10 Points to consider before you buy Inverter (ups)

luminousThe important things we have to consider before we go for inverter (ups) purchase are listed below.

1. Search for Best dealer in your city. Don’t go for any bundled offers from big electronic shops. In most cases these Big shops won’t take any responsibility after sales, they simply point their fingers towards the manufacturer. So, choose only authorized dealers of Branded inverter UPS companies. Usually these dealers own only small sized shops, but these guys are very responsible and quick in service. Particularly, in maintaining the batteries and inverter, we need these dealers help.

2. If price really matters to you, just choose branded inverters with lower capacity (i.e., 400 VA to 600 VA). Never go for lower end non-branded, local made inverters. These crappy non- branded inverters will simply spoil your valuable electronic devices connected to it.

3. If you choose Microtek, Luminous, APC or Su-kam, first collect the phone numbers of at least three authorized dealers. Then call them and ask for the best prices of your preferred inverter model.

4. While taking to dealers, pretend that you have enough knowledge about inverters (UPS) and batteries. Use the wordspure sine wave, “VA”, Battery AH etc., Never ask them any simple questions like “how many fans and tube light can I use with this inverter?” you can find answers for this simple questions from this website itself. If you do ask such simple questions, then the seller would find out that you are not a pro, as a result naturally he won’t offer you lower price from the first enquiry itself.

5. Before going for purchase, you should decide the right model suitable for your home of office need.

6. 600 VA inverter is sufficient for family with 4 members.

7. Pure sine wave inverters are always better than squarewave or modified sinewave inverters.

8. Price difference between 600 VA pure Sinewave inverter and 600 VA Squarewave inverter is only Rs.600 to Rs.700/-

9. Only buy Batteries with international quality certification. Buying battery and inverter from a same brand is not advisable. Buy battery individually from Top Branded manufacturer.

10. Tubular batteries  always have one or more years extra life when compared to flat plate and semi tubular batteries.

  • bindu

    what is the difference between semi tubular and tubular batteries in inverters?

    • admin

      Semi tubular is nothing but a flat plate battery. It has less number of lead plates compared to automobile battery. Mostly, semi tubulars are deep cycle batteries designed for Inverters ( for long run).

  • Mangala

    It is mentioned in the above post ( 10 Points to consider before you buy Inverter (ups)) that “Buying battery and inverter from a same brand is not advisable”. Any specific reason?

    I am planning to buy Microteck Pure sine wave inverteor along with the microteck tubular battery. Is it advisible ?

    • admin

      Dear Mangala,
      Buying battery and inverter from same same brand is not recommended. Microtek inverters are best sellers in the market, at the same time microtek batteries are not the leading product in lead acid battery market. Go for Exide batteries if you need quality, reliability and long life with low maintenance.

      • Inverter Expert

        You correctly said microtek make good inverters and bad batteries so discard them similarly Exide make good batteries and bad inverters !!!!

  • Ashish Sharma

    What about EXIDE HOME UPS pure sine wave 850VA? Buying this product at cost Rs.5500 is advisable?

    • admin

      Dear Ashish,
      Buy Microtek UPS SEBz-850VA Pure sinewave inverter for Rs.4900/- instead of Exide Inverter. It has wide service network.

  • Marc

    Dear Admin,
    I have a Luminous Solo N 600 Inverter. Please suggest the suitable battery for this model. (The previous make given as bundled offer by the dealer does not have any rating markings). We do not face frequent powercuts and this is a backup for couple of hours occasional power failure.

    • admin

      Dear Marc,
      If you do not face frequent power cuts, Exide Invertor Plus 88AH battery is enough for your 600 VA inverter.

      It has 1.5 years full replacement warranty, but it would last long for 3 years comfortably.

      It would cost Rs.5000 to 5500/- at Exide dealer store.

  • Natarajan P

    Hi Admin,

    I’m planning to buy a “Exide Inva Tall Tubular -IT 500 with 150AH” battery. But could you please suggest the most suitable pure sine wave inverter and appropriate VA? I knew that APC,Sukam, Microteck and Luminous are leaders but among these which one is best for my battery?

    Thanks in advance,

    • admin

      Dear Natarajan,
      Exide IT500 is a good choice.

      For Exide IT500, you can opt for Microtek UPS sebz 850 VA Pure sine wave inverter which would cost Rs 4900 to 5300 /-

      Su-kam shiny 850 Va inverter also perform well with IT500.

      Thank you,

  • vinodh m

    Dear sir,
    am planning to purchase an inverter and battery, i have selected exide tubular battery 150AH and microtek inverter 850w. cud u pls suggest me best place to buy this set in chennai at best price.
    thanks in advance.

  • Maheshwar Dutta

    Dear Sir,
    I have a LOCAL Made 800VA Inverter. Please suggest the suitable battery for this. my budget upto 4,000/. In my location maximum time power failure(aprx 10 hrs).

    Thanks for Regards.

    • admin

      Dear Maheshwar Dutta,
      You need atleast 150 Ah Battery to manage 10hrs power cut. But unfortunately no branded batteries are available at your budget(4000).

      You can try Exide champion automobile battery 150 AH, which would cost Rs.8000/-

      You can try Exide champion 88Ah also, it would cost Rs4500/-. But you have to reduce the load to the maximum to maximize the back up time.

      • Maheshwar Dutta

        Sir, Many many thanks for suggest. Actually i will used 3 hrs in a day(4 CFLs,1 Fan), so except Exide Champion any other battery available in the market(now budget 5,000-5,500/).
        I have one more question that if i choose any dry cell, it will be good or not? Please suggest both queries.

        • admin

          Dear Maheshwar Dutta,
          For 3 hrs backup, you better go for 88AH Exide Invertor Plus battery. It has 1.5 years replacement warranty, and the battery would last long for 3 years for sure.

          Exide invertor plus 88AH would cost Rs.5500 at Exide authorized dealers store.

          Dry batteries are not suitable for inverter applications. Only lead acid batteries are compatible with inverters.

          SMF batteries are another option for those who need 100% maintenance free performance.

          • Maheshwar Dutta

            Lot of thanks sir.

  • Srinivas

    Dear Sir,
    This site is extremely good for basic users.
    I am planning to go for Microtek 1550VA inverter. Can you please suggest me Exide battery model that can go with this? My need is 440AH of battery capacity
    Regards,
    Srinivas

    • admin

      Dear Srinivas,
      We recommend you to go for two 200AH tubular batteries.

      Exide Inva tubular IT650 200AH battery would be a good choice for you.

  • Srinivas

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply. Can you please comment if I can continue using these combination of inverter/battery when I want convert to Solar power with required Solar panels & Solar charge controller? Or do I need to change these completely 🙁

  • admin

    Dear Srinivas,
    If you are planning for solar inverter in future, you need to change your inverter.

    No need to change the batteries.

    Many sellers are offering some exchange offer for solar inverters, ask your local dealer about it.

  • Hello Sir, I am planning to buy a luminous sine inverter 800VA & tall tubular battery 150AH, The cost is 4900(inverter) & 9000(battery). But I am confused the same 150 AH battery is available for Rs.1500 less but different model no,but tall tubular only. Can you please suggest,Can I go with this?

    Thanks,
    Varun

    • admin

      Dear Varun,
      Why you take risk on Battery Purchase?

      Luminous Inverter is fine and we recommend Exide Invertor Plus 150 AH , a semi tubular battery with 2 years full replacement warranty.

      It would cost Rs.9500 to 10000/-.

  • cvs rao

    Ihave V-guard 600va ups-60 Royal model with a sealed battery 7 AH 12 volts for my pc back up. it gives a back up for 10 to15 minutes. I stay at hyderabad and require to use 4 CFLs of 11 watts and 2 Ceiling fans. what maximum capacity batterry i can use. can this UPS be used. Is it pure sine wave. I shall be highly obliged to have clarity from you in this. Thanks.

    • admin

      Dear CVS Roa,
      You are asking me about using computer UPS as Home inverter by fixing large battery to it.

      I want to clarify you that Computer UPS are designed for 15 to 20 mins back up only, you can not run computer UPS for 2 or 3 hours by fixing big batteries to it. It has no cooling fan and the parts will get overheated if you fix large battery to it.

      The charger in computer UPS is designed for 7 ah battery only, so if you fix battery above 7 ah capacity to it, it won’t get recharged with UPS 1amp current.

  • cvs rao

    sir, 4 cfls and 2 fans are torun for 3 hours.if ups to be changed i have more load of 205 ltrs fridge and one more ceiling fan. Thank yousir

  • Ajay

    Dear Admin,

    I am currently using Modern 600 VA inverter with Sukam battery (SLA 150AH 18), since this Inverter is very old now and hence i would like to replace it, I am planning to buy Sukam Shiny 850 VA Inverter and will use it with the current Sukam battery (SLA 150AH 18), i wanted to know if this combination is compatible and will work fine ?

    Secondly I have a 32″ LCD TV, do we need to use UPS for this or I can simply connect it with this inverter and its safe to use it over inverter ?

    I know Sukam Shiny 850 VA (Pure Sinewave inverter) is having a UPS mode also but since this swith is on the back side of this inverter and hence its difficult for me to operate it everytime whenever i need to watch TV.

    Do we have any good brand of inverters available with UPS mode switch on front panel ?

    Thanks for your valuable time !

    Regards
    Ajay

    • admin

      Dear Ajay,
      Shiny 850 VA (Pure Sinewave inverter) is compatible with 150AH battery and it is safe to operate LCD or LED TV on it.

  • Ajay

    Thanks Admin..

    Just wanted to confirm when i am running LCD TV on it, should i enable UPS mode or i can safely use it on inverter mode ? Is it recommended to run LCD/LED TV on UPS ?

    Thanks
    Ajay

  • kotesh

    Is there any invertor that supports solar and power through mains input and charge the batteries . So that it collect power from solar panel when its sunny and from main current if its cloudy(i.e in winters,rainy seasons). Please help me also specify the price range.

    Thanks
    Kotesh

    • admin

      Dear Kotesh,
      I hope you are interested in solar inverters, those inverters will fulfill all your expectations. At present, only limited number of branded solar inverters are available in market.

      Price range of solar inverters are similar to branded normal inverters, but you have to pay for solar panels additionally.

  • baiju

    Dear,
    I am having a inverter (Aeon)600VA. I want to buy a new battery 135AH. presently it is working with 88AH battery. (3 computers with LCD monitors)Now I am getting only a half an hour backup. Is there any problem in connecting 135AH battery with this

    Thanks

    • admin

      Dear Baiju,
      It is safe to connect 135 AH battery to 600VA inverter, 100% compatible, no need to worry.

  • Ajay

    Hello Admin,
    I am waiting for your reply, please let me know your inputs on above question.

    Thanks again..
    Ajay

    • admin

      Dear Ajay,
      It is safe to run LCD/LED TV on Pure sine wave inverter, no need to switch to UPS mode while using LCD or LED.

      Waveforms other than pure sine wave are not recommended for LCD/LED TV’s.

  • Ajay

    Thanks Admin !
    One last question, which Sine wave inverter is the best and will you recommend ?

    Thanks

    • admin

      Dear Ajay,
      We don’t recommend a single brand all time, our recommendations depends on consumers requirement and budget.

      APC, Sukam, Microtek and Luminous are the most suggested brands.

  • B MURALI

    sir, I want a silent functioning and no noisable ups in 850va. can you suggest me which is better in between APC 850VA AND SUKAM SHINY 850VA

    • admin

      Dear Murali,
      Both Apc and Sukam are best brands, APC is expensive than sukam.

  • chaitanya

    Hi,

    I am planning to buy an Microtek 875VAe(Sinewave) inverter costs 6200/- and Amaron 150AH Tubular battery costs 11700/- for my home. Difference between Sinewave/Pure Sinewave? Exide-Mega1500(150AH) costs 13,800/- in Hyderabad. Please suggest me the best combination.

    Thanks,
    Chaitanya

    • admin

      Dear Chaitanya,
      The prices you have quoted for both inverter and battery are so high.

      Microtek Pure sine wave inverter 875VA cost Rs.5300/- Only
      Exide Mega 150 AH would cost around Rs.12500/-

      If you can’t get exide battery at reasonable price, it’s better to go for Amaron battery.

      Go for Pure sine wave inverter only, it is suitable for all kind of instruments.

  • jegadesh..k.b

    thank you mr.admin, . your guidelines are very helpful to novice . very enlightining.

  • Wajid

    Dear Admin,
    I am interested to buy a microtek or su-kam inverter of 1KVA to 1.4KVA is there any model where i can use single 150 AH exide battery along with inverter. Some of the inverter i searched online requires 2 batteriesof 100 AH. I dont want to invest in 2 batteries as well as space available is less.

  • Varun

    Dear Admin,
    I want to buy 800 VA Pure Sine Wave model inverter. After reading few reviews i am thinking of going with Su-kam 850VA inverter. I heard Su-kam also gives 150Ah tall tubular batteries. Is it worth going with this combination. the cost quoted is 6500 for inverter and 14000 for 150AH Tall Tubular sukam battery. How is after sales service from Su-kam. Is this rate is correct and can i go for this ?Thanks – Varun

    • admin

      Dear Varun,
      Product selection is good. But the price quote is high, the inverter would cost only 5000 to 5500 and the battery would cost only 12000 to 13000/-

      Sukam is one of the best companies offering good after sales service.

