In the title compound, di-aqua-bis-(ethyl-enedi-amine-κ2N,N')copper(II) bis-(2-nitro-benzoate), [Cu(C2H8N2)2(H2O)2](C7H4NO4)2, two di-aqua-bis-(ethyl-enedi-amine)-copper(II) cations and four nitro-benzoate anions are present in the asymmetric unit. All four anions are 'whole-mol-ecule' disordered over two sets of sites. The major components have refined occupancies of 0.572 (13), 0.591 (9), 0.601 (9) and 0.794 (10). The CuII ions exhibit slightly distorted octa-hedral geometries. In the crystal, cations and anions are connected to each other via N-H⋯O and O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a two-dimensional network parallel to (200). The inter-molecular contacts in the crystal were further analysed using Hirshfeld surface analysis, which indicates that the most significant contacts are O⋯H/H⋯O (42.9%), followed by H⋯H (35.7%), C⋯H/H⋯C (14.2%), C⋯C (2.9%), C⋯O/O⋯C (2.2%), N⋯H/H⋯N (0.9%) and N⋯O/O⋯N (0.3%).
