The Champion 100592 is powerful and versatile because it runs on both 120V and 240V. This is made possible by its dual-fuel technology. When powered by gasoline, it has a running wattage of 6,250W and a maximum wattage of 7,850W. When run on propane, it has a rated power of 5600 watts and a peak power of 7050 watts. The noise level of the generator is set at 74 dBA (A tad noisier than a vacuum cleaner). It uses a simple, traditional pull-start mechanism to get going. With a 6 gallon fuel tank, the 100592 can run for about 10 hours at 0.5 load on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption is approximately 0.6 GPH). If you use propane, it can last up to 6.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank – propane consumption around 0.72 GPH). The 100592 can’t be used to power sensitive electronics because its THD is quite high (20%).
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are among the 5 AC outlets on the control panel.The 100592 has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, which means it is ready for a transfer switch.It can power your home during a power outage because it is easy to connect to your breaker box.
The 100592’s control panel has an Intelligauge meter that shows voltage, frequency, and hours of use.This helps you keep track of its status and activity.In terms of safety, the generator can be used without worry because it has a circuit breaker for overheating and an automatic shut-off when the oil level gets too low.Volt GuardTM, which is built into Champion, protects your equipment and appliances from voltage spikes.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.Along with the basic paperwork and an owner’s manual, which will help you get the generator going right away, the Champion 100592 comes with a propane hose and a funnel.You can also buy the official storage cover and running cover on their own.
The Champion 100592 is 27 inches long, 27 inches wide, and 24.4 inches high.It has a typical open frame design that makes it stable and allows it to be raised above ground level.The generator is built to work well outside and in rough places.The generator weighs 162.5 pounds, so it may be hard to move or transport it by hand, even though it is technically considered “portable” (movable).But its wheel kit (dia:8) makes up for the fact that it is hard to move around “) and a folding handle that makes it easy to move once it’s on the ground.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Champion-100592 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 100592 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.