  • aswath

    Great work sir.UR SUGGESSIONS ARE VERY HELPFUL.
    sir iam planning to buy a luminious 1500VA inverter and two
    Exide IT400(115ah) battery for it.
    The price the dealer is stating is
    luminious 1500va=9375rupees
    Exide IT400(115ah) tall=11500rupees
    IS THE PRICE REASONABLE.ALSO DO LET ME KNOW WHETHER THE INVERTER SUPPORTS THE 115ah COMBINATION OF BATTERY….. thankyou

    • admin

      Dear Aswath,
      It’s a good combination and it’s fair deal too. Ask for free installation.

  • Aswath

    dear Admin,
    Yep its a free installation.
    Thanks for your reply.

  • raju

    dear admin,

    I have just bought a a luminious 1500va digital ion sine wave inverter with two exide IT500 battery.Iam confused about a switch which i find in the back of the inverter.The switch which is used to switch between unregulated ups mode and regulated ups mode.Why is this switch used forand its difference .Iam confused about in which mode should i put the inverter.

    • admin

      Dear Raju,
      Regulated UPS mode – 180 v to 255 v
      Unregulated UPS mode-100 v to 270 v

      Always keep your inverter in unregulated UPS mode to save your battery, otherwise your inverter will change to battery mode whenever low or high voltage occurs.

      Regulated mode is for those who want to connect computers to home inverter, in this mode the switchover time is minimal to avoid computer rebooting during power failure. But, if the voltage from grid drops below 180 v or exceeds 255 v, then the inverter change to battery mode automatically. You Should monitor your grid power while using this mode, otherwise your battery will be drained abruptly.

  • A. Perumalsamy

    I am from Tirupur district and want to purchase UPS and Battery, my nearest dealer offers Exide Tubular tall battery 150 AH + Su-kam 850 VA inverter.

    I would like to know the market price of above. Pls advice.

    • admin

      Dear Perumalsamy,
      You didn’t mention the particular model name your dealer is offering.

  • Ajay

    Hello Admin,
    I am looking to buy a pure sinware inverter of about 850VA, I have been given two models..Microtek UPS sebz 850 VA & Microteck e2 875. Which one should i buy ? Please help..

    Thanks
    Ajay

    • admin

      Dear Ajay,
      Microtek SEBz 850va is a CLASSIC MODEL pure sine wave inverter whereas the ‘Microtek E2 875’ is a Square wave model.

      Pure sine wave inverter is always better than square wave inverters.

  • Ajay

    Also please let me know what is the difference between Microtek UPS sebz 850 VA & Microteck e2 875 and if both of them are pure sine ware ?

    Thanks again,
    Ajay

  • Ajay

    Surprised, I have been told that its a pure sinewave, please refer to the link below.. Can you please reconfirm if its a square wave ? http://www.microtekdirect.com/upsswe2_875va.php

    I am also looking for Luminous LB 875, I have been told that Luminous still uses copper transformers while other uses aluminium, is that correct ? Should I go with Luminous or Microtek ? Please suggest the model name also for Luminous and Microtek

    Thanks again,
    Ajay

  • Ajay

    Oh..I thought E2 and SWE2 are same models.. Thanks for sorting out this confusion.
    Regarding the Copper windings, the above link you passed compares the Copper windings Vs Silver windings.. While Microtek doesn’t have silver windings..They say its Aluminium windings in their transformers ?

    Thanks
    Ajay

    • admin

      Dear Ajay,
      I think we need a hammer and other tools to open the transformer of microtek inverter to find the final result, 🙂

      Ok, See this link to clear doubts about aluminum winding in Transformer

  • Laxman

    Hi im going to buy microtek 1000VA pure sinewave inverter and exide Inva Gold or Inva super (IT750/200AH) Battery.

    Is the combination is best and can u let me know the average price of these both product mention above. And where to buy in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

    • admin

      Dear Laxman,
      Microtek 900 va Pure sinewave inverter would cost around Rs.5200 and you can find this inverter at Electronic shops like ‘Apple Electronics, Town hall road Madurai. Prices are really affordable at these shops @ Town Hall Road.

      Buy Genuine Exide Batteries from ‘Mathi Batteries’ Workshop road simmakkal. That’s one of the Big Battery out lets in Madurai.

      We recommend not to go above 150 ah battery for single battery inverter.

      If you want to beat the 14 hours power cut situation in Tamilnadu, Please read our article

  • Shashi Kumar

    Dear,
    Admin,
    I have 800VA inverter (fuzzy logic charging) connected to Exide Mega Inva 1000 (12v 100AH battery), normally it charges at 9.5A current & cuts-off at 14.4V but some times rarely it charges @ 15 – 15.7V,9.5A for around 2-3hrs & battery gets warm producing acid smell, is this normal or my inverter charging system is faulty? Or do this normally happens?

    Bangalore

    • admin

      Dear Shasi kumar,
      Charging current exceeding the normal level would cause serious damage to your battery, your inverter need to be checked by professional service personnel.

      Dear Pawan,
      Amaron 150 AH + UPS SEBz-850VA Microtek Inverter combination looks better.

  • Jai

    Dear Admin,

    I have one more query.

    1) What’s the difference between Exide CEiL CT500 battery & IT500?

    2) Whether the Exide CEiL Inverter is good?

    Please clarify.

    Thanks.

    • admin

      Dear Jai,
      Exide CT 500 is a budget battery which would be 2k less than IT500.

      Instead of Exide inverter, go for Microtek or Sukam Pure sine wave inverters.

  • Jai

    Dear Admin,

    Thanks for the information.

    I am from Salem, Tamil Nadu. We are experiencing 14 hours powercut in a day. With 8 hours of continuous shutdown in between 2 hours of EB power.

    because of this precarious situation, I have decided to get a UPS with battery.

    I want to run my PC with 17″ LCD monitor continuously for 4 hours with 1 ceiling fan and 1 CFL.

    Please suggest a suitable UPS with battery for the requirement.

    I have shortlisted Exide CT500 150AH battery. But couldn’t decide on the Inverter.

    The Exide Dealer told that Microtek Inverters have Aluminum coils and causing lot of problems and suggesting to go for either Exide Inverters or Su-Kam Inverters. Hence, I couldn’t decide on the Inverter.

    Please suggest whether I have chosen the right battery for my requirement and also suggest a suitable Inverter please.

    Thanks for your wonderful service to all of us.

    • admin

      Dear Jai,
      Those dealers who comment about aluminum coil are definitely ‘NOOBS’.

      Microtek Inverters are clearly market leaders in Inverter industry and microtek inverter is available everywhere in our country. Sukam and Luminous are other competitors to Microtek inverters.

      We recommend Microtek 850 va Pure sine wave Inverter “SEBz850” for your load preference, this model would cost Rs.5000 at dealers outlet. Other option is Sukam ‘Shiny’ 850 Va inverter.

      If you are planning to connect home UPS to your PC, then you must switch it to narrow voltage mode (180-260v) to avoid PC rebooting while power cut. If you have 15mins backup UPS for your PC, then there would be no problem in switching the inverter to wide voltage (100-300v) mode.

  • Jai

    Dear Admin,

    This is continuation of my previous post above.
    Thanks for the above clarifications.

    I have got a quote for Inverters & Batteries from various dealers in Salem. The details are below…
    INVERTER: (All are Pure Sine wave)
    ———
    1) Microtek SEBz850 – Rs. 5,700/-
    2) Su-Kam Falcon 850VA- Rs. 5,500/-
    3) Numeric 800VA – Rs. 5,500/-
    4) Exide 850VA digital- Rs. 6,500/-
    5) Exide CEiL 850VA – Rs. 5,500/-

    BATTERY:
    ——–
    1) Exide IT500 150AH Battery – Rs. 15,000/-
    (36 Months replacement warranty+12 months buyback offer)

    2) Exide InvaMega 1500 150AH battery – Rs. 12,500/-
    (36 Months replacement warranty)

    i) one dealer is offering the Exide 850VA digital Inverter+IT500 battery for Rs.21,000/- with installation extra.

    ii) Another dealer offering the Numeric 850VA inverter+ Exide IT150 battery for Rs. 21,000/- with installation.

    1) Whether the above prices are good?
    2) How about the Numeric Inverter performance? They say its a Transfromer model. Hence, better than coil based models. Is it true?
    3) Whether the Numeric Inverter+IT500 combo is good one?

    I find that no Exide dealer in salem is giving Microtek Inverters with their batteries. They are willing to give Exide Inverters, Numeric Inverters only. I find it strange.

    I am willing to take Numeric+Exide combo. Whether its okay?

  • naga arjun

    i would like to go for luminious invertor(850va sine wave)+luminious battery (150ah)for 2 bhk 5 member family is it fair enough sir

  • @Naga Arjun

    You have not mentioned about the actual usage in terms of number of fans, bulbs, etc. So, the admin of this blog may not be able to provide the correct answer for your questions. Please clarify about your actual usage, probably in terms of Watts and number of hours of usage.

  • Toroz Merdez

    Dear Admin,
    The dealer I’m considering going with has suggested that an Exide 1450va inverter, connected with 2 x Exide 200ah Tall Tublar, will be sufficient for my 10hrs+ load-shedding needs. Would you recommend a different brand of inverter? If I can stretch my budget to it, I’m also considering adding 2 x 120watt solar panels to the system to help with battery recharge when power outage increases. I’m a complete novice and can’t seem to find information as to whether the Exide (or any other brand) inverter is compatible with the solar panels..? Any information/advice you could provide at your convenience would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Shyam

    Hi,
    My need is 2 CFL tubes, 2 Ceiling Fan, 1 Laptop for min 3-4 hours backup. I had following as inverter options APC 850 Pure sineware or Exide 850VA with Exide 150AH battery. Pls let me know if this choice is good? And any other recommendation. Any info on prices at Chennai will also be helpful

    • admin

      Dear Shyam,
      For your load preference we recommend APC, microtek or sukam 850 va pure sine wave inverter + Exide 150 Ah battery (tubular or semi tubular)
      Microtek 850 VA pure sine wave inverter would cost Rs4900/ at chennai.

      Exide semi tubular ‘Invertor plus’ 150 ah battery would cost around Rs.11500/-

  • B N Jha

    Deae sir
    First of all money really matters to me. After spending 2-3 days at your site i decided to buy microtek 600 VA inverter and 100 AH exide inverter plus battery. I have to run 2ceiling fan, 4-5 CFL of 11w and 14′ TV (very rare).
    Whether this is adviseable.
    What will be the backup &
    Exide Inverter Plus Battery is competable with inverter.
    Thanks.

    • admin

      Dear Jha,
      Your choice is perfect, microtek 600 VA inverter (both sine wave and square wave) is perfectly compatible with Exide 100 ah invertor Plus battery.

  • Shyam

    Admin Sir, could you pls reply back with your inputs for my requirement…!

  • Sushila

    Dear admin,
    I have installed Exide mega 1500 around 2 years ago and it is not working any more. Technican says one of the cell is not working. The problem is we lost the warranty card and we are not registered online. is there any ways to solve this problem? If we need to scrap this battery, does dealer buys it back? If yes at what rate? Are warranty card exist with hand written serial number of the battery?

    • admin

      Dear Sushila,
      Without warranty card you can not claim exide warranty, your battery’s resale value would be around 2000 rupees. You can sell it @ any battery shop, you can exchange it for new one or sell it separately.

  • Sushila

    Thank you for your kind information.

  • Shyam

    Thanks admin. However, there are multiple options in Exide and i’ve listed three of them – Exide Inva Queen 500+ Or INVARED 500+ Or Tubular-IT 500. Based on dealer info, Inva Queen has been discontinued and price difference btwn IR 500 & IT500 is Rs. 1000 and not sure on what basis should i finalize. Pls suggest. My inverter option is EXIDE Pure Sine Wave Home UPS 850VA.

    • admin

      Dear shyam,
      we strongly recommend to go for IT500, the reliability of IT500 is way better than invared.

      We recommend Microtek SEBz850 pure sine wave inverter and Sukam Shiny 850 va Pure sine wave inverter for Exide IT500. If you still want to stick with exide inverter, please read the comments from users of Exide inverter

  • Thanigaiarasu M

    Hi Sir/Madam,
    We are experiencing 16 hours power cut in a day and night. With 8 hours of continuous shutdown in between 2 hours of EB power. Because of this precarious situation, I have decided to get a UPS with battery in my home (3 tubelite, 5 CFLS, 2 Fan & 1 Laptop).
    Kindly suggest to how much VA I need to buy for the requirement.
    Thanks & Regards,
    Thanigaiarasu. M,
    Kanchipuram.

    • admin

      Dear Thanigaiarasu,
      We recommend Microtek Pure sine wave inverter model’UPS SEBz-1500VA’ with two Exide IT400 Tall tubular battery for your load preference.

