What is the engine rpm of the 2500-watt model (with eco off)?

Asked by Shaun October 10, 2020
1
Answer

The inverters have a variable machine, meaning the the larger the load plugged into it, the louder and faster it will run (RPM) and vice versa. Thank you.

Does it have a gas gauge ?

Asked by Ledyard October 8, 2020

Answer

This unit does not come with a fuel gauge, but we recommend to fill it before you start it and use the rated run time to gauge how long it will last. Thank you.

Absolutely Perfect!!!
Customer review from championpowerequipment.com logo
My wife and I bought a 2018 Winnebago 2455BHS Travel Trailer...with an optional outdoor kitchen. The kitchen part was fine...but for us...the little electric refrigerator was a waste of space. Remove the refrigerator, buy a Champion 2500W Inverter Generator to fill the new space, and now we have something that will be useful for years to come. I conducted the initial "out of the box prep"...and started it right up. Oh My Goodness!!!!! that thing is QUIET!!!! I can't wait for the 2021 camping season to start...to take advantage of our new toy!!! I actually have three generators...a BIG one for the house...a medium one for portability...and the new "Absolutely Perfect Champion" to keep onboard the trailer to use whenever it is necessary. I am very impressed and feel the extra bit of wattage will allow it to do things some of the other brands won't.

My best generator yet
Customer review from championpowerequipment.com logo
This my fifth generator of my own in my lifetime and my best and quietest generator yet. Powers tools and electronics great with little noise at all. My 24 inch work fan that I use in the summer is louder than the generator is. I bought this unit to replace a 5 year old 1500/1200 watt champion generator that is still running great but it has about 500 hours of use on it and it was time to upgrade. Out of my 5 generators this is my 3rd champion generator in a row and I just order my champion generator that will be used for home use. I can say this brand of generator is the best in my opinion.

Two Thumbs Up on this Generator
Customer review from championpowerequipment.com logo
I purchased this generator as a smaller replacement for a Champion 2800W/3200W generator. I loved the old generator but it is overkill for powering my 17' Casita travel trailer. This little guy is a power house and at only 40lbs, it is the perfect size for my application. It powers all of my appliances including a Coleman Polar Cub A/C drawing 1K-1.2K watts, a induction burner, and an 1800W Breville Smart Oven. With the eco mode on it will rev up to meet power demand and then soften back into eco mode when the appliance is no longer in use. So far I am very pleased with this product and would highly recommend it for those looking to power a small RV.

Does not put out the wattage that they claim. This seems to just be the 2000 or 2200 watt generator relabeled as a 2500 watt. Even after the 5 hour break in period and then running another 5 hours and a 2nd oil change just for good measure, it still burns oil and smokes like crazy. Especially on start up and every time the rpms raise up from idle on Eco mode. It will not run my 11,000 btu rv air conditioner even with a supco spp6 hard start kit. (AC alone, nothing else running). Definitely going to return it and go with a Honda.

Response from Champion Power ExpertJuly 30, 2020
We re very sorry to hear about this experience with our 2500-watt inverter. Please be aware that if you are at a high altitude, the unit will lose 3.5% of power for every 1000 feet above sea level. If the smoke is a blue/white color then oil is being burned. The oil may have been overfilled slightly or during shipping was turned on its side and residual oil settled in the muffler. If it is burning off, let the machine keep running and the smoke should dissipate. If it does not, get back to us right away. Also, you can open the oil cap while the generator is on a flat surface, if oil runs out, it is overfilled. Please email us at support@cpeauto.com, if you encounter any further issues. Thank you.

Great Purchase
Customer review from championpowerequipment.com logo
I researched hundreds of portable inverter generators over the past few months looking for an ideal one to provide emergency backup power for several household items during the upcoming hurricane season. With four children in the house, all I was looking for was enough power to run the fridge, a lamp or two, and charge electronic equipment. I kept coming back to this generator and finally decided to purchase it. I followed the quick start set up page, gave it half a pull and it started beautifully. Quiet enough not to bother close proximity NYC neighbors and enough juice to power the items I was hoping for, Highly recommend this generator

After the initial break-in, I added synthetic oil as I use synthetic on everything I own. Having no immediate need for the generator it was stored in my garage for a few months for that just in case moment. A friend called to borrow it to use with his ice fishing house because his Honda 2000, was giving him issues. I said sure, it needs some running anyway. He called me from the lake to tell me the generator is working awesome. In fact he claims he filled the gas tank and powered his Ice castle for 16 hrs on one tank. Now, his ice castle doesnt draw much power, he runs 12 volt lights off his battery which is maintained by a unit powered by the generator. He does have 110 volt lights which he claims are just too bright and not always needed. He runs a tv/dvd, stereo combo, plus his furnace on 110 volt generator power. He said he wishes he would have bought a Champion instead of spending a lot more on a Honda that gives him less hours per tank and is equally as quiet as the Honda. If he is correct with the 16 hour run time, thats awesome, even at a small draw in eco mode.

I bought this Champion Model 100565 2000 watt inverter for anticipated power outages this summer. I haven't had the need for its use yet, but I'm in the process of the manufacturer's break in procedure. So far, it has always started on the first pull, which is amazing, imo. I particularly like the ability, that they have provided, to run the engine dry of fuel. This is very helpful in keeping the carburetor from gumming up when not in use. I added an hour meter before the first start, in order to track usage and also changed the dip stick to a magnetic type to improve oil quality. This unit is my second Champion and my other is a 5500 watt model 100452 which I bought last summer. Between the two, I'll be able to keep all of our electrical devices running during any power outages. I'm completely sold on Champion products as they all have a 3 year warranty and have all started with just one pull. If there are any changes in my experiences with this inverter, I'll update my review at that time.
