The Champion 201047 has a 120V output and great power and versatility thanks to its dual-fuel technology. If it is powered by gasoline, the device has a running power of 1,800W and a starting power of 2,400W. If it runs on propane, it has a rated power of 1620 watts and a starting power of 2400 watts. 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 53 dBA, which is just a little louder than rain. 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. With a fuel capacity of 1.1 gallons, the 201047 can run for up to 11 hours on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption is approximately 0.1 GPH). It can last up to 34 hours if you use propane (on a 20 lbs tank – propane consumption around 0.14 GPH). You can safely plug sensitive electronics into the AC outlets because the 201047 makes a clean sine wave with a Total Harmonic Distortion of less than 3%. (THD).
On the control panel, there are two 120V 20A duplex outlets (5-20R).It also has 1 DC outlet: a 12V 8A receptacle that looks like a cigarette lighter so you can easily 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 lights on the device will show if the oil level is too low or if the generator is running too hard.The inverter generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it quick, easy, and convenient to check how much gas it has.As for safety features, the device has a circuit breaker for overheating and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worry.The Champion 201047 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 oil, a propane hose, a dual port USB adapter, a funnel, and a tool kit.
The Champion 201047 is an inverter generator with the following dimensions: L19.6 x W11.8 x H18.1 in, So, it looks better than most other products with open frames.The generator has a modern look and is easy to use when generating power for fun.The 201047 is lightweight enough that you can take it anywhere.The 201047 is also easier to move from A to B because it has a handle built into the case, which gives you a much better grip.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Champion-201047 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 201047 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.