  • Gaurav

    Dear Sir,
    Required Inverter for 2 CFL (25 Wht) + 1 Fan
    Power Cut 7-9 hours in 24 hours.

    Selected Microtek Inverter 600 / 600 VA
    Battery : Excide Tubluar 135 AH

    Please suggest us your expert views on this.
    Also please mention Battery and Pure Sine Wave Model No.

    Thanks

    • admin

      Dear Gaurav,
      Your selection seems OK, this configuration can handle your load preference, but we recommend 850 va pure sinewave inverter instead of 600 va.

  • Gaurav

    Dear Sir,

    Thanks for your valuable advice.

    2 CFL (25 Wht) + 1 Fan + Laptop (somtimes)

    So Excide 135 AH will work fine..or I Should go for 150 AH Tabuler Batteries.

    Power Cut ; 7-10 hours in Summers

    Thanks
    Gaurav

    • admin

      Dear Gaurav,
      If your budget permits, its better you go for 150 ah Tubular, you may get additional one or two years battery life.

  • Gaurav

    Dear Sir,
    My Budget is approx 14 to 15k.

    Dealer suggested me following rates in Ghaziabad.

    Inverter 850 VA Pure Sine Wave Microtek)4800
    Excide Inva Red Tub. 135 AH (36 month) 11500
    Excide Inva Plus 135 AH (24 month) 10200

    I m thinking to go for mirotek and exide combination. but plz suggest a good model

    • admin

      Dear Ramesh,
      Microtek 600 VA UPSEB600 – Rs.3500
      Exide Invertor Plus 80 ah- Rs.6000
      Installation – Rs. 500
      ————-
      Rs.10,000
      —————-

      • ramesh

        Thanks for ur info sir…..

        but with 80ah battery is it enough for running my loads for 5 hrs ?. I have doubt on this. kindly clarify

        • admin

          Dear Ramesh, Your total load preference is around 200watts approx. 80 ah inverter is good enough for handling this much of load for 3 hrs, If you can stretch your budget to 14k then you can go for 135 ah Exide invertor plus which would handle your load flawlessly for 6 hrs.

      • Kumar

        Thanks for the reply.

  • naveen

    laptop can u use inverter mode

    • admin

      Dear Naveen,
      No need to switch narrow voltage mode (inverter mode) while you use Laptop. Laptop has a inbuilt battery and it won’t restart abruptly when grid power goes off, wide voltage mode (180-300V) is good enough.

  • Francis

    I just bought an inverter and noticed that my generator cannot charge the inverter. What power input will power and charge a 220v 3.5kva inverter?

      with two

      ‘Exide IT500’

      Inva tubular Tall batteries for your load preference.

  • Raju

    I am looking for a pure sine wave inverter/UPS, for the following load
    3-4 – CFL bulbs
    2 – Ceiling Fans
    1 – 32″ LCD TV
    I am looking at a backup of 3 to 4 hours.
    Please suggest a good Inverter/UPS and batter combination. I am located in Hyderabad, AP. Any dealer information that you can provide would be great. My budget is around 30 to 35K

    Regards,
    Raju

    • admin

      Dear Raju,
      900 VA inverter with 150 ah battery is good enough for your load preference, we recommend Microtek pure sine wave model ‘
      UPS 24×7 – SW900’ inverter and Exide IT500 tubular battery (150ah). Inverter- Rs.5300/- Battery – 14000/-

      Since your budget is bit flexible, you can consider buying UPS system somewhat more powerful. In such case, we recommend

      Microtek 1500 va Pure sine wave model ‘UPS SEBz-1500VA’ with two Exide inva tubular ‘IT400’ (115ah) batteries. This configuration would cost around 30k.

      • Raju

        Thanks a lot for your valuable suggestion.

        Can you guide me to a good dealer for Exide batteries in Hyd, from whom I can purchase the IT400 (115AH) battery.

        Regards,
        Raju

        • admin

          Dear Raju,

    • admin

      Dear Ashok,
      We recommend Pure sinewave 850 va inverter(Microtek or sukam) and Exide Invatubular IT500 Tall tubular battery for your load preference.

      Before using kitchen Mixie, you should switch off all other load on inverter. The recommended inverter would cost around 5k and battery would cost around 14.5k in Andhra Pradesh.

      • ASHOKVARDHAN

        thanks a lot sir

  • Naveena

    Would you please guide me on this question

    • murthy

      good

  • naveena

    At the outset, I would like to appreciate the the deep knowledge and the help you guys are offering to people like us. Thanks for your guidance.

    I am looking at buying UPS with 800VA and 1000AH Tubular PUre Sine wave
    1. What would be the approx cost from Sukom, APC and Access for the above configuration
    2. What are your review on ACCESS Brand.
    3. My objecties are hassle free maintenance, rather minimum maintenance, good support during issues, longer life and durability. Please suggest the best brand
    4. What are the benefits of buying trolley along with the UPS unit

    • admin

      Dear Naveena,
      We strongly recommend to go for Microtek inverter Model SEBz850 which is good performer and low priced (Rs5000/-) in current market, sukam shiny model inverter could be the second preference. We can’t comment on any other inverter models in public.

      UPS Trolley is helpful in terms of easy access during maintenance, but it occupies space and more prone to rat attack. Place your inverter in well ventilated loft.

      • naveena

        thank you. Would you please suggest appropriate battery? I heard exide IR 350 and UPS100 are good. what would be approx cost. OR If there are any other suitable battery please suggest

        • admin

          Dear Naveena,
          Instead of Exide Invared tubular we recommend Exide Mega Inva semi-tubular with 3 year warranty and long life . Price details can be found in this post

          http://upsinverterinfo.com/exide-inverter-batteries-online-price-list-2013updated.html

          • naveena

            Would you please elaborate why you recommend Mega inva semi tubular (3 yr war) over Exide Inva Red tubular (4-5 yr). thanks

          • admin

            Dear Naveena,
            We have sent you some details regarding Inva Red and Mega Inva, check your mail box.

    Dear Admin team, my prvious post was also not published as it was awaiting moderation. I request you to please oblige and publish my question. This will help me make quick decision on buying the Inverter. Thanks again

  • Guru

    Dont buy any inverter which brand is selling the most, bcz they are selling the higher marginal brand mostly, so buying a good brand includes evaluation such like power factor, build quality, charging regulation, switching time(transient time), sine wave purity, safety features, finally the look…
    i prefer APC or V-GUARD

    3. thanks in advance

    • sarvesh

      please answer the above question also sir…

  • TAPAN

    Dear admin, my family belongs from a rural area near Bhubaneswar,ODISHA where power cut (5-6 hrs) is a daily practice of utilities and having low input voltage of 125volt during normal. In order to get backup for 5-6hrs with load about 150watt for my home please suggest me required inverter and battery.
    should I go for 400VA and 100AH ANY BRAND will suitable for my budget 10k.

    • admin

      Dear Tapan,
      I regret for your bad power cut scenario, i can feel the situation.

      Don’t go for 400 va inverter, we recommend Microtek 600 va square wave inverter (model UPS EB600) which would cost exactly Rs.3500/- at dealer outlet.

      Exide Invertor Plus model 80 ah battery – Rs.6000 to 6300/-
      Microtek UPS EB600 va – Rs3500/-

      This combination serves you better than anyother, go for it. Microtek inverter charges the battery when the input voltage from grid is above 100v. So no problem.

      To cut the cost, never opt for any low branded batteries, dealers may try to convince you for 100 ah batteries, strongly refuse the fake offers. This combination will work perfectly and give you more than 6 hours backup for your usage level (150 watts).

      Moreover, above listed prices are the the exact price of products listed here, you may have to bargain with several dealers to get the product for this price. Tell them you have got the prices from our website.

  • naveena

    Are there any possibilities that the dealer can cheat during installation? I mean can they put a refurbished battery and call it as new ? or use old battery and just paste the serial code/bar code sticker on it ?….How can I ensure that my Dealer uses “NEW AUTHENTICATE” Batery and not some used ones. Please guide. thanks

    • admin

      Dear Naveena,
      Serial numbers are not pasted as stickers in Exide battery, they were imprinted in battery, you can call exide call center and register your newly purchased battery with serial number. No worries!

      Toll Free Exide Call Center Number for Service : 1800-103-5454 (call between 8am to 8pm)

  • TAPAN

    Dear Admin,
    Thanks a lot for your suggestion. Will there be any problem for my equipment with square wave output. I am planning for an enhanced budget of 12k as my family some times may use a 14” colour tv, will 600va and 100ah sufficient for 150watt with input grid voltage 125volt.
    Can I use the inverter in charging mode and manual after power cut.
    Pls suggest for any dealer in BHUBANESWAR.
    Thank You

  • MUNISH CHAWLA

    Sir..my requirement is 2 fans and 2 tubeight At shop only for summer cuts.3 hour cut after 3 hour of light.IS 600 VA ENOUGH.IF YES THEN SUGGEST INVESTER AND BATTERY MODEL PLEASE..BUDGET UNDER 10K

    • admin

      Dear Munish,
      600 va inverter with 80 ah battery is enough for your requirement.

      We recommend,

      Microtek Model UPS EB600 – Rs.3500/-
      Exide battery model ‘Invertor Plus 80 ah’ – Rs.6000/-

      So, you total budget will be 10k including installation. These price are exact dealer price and go for anything more than this.

      Thank you

  • Vivek

    Dear Admin, I am looking for a pure sine wave inverter so please tell me which model will b the best between Microtek’s UPS SWE²-875VA
    or
    Microtek’s UPS SEBz-850VA
    or
    Microtek’s UPS 24×7-SW900
    or
    Su-Kam’s Shiney-850 VA.

    Some dealers saying that Microtek is now giving Aluminum binding instead of Copper binding in all models. is this true??? please help me admin…………..thanks & regards

    • admin

      Dear Vivek,
      We recommend Microtek UPS SEBz-850VA inverter as it is more reliable than other new models.

      Microtek has aluminum winding and Luminous has Copper winding, this is a known fact, there is nothing to worry about aluminum winding, both windings are reliable and tested with Indian conditions.

      Do you think Dealers are smarter than Microtek R&D engineers? No way!

      It’s a Marketing strategy to push other products which gives more commission on sales.

      • Vivek

        Admin, Thanku so much for suggestion….in my city, 8 out of 10 dealers are reccomonding Su-kam’s Shiny bcoz of Copper winding and 7 years warrenty (2 yrs Complete & 5 years On Main transformer)….may b Su-kam is giving more profit to them. ……One dealer is offering me shiny 850VA in Rs.4300.
        One more thing…..Su-kam is clamming that Shiny is providing 100% pure sine-wave same as grid supply…please chkout dis http://www.su-kam.com/Power-Solutions/Home-Solutions/UPS—Pure-Sine-Wave/Shiny-Series/26/1
        Please throw some light on the same……
        Thanks & reagrds

        • admin

          Dear Vivek,
          We always recommend two models,

          Microtek UPS SEBz850va Pure sine wave and

          Sukam shiny 850 va pure sine wave

          Both are good performers, reliable and long lasting. Sukam shiny 850va for 4300 is a good deal, we recommend it.

          Thank you,

  • Prem

    Hi Sir,

    your site is really very informative and nice.

    Would like to take ur suggesion.
    My requirement is , 2 fans, 3 tubelights , TV and Laptop.
    As per ur suggesion in previous comments, can i go for Microtek UPS SEBz-850VA and if yes then which battery should i take.power cut in my area is 8 hrs. My budget is not more than 15000. please advise sir.

    • admin

      Dear Prem,
      Your load preference is little bit heavy for 850va inverter, we recommend you to use CFL lamps instead of Tubelights.

      Our recommendation,

      Microtek UPS SEBz850va pure sinewave – Rs.5000/-

      Exide Invertor Plus 135 ah semi tubular battery (2 years full warranty) – Rs.10000/-

  • Shinos

    Sir this requirement is for Bangalore My requirement is 2 fans and 4 CFL bulbs At home at full load and cutting is for 3hrs.Is 400 VA enough. If yes then please suggest a good inverter and battery for it. How much should be the battery AH for this configuration. Budget under 10 k with installation and trolley

    • admin

      Dear Shinos,
      400VA inverter is enough for your load requirement.

      We recommend Sukam Frendy – 400 va inverter, it is a silent performer, light weight and very small in outlook. Cost would be around Rs.2500 to 3000/-

      For Battery, we recommend Exide Invertor Plus 80 ah with 18 months full warranty – Rs.6000/-

      With this configuration you can enjoy long back up time and flawless performance of top branded products.

      For installation, hire a good technician and buy trolley from any electronic shop in bangalore.

      The total cost would be around 10k. Hope this helps

  • Akhil

    Hai sir, i want to buy inverter and battery to run 1lg flatron tv and 2 cfl bulbs and 1fan may be used occasionaly please suggest me sir inv 600va and bat of 88ah is suitable or pls tell i can ru those for less power batteries

    • admin

      Dear Akhil,
      We recommend Pure sine wave Microtek UPS SEBz850va inverter instead of 600va for better performance.

      For battery,
      Exide Invertor Plus 88ah would be a better companion.

