When the unexpected hits, it's important to be prepared. With the Champion 1,200 Watt Multi-Purpose Generator, you have a plan-B for any power needs in the case of an emergency. With it's 1,200 running watt capacity, this generator is perfect for powering essentials in an emergency. While it's not built to handle larger electronics like air conditioners or stoves, it can power a few small necessities. That could be things like a cell phone to call for help, lights to see at night, or a TV to get updates from news sources. The tank of this portable generator can hold up to 1.5 gallons of fuel. With a full tank, it can keep running for 10 hours if you only use half of the maximum power output. That's enough to keep you through a whole night or day if necessary. If you only use it when you need to, those 10 hours can be stretched out much further. Sometimes the unexpected comes in the winter, which is why this generator comes equipped with Champion’s Cold Start Technology. This technology helps the generator start quickly in the winter, which can be vital when you need heat in the midst of a blizzard. There are also several settings that add safety to this generator. One of those is the push-to-reset button. This button makes it easy to reset the generator. It also has a low oil shut-off sensor to keep the machine from running without oil. But what about those times when it's not an emergency? Thankfully, this generator works just fine then too. Those who enjoy camping, tailgating, or who need portable power for home improvement can take advantage of the energy that this generator can provide. That way this Champion 1,200 Watt Multi-Purpose Generator can be of service in both emergencies and daily life.

Why no fuel meter?

I have chosen Champion before because of the propane option. The lack of fuel gauge is ridiculous but other than that they are alright.

Excellent generator at a great price

Easy to operate and light weight enough for one person to use, this generator was what I was looking for and more. It starts easily and runs quiet. Has the wattage I need to get the job done!

Strong, Reliable and Easy to use

Solid machine!

We picked this unit up to provide just a little juice for our camper to charge up our batteries and run some lights, water pump, etc. We wanted something small, light, and "just enough" power. This is it! It's easy enough to throw it in the truck you…
