Very easy to set up. Heavy but I was still able to do it all alone. A minor complaint, since oil is so essential it should be included even if it was necessary to charge for it. I purchased at Costco and had to make an extra stop to buy a quart of oil. Mixed emotions: I would love to use it but haven't had a power failure yet so that is great!
OOPS, I SEE I RATED THE ACTUAL COMPRESSOR WHICH I BOUGHT AT COSTCO. FOR THE RECORD COVER FITS PERFECTLY

Utilisé pour couvrir une génératrice Champion de 5 500 wats, donc de dimension moyenne.
Ajustement parfait. Élastique au bas de la toile qui s’ajusre à la base.
Bonne qualité de la toile.
Je recommande ce produit.

Recieved my cover today in the mail. It is a nice heavy material and fits my 11250 watt Champion generator very well. I would not want to use it for long term outdoor storage but perfect for keeping the dust off or temporary storage outdoors. Very happy with my purchase.

The size corresponds to the description. The material is of very high quality (and comes with an extra patch for repair).
I bought it to make my own generator enclosure. It worked perfectly. I used 1" PVC tubing and connectors to create the frame, put this cover on top of the frame, and created a similar opening on the other side of the cover (with some Velcro). Now there's an opening on the exhaust side and the intake side.
Finally, I can operate my generator when it is covered!

If you want to do this as well, make sure you have about 2"-3" to spare on each side of your generator cover, so the heat won't be so close to the cover. I recommend this even for smaller generators. Mine is 29"(L)x25"(W)x25"(H) and this worked PERFECTLY.

Fit my Yamaha 7200DE very well. Handy that one side opens up with velcro and tightening straps. I can put the cover on, use the folding handle to move it around+++.
I'm using it indoors as a dust and dirt shield but there is no doubt it could easily be used outdoors.

Very good quality and fits my Yamaha 7200 perfectly. The material is very heavy duty and covertly securely stays on the generator even in high wind conditions. This is not your typical thin ripstop nylon but a dense and heavy synthetic material.

This is an amazing battery that provides all the power I need in a black out or power failure. I can charge it up by solar panel or AC outlet, and even from the car. and it has enough outlets to charge every smaller device I have for weeks. This would be perfect for camping and CPAP users. It has enormous power and small size. The price is very reasonable for all the power you get.

Love the size of the unit, it charges faster than advertised and works great! We used it during the recent snow storm and it lasted a full 9 hours. We are thinking of buying a second one.

This coupled with a quality solar panel and a base camp USB LED light will keep you going - 4 stars because it will not charge while being charged - but that is disclosed. We will see how it does long term I have only charged it 2x and used it to power up phones tablets and other smaller back up batteries.

A more powerful unit is required if you want it to run your fridge or furnace blower in a power outage. This is a good starter to get your feet wet and use for smaller tasks. Charges hand held devices and will keep the campsite lit up all night.

I just received the IGen2500 to use as a back up power source. It arrived quickly and everything was in good shape. It comes with a funnel so filling it with oil is easy and clean. It also comes with what looks like an extended socket for replacing the spark plug.
It fired up on the first pull and ran smoothly for the half hour that I used it as a test. It isn't silent, but you can talk without yelling when you are next to it, so pretty good compared to older gennies that I have used. I ran some lights and a couple of other small items off it in the garden shed and everything seemed to be fine. No flickering or surging. I will update this later when I have used the unit a bit more with appliances and such around the house.

I'm very happy with this purchase. First it arrived in perfect condition and seem appropriately boxed. I was very impressed with the easy starting and it seems very solidly built. Starting for the first time took 4 pulls. Starting a few days later on a -10C morning took two relatively gentle pulls. Standing right next to the generator with it running you can still talk at a normal voice level and hear each other. Stand 20ft away and it's very quiet. I bought this generator because it was at a lower price point than similar generators from other brands but I wasn't familiar with the brand as a generator company. At this point I think I made the right decision. The only thing I wish they did differently is add a 12v DC connection or replace the 5v usb with 12v.

My family just went through a 55 hour power outage after a tornado in our area. We decided that we want to be better prepared for the next time. We lost most of the contents of our fridge and some our our deep freezer. After looking at many reviews and generator types I decide on this one. We know that this generator will not run the entire house but this was more about providing power for the essentials in an emergency. I just don't have the space for a massive 7000 watt generator and the noise those make would probably drive my neighbors crazy.

