fuel per hour), thanks to its 1.2 gallon fuel tank. The 100571 makes a clean sine wave. With a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 3%, you can safely plug sensitive electronics into its AC outlets.
On the control panel, there are two 120V 20A duplex outlets (5-20R).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 100571’s control panel has a digital Intelligauge data center that tells you how many hours it has been running, how much power it is putting out, how often it is running, and how much voltage it is putting out.This helps you keep track of its activity and status.In addition to this information, the device’s light indicator will show if there isn’t enough oil.From a safety point of view, the product has a circuit breaker for overload protection and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worry.The unit also has CO ShieldTM technology, which keeps an eye on the amount of poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) gas that builds up in the generator when the engine is running.CO ShieldTM automatically turns off the engine and lights up a red LED if it finds high levels of CO gas.It’s a nice extra safety measure, but don’t forget to take your generator outside at all times.The Champion 100571 comes with the standard paperwork and an owner’s manual, which will help you get the device up and running quickly.It also comes with a dual port USB adapter, oil, a tool kit, and a funnel.
Since the Champion 100571 is an inverter generator, its enclosed design (L23.8 x W16.4 x H19.4 in) looks better than a traditional open frame product.The design shown here is in line with the latest trends and is great for easy and fun use.The 100571’s dry weight of 57.8 lbs lets you use it anywhere you need to.Also, once it’s on the ground, its wheels (diameter: 5.5″) and telescoping handle will make it easy to move.
We could find any videos of the product at the time of writing. Please search YouTube for any update.

- 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 100571 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.
