Elepaq Constant 2.8kva Manual Start Generator – Specs Review and Price

elepaq constant 2.8kva generator

Elepaq is a well know brand in Nigeria when it comes to generators, they don’t need an introduction. We will be talking about the Elepaq Constant 2.8KVA manual generator; we classify this as a small household generator, maybe a two-bedroom appartment with few appliances; it’s very similar to the Okayama and TEC colleagues. Elepaq has proven itself as one of the market leaders in affordable and reliable generators in Nigeria. We don’t expect anything short of dependability from this generator and I can tell you that it is unlikely to disappoint you. See prices below.


In terms of load capacity; the max capacity is pegged at 2.8kva while the running capacity is 2.5kva; this is the one that should interest you, most sellers quote the max capacity to make it sounds bigger. 2.5kva means about 8  Amps which will easily operate 5 60W bulbs, 3 ceiling fans, 1 32-inches TV, 1 home theater, and a 150L refrigerator; you can also operate a 1 HP air conditioner on this but it has to be an inverter AC to avoid the larger starting power required by conventional ACs. This (with the inverter AC) will come to about 80% capacity of your generator, I will never advise you to go higher than this to elongate the life span of your generator. With its 15 liters tank, you should be able to get 11 hours at 80% load, this goes to 16.5 hours at 50% load.

This Elepaq  2.5KVA rated generator is a manual start with recoil, no key start with this one; with an air-cooled 4-stroke single-engine.  This generator is very known to technicians in Nigeria so servicing it will not be a problem.  It comes with no tires so it will be better to position it in a safe and protected place from rain to avoid having to carry it. It is well built and will most likely deliver a top-shelve performance. Let me know in the comments if you’ve used one of these before. Always endeavour not to overload your generator and to buy from authorised retailers.
