IS THERE ANY COMMON MYTH ABOUT SUMEC FIRMAN SPG1800?

Yes, there is! The most common myth is that Sumec Firman SPG1800 is a 1.5KVA generator; some even say it is a 1.8KVA just because the model is 1800. The truth is that it's a 1.2KVA rated generator, and there are no original SUMEC FIRMAN generators between 1.2KVA and 2.0KVA. This is a common myth in the market and on other websites like Jumia or Konga. Please do not fall for it and overload your generator.

 

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

If the SPG1800 is small for your needs, you should consider getting a 2KVA generator, such as SPG2500SPG2900, and FPG2800E2. These are common choices for those interested in powering a refrigerator or small-sized pumping machine.
