IS THERE ANY COMMON MYTH ABOUT FIRMAN SPG2200?

Yes, there is! The most common myth is that Firman SPG2200 is a 1.5KVA generator; some even say it is a 1.8KVA or even 2.2kva generator just because the model number is 2200. The truth is that it's a 1.2KVA rated generator and there are no original Sumec Firman generators that are between 1.2KVA and 2KVA generator. 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 SPG2200 is too small for your needs, you should consider getting a 2KVA generator, such as SPG2500 or SPG2900. These are common choices for those interested in powering a refrigerator or small-sized pumping machine.
