The purchasing price of Elepaq Generators differ based on the following:
- Brand type
What to look out for before buying an Elepaq Generator
It is important to understand the characteristics of a generator before making a purchase. These characteristics are otherwise known as the generator rating. A knowledge of the important ratings of Elepaq generators and how they affect their performance will help you make an informed buying decision.
The following are some of the important rating/characteristics you should look out for before making a purchase.
Output Voltage: The value of voltage supplied by the generator set is the output voltage. Ideally, it ranges from 210V to 250V for most generators in Zambia. For Elepaq generators, the output voltage is usually about 220V.
Rated Power: This is the load that a generator can carry under normal operations. At this power rating, generators are designed for standby supply and not continuous usage. This rating is in KVA or VA or W. KVA simply means 1000 VA. Hence, a 1.5KVA generator is the same as 1500 VA. To enjoy optimal power supply, it is advisable to buy Elepaq generators with rated power above your need, so that you don’t exceed rated power.
Maximum Power: There is a maximum load or power that a generator can carry over a very short period (less than 30 minutes). Under no circumstances must this power be exceeded. Although most Elepaq generators can carry load up to maximum power, it is recommended that you operate generators within rated power. Always ask to see rated power and maximum power on any Elepaq generators panel before you make purchase.
Rated Output frequency: This is the frequency of your generators output voltage. In Zambia, it must be 50Hz, in some other countries it is 60Hz. When buying any Elepaq generator, always ensure that the rated frequency is similar to public power supply.
Fuel type: Diesel or Petrol. Most Elepaq generators run on petrol. However, there are a few that usues diesel fuel.
Recommended Engine Oil: The recommended engine oil for each brand of generator can differ. Other times, it can be the same.
Presence or absence of an Automatic Voltage regulator (AVR): One of the unique qualities of Elepaq generators is that they come with AVR as Elepaq generator manufacturers do not produce small size generators.
Dimension: You should also consider the available space for operating and storing the generator.
Starting method (excitation method): Elepaq generators comes with either key (kick starter), recoil starter (rope & grip), or both. The ones with key starter are easier to use, but will cost more. If your budget allows for it, key start generators are highly recommended.
Portability Kit: This includes everything that makes moving your generators easier such as wheels and rollers, and handles. Elepaq generators with wheels or rollers and handles are easier to handle. Though they will cost more but you are sure to get value for your money.