  • Tanuj

    Sir, i am looking for 150Ah to 180 Ah battery for my Microtek SEBZ 850va….Excide is out from my budget. suggest me some other brand. and tell me if i go with 180 Ah batery thn how much charging & backup time will increase compare to 150 Ah.

    • admin

      Dear Tanuj,
      You didn’t tell your budget, then how can we suggest a battery within your budget?

      Exide 150 ah “invertor Plus” Model semitubular would cost around Rs.11500/-

      • Tanuj

        Admin, my budget is in under 10k…..what is ur opinion about Amaron, Okaya & Kay-Cee brand? what is the diffrence between semi-tublar & tublar?

        • admin

          Dear Tanuj,
          Amaron 150 ah does not comes under 10k, its a good brand.

          Okaya will fit in your budget, but it’s a product from Microtek inverter company. Quality dos not match with Exide luminous or sukam battery.

          Battery Life is the main difference between Tubular and Semi tubular, Other brand tubular batteries last long for 3 years and Exide semitubular ‘Invertor plus’ battery also last long for 3 years. Choice is yours.

          Exide 135ah Invertor Plus model – Rs 10,000 to 10500/-

  • raguram

    Hi,
    I appreciate your thankless and wonderful efforts in helping the people to resolve their power worries. Currently I am moving to a new place where the power cuts are more. 1 hr power cut every 2 hrs. My load recommendations are,
     3 tube lights
     3 fans
     1 – LED TV
     1- Laptop ( Occasionally)

    Kindly suggest me better configuration Inverter and battery. I appreciate your quick responses on this as I need to finalize things quickly.

    Thanks & Regards,
    raghuram

    • admin

      Dear Raghuram,
      You load preference little bit exceeds the limit of 850 va inverter, if you replace tube lights with CFL, then you could consider buying 850va pure sine wave inverter which would cost around Rs.5000.

      If Budget is not a barrier, then we would recommend 1500va pure sine wave inverter which will need two lead acid batteries to operate.

      we recommend,
      Sukam shiny 850 va Pure sinewave inverter – Rs.5500/-

      Exide Mega Inva semi tubular 150 ah battery with 3 years full warranty – Rs.12,500/-

      Total – 18,000

      —————————————————————————————–

      If you would like to go for 1500 va inverter, we would recommend

      Microtek pure sinewave model UPS SEBz1500va inverter – Rs.8000/-

      Two Exide Mega Inva 100 ah batteries (model ‘FEI0-MEGA1000’) – Rs.8700 + Rs.8700/-

      Total – Rs.25400/-

  • raguram

    hi,
    I am also open to SOLAR iNVERTERS AS WELL.kINDLY SUGGEST BOTH OPTIONS.

    THANKS & REGARDS,
    RAGHURAM

    • admin

      Dear Raghuram,
      People often step back after hearing the cost of solar panels needed for hybrid solar inverters, we recommend Sukam Briany model 850 va sola hybrid inverter. You can install solar panels anytime, just operate it with grid power and add solar panels in future.

  • Vinodao

    Sir,
    what is the advisable charging current and charging voltage of a 88AH Exide inverter plus battery..

    • admin

      Dear Vinodao,
      Charging current recommend for 88ah battery is 10% of it s ah rating, that is 8.8 ampere.

      You should have a branded inverter like Microtek, sukam, Luminous, APC, Mahindra etc, they automatically senses the battery ah rating and auto adjust their charging voltage to match the battery. Local made inverter have some manual switches to select the voltage and mostly they kill the battery with overcharge.

  • harish

    i have a amaron pure sinewave 875va inverter and amaron 150ah battery. Can i add another battery to it. And what is the max ah battery i can use with the 875va inverter.

    • admin

      Dear Harish,
      Don’t add any battery to you 850va inverter. Mixing old and new battery is not recommended. You can add maximum of 200ah battery to a 850va inverter. If you suffer more than 12 hours power cut, it won’t help you. Needs more time for full charge.

  • suresh

    i have amaron 150ah battery. Can i use a solar inverter with this battery. What is the cost of 850 va solar inverter. Can you advice a good brand. Thanks in advance

    • admin

      Dear Suresh,
      You can use solar inverter with your existing amaron battery. Wide range of solar sine wave inverters are available Sukam.

      We recommend

      Sukam High frequency solar sine wave inverter 500watts and 750 watts models – choose according to your load preference.

      Inquire about this to your near by sukam dealer.

  • Binod

    Thank you,

    • admin

      Dear Chadrasekar,
      We recommend 150ah Exide semi tubular battery with Microtek Pure sine wave Inverter for your load preference.

      Microtek UPS SEBz850va Pure sine wave inverter – Rs.5000 to 5500/-

      Exide 150 ah Invertor Plus model (semi tubbular) – Rs.10,500/- (2 year full replacement warranty)

      —————————————————————-

      Other options for battery

      Exide Mega Inva 150 ah semi tubular – Rs.12,500/- (3 years full warranty) (life expectancy 4 years)

      Exide Tall Tubular model 150 ah ‘IT500″ – Rs 14,500/- (4 years warranty0 (Life expectancy 5 years)

      • Chandra Sekhar

        sir, what is semitubular and tubular?
        As Luminous is No. 1 in inverters, why you suggested Microtek Pure Sinewave? not offending, just asking.
        Luminous 600va is not sinewave ?
        I imagined Luminous 600VA and Exite IT500, is it okay for 1 pc (lcd), 1 fan, 1 tubelight?

        • admin

          Dear Chandrasekar,
          If you believe Luminous is no.1 and best of the best, then you can go for it, no problem.

          You can notice here, we recommend only very few models from microtek, not all models are successful. More over, have u seen anywhere in this site that we recommending Microtek inverter batteries or Okaya inverter batteries which is also a Microtek company ?

          We are not affiliated or associated with Microtek, Exide, Sukam or Luminous, we are professionals in this field and we are just helping people to choose right inverters and batteries for their need.

          We recommend only reliable and most successful models with minimal rate of failures, as a professionals we have access to some industry secrets about the reliability of some models, we disclose it here for the sake of our readers who trust us more than their dealers nearby. That’s all for now.

          ———————————————————
          600 va Pure sine wave inverter is enough for the load you are planning for.

          • Chandra Sekhar

            Thank you very very much, sir..

          • Chandra Sekhar

            sir,
            what is semitubular and tubular batteries?
            which is best ?

          • admin

            Dear Chandra sekar,
            Tubular battery is best when compared to Semi tubular, but it is best in terms of life expectancy.

            Semi Tubulars are also reliable good performers in terms of performance. But Tubulars beat them with extended life.

  • Shashi Kumar

    Dear,
    Admin,
    What is PWM battery charging, how it charges the battery? Is it good for traditional lead acid battery ?
    Shashi kumar
    Bangalore

    • admin

      Dear shashi,
      PWM charging means Pulse width modulation charging method, which means multi stage charging according to the charge level of the battery.

      Mostly all modern day branded inverters are equipped with this technology which gives the lead acid battery extended life by multi stage charging.

      It is definitely good for batteries.

  • Chandra Sekhar

    Can we use 850va Luminous inverter with Exide IT500 ?
    Can you describe calculation please,
    For 150ah battery, which inverter to use 600va or 800va ?
    For 600va inverter, which to use 150ah or 100 ah battery ?
    Difference between 600 and 800 va and 100 and 150 ah battery?
    I think backup time is difference, but I have doubts on these to know

    • admin

      Dear chandra sekar,

      A 600 va Inverter is compatible with

      80 ah, 88ah, 100ah, 115, 120, 135 ah and 150ah batteries.

      ——————————————————-

      800/850/900 VA inverters are compatible with

      80, 88, 100, 115, 120, 135, 150, 165, 200ah batteries

      —————————————————

      Back up time and warranty is the difference between 100 and 150 ah batteries

  • Pavan

    How good are AMARON CURRENT BATTERIES(150 AH) and AMARON INVERTER ?
    Please suggest

  • prashant k

    in maharashtra microtek 860 va inverter is available what change does it make compare to 850 va inverter and batteries r also available at 180ah and what is the minimun voltage required for 860 va inverter and 180 ah to get charged.we face load shading 4 hr in morning and 2 hr in the evening. i need to use 2 tubelights,32 inch lcd(evening),2 fans and pc(evening)

    • admin

      Dear Prashant,
      For 4 + 2 hrs power cut and your load preference it’s unnecessary to go for a 180 ah battery, though a 850 va inverter can handle the 180 ah battery, we would recommend a Exide semitubular or tubular 150 ah battery for you.

      Make sure you are buying a Pure sine wave inverter, as you are planning to use LCD TV , you should be careful with this.

      To know the some advantages of 850 va inverter, read this post

  • TJ

    Admin, I am planning to buy 800/850/900VA pure sine wave inverter. In my city 90% traders are suggesting GENUS inverter. they are clamming that only GENUS’s Inverter can give you pure sine wave backup. Few of them are telling that pure sine wave can b generate only with 1400VA or above capacity inverter. please suggest me 🙂

    • admin

      Dear TJ,
      Genus is one of the good quality product available in market. But making statements like “genus only produces pure sine wave current” and “1400VA inverter only generates Pure sine wave” are simply stupid statements made by some novice dealers, don’t give much importance to them, just buy what you necessarily need, don’t go for any double battery inverters for using a load of just 500 watts.

      WE recommend,
      Genus Deluxe 800 VA Home UPS and

      Exide Mega Inva 150 ah semitubular Battery with 3 years full warranty (life expectancy 4 years) – Price – Rs.12500/

      This combination works better !

      • TJ

        Thanks admin….i will go with either Microtek or Sukam 🙂

  • RK

    Hi Admin,

    Information provided here is very useful. I am planing to take inverter of 850VA and battery of 150AH for four fans, four tubes and one TV. Could you please recommend me some configurations. My budget is 15K.

    Thank you.
    RK

    • admin

      Dear RK,
      We would recommend Exide Mega inva 150 ah semi tubular with 3 years full replacement warranty and Sukam Shiny model 850 va pure sine wave inverter for your load preference.

      (If you plan to use CRT 21 inch TV with 4 fans and 4 tubes simultaneously, 850 VA Inverter would not handle the load flawlessly, try to reduce some load or don’t use all the gadgets simultaneously)

      Sukam Shiny 850 VA Rs.5500/-
      Exide MegaInva 150 ah- Rs.12,500/-

      ——————————-
      Other option ( Good as above configuration)

      Microtek UPS SEBz850VA pure sine wave – Rs.5000/-
      Exide Invertor Plus 135 ah semi tubular – Rs.10,000/- (2 years full warranty and 3 years life expectancy)

      • Chandra Sekhar

        Averagely how much life difference is there between semi-tubular and battery ?
        Is there no model in Exide with 135Ah that is with full tubular, not semi ?

        For, 1 fan, 1 tubelight, 1 pc (lcd) with Microtek sebz 850va, Exide 100 Ah, how much backup can I get.
        I want only tubular model, but IT500 is expensive,
        I want Exide 100 Ah full tubular. suggest me a model

  • narasimhachowdary

    sir i want to buy a inverter for home purpose (6 family members ) which one is good , please suggest me ………….

    • admin

      Dear Narashimma,
      An 850 VA inverter would be enough for family with 6 members, we recommend Sukam 850 VA Model ‘Shiny’ inverter for you. It would cost Rs.5500/- . For battery we recommend Exide Mega Inva 150 ah (Rs.12500)

      If you are power user and need power back up for your pc or some more additional gadgets with high current consumption, it’s better to opt for double battery inverter like 1500VA or more. That would be expensive than 850 VA inverter with single battery.

  • sk

    Admin,
    I have APC inverter with Amco battery purchased three years back.

    Now, the load is not that much, that i fan is running for less than 2 hrs after full recharge. I have informed the customer care and the people from apc says that i have to change the battery.

    What battery can i go as my APC is pure sinewave 850va. i dont find any problem in inverter. Suggest me good battery for my inverter.

    • admin

      Dear SK,
      Your battery is in the position of ‘end of life’. You need to change the battery as soon as possible.

      You didn’t mention the AH rating of your battery or your load preference in your comment. So, we could recommend 135 ah and 150 ah batteries which are more compatible with your inverter.

      We recommend,

      Exide Mega inva 150 ah semi tubular (3years full warranty) (4 years life expectancy) – Rs.12500/-

      Exide 135 ah Invertor plus semitubular (2 years full warranty) – Rs.10000/-

      Exide 150 ah Invertor Plus semi tubular (2 years full warranty) – Rs. 11000/-

      ——————————————————–
      You may wonder why this guy is recommending only Exide batteries, the reason is reliability, performance and availability. Thats it!

      Choose any above model that suits your budget. If you could afford Exide Inva Tubular battery ‘IT500’ Tall 150 ah battery, go for it! Price could be around 14k.

  • Lits

    hi
    i am planning to buy an inverter for home purpose.
    need lights,fan,desktop and TV to run with a back up of around 2-3 hours
    spoke to microtek dealer, but he advised me not to buy sine wave model UPS as he says it works good only if there is no voltage fluctuation
    and he is advising to buy square wave microtek860eb.
    kindly advise

    • admin

      Dear Lits,
      Poor dealer with no knowledge about basics of inverter or cunning dealer who try to sell his old stock.

