WHAT APPLIANCES CAN THE FIRMAN FPG3800E2 2.5KVA GENERATOR RUN?

The FIRMAN FPG3800E2 generator can power most home appliances such as;

Although, the FIRMAN FPG3800E2 generator can power only one 1.1HP, or just one 1.6HP or one 2.2HP FIRMAN Inverter AC under the normal link mode.

 

THIS GENERATOR IS TOO SMALL FOR ME. WHAT IS THE NEXT LARGER SIZE?

If the FPG3800E2 generator is too small for you, consider getting a 3.0KVA or a 3.5KVA generator, such as the ECO4990ESECO5990ESSPG3800E2SPG4000E2FPG4800E2 and AC6000E2. These are common choices for those interested in having a more extensive coil. Also, a 3.0KVA or 3.5KVA generator can simultaneously power a 2500W pressing iron, a 1HP non-inverter AC, a 1.5HP inverter AC, and a fridge and freezer with a few extra light bulbs and fans.

 

WHICH GENERATORS THAT ARE SLIGHTLY SMALLER SHOULD I CONSIDER?

The generators smaller than the 2.5KVA generators are the 2.0KVA. The options available under the 2.0KVA generators include SPG2500SPG2900FPG2800E2 and RD2910. They can power essential home appliances like light bulbs, fans, television, and three Firman 1.1HP Inverter ACs under the gen link mode or two Firman 1.6HP Inverter ACs under the gen link mode without other appliances.
