Example of such Gens are : the small 650W power Tiger Gen popularly known as 'I pass my neighbor' generator others are the 3200s Gens which are bigger than the small ones and holds more current.

The 650W Gens don't carry much power and can't power major household appliances, such as a 5000volts Stabilizers, UPS, Fridge, etc, you know any thing that's more than it's 650W capacity.

2. Diesel/Gas powered Gens This simply means it uses Gas or diesel to power it. This type of Gen is less popular than the fuel Gens, they are mostly used on Generators that are called Listers or Plants, are usually measured in KVA, for instance those white Mikano Gens used in Telecom masks.

Diesel Gen
This generators don't just manufacture Electricity by itself there are a lot of things that goes into electric generation, the generator is first filled up with fuel, diesel or recharged and then it is started and connected via a copper wire, this wire is linked to the main house wiring via circuit breakers.

It might be said that this Gens are mainly used in Africa, especially in Nigeria, but then it's used in other continents, it might not be rampant in America or Europe, but they have standby in case of emergencies.

Generators are mainly produced to be used as standby power generator, to complement the normal Public or Government power
- used for emergency, in case the regular power supply is not available

The benefits of Generators are many, the above are just few of the things a Generator can do.

Let's look at what you need to watch out for when buying a power Generator

What do you need? Do you need a work Gen or a home Gen or both? Considering this questions would help you decide what type Gen you need to get.

For Gens that will be used at home, you need to consider what it'll be powering, the minimum in this case is the 650W small Gen, this powers the basic things in your home, like Television sets, your Laptop or Desktop, the lights in your home, it doesn't power your fridge, UPS, Electric cooker and other heavy home appliances.

If you want a complete package, that is Gens that will power every thing in your home shoot for Gens that are rated in KVA, for example the  Elemax 2.6KVA Petrol Generator or the cheaper  Sumec Firman SPG2500 Gen will all power every thing in 1, 2, 3, or 4 room apartment.

Citizen Elite
For places that require heavy power like banks, Schools, Offices, some homes and business establishment that have heavy equipment like printing press etc, the bigger capacity Gens are needed, the 650w, 1, 2 or 3 KVA Gens won't do it. They need bigger capacity. Listers which are diesel engine is ideal for this, they make use of Gas not Fuel. If you don't like such heavy looking Diesel Engines,  try this portable one the  Hyundai 5.0KVA Diesel   Generator,  this is very portable at the same time strong and rugged.

However if you're so in love with Fuel powered Gens, the 10 KVA  Citizens Elite Electric Q-10000E Generator is the best for office complex, schools and hospitals.

For large establishment, especially ones that is based in manufacturing, Fabrication and production Diesel powered Listers are for you.
