Champion's 2000-watt inverter generator is one of the lightest in the industry, weighing in at only 39 pounds. Rely on the 79cc engine with a quiet 53 dBA for up to 11.5 hours of run time. Power up with the reliable recoil start, plus Cold Start Technology ensures a quick start in cold weather. Included are two covered 120V 20A household outlets (5-20R) plus two handy 2.1A USB ports 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.

Clean, Reliable Power When You Need It

Using gasoline, the 79cc Champion engine produces 2000 starting watts and 1700 running watts. When the 1.1-gallon tank of gasoline is full, this inverter will run up to 11.5 hours at a 25% load. Connect this Parallel Ready inverter with another Champion 2000-watt inverter for 30 amps of power. If you purchase the optional clip-on parallel kit which is sold separately, you can integrate two inverters, plus the kit has a standard 30A RV outlet and a 120V 30A locking outlet. Confidently connect your sensitive electronics since this inverter produces Clean Power (< 3% THD). Designed for safety with a low oil shut-off sensor, this model has a 0.5-quart oil capacity. Champion’s Inverter Technology includes smart Economy Mode, which can reduce the electrical load, providing quieter operation, extended engine life, and better fuel economy. Buy this EPA certified and CARB compliant generator with confidence–Champion Support and our nationwide network of service centers will back up your purchase with a 3-year limited warranty and FREE lifetime technical support.