After putting the oil/fuel in the generator it started up on the first pull. I let it break in for the first hour, then changed the oil. Tests of this generator are very positive. I am able to run

Started on the first pull. Very quiet, was A little bigger than i thought it was going to be. Our plan was to use this for gold panning running equipment, its too big to carry by hand, But we are building a backpack for it so it can be carried that way. weighs about 50 lbs not with much fuel in it, Ran a 1500 watt heater off it and it barely increased the noise. I cant describe to you how quiet it is. You wont be disappointed with this purchase. The only gripe i have is you have to remove the large side panel to add oil rather than just have a little door to open. you would need to carry a Phillips screwdriver wherever you take it Kind of a pain. Otherwise Great product. 5 stars

I feel obligated to give an honest review of this product. I was having difficulty finding an affordable, light weight and portable power source for my CPAP machine. Since being on CPAP, I have not been able to fully enjoy the outdoors like I used to, specifically camping in a tent. Speaking to various CPAP manufacturers and RTs really got me nowhere; portable power options did exist but were very expensive and complicated. When I saw this advertised on Amazon, I took the chance and ordered one. Now I have not taken it out camping this season yet, but soon will and will update my findings then.
The unit came almost fully charged, in perfect condition, lighter and smaller than I imagined. I tried two different CPAP machines over the course of two nights at home. First night using a Resmed Airsense 10 with humidifier, powered the machine approximately 5 hours.

Fantastic. I bought this to power my CPAP while camping and charged it up when it came and tested it last night at home. I have no idea if this matters but I bought a 3-foot hose and the DC adapter for my machine. After using it for 7 hrs, it still had lots of power according to the battery level indicator and if it's correct, I should be able to get 2-3 nights out of a single charge. It's also a perfect size to fit in my panniers on my motorcycle. The build quality is great and it is half the price of the battery from the CPAP store and has so many more uses. Here is a tip I am not sure if anyone has mentioned. Since I am using this camping and it'll be left behind while I go off and do stuff, I will

Bought this specifically to power a CPAP machine when back country tenting, an activity that because of battery weight was never an option with my current 12V set up limiting me to campgrounds or vehicle. This product fills that gap. Light weight, compact and easily packable in a pack or carried by hand. Initial tests using the 12V DC power outlet has a run time with my IntelliPap travel size CPAP (12 pressure setting) of 16 hours with 2 bars still showing. I estimate it will power my cpap for 3 nights averaging 7 to 8 hours of use per night. Note: I only used this to power the CPAP. This unit also makes an excellent backup power supply incase of short duration power outages at home or travelling. I am going to follow this review up in the fall after more extensive field testing. So far "I Like It".

Waited a bit before doing review first one I received only worked for about 15 minutes then kept blowing overload breaker even with nothing plugged in. Amazon customer service was excellent to deal with and sent me out a replacement right away and had defective one picked up from my house no charge to me. New one has probably got 50 or so hours on it now and running great. Not as quite as my 3000 yamaha inverter but not much louder definitely not a noisy generator. I would recommend this generator because of price and portable size and weight of it.

We are happy with this purchase. We were trying to get something that was good quality and made in America but it seems this is built in China, so that was disappointing. Aside from that, it has performed well so far ( purchased in July, so used only 3 or 4 times). Pretty easy to move around, is as quiet as a generator can be and easy to operate. Good enough for charging battery and using toaster, hair dryer, tv etc....not enough to juice the microwave

I bought this a couple of months ago when it went on sale for $499. For that price this is excellent value, the generator is quiet enough for camping and compared to a Honda at more than twice the price, you can't go wrong. Will be using it around the house and for dry camping with our trailer.

Literally cant say anything bad about this unit!!! Price is great, shipping was fast, Runs great, fairly light weight and quiet, does what i need it to do and the propane option is awsome.

I have delt with champion in the past for service with another generator i had before and there customer service is really amazing, honestly companys these days with good customer service is very rare, and its awsome to see how champion takes pride in there products and service, and have extremely competitive prices.

I was leary at first about buying this product but after reading all the reviews, decided to take the plunge. Works as described if not better. The attraction was that it ran on propane and it runs like a charm. No more gas messes. Can't wait to have it hooked to my camper next outing.

Transfer switches are very important if you want to run your house of a generator in a power outage as it is essentially an interlock to prevent you backfeeding the utility grid, and potentially electrocuting a linesman.

Now that I bought and installed this, I guarantee my power will never go out again. I set this up to run a subpanel off either utility or generator, and it works great (in testing anyway, havent had another power outage!).