      ———————————————————–

      We strongly recommend Pure sine wave inverter, it will handle all power fluctuations and perform better than square wave inverter.

      Ask your dealer for

      Microtek sine wave model UPS SEBz850 VA, it could cost Rs.5000 to 5500/-

      For battery

      we recommend

      Exide Invertor Plus 150 ah semi tubular with 2 years full warranty – Rs.11000 to 11300/-

      If you can widen your budget, we would recommend IT500 tall tubular exide battery – Rs.13800 to 14500/-

  • Harish

    I have a local 600va ups to run one pc with 17″ LCD display and a fan for 1.5hrs .
    Can you suggest me what ah battery do I need. What is the the cost of the battery. And how much iscthr cost difference between local and branded batteries.

    • admin

      Dear Harish,
      For 1.5 hours back for 1 PC with 17 inch LCD, we recommend 80 ah battery, (100 ah will be more comfortable and have prolong life)

      We recommend

      Exide Invertor Plus model 80 ah battery – Rs.6000 to 6500/-

  • Gkumar

    Hi Admin,

    I’m from Bengaluru.

    I’m planning to go for 1.5KV Luminous UPS and two 150AH Luminous Tall tubular batteries with trolley,the price I got is :
    ion sine wave 1.5KV : INR 7500
    150AH: 13000 x 2 48 months –> INR 26000
    or
    150AH: 11000 X 2 30 months –> INR 22000

    trolley : INR 1800
    the deal can be closed at INR 31000 the dealer says.
    Is it a good deal price and also please suggest about the ups + battery combination.

    Thanks,
    GKumar

    • admin

      Dear Kumar,
      I am sure, it’s a Good Deal!

      Prices are reasonable.

      Luminous is one of top brand in power backup solutions, the feed back about Luminous inverters and batteries we receive from market is good.

      If you don’t mind, share the dealer details with our readers, it could be very useful for other readers from Bangalore.

  • sumit

    Hello Admin,
    I am planning to buy Microtek “E square” 875 VA inverter. Can you please suggest which Exide battery is good for it and how much life I can expect for that battery.Also share the price of both inverter and battery in chennai.We are new to chennai so it will be great if you can even share some dealer details in Ramapuram area.
    Thank You

    • admin

      Dear Sumit,
      We strongly recommend Pure sine wave model, square wave is okay for normal ceiling fans and tube lights , but it would screw your costly LED, LCD or Laptop chargers.

      We recommend Microtek Sine wave model UPS SEBz 850 VA and Microtek SW E2 875 VA pure sine wave inverters. The former would cost Rs.5000/- and latter would cost Rs.5300/- in chennai.

      For Battery,
      If budget is not a constrain, we would recommend
      Exide IT500 150 ah Tall Tubular model – Rs.13800 to 14500 in chennai

      Sukam Tall Tubular SBT 1500 (150 ah) -Rs.10500 to 11,500/-

      Amaron Current 150 ah Tall Tubular – Rs.12000/-

  • Mukunth

    Hi. Sir

    I have plan to take inverter 875 va and battery 150AH.
    In my place the power shut down in max of 12 hours.
    My req is 3fans,3tubelights and 1 TV.
    My worry is
    –> whether the battery will get enough charge on remaining hours.

    Thanks,
    Mukunth R

      Dear Mukunth,
      with 875 va inverter and 150 ah battery

      For 12 hours power shedding

      You must exclude CRT TV from your load preference, LCD or LED 32 inch is okay

      Use CFL instead of Tube lights,

      Don’t use 3 fans simultaneously for long time.

      Replace your old bulgy fan speed regulators with compact dimmer switch.

      Operate Fans at moderate speed.

      If you follow above recommendations, your inverter and battery will not let you down.

    • admin

      Dear Reji,
      Mention the battery brand and model, so that we can give the guideline price.

    • admin

      Dear Reji,
      You dealer’s price quote for 2.2 kva microtek sine wave inverter is not fair, it is overpriced.

      If you have any sukam dealer near your loaction, inquire about this model.

      Su-Kam Fusion 2.5KVA (4 battery type- Pure sine wave model)

      This one is most advanced model compared to microtek 2.2kva sine wave. It has intelligent controls and excellent display system to monitor the battery charging, load, battery state, input output voltage level etc. which will be very help full for commercial use.

      Price guideline

      Su-Kam Fusion 2.5KVA (pure sine wave) (4 battery system) – Rs.12,000/-

      Sukam 100 ah Normal deep cycle batteries – Rs.8500 x 4 = Rs.34,000/-

      Total – Rs.46,000/-

  • Sasikanth

    Hi,

    I am planning to buy:
    Microtek Inverter: 600VA
    Exide Battery: 88AH

    My Requirement: 2 lights, 2 fans, 1 LCD TV, 1 Laptop with a backup of around 2-3 hrs.

    Can you please guide me on this decision.

    Thanks,
    Sasikanth

    • admin

      Dear Sasikanth,
      Your selection of inverter and battery seems good, but if you use all your load concurrently, it would not give 3 hours backup. So, limit your usage during power cut time.

      As you plan to use LCD with inverter, make sure you are buying pure sine wave model.

      • Sasikanth

        Thanks for the Reply.

        We might not use all the items at a time. My usage would be like – 1 Fan/1 TV/ 1 lappy

        Is 600VA not a pure sine wave model? how much will this configuration cost?

        Will this not be sufficient for the usage?

        • admin

          Dear Sasi,
          It will be sufficient unless you use all the load at a time.

          Microtek UPS EB 600 VA – square wave inverter – Rs.3500 to 3800/-

          Microtek UPS SEBz 600 VA – Pure sine wave inverter – Rs.4000 to 4300/-

          —————————————————–

          Make sure you are buying Pure sine wave model

    WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PURE SINE WAVE AND MODIFIED SINE WAVE. DO THE MANUFACTURERS REFER THEIR PRODUCT AS MODIFIED SINE WAVE. IF NOT HOW TO FIND WHETHER IT IS PRUE OR MODIFIED SINE WAVE?

      Dear Venkatesh,
      If your inverter is a branded one, you can easily find it by referring the product specification. Just find the waveform section in product specs.

    hi iam planning to buy exide inverter 850va pure sine wave with exide 150ah tubular battery, can i go for this or microtec inverter 850va pure shine with exide IT500 which one is best combination

    • admin

      Dear prem,
      Square wave inverter is okay unless you use LCD TV or laptops.

      Better exchange your inverter with pure sinewave model of you plan to use any sensitive loads.

      IT500 is in heavy demand, if it is unavailable better go for Exide mega inva 150 ah with 3 Years full warranty.

    • admin

      Dear Kavya,
      For 1000 va inverter, we recommend 150 ah battery.

      There is newly launched model UPSEB 1000 SineWave in Microtek, ask your dealer about this. It would cost Rs.6000 to 6500₹

      For battery, we reommend 150 ah Exide semi tubular model ‘Mega Inva’ which would cost around ₹12500/-

      (During heavy demand price could climb up to 13k)

      Battery warranty- 3 years full replacement

      Life expectancy – 4years

  • siddharth sharma

    Dear Admin,

    Kudos for wonderful job.

    I am from Bangalore and looking for an inverter for my 2 BHK where power cuts are 2-3 hours max at a stretch.

    There is an offer from few dealers for Luminous Pure Sine Inverter 800VA plus Amaron SMF Battery 100AH for 11,800 Rs including free installation. Please suggest if this is a decent offer.

    Secondly I am confused b/w SMF battery and Tubullar battery. I understand Tubullar batteries have longer life time over SMF but how much? They say it could be almost double- SMF 3 years and Tubullar 6 years. Please advice.

    Can I go for above offer which has SMF battery?

    Siddharth

    • admin

      Dear siddarth,
      The price offer you got is good and reasonable.

      Yes, tubular batteries will last long for 2 more years extra compared to SMF.

      SMF is good for families with small child, no gas , no water toppings.

  • siddharth sharma

    Dear Admin,

    Thanks for your prompt response.

    Though I have a small toddler at home, I would still prefer going for a tubular battery for its longevity.

    Same dealer has offered a combination of Luminous 875VA inverter with Luminosu 100AH Tubular battery at 13,800 Rs.

    Both have 2 years warranty with one year extended service warranty.

    I am planning to go ahead with the offer.

    Please advice if I am making a right decision at a reasonable price.

    Thanks,

    Siddharth

    Hi Team,

    I am looking for a good inverter of capacity 1500va for my home which can load 3 tube lights, 5 fans, 1LCD 54inches, 1 cooler and a PC. And my PC should not restart. Backup of 5 hours.

    I heard that 2 150ah batteries are best. If 2 batteries are required, May I choose 2kva inverter.

    Please suggest me.

    • admin

      Dear Charan,
      You could choose 2 kva or 1.5 kva inverter as per your requirement.

      We recommend Exide 1450 va inverter with lcd display(not exide ceil inverter) which has better high charging current and 3 charge selection modes.

      We recommend Exide IT500 tall tubular 150 ah batteries.

      Exide mega inva 150 ah batteries also perform better. Cost effective and long lasting performance.

      • Charan

        Hi Admin,

        • admin

          Dear charan,
          Every branded inverter has voltage selection switch on its back panel.

    My usage would be 4 CFL(4 hours) + 4 fans(6 hours) + 1 32″LCD TV(4 Hours). Power cut is approx. 8-10hrs per day.

    Also suggest which Exide battery would be suitable as per my requirements. Whether I should go for flat plate or tubular batteries considering my power cut and Usage. Also suggest which inverter has faster charging time?

    • admin

      Dear Robin,
      As of now, Exide original 1450 va inverter with lcd display has the better charging current (15 amps) at high charge mode.

      Note: Exide inverter and exide ceil inverter are different products.

      …………………………………………
      We recommend Exide IT500 150 ah tall tubular battery, it can be charged with 15 amp current.

      Exide original inverter is obviously the best partner for IT500, enjoy the full potential of the battery.

      • Robin

        Dear Admin,

        Thanks for the suggestion.

        There is no availability of Exide inverter in my town.

        Kindly, suggest any other alternative i.e between Su-kam or Microtek. Which inverter brand and model goes better with Exide batteries in terms of maximum backup and minimum charging time?

        Thanks

        • admin

          Dear Robin,
          Go for Sukam shiny 850 va, it is one of the best model and performs as per your expectation.

  • sandeep

    Hi,

    I am planning to buy Microtek UPS SEBz-850VA with Exide IT 650. Is it good choice or you can suggest me better. In my area light frequent go and some time fluctuations also.

    Thanks

    • admin

      Dear Sandeep,
      If you have long power cuts like 10 to 12 hours, instead of choosing single battery inverter, select a double battery inverter with two 100 ah batteries.

      It would get better charge in limited availability of power supply from grid.

      We recommend,

      Microtek 1500 va sine wave UPS SEBz1500 VA inverter

      or

      Exide Original 1450 VA inverter with LCD display (not Ceil inverter)

      —————————–
      For Battery
      We recommend
      Two Exide Mega Inva 100 AH Batteries with 3 years full warranty.

      or

      Two IT400 Invatubular Tall 115 ah batteries

      ———————————————————-

      Choose the best suitable product, according to the availability.

  • suresh

    which type va inverter is suitable for running 2 fans, 3 tubelights, one person tells that microtek 650 e 12 inverter and 100 AH battery including installation charges Rs 14000.THIS Combination is good? I NEED information about E 12 650 microtek inverter?

    • admin

      Dear Suresh,
      Microtek E2 650 va inverter is a square wave model, it would cost around Rs.4500/-

      You didn’t mention the battery model and brand, we advice you not to go for any unknown brand battery.

      Exide Invertor Plus model 100ah Battery would cost around Rs.8000/-

      So, the total cost including installation would not exceed Rs.13,000 to 13500/-

    • admin

      Dear Siva,
      Sukam pure sine wave shiny model inverter is one of the best inverter in single battery type.

    Dear Admin,

    I planned to buy a 850 VA pure sine wave inverter to run my sensitive load, but I’m confused by the following 3 Microtech inverters. ( UPS – SEBz 850 VA,UPS SWE² 875 VA,UPS 24×7 SW900) Please explain what is the difference between these three and suggest me a best model.

    Thanks in Advance…

    • admin

      Dear John,
      Microtek has different models in its Pure sinewave and Square wave series.

      All the three models you listed are good performers, But we recommend UPS-SEBz 850 sine wave, which is classic model and most reliable, may be other models are designed with little more features and energy efficiency, we recommend UPS SEBz.

    • admin

      Dear Jidesh,
      The reason why we insist on Exide Mega Inva or other popular models from Exide is ‘Low maintenance’. All battery manufacturers claim their batteries as low maintenance batteries, but of their batteries need water topup once in 15 days during heavy power cuts,

      We have seen some basic models from Exide performing well under heavy power cut situations without water loss for 3 to 5 months, which is best compared to other brands.

