Stop summer storms from knocking out your vibe—and power—with the Champion Power Equipment 4250 Watt Dual Fuel Pull Cord Start Inverter Generator, on sale for $568 at Walmart, down $231 from its $799 retail price. 

Champion Power Equipment


This Champion Power Equipment generator is 50% quieter and 20% lighter than other 3500-watt generators, with enough oomph to power your fridge and home lighting in a power outage. You can also use it for camping or in your RV thanks to its built-in 120V 30A RV power outlet, plus two 120V 20A household outlets and two USB ports to charge your phone, laptop, or other devices. Duel-fuel means it can be powered by gas or propane, with a switch of a dial changing between the two. This power solution will run for 22 hours at 25% load with a 4-gallon gas tank, and will run for 21 hours at 25% load when using a 20-pound propane tank. We think you’ll be happy with your purchase, but it’s easy to refund thanks to Walmart’s great return policy if you change your mind.