If you need to change breaker sizes in this its easy to do, they are standard siemens type q breakers. So I took one of the 100A breakers out and put a 30A for my small generator, this allowed me to run a much smaller cable to the garage and be properly protected. I then used the spare 100A breaker in my main panel to feed the utility of this transfer

This unit seems to be well built and would be ideal for a pony panel installation. I want something between my main 100 amp switch and the main panel in my house. My electrician claims it does not meet the code in my area because it is only a two pole breaker and so it shares a common neutral. I need to find something else.

As always from Amazon I recieved my package on time and actually a day before the expected day given.
The Inverter itself I'am very pleased with. I tested mine at home for a couple weeks before dragging it out to the lake. We use ours for our camping trailer and it's perfect. Run's my AC in my camper and everything else I need it for. It's very quiet at idle speed and very decent even when reved up higher. I'd say for myself my fav thing about this inverter is the remote option! Call me lazy if you want, but if I'm watching a late night movie in the camper and don't feel like getting up and going back outside to shut it off, I can just push one button right from my bed and done deal.

I like the electric start feature but it isn't really remote start unless you turn the key on. It will stay active for 15 minutes but after that it's not remote start unless you turn the key on again. Not a biggie.
It's pretty quiet but but louder than people talking as they claim.
Get ready to do a little cussing when you hook up the leads to the battery.. it's a very tight spot.
When you change the oil there are about 5 bolts to choose from.. the manual doesn't help much here.
Build yourself a ramp to work on it.. everything is close to the ground.
Good unit so far!
I've had it for 6-7 weeks. All of a sudden.. NO START. Go to the manual. Make sure sure there is gas/oil in it etc. Still no start and manual says to clean spark plug. I put a new one in it. You have

I bought 5 of these units, we had a issue with one unit. we received one of the units with gas and oil inside the units. the other 4 where brad new and we filled it with gas and oil and they started right away. the 1 unit we had to bring to service centre since it would not start at all. they charge us 40.00 $ to give us estimate to find the problem. after 2 weeks at the service center they called us back to let us know that the unit was poorly maintained and they replaced the oil and gas in the unit is working. when the unit did not start we emptied the gas and the oil and put fresh gas and oil like we did with the other 4 units. I picked up the unit and they service centre did not refund the 40 .00.

Sized just right for our needs - 220 well pump, freezer, fridge, sump pumps - at a good price. The next step up is expensive and we really don't want to keep an engine running for things we can work around or do without during a power failure.

I liked this product very much. The connectors were well made and easy to set up. I carry the panel with my camper at all times and get 2 to 3 amps of charge through the day. This allows to replenish the power used by the fridge ( gas valve solenoid) the night lights and our phone charging. It extends my off grid time by 5 days.

I have a cottage off grid and I bought the solar panel to keep my 12 Kw generator starter battery charged during the off season. This size panel and charge controller were recommended by a generator technician. I had a smaller solar panel (7 watt) but it did not do the job and I ended up having to purchase a new battery.

It ran perfectly and kept up with the demand.

So far I am impressed with this product. I tested it using a 500W portable ceramic heater, and it worked perfectly. It is WAY better than the "portable" battery backup solutions (e.g. lithium or lead-acid) because CarGenerator allows for more appliances and will last WAY longer, not to mention it is way lighter. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND CarGenerator as part of your power outage emergency kit.

Bought this generator to use when boondocking with our 35 foot 5th wheel. Its dual fuel so I don't have to carry or purchase gasoline since I am running a diesel truck this is a great help. We always have propane available and I have it step up to run right out of the back of my truck. This generator makes things easy with remote start, fuel choice and the way its is built.

By Amazon Customer
The product is really well designed, you have dual fuel gas and propane (very important, when the power is down in your town or neighborhood, you won't be able to fill you gas can, but you can still buy a filled propane tank). Switching from one supply to another is very easy. You also have a remote starter, convenient during the Canadian winter (it will not work for the initial start, but you can stop it for one hour or two and start again without going out again).
Now do not follow the manual for the initial set-up, it is easy but the battery has to be connected BEFORE you attach the wheel, not after. Moreover the generator is delivered with a quart of engine oil 10W30, it is OK for California, but for Canada what you really need is a quart of 5W30.

Wow better than I expected. Just camped on batteries for 3 days and half of one day was raining and batteries were full just about the entire time. Left camp with fully charged batteries. Only used the lights, water pump, heater, furnace. No ac.... but usually I would be under half power after this trip. Better and cheaper than a fancy generator. And I wired the ends with gator clamps and put controller in a plastic box so it's portable and I can easily use to charge my trolling battery.