      As far as warranty claim is concerned, Exide would take maximum 40 days for replacement in case of any battery failure, during that waiting time your dealer should provide a temporary replacement battery.

      ———————————————-
      You asked about Luminous inverter and Tall tubular battery.

      Luminous Tall Tubular Battery ILTT 18048 with Luminous sine wave 875 va inverter is also a good combination, we surely recommend it.

  • kalpana

    Hi,

    I am planning to buy an inverter and a battery and the power cut in my place is more than 10hrs.
    As per the above discussion i understood that Microtek inverter pure sinewave and Exide battery are best.
    i am confused how much VA and how much battery AH should be there to maintain 4fans,4tubelights and (a TV or a grinder) needs. Please suggest me about this along with cost and also the details of a dealer for microtek in Nandyal (Andhra Pradesh)

    • admin

      Dear Kalpana,
      We recommend

      Microtek sinewave UPS SEBz 850 VA model inverter + Exide Mega Inva 150 ah battery wiuth 3 years full replacement warranty.

      Though Some table top wet grinders are compatible with 850 va sinewave inverters, we advice not to use wet grinders with 850 va inverter, as it could make your battery empty in short time.

    sir,i am confused how much VA and how much battery AH should be there to maintain 2fans,2tubelights needs. Please suggest me about this along with cost and also the details of a dealer in viajayawada (Andhra Pradesh)

    • admin

      Dear Anukureti,
      For 4 hours back up for 2 fans and 2 lights, a 600 VA sinewave inverter + 135 ah battery will be sufficient.

      but price difference between 600 va and 850 va inverter is minimal, and an 850 va inverter has many advantages over 600 va one.

      We recommend

      Microtek sine wave model ‘UPS SEBz 850 VA’ – Rs.5000 to 5500/-

      or

      Sukam shiny pure sine wave 850 VA model – Rs.5500/-

      For battery

      Exide Invertor Plus model 135 ah battery – Rs.10000 to 10500/-

      ————————————————————————-
      If you are budget conscious and want to cut the cost on both inverter and battery, we recommend the following configuration

      Microtek sine wave 600 va model ‘UPS EB600’ – Rs.4000 to 4200/-

      Exide Invertor Plus model 80 ah battery – Rs.6000 to 6500/-

  • raotwits

    Dear Admin,

    I am from Tamilnadu and we face around 10hrs of power cut per day. We will be using one LED Tv, and 2 fan during day time and 2 fans and 3 lights during night time.
    I should go for either Microtek SEBz 600 or 800 inverter and battery

    Exide Inverter Plus 150AH or

    Exide Mega 150AH or

    Exide IT 500 150AH Which will be better and also the difference between these battery are power back up or life or the yrs of warranty.

    Also because of summer i can see that the price have gone high in Tamilnadu. Are prices cheaper in Bangalore or Pondicherry compared to Chennai ?

    Thanks in Advance

    • admin

      Dear Roatwits,
      For 10+ hours power cut situation and your load preference, we strongly recommend you to go for a double battery inverter with two 88ah batteries.

      Only Rs.2000/- extra investment on inverter, instead of one single 150 ah batteries, we are going to use two 88 ah batteries, so the battery cost remains same.

      Exide 1450 va original double battery inverter with LCD display – Rs.7500/-
      or
      Sukam shiny1500 va inverter – Rs.7500/-

      +

      Two Exide Invertor Plus model 88ah batteries – Rs.6700 x 2 = Rs.13400/-

      Best configuration to beat 13+ hours power cut.

      ——————————————————————————
      You could also use Exide Mega Inva 88ah batteries instead of ‘invertor plus model’, it would cost Rs.8500 x 2 = Rs.17000/-

      Dear Muddassir,
      For your load preference, an 850 VA Pure sinewave inverter with 150 ah battery will be sufficient.

      We recommend

      Microtek sine wave UPS SEBz850 VA inverter – Rs.5000/-
      +
      Exide Mega Inva 150 ah battery – Rs.12800 to 13000/-

      Mega inva model is one of the fast moving and most reliable battery model in Exide Inverter battery series.

      It has three years full replacement warranty, which is very long warranty compared to other brands.

      It is not a tubular battery, but it performs like a tubular battery . It has very thick positive plates and low antimony alloy, which ensures long life and very low water loss.

      Life expectancy 4+ years comfortably.

  • vikibai

    Hi,

    Power cut heppens every 3 hrs in my area. I would like to run 2 fans,2 lights and a tv.
    Please suggest me Exide battery(except IT500 150 AH cost high) and microtek invertor.

    In this site you were suggesting to use 875va but One agent asked to use 1kva inverter as it would help in quick charging, considering frequent powercut.
    Please suggest

    • admin

      Dear Vikibai,
      1000 va single battery inverter is not a successful design till now, 850 va inverter is the most successful model. But inverter companies are testing with 1000 va (12v)inverter models in the market, you could not find the model in their official sites, that is because all those 1000 va models are in beta level. If you want to test it yourself, go for it.

      We recommend
      Microtek classic model sinewave inverter ‘UPS SEBz850 VA’ -Rs.5000/-
      +
      Exide Invertor Plus 135 ah battery – Rs.10,500/-

      ——————————————————————————

      If you want to quick charge the battery and escape from 13 hours power cut, we would recommend

      1500 va double battery sinewave inverter – Rs.7500/-
      +
      Two Exide Invertor Plus model 88 ah batteries – Rs.6700 x 2 = Rs.13400/-

  • PraveenBarupati

    Dear Admin,

    We have regular 3hrs power cut and 8hrs power cut once in a month.
    On regular basis our load is 3 fans + 3 tube lights + refregirator. For 8 hrs power cut we can restrict the usage.
    I am planning to buy a 850 VA Pure sine wave inverter with 150 AH battery.

    One dealer had qouted 875 VA Luminous sine wave inverter (did not provide model number) and 150AH SR500+ exide battery for Rs 19,000.
    Is this good combination for my requirement and is this deal OK.
    What is the overall efficiency of the inverter i.e. converting AC to DC and back to AC.

    In addition to power cuts we face high voltage fluctuations. Can you suggest some solution to get rid of this voltage fluctuation.

    Kindly suggest.
    Regards,
    Praveen.

    • admin

      Dear Praveen,

      Luminous 875 va sine wave inverter – Rs.5500/-
      +
      Luminous Inverlast LT500 Tall Tubular battery – Rs.12000 to 12500/-

      LT500 has 2 years full replacement warranty + 6 months prorata warranty.

      ————————————————————————————–

      We recommend the above combination for you, if the battery is not available, try Exide Megan Inva 150 ah battery

      Exide Mega Inva is not a tubular, but it outperforms most tubular battery, it has three years full replacement warranty.

      Life expectancy – 4 years+

      Exide mega Inva 150 ah – Rs.12800 to 13200/-

      ——————————————————————————————–
      Most inverters available in market are only 80 to 85 % energy efficient.

    Dear Admin,

    I am planning to buy an inverter and a battery for backup of min 4 hours. I need to maintain 3fans + 3tubelights and one LCD tv.
    As per the above discussion, I understood that Microtek inverter pure sinewave and Exide battery are best.
    Please suggest me the best product which will be worth full for the money I spent and should give a better battery backup.

    One option I have found from above is:
    Microtek sine wave UPS SEBz850 VA inverter
    +
    Exide Mega Inva 150 ah battery

    Is there any other best option available?
    Thanks in Advance

    Dear Admin,

    We have 8hrs power cut once in a month.
    On regular basis our load is 3 fans + 3 tube lights + 1 DESKTOP . For 8 hrs power cut we can restrict the usage.

    Can you suggest some solution to get rid of this voltage fluctuation.

    Kindly suggest.
    Regards,

  • aj

    hi, i went through this entire thread and found it very useful. i have a requirement to install 3 inverters + batteries for 3 different apartments in chennai.

    my priorities are best price, maintainence free, warranty yrs and after sales support in case of any issues.

    I am thinking of going in for 850va pure sine wave from APC BI850SINE inverter. is this best in the industry or is there a very good alternative that i can consider?
    Reg battery, should i go in for 130 AH (C10) Ultra tubular APC Battery or exide IT500 150 AH tall tubular battery? what is the difference between Ultra tubular and tall tubular?

    whats the best price considering my bulk order (3 sets)?

    • admin

      Dear AJ,
      APC BI850SINE model inverter and Sukam shiny 850 va are very reliable inverters with good performance, service is good in SUKAM compared to APC.

      For battery

      We recommend Exide IT500 Invatubular battery for long lasting trouble free performance with minimum maintenance. Service is good in Exide, but you need to wait for some time for battery replacement in case of warranty claim.

      But IT500 is on great demand in summer, prices also not reasonable.

    Dear Sir

    Its very nice to see a site posting good advice . I have an unusual problem and I hope you will be able to help me rectify it . Two Weeks back I purchased a Microtek Pure SineWave SEBz 1000 VA ,

    The inverter works well but there is a continuous high pitched shrilling noise (not the overload high pitched noise)coming from the inverter that becomes very annoying and almost unbearable if you stand in the same room for a few minutes ,

    on calling the shop where I purchased it they brought another inverter , a Microtek Pure Sine Wave SEBz 850 VA , and when they connected it , the same noise persisted so I told them to connect the original piece again . In 3 of my friends houses they all have purchased Microtek SW E2 875 and there is hardly any or no noise from them at all ,

    now i’m confused , is the SEBz series of Microtek known to have this sound problem ? Is there a problem in the way it was connected at my place because both the inverters had the same noise ? is it a problem with the main power supply ?

    Should I get it replaced with another series , the SW E2 for example ? Awaiting your reply . Thank you .

    • admin

      Dear Slash,
      Check the wiring, confirm whether the neutral from inverter is connected to home wiring properly.

  • Princeton

    Dear Admin,

    Thank you very much for your extraordinary article about points to consider before buying an inverter. Based on your advise I plan to take either “Microtek UPS SEBz850 va model pure sine wave” or “Sukam shiny 850va pure sine wave” and I will consider either “Exide IT500 150 ah Tall Tubular model” or “Exide Invertor Plus semi tubular 135 ah” battery.

    I am in Chennai.Here power cut is 2hours per day.And monthly once 9AM to 5PM power cut will be there for EB maintainance.

    Usage is 3 tube lights and 2 ceiling fans,2 mosquito liquids and occasionally I will use LED monitor desktop PC.Please advise

  • pradyumnajpn10

    Dear Admin,

    I am Vijay from Rae bareli, UP. I went to purchase microtek shine wave SEBz 850. But my dealer told me that “you need perfect electrical wiring and earthing at your home otherwise it will not work so any shine wave model is not advisable for you”. I am living in rented house and doubtful about my wiring and earthing. Is dealer correct or it’s just a misselling? Plz guide me.

    Kindly guide me in getting the best..

    Battery thought of Exide INvared models as they are cheaper tubular batteries.. Not sure 100ah or 135 ah.. Not sure 35 ah makes difference.. Clarify me on this as well.. . Dealers insisting on the same brand batteries as they form cheaper combos…

    My power loss @ home is 2to4 hrs a day… Power shutdown 9am to 6pm per day in a month..so need to use fan alone on tat day for my kid… Suggest me the best combination of inverter and battery.

    Price they quoted for CG650 va pure sw+Exide IR 100ah-15600rs
    CG650 va pure sw+Exide IR 80ah-13600rs
    Usha 600 va pure sw+Exide IR 100ah-14600rs

  • Puneet

    Dear Admin, my requirement is to run laptop, modem and wifi router for around 5-6 hours. Which inverter-battery combination would you suggest ?
    Thanks !

    • admin

      Dear Puneet,
      We recommend sukam shiny 650 va inverter and Exide 135 ah invertor plus battery for your requirement.

      If want most sophisticated inverter which can be monitored and controlled using laptop through wireless technology, then we would recommend Sukam smiley 850 va inverter and sukam LA 150 ah battery, this comes as a package with a fire proof plastic trolley.

  • Manish

      Exide 650 va original Pure sine wave inverter + Exide Invertor Plus model battery 88 ah battery

      4500 + 6700
      Total – 11,200/-

  • VISHAL VODRO

    Hello there,

    Your efforts are priceless & precius!
    No other sites ever did so…

    Because of my job I am moving back to my village from kolkata.
    There power cut takes place around 5 Hrs.
    My recuirements are for:
    5 Fans
    6 Tubelights
    2 LED TVs
    1 Washing Machine
    5 Hrs Power Cut

    Please recoment the best for me. I donno anything about Inverter or UPS.

    Waiting for ur Reply eagerly as I needed to by very early…

    • Admin

      Dear Vishal Vodra,
      If you want to include washing machine in your load preference, it would create excess stress on your inverter and battery, moreover you need to go for high power inverter with 4 batteries which is very expensive.

      So we recommend, not to use washing machine with normal double battery inverter unless it is very urgent.

      We recommend
      Sukam shiny 1500 va inverter
      +
      Two Exide Mega Inva 150 ah batteries

      Above combination is cost effective and best performing combo

      The battery has 3 years full warranty and inverter has 7 year warranty for transformer.

