Product Overview

The Champion Power Equipment 201153 2500-Watt Portable Inverter Generator with CO Shield is ideal for camping, tailgating, powering items around the RV or providing backup for a few basics. This unit is not recommended for emergency home backup. Weighing less than 40 pounds, this ultralight model is one of the lightest 2500-watt inverters in the industry. Included are a 120V 20A household duplex outlet (5-20R), plus a 12V automotive-style outlet, and Parallel outlets you can use to power your phone, laptop, or similar device. This inverter operates at 53 dBA from 23 feet - about the same noise level as a dishwasher running in the next room. Using gasoline, the 79cc Champion engine produces 2500 starting watts and 1850 running watts. When the 1.1-gallon tank of gasoline is full, this inverter will run up to 11.5 hours at 25% load. CO Shield technology monitors the accumulation of carbon monoxide (CO), a poisonous gas produced by engine exhaust when the generator is running. If CO Shield detects unsafe elevated levels of CO gas, it automatically shuts off the engine. CO Shield is not a substitute for an indoor carbon monoxide alarm or for safe operation. DO NOT allow engine exhaust fumes to enter a confined area through windows, doors, vents or other openings. Generators must ALWAYS be used outdoors, far away from occupied buildings with engine exhaust pointed away from people and buildings. Meets the requirements of ANSI/PGMA G300-2018.

I am absolutely thrilled with my generator !
I did an insane amount of research and comparisons when contemplating getting a generator to fit my needs . I literally matched and compared them all , for price, value, noise level , gas efficiency, weight , and usage versatility . My decision came easy from seeing the results of my research. And it was the absolute right one for what I needed . I Love it & I have Not one regret !

Great generator
I use this generator on my enclosed trailer, but I also tested it with my 15 amp miter saw and 14.5 amp air compressor. It took the miter saw a little bit to get up to full speed but it still worked. The gas and Propane switch works great. I noticed you have to shut it off then switch it for it to work. It's really quiet, lightweight and powerful, it's real comparable to a Honda but much cheaper. I love how it came with a propane hose.

    Great value.
    I was originally looking to get a Honda generator for my dry camping needs. I will be running a 8,000 btu ac unit a microwave and a refrigerator off this unit. Much cheaper than the Honda (could have bought nearly two of them for the price difference). It's also very quiet. Very excited about my generator.

          Great working, great customer service
          I have two 2500W inverters and a parallel kit. Parallel kit was missing plugs on one end of the cable. Mark from tech support hooked me up with the missing parts. These start easy and power my big camper with A/C and a full load of bicyclists (6). The entire system works great!!

            So awesome
            Just had it at a goat show. Yes a goat show. To busy to take pics at the show but it did exactly what I wanted and more. Running a blower, clipper, fans and stereo at the same time. Hope it never quits. If so I'll definitely buy another. Thanks champion power equipment!

              i would buy a second 1
              This product has been great we recently had a power outage for 5 days and this inverter generator ran like a champ. i powered up a refrigerator a couple of led bulbs and charged cell phones and nothing no loss in power no flickering only when the fridge starts up but nit held its own and ran for about 9 hours continuously before adding fuel. Wished i had bought the bigger 1 but this definitely did the job. Definitely Silent

                Good little work horse
                I use this generator almost everyday. This is my third Champion generator. This generator easily handles a 6K BTU window air conditioner, a box fan, and a battery tender at the same time. It powerful enough to run a microwave and assorted power tools. In my opinion it's just as fuel efficient as my H Ft

                I would buy this product again in the future for sure
                This product was easy to get set up for use and on eco mode it is super quiet. I plugged in a fan to test it and it didn't even phase the generator. (no noticeable engine increase). I have a larger Champion generator that I've used for years and have had ZERO issues with it, I run it monthly and add some load to it and couldn't be happier with the quality of the product.
