One of the most popular electric generator brands in Nigeria is the Tiger generators. This Tiger brand is known to manufacture generators with power rating below 2KVA. As a result of the affordability and portable nature of Tiger generators, small businesses such as electricians, beauty salons, small business centres and many homes make use of tiger generators.
Due to the shortfall in the power supply in the country, there is unsteady power supply and this has increased the usage and popularity of the Tiger generators in addition with the fact that Tiger generators are affordable and suit the income profile of quite a lot of Nigerians. However, with only a few models now available in Nigeria, Tiger generators now have their glory days in the past.

They are designed to power small numbers of low power demanding appliances for short periods of time. Using them overnight will make them to break down easily and quicker than expected.
Low power output
Tiger generators can not be used to power your refrigerator, microwave, or pressing iron. Also, as the generator starts getting older, you probably will have to switch off a few appliances. This means you might want to consider saving and going for bigger ones like the ones from Elemax, Sumec, Honda, Elepaq, and others especially if you plan to use more appliances in the future.
Loud noise is not associated with these generators alone. In fact, it is one of the problem associated with almost every kind of generators running on petrol.