      Use sukam dealer locator to find your nearest dealer
      http://www.su-kam.com/Dealer-locator.aspx

      Price
      Sukam shiny 1500 va would cost around Rs.7500/-

      Exide Mega Inva 150 ah (1 battery) – Rs.12800 to 13000/-

      • VISHAL VODRO

        Hi! Thank you for ur prompt reply with prominnent solution. I left the idea of washing machine. And about costing yes it seems to b pricy! Will microtek 850va upsebz with TI500 combination do for my purpose if power cut remains around 3Hrs on daily and not all devices are eventually on at time…

        • Admin

          Dear Vishal,
          An 850 va inverter is insufficient to handle your preferred load simultaneously.

          I recommend 1500 va pure sine wave inverter with two Exide invertor plus 88 ah batteries, this combo is cost effective and deliver best performance.

  • saniya sharma

    hi admin,

    nice article. i wanted to know how about
    Su-Kam Shiny 850 VA+Amaron Tubular CRTT – 150 ah (Tall) ?
    is it a good deal? and what about life expectancy of CRTT – 150 ah (Tall)

    According to Su-Kam’s Power Calculator when i compare the below chart it comes 1400 VA. So is it accepted with this combo or overload?

    CFL 4 22W
    CFL 1 11W
    FN 5
    TV 2
    ———
    1400 VA
    ———

    waiting for your reply.
    regards
    saniya.

    • Admin

      Dear Saniya Sharma,
      Sukam shiny 850 va inverter + Amaraon Tall tubular CRTT 150 ah battery is excellent combination.

      ………………………………………………
      About load handling

      If you want to run 5 fans simultaneously during power cut hours, then no choice you must opt in for 1500 va Inverter,

      If you can exclude 3 fans from your load preference, then you could opt in for 850 va single battery inverter.

      Life expectancy of Amaron CRTT 150 Tall tubular is 4 to 5 years under proper maintenance.

      • saniya sharma

        thank u admin for quick reply.
        just one small quiry. I think Amaron Short Tubular battery is 160ah. is it good to have instead of CRTT 150 Tall Tubular for extra battery backup. I mean what finally u suggest between the amaron Short & Long tubuler battery when AH is different.
        Pls reply…

        • Admin

          Dear Saniya sharma,
          We recommend CRTT Amaron 150 ah tall tubular battery,

          10 ah doesn’t make any big difference in backup time, if you find short tubular battery is more comfortable to your home, then go for it.

          • saniya

            Dear Admin,
            thank u. had trust on you. blindly going forward as u suggested. Inverter costing 5500/- & battery (tall) is costing 13300/- Total 18800/- is it ok? or overpriced? Oh yes i m from Kolkata

          • Admin

            Dear saniya,
            Price seems OK for Kolkata, ask for free installation.

            Amaron CRTT price would be normally around Rs.12,500 to 13,000/- , but now due to fall in rupee value against dollar prices are increasing in local market.

            Rs.13,300/- is OK

          • saniya

            Thanks. It was a long term conversation with u & ur valuable site. Wish ur site best of luck. keep helping the users like the same… Thanks again… God bless…

  • BIMAL

    dear admin,

    before i write about anything i went through entire post with the comment section.
    which led me to decide that i require 1500 va inverter with 2 batterys.
    i.e:
    10 cfl, 6 fan, 2 tv
    the power cut max 4-5 hours.

    now the fact is that i am having budget around 20-22k
    what could be the best for me in this budget? is it possible to get battery life around 4-5 yars? m confused, pls suggest.

    bimal roy, westbengal.

    • Admin

      Dear Bimal,
      A double battery inverter could handle your load preference, but if you run all the gadgets together you won’t get 5 hours backup continuously .

      If you face intermittent power cuts like 2hrs+1hrs+2hrs, your batteries will get enough charge during short interval of time.

      We recommend Exide 1450 va inverter and Sukam shiny 1500 va inverter (pure sine wave)

      Price of both inverter would range between Rs.7000 to 7500/-

      For battery We recommend

      Exide Invertor Plus 88 ah battery (2 Nos)

      Price – Rs. 5800 x 2 = 11600/- (approx)

      Total cost of Batteries and Inverter = 11600+7500 = 19100/-

      Life Expectancy of ‘Invertor plus’ model batteries – 3 years

      If you want to go for battery with 4 year life expectancy, we would recommend Exide mega Inva 88 ah batteries. But it would cost more.

  • BIMAL

    dear admin,

    for details regarding my early comment:

  • Sachin

    Dear Sir, Is your online help / service still available on this link…

    if yes pls reply to my queries.
    I am Sachin From Pune,
    Power cut in my area is 2 to 4 hrs once in a week. During this power cut period my usage will be 4 fans, 2 Tubelights and 4 CFL’s only.

    I would like to have your opinion on below

    Based on your previous discussions I am planning to install

    Microtek sine wave UPS SEBz850 VA inverter
    +
    Exide Mega Inva 150 ah battery

    Kindly advice whether the above configuration is correct, or under rated or over rated??

    Please Reply on this.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    • Admin

      Dear Sachin,
      Your selection of inverter + battery is perfect for your load preference, We recommend it!

  • sandya

    Hi Admin,

    I have gone through entire post.I am much clear on basics.
    Can you please answer me for the below requirements.

    1. Desktop
    2.Modem
    3.1 fan
    4.1 light

    My budget is around 5k-6k.

    1.Can you please suggest the best configuration?

    2.Also the price in my location as well. I stay in Visakhapatnam (Anakapalle).

    Awaiting for your reply.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Admin

      Dear Sandhya,
      A Desktop PC is a power hungry gadget, we would recommend 850 VA Pure sine wave inverter for your load preference.

      An 800 VA inverter alone would cost around Rs.5500/-

      So, it is impossible to buy a branded inverter+battery for 6K

      Anyways, we recommend

      Sukam shiny 850 VA, Exide 850 va and Microtek Pure sine wave UPS SEBz,

      All the above models are reliable and efficient enough to handle your load preference.

      Price would range between Rs.5000 to Rs.5500/- (only inverter)

      We recommend Exide Invertor Plus Model 88 ah battery for best performance and low price.

      Exide Battery 88ah (FEI0-IN880PLUS) – Rs.6600 to 6800/-

      Don’t go for non-branded inverters and batteries to cut the cost, it would spoil your sensitive gadgets.

  • Kiran

    Hi Admin,

    I am kiran. Thanks for the wonderful info.
    Can you please let me know the answer for the below.

    1 Laptop
    1 Modem
    1 Fan
    1 light

    I want to go with Microtek Inverter + Exide Tubular battery as you suggested.

    Please let me know the configuration please.

    Thanks for your help in advance

  • Admin

    Dear Anoop,
    We would like to recommend two configurations for you.

    If budget is not a concern and you want to go for little sturdy configuration, we would recommend

    EXIDE 1450VA pure sine wave double battery inverter – Rs.7000 to 7500/-
    +
    Two Exide Invertor Plus 88ah batteries
    Rs.6800 + 6800 = 13600/-
    —————————————————-
    If you are budget conscious and still looking for a branded solution, we would recommend

    Sukam Shiny 850 va pure sine wave inverter – Rs.5000 to 5500/-
    +
    Amaron Current CRTT 150 ah, Tall tubular battery
    – Rs.12500 to 13500/-

    —————————————————————–
    Back time will be almost same for above two configurations, but a double battery inverter is capable of quick charging the battery during intermittent and prolong power cut situation.

    You can connect more load with 1450 va inverter compared to 850 va inverter.

    Battery life of 88 ah exide invertor plus would be around 3 years,

    Amaron CRTT tall tubular 150 ah would last for 4 to 5 years under good maintenance.

    Hope this info helps.

  • Admin

    Dear Srinivasan,
    I recommend 850 va pure sine wave inverter + 150 ah battery for your load preference.

    Microtek UPS Sebz Pure sine wave 850 va inverter – Rs.5000/-

    Exide original 850 va inverter – Rs.5500/-

    Sukam shiny pure sine wave 850 va – Rs.5500/-

    choose any one of the above listed models for better performance.

    ——————————————
    For battery
    you could choose any of the successful models listed below,

    Exide Invertor plus 150 ah battery

    Amaron CRTT 150 ah Tall tubular battery – Rs.12800/-

    Exide IT500 150 ah tall tubular – Rs.15500/-

    Exide Inva smart 150 ah

    or

    Exide Mega Inva 150 ah

    Exide Inva smart has three years full warranty and it is just equal to tubular battery. we recommend it

    Dear BKmurthy,
    We are not in favor of any particular brand.

    Of course we included Luminous Inverters and Luminous Batteries in our ‘Top3 inverters and Batteries’ article.

    http://upsinverterinfo.com/top-5-inverter-models-in-india.html

    All inverters are prone to internal component failure,

    it all depends on the input voltage from grid,

    if you suffer high voltage problem all day, your inverter will frequently trip and more prone to failure.

    Improper wiring without any safety is also one common reason for inverter problems.

    Are you running any restaurant or Bakery?

  • Admin

    Dear Rohan,
    Solar panel is the only solution for your problem.

    We recommend

    One time investment – trouble free performance for prolonged period.

    +
    Exide Mega Inva 150 ah or Inva smart 150 ah – Rs.13,000 to 13,5000/- (3 years full warranty)

    Hello Admin
    Myself Reji from Bangalore.
    Before we start you are doing really great job here.3/4th of the doubt in our mind get clear off. After reading all the advice’s that u r recommended.
    Total 3 members in our family.
    Load shedding is happening nowadays,daily max 2 or 3hrs.I thinks its high time so am planning to buy a inverter (pure sine wave)+ battery(tall tubular) for home purpose.
    Here’s my Requirements below:
    Tubelights X 2
    fans X 1(when required)
    CFL X 2 or 3
    TV X 1
    Desk top x 1

    please let me know the prefect brand,model number,price & last but not the least Services.

    I got one quotation, Exide IR 350 100 AH tubular with 36 months warranty + Microtech 675 VA/12V sinewave UPS with 24 months warranty. Rs. 9000 for Battery and 4000 for Inverter.

    which matches with my requirements………..?

    Apc,Microtek, Luminous etc out of this 3 Who are leading best in the present market in-terms of price,sales,services,lasting etc………………?

    Regards

    Reji

    • Admin

      Dear Reji,
      We do not recommend Exide IR with 675 va inverter. This combination is not suitable for your load preference.

      We recommend,

      Sukam shiny 850 va inverter – Rs.5000/-
      or
      Exide original Home UPS 850 VA – Rs.5000/-

      +

      Exide Invertor Plus model 135 ah battery – Rs.10,500/-
      ————————————————–
      Sukam shiny inverter is best in terms of performance and longevity. It has 7 years warranty on transformer and 2 years warranty on other parts.

      Exide Invertor Plus model batteries are the best in terms of maintenance and performance, the most affordable branded solution. It has 2 years warranty. Life expectancy 3 years+

      Total cost =10.5 k + 5 K = 15.5 K

      Don;t opt in for 675 va inverter, the price difference is very low.

      We strongly recommend 850 VA inverter (pure sine wave)

      Sukam, Luminous, Microtek, APC pure sine wave inverters are best selling inverters in the market.

      All branded 850 VA Pure sine wave inverter costs Rs.5000 to 5500/-

      Never pay more than 5.5k for 850 VA pure sine wave inverter.

  • Keith Browne

    Thank you for your helpful article

  • Manoj Mathai

    Would Su-Kam Frendy 400 VA be enough for running a desktop with 22 inch LCD monitor for about 10 to 14 hrs ?

    • Admin

      Dear Manoj,
      The battery you attach matters. I am sure, you can’t use desktop with 22inch lcd monitor for 14 Hrs/day with single battery inverter.

  • Admin

    Dear Katuriraju,
    A 600 VA inverter is sufficient to handle your load preference.

    But with 850 va pure sine wave inverter, you could handle long power cuts.

    Price difference is minimal, so we recommend 850 va pure sine wave inverter with 88 ah battery.

    For inverter
    Exide original 850 VA pure sine wave inverter- Rs.5500/-

    Battery
    Exide 88 ah invertor plus model – Rs.6800/-

    ———————————————–

    Most people install 150 ah battery with 850 va inverter.

    If budget is not a constrain, we would recommend Exide Inva smart 150 ah battery – Rs.13500/-

    Battery has 3 years full replacement warranty and life expectancy of 4 years.

    Don’t go for cheap alternatives.

  • anjaanmd

    Dear admin,

    Firstly, i would like thank you for This wonderful site. It reflects the amount of research you did. May your work be so merrier.

    I had gone through almost every part of your website. It’s nice to learn new things.
    I am from CHENNAI..

    I am in need of a good inverter and a battery to match it.
    I would be using 650w per hour. I need 3 hours backup.

    i thought of buying 850VA inverter with a 150Ah-180Ah battery.

    As you suggested, i contacted many dealers.
    FOR 800-850VA MICROTEK, LUMINOUS, AMARON AND SUKAM -INVERTERS- RS.4700-5300.

    MICROTEK 1KVA- RS 6000

    180Ah SUKAM TUBULAR BATTERY-RS.14300
    LUMINOUS RS.13500
    AMARON Rs.13000

    150Ah EXIDE IT500-RS.13500

    I have certain doubts.

