Generator sets are classified into different categories on different basis: brand name, fuel type, (physical) size, power/supply capacity, number of amp outlets, phases, etc. However, the majority of people buying a new generator are mostly concerned about the supply (carrying capacity) as it is the most important criterion.
No doubts, when buying a generator, size matters. But you should also know that if you buy a big sized generator and underuse it as a result of low load or wattage, the appliance is only a waste of investment money.
Don’t get me wrong though, a generator with high KVA (like these 3.5KVA generators) is good, but a small generator can get things done too.
Best 2.5KVA Generator
The generators below are some of the best 2.5KVA generators to buy in 2020:
1. Elemax SH3900EX
Like Tiger, Elemax is also a household generator name. The Elemax SH3900EX is not exactly a 2.5KVA generator as it delivers a bit more with 2.8KVA capacity. It comes with many improved features that trump majority of 2.5KVA out there.
First off, the fuel tank is sized at 17 litres, 2 litres bigger than the average 2.5KVA generator fuel tank. This big fuel tank design automatically translates into longer operational period/run time.
Other features include automatic voltage regulator(AVR) redefined frame and control panel, increase output power among a couple of others. For latest prices and more options, Click Here.
2. Sumec Firman SPG3000E2 2.5KVA Generator
Sumec Firman is a popular brand known for the quality generators it produces. If you are in the market for a new 2.5KVA generator, picking up this SUMEC FIRMAN SPG3000E2 wouldn’t be a bad idea.
The SPG3000E2 is one of the best 2.5KVA generators around and has a 15 Litre tank, a single phase, a single load receptacle, and dual starting mechanism — recoil rope and electric key start.

3. TIGMAX TH3500DX 2.5KVA Generator
The TIGMAX-TH3500DX is another 2.5KVA worth its price. With a 6.5HP 4-stroke single cylinder engine, the TH3500DX sports a 15 Litres petrol tank which when full, can run up to 16 hours (at 50% load though).
This generator had 2 load receptacle port but can only be started by recoil rope. It is also lightweight when compared to other 2.5KVA generators — probably due to the absence of handle and wheels. For more, Click Here.

Speaking of design and aesthetic, Lutian did a brilliant job on the LT3600 — bright orange and black mix of colours, rubbers grips on the frame to serve as handles etc.

The FA3000P boasts of a GX160 Engine which reduces exhaust smoke to the barest minimum. The generator’s voltmeter is backlit; allows for output monitoring in the dark.
Albeit the FA3000P has small tank capacity (13 litres), it boasts of top-level fuel efficiency. The 2.3KVA generator can be acquired at a price ranging from NGN 120,000 to 150,000. For latest prices, Click Here.

2.5KVA Generators are not the biggest generators set in terms of power supply. But like I said earlier, they have the capacity to power a household and offices depending on the load or appliances to be powered by the generator.
