LG Electronics (LG) has announced the release of its latest Residential Air Conditioning (RAC) in Nigeria. The LG Gen Cool Inverter V Air Conditioner is designed for the Nigerian market. This AC meets the demands of customers who want to use air conditioners in Nigeria with small capacity generators.

It comes with benefits ranging from:
Affordability: Average 75% generator size reduced with gen mode,
Energy Efficiency: Save running cost by maximum 40% through LG advanced inverter V technology
Durability: LVS, AVS & PCB up to 450 V ( Stronger and wider protection).

Unlike the conventional AC (On/Off types) which requires big size generator to start AC due to high start-up electric power, LG Gen Cool Inverter V AC can be started with smaller generator due to LG inverter technology. In accordance with LG, for the normal mode 1HP AC needs 1.5 KVA generator while 1.5 HP requires 1.7KVA and 2HP needs 2.2KVA.

The LG Gen Cool Inverter V Air Conditioner comes with the Gen Mode which allows for the use of small capacity generator in areas where electric supply is insufficient eliminating the need for large generator. Easy and convenient, the Gen Mode works by minimizing start-up electric requirements.

For customers who desire to use AC with lower capacity than above mentioned generator types, they can choose Gen Mode on remote control (1HP – 0.9KVA, 1.5HP – 1.1KVA, 2.0HP – 1.5KVA), but in the case of Gen Mode, the power performance goes down by around 30%.

Speaking at the event, managing director, LG Electronics West Africa operations, Deog Jun Kim said “going with our notion of Africa at heart we introduced products with local relevance. Starting with Plasma, Titan AVS, Mosquito Away air-conditioners & our latest energy-efficient solution, the GEN COOL Inverter V AC, which allows 1HP AC to run on small capacity generators of 0.9 KVA with Gen Mode .This air conditioner comes with Eco-friendly refrigerant -R410A

LG’s innovative product performs reliably regardless of electricity supply issues or extreme outdoor temperatures. Incredibly durable, the air conditioner features an upgraded power circuit board (PCB) and corrosion-resistant technologies that ensure greater operational longevity. Importantly, the GEN COOL Inverter V provides the strong, dependable cooling needed to keep Nigerian consumers comfortable year-around.

LG’s Gen Cool Inverter V offers Nigerian consumers efficiency, cost saving and durability,” said general manager, Air Conditioning and Energy Solutions, LG Electronics West Africa operations, Junhwa Jeong. “Thanks to the innovative Gen Mode, our latest air conditioner can work effectively when being run off a small capacity generator. Not even high outdoor temperatures or power grid failure can prevent this impressive model from providing strong, reliable cooling. LG will continue to meet the needs of the African RAC market with a comprehensive range of residential solutions.

Unlike many other residential air conditioners, the Gen Cool Inverter V works well when powered by a small capacity generator. The Gen Mode, which utilizes LG’s inverter Hz control technology, reduces the voltage necessary for start-up and reliable operation. As a result, the Gen Cool Inverter V is able to run on 60 to 70 percent less electricity than most conventional models.

LG’s new RAC solution for Nigeria combines excellent functionality with dependability and rugged durability. An upgraded power circuit board (PCB) is responsible for the air conditioner’s wide 145V to 350V operational range. It also enables the Gen Cool to cope with power surges of up to 500V. Meanwhile, the double powder coating and Platinum Fin protect the compressor from wear and corrosion, which in turn contributes to greater operational longevity.

Also speaking at the event, managing director, Fouani Nigeria Limited, Mohammed Fouani said “customers who value durability, stability and powerful performance will find the LG GEN COOL Inverter V as the perfect addition to their apartments. The air conditioner reduces indoor temperatures fast, sending out a large volume of 18 degrees celsius airflow for 30 minutes. The Gen Mode allows the air conditioner to operate effectively when powered by a small capacity generator, even at a capacity as low as 2KVA.”

Effective at combating the relentless Nigerian heat, the tremendous cooling capabilities of the Gen Cool Inverter V deliver supreme comfort. With the Jet Cool function activated, LG’s RAC sends out a cool blast of 18 degrees Celsius airflow for a period of 30 minutes, drastically reducing the indoor temperature in almost no time at all.

With the unveiling of the new LG Gen Cool Inverter V, LG Electronics has once more indicated its commitment to continually develop efficient, effective and highly durable air conditioning solutions tailored to the needs of consumers in Nigeria.

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why the power outage issue in naija will not be resolved. They keep coming up with workarounds instead of fixing the issue itself – give Nigerians constant power supply!!!

      Nope LG won’t give you ppl power in Naija. They’ll just keep making money from you due to your government’s lack of competency when it comes to power supply. Smh.

    How come there’s never a review section where users can express their feeling about a particular product?
    Instead we have bloggers (more like ‘A’ kissers) showering praises on a product and its makers.
    I Just need to here to hear from users of this particular product. Shikena!

    The fact remains that this invention has got nothing to do with solving your NEPA National Embarrassment and Public Annoyance. The issue with steady and stable power supply is very different as a whole. It’s emphasis is strictly on power efficiency. If I have a product that could slash of my bills by 40% alone, I’ll go for it with no second thought. The reason is, you’ll eventually pay more than 500% of electricity bill in just a little while to come using the low quality and power draining versions of products. The issue with our power instability is connected first of all to our individual discipline. Nigerians are very undisciplined in lifestyle. We believe in waste than we believe in God. How do you know when power is restored in our neighborhood? Is it not someone’s 200w outside lights that tells you apart from the joint choirs of ‘up NEPA’? If that same person is paying the right price for the power consumed, no light including 4w bulb on the outside will be on. Someone said after all the power isn’t always there so let’s use it to maximum when it’s available. What a deluded mentality our people practice. This is the same practice that cuts the transformers’ fuses again and again everytime. The degraded transformer is meant for about 20 houses yet 50 houses are packed on it and everyone wants to bypass the pre-paid meter to enjoy everything at the same time. This is the main reason why we can’t have it so quickly and the government knows it. Unfortunately, we don’t realize it just yet.

    I’m using this product and it’s amazing. I bought it for around 70 thousand Naira as at the end of 2015. I have sort of a review of it on my blog.

      The price might be a bit more expensive. But you should definitely check an LG store or any electronic store.
