Does this generator produce "Clean Power" in reference to using with computers..

Computers and power-sensitive equipment require “clean power.” Clean power is electrical current that is consistent and has a stable signal, or sine wave. Is this generator safe to use for computers and other sensitive equipment that need "clean power"?

The Generator itself runs great, good fuel usage, quiet, i have ran it for over 10 hours at a time and it does perfect. However My Generator came shipped site to store with home depot and it was damaged, one of the top frame bars is bent and i have a cracked damaged air filter casing. However It states you can not return to a store and I needed a generator now, not to be mailed back to Champion to be fixed or replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prior to this generator I had a super quiet model but someone decided they needed it more than me... Prior to this generator I had a super quiet model but someone decided they needed it more than me and five finger discounted (stole) it from my vehicle. I decided I didn't want to shell out the money for the quiet generator again and decided to go with the Champion model. That was 3 years ago and I've gotten my money's worth out of this unit. Consistently starts up 1st or 2nd pull. In trying to determine the capabilities or if this generator is right for you... 1. I found 1600w/2000 peak was not sufficient to run the AC on my boat or travel trailer. Sometimes the initial surge would cause the generator to stall. Many boaters I know would buy two of these and run a parallel kit. Plus smaller generators only hold about a gallon of gas which means you're going to run out in the middle of the night unless you also get a run time extender setup; essentially an external tank. I like the larger fuel capacity of this model because I can top off the generator's fuel tank before bed, it runs all night, and well into the morning if I want to sleep in. 2a. The 3500w/4000 peak can run a reasonable number of things on a boat but there are many electrical systems so you may have to pick and choose. IE you can run the a/c, fridge, battery chargers, lights, TV, etc. But throw in the stove, water heater, and microwave in and its going to cause the generator to shutdown. That's why most boats with on board generators produce 8,500 - 10,000w and burn so much fuel; to ensure everything can run. 2b. Travel trailers typically also have propane so unlike a boat you don't need as much power to run everything. I can run a 30' travel trailer (and possibly bigger) with zero problems and that includes the microwave, two fridges (outdoor kitchen and indoor kitchen), battery chargers, outlets, TV, lights, etc. 3. The 68db outside your window and for surrounding neighbors can be annoying. Ideally you want a long run of cable to put the generator as far away as possible. It can be a super quiet generator if you get it far enough away! 4. In terms of adapters, the RV adapter has worked for me no issues just be aware some of the bigger travel trailers might have 50a and you'll need an adapter and be aware you may not be able to run everything. Boats use a different adapter as well and I found normally you can only get them to adapt to the household style outlets so you're limited to about 15-20a instead of 25-30. 5. The generator fits in the bed of my super duty truck without interfering with the tonneau cover. I suspect it would be the same for a full size truck as well. 6. It can be lifted and moved by 1 person but 2 makes things much easier. Misc: I've ran this generator 72 hours straight just topping off the fuel throughout the day and never had any issues. There is a yellow wire that attaches to a position sensor that you need to be careful of. If it gets disconnect the generator will still work but it will sound "off".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works 24/7 when you need it, this one is now named Harvey Bought used, sat for 6 months, then Harvey showed up. Checked oil(ok & clean), fueled it up, set choke, started on 3rd pull. Ran complete tank, cool down 10-15 minutes, refuel, pull twice to restart, run complete tank. Did this for 3 days straight and this little guy didn't bat an eye just did it's job. VERY RELIABLE when you NEED power. Ran window AC, fridge, freezer, LED light, chargers. small fan. Made living in 1 room much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Champion 4000 generator This has to be one of the best generators I have ever purchased and I have had several over the years. Starts on the first pull every time and runs quite and flawlessly for hours on little fuel. I am extremely pleased with my purchase. Thanks champion and Home Depot.

Awesome generator, rated at 12hrs 50% load but I got 15-18 hrs on a 50% load. Hurricane Irma took power out Sunday morning and by Sunday night this baby powered window AC, battery chargers, phone chargers, fridge, fan and whatever other small device needed a charge

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this product again. I just started using this product, and I have to say, it is a solid generator. It runs very quietly and strong. Very easy to set up and get running. The portability of it is less than par, but makes for bigger muscles.

I purchased this generator for my Motorhome after its built-in generator failed and I needed something to use until I could get it repaired. Initially I was having problems with my airconditioner placing too much of a load on the generator and causing the generator to shut down. I called customer service and the representative was able to walk me through the process of adjusting the output and it resolved my problem nicely. I'm very satisfied with the generator and highly recommend it. The generator starts easily, the price was very affordable and the noise is acceptably low.