    1)Can i use mixie with those configuration?

    2)I couldn’t single out one inverter for me.

    3)Then, regarding the battery, some of my friends tell that i can go with batteries which need water filling rather than buying maintenance free batteries. They are telling that if i keep maintaining the battery by filling distilled water when needed and placing it in a proper place, the battery life will be much better than the maintenance-free batteries.

    4)If i use only 100watts per hour, when connected to a 850VA inverter, will there be more waste of power. Some people are telling that if we go for big inverters and use less , there will be more power waste. Is that true?

    Suggest the better combination for me.

    • Admin

      Dear Anjaanmd,

      1. You could use normal kitchen mixie (500watts or below) with 850 VA inverter

      2. We recommend Sukam shiny 850 va pure sine wave inverter for trouble free performance for long time. It has 7 years warranty on transformer and 2 years on circuit board.

      Original Exide 850 va pure sine wave inverter is also a good choice. It has LCD panels display which helps you to monitor the battery state, input voltage and load . It has 2 years warranty

      3. Only SMF (sealed batteries) batteries are maintenance free batteries. All other batteries needs water toppings according to your usage.
      Batteries like IT500 needs very less water toppings as it is capable of accepting high charge current, water loss during high charge will be minimal.

      4, High usage or low usage doesn’t matter. There will no high wastage of energy with 850 va inverter on low usage compared to 400 or 600 va inverters, It’s a myth. We recommend 850 VA pure sine wave inverter for better charging current and quick recharge with 150 ah batteries.

      Best combination

      We recommend
      sukam shiny 850 va inverter + Exide IT500 tall tubular 150 ah battery

      If you go for same brand battery and inverter, we recommend

      Original Exide 850 va pure sine wave inverter + Exide IT500 tall tubular 150 ah battery

      Do post your reviews about your inverter and battery after purchase. 🙂

      Good luck

  • Admin

    Dear anjaanmd,
    It is not advisable to connect the inverter to the main wiring. You must do a separate wiring for inverter.

    Exide IT500 (150ah) is the best selling model, other two models are Exide IT500 super and Exide Inva Gold. Don’t get confused with those models

    Just ask your dealer for Exide IT500 (150 ah tall tubular) , it would cost you Rs.14000 t0 14500/-

    Mostly this models is out of stock during summer due to high demand.

    Exide Inverters are very much improved now, thank to R&D

    You can go for Exide Original Inverter without any hesitation.

  • rangesh

    i purchased micrtek inveroter and exide battery 1000plus two years ago but baterry got repair and backup time reduced to 30 mins in six months. i gave complaint to exide retailer they also changed with new one but the new one also got repair with in 6 months. now retailer told to purchase new battery with high capacity 150ah. pls give me suggestion to solve this problem

  • diwakar saxena

    hello Sir,
    I want some suggestions to buy a new inverter (pure sine wave) for my home.
    Preferably 850VA. I am a resident of Uttar Pradesh. My friends suggest me to buy Mahindras Powerol inverter. As this is a new company I don’t find much reviews on the internet and form other people. My other query is, can I use Amaron Battery (150ah) with the same one. Please give me your kind suggestion that, should I bought Mahindra ups inverter or not……….reply me soon

    • Admin

      Dear diwakar,
      You can go for Mahindra Powerol Inverter with Amaron battery,

      This combination will serve you better. NO problem!

      • Praveen Bhati

        Never go for Amaron please. Never.
        It’s durable but not for high power cut areas.

  • Admin

    Dear Ranjan,
    3CFL = 45 watts approx
    2Fan = 160 watts approx
    1 LCD 32″ = 85 watts
    Total = 290 watts approx.

    ——————————————————-
    Back-up time of 100 AH Battery = 12 * 100 / 290
    = 4.13 Hrs backup approx.
    ———————————————————
    Above calculation is not accurate.

    If you use all this gadgets simultaneously, you would get only 3 hours backup, better you go for 150 ah battery for better backup.

  • Admin

    Dear Jubin,
    We strongly recommend 1500 va pure sine wave inverter for your load preference,

    As you suffer only 2 hours power shedding, we recommend to go with two 135 or 150 ah batteries.

    We recommend Exide Inva smart 150 ah battery which is most suitable for your conditions,

    Inva smart 150 exide has three years full warranty, it would cost around Rs.13500/-

    If you want to cut the cost, just go for Exide Invertor plus model 135ah battery, it comes around 10.5 K (single battery).
    ————————————————–
    For inverter,
    we recommend
    Sukam shiny 1500 va Inverter (double battery inverter)

    Sukam shiny would cost Rs.7500 to 8000 in local market, you can buy it for Rs.6600 online (cash on delivery)

    Sukam shiny has 7 years warranty on transformer and 2years warranty on other parts.

  • Admin

    Dear Kumar,
    We recommend
    Sukam shiny 850 va pure sine wave inverter – Rs.5000/- (online price with cash on delivery option)
    +
    150 ah Exide Inva smart battery – Rs.13500/- (local market price)

  • Amish Sheth

    Dear Admin, Am glad to find your discussion and pointers. I am completely alien to home inverters but would like to share my requirements and a perfect advice from you. Please do try and reply soon as I need to complete the setup at home in about a week’s time.

    Requirement:
    3 Fans
    2 Tubelights
    1 CFL bulbs
    1 LCD TV

    Need the above to run for at least 7-8 hours straight. I am from Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra.

    Please define the solutions / options with Brand Names, approximate cost involved and warranty details (if possible).

    My budget is between 15K – 20K INR.

    Please help!

    • Admin

      Dear Amish,
      An 850VA Pure sine wave inverter with 150 ah battery will suffice for your load preference.

      we recommend

      Sukam shiny 850va pure sine wave single battery inverter – Rs.4500/-
      +
      Exide IT500 a50 ah tall tubular – Rs.15k

  • Admin

    Dear Rajesh,
    For your load preference and back time requirement, we would like to recommend

    Luminous 875 va pure sine wave inverter – Rs.4700/-
    +
    Luminous ILTT 18048 (3 years full replacement warranty) – Rs.12,500/-

    This combo will serve you better and last long!

  • Admin

    Dear Rahul,
    Without model name or number, we cannot come to a conclusion.

  • Admin

    Yes, But do you know, there are so many other points to notice to choose the best inverter.

    The Modern day inverters are DSP based smart inverters.

    DSP- digital signal processor

    Do any one care about the processor used in the Inverter ?

    That’s the reason why we recommend some particular model inverters repeatedly.

    Obviously those models are more reliable because of the build quality of the PCB and components used in the inverter.

  • Admin

    Dear Jerin Jain,
    We recomend
    Luminous Eco Volt 900VA
    and
    Microtek UPS SEBz 850 VA inverter

  • Admin

  • Admin

    Dear Praveen,
    For your load preference, we recommend

    Inverter cost will be around Rs.5000/-

    For battery we recommend

    Exide Inva Master 150 ah tall tubular battery – Rs.12,000 approx.

  • Neeru Sharma

    First of all thanks for Providing Precious Information, God Bless you
    I live in an urbanized village in Delhi’s outskirts and we get power cuts often, and the requirement is
    3 Fans, 3 tube lights,
    one 55 inches LED 3D TV
    1 laptop
    I want the power back up for at least 10-12 hours
    Kindly suggest the best inverter and Battery for above requirements
    and one more thing Kindly let me know if we run only 1 fan and 1 tube light so in that case this recommended inverter and battery will provide the back for how many Hours.

    Waiting for your quick reply.

    Thanks and Regards
    N.Sharma

    • Admin

      Dear Neeru Sharma,
      We recommend Solar Hybrid inverter for your load preference and backup time requirement.

      If you need 10 to 12 hours backup, i am sure the battery will not get enough charge the support the load for long time.

      Here comes the solar panels, yes, if you add 250 or 400 watts solar panels to 1500 VA pure sine wave inverter connected with two 150 ah batteries, you can easily beat 12 hrs power cut and use all your preferred gadgets with out any interruption.

      ———————————-
      If you are not interested in solar, and want to go for conventional power backup setup, we recommend

      Exide 1450 VA pure sinewave double battery inverter
      +
      Two Exide Inva Master 150 AH short Tubular batteries

      Total cost will not exceed Rs.30,000/-

  • Admin

    Luminous eco volt 900 VA pure sinewave inverter is a good product, go for it!

    For battery we recommend

    Luminous 150 ah tall tubular ILTT18048

  • akuk

    do advise –
    for 2 computers and a laser printer : is Microtek 850 VA inverter and Amaron tubular 150 AH single battery sufficient

    • Admin

      Dear Akuk,
      For 2 Desktop PC’s with LCD monitor and a Laser Printer, we recommend

      1500 VA Pure sinewave Inverter with 150 ah battery.

      200 ah battery will be more compatible with 1500 VA Pure sinewave inverter.

      Not all companies are manufacturing 1500 VA single battery pure sinewave inverter.

      we recommend

      Exide Premium Pure sinewave 1450 VA Inverter (12v) (single battery model)

  • Admin

    Dear Binoy,
    you can get this configuration for Rs.18000/-

    It seems like your dealer quote is overpriced.

  • Admin

    Dear Anandhi,
    We recommend

    Luminous Ecovolt 900 va Pure sine wave inverter

    Hello sir,

    I am planning to buy inverter for home purpose, what i need to buy ,

    here power cut is 8-9 hours everyday

    my power load will be

    2 X fan

    led tv 32 inch

    1 X tubelight

    Can u kindly suggest me a inverter which can run everything i mention above and price details.

    • Admin

      Dear Murali,
      For your load preference i would recommend 900 VA pure sine
      wave inverter with 150 ah battery.

      But, for 8 to 9 hours power cut situation, a double battery 1450 va pure sine wave inverter would be more useful to handle the heavy power cuts.
      Our Recommendation,

      Exide Premium 24volt pure sine wave inverter + two 100 ah Exide Inva master tubular battery

      • Murali Athota

        ok thanks

      • Ismail

        Could you pls approve & reply to my earlier comment on this page? I desperately need ur advice.

        U suggest in the article that buying both inverter & battery from same manufacturer isn’t advisable whereas ur recent comments suggest otherwise(Exide inv with InvaMaster battery or Luminous inv with ILTT). Could u pls explain.

        • Admin

          Dear Ismail,
          Buying a reliable product like Microtek Inverter is always recommended, but if you want to buy Microtek’s Battery along with Microtek Inverter……better you could reconsider your decision.

          But, things have changed in recent years,

          Top inverter manufacturers like Sukam and Luminous are also making good reliable tubular batteries,

          In such case, you could choose same brand inverter and battery.

  • Venkatesh Ramadhas

    • Admin

      Dear Rahul,
      Price quote looks reasonable.

      But I would like to recommend Su-kam Falcon+ (1050VA) pure sine wave inverter for Exide IT500 battery.

      From our Lab reports, following two models are more advanced than Microtek 850VA

      Sukam Falcon+ and
      Luminous Ecovolt 900VA Pure sine wave inverter

      Particularly Sukam Falcon+ with automatic charge current adjusting function according to the battery temperature ensures long life for the tubular battery.

      Price of Sukam Falcon+ …….. Rs.6099/- (online Price)

      It is little bit expensive compared to 850 VA inverters, but it is worth it.

    Dear Admin
    Recently I applied for MNRE Solar Subsidy Scheme and the dealer gave me 2 Exide Solar Tubular 12V 120AH batteries + Exide Xtatic 850va Puresinewave Home UPS+Two Ritika Solar Panels + a 24V Ritika Charge Controller
    However I am having doubts if this inverter can support these 2 batteries when I asked the dealer he says trust me I have given you the best choice
    Plz advise on what will be the best Inverter for this configuration

    • Admin

      Dear Aamir,
      I would accept Exide as the best battery for solar applications,
      but i can’t accept the inverter model and solar charge controller brand which your dealer has provided. Lot more top quality models are available in the market.

  • Romeo Ishere

    Greetings Admin,

    Excellent discussion for laymen!!

    I live in bangalore where I face rare power cuts ranging between 30mins to max 90mins (This would be max of 8Hrs/Month). This is for my office where I need the back-up for the following things:

    1) 15 CFLs (1nos 28Watts, 10nos – 15Watts each & 4nos – 5Watts each)

    2) 24inch LED Tv

    3) Sony HDR Video Camera

    4) 2nos Fans

    5) Wifi Router

    I was thinking to order the APC-850VA Inverter from APC website which would cost me 14750/-. This includes BI850SINE Unit, 130AH VIA Tubular Battery and the HDPE Export Trolley. Please advice if this would suffice my requirement.

    Thanking you in advance!!

    Dear Rahul Garg,
    Your choice is good, but one suggestion, try to buy sukam falcon plus 1100 Va inverter instead of 1050 VA.

    1050 VA model doesn’t have dip switch to select charge current for smaller batteries.

    Your battery choice is also good.

        Hello,

        While I was calculating it Su-Kam site, I got 1600VA recommendation. Can I look at Su-Kam Falcon Plus 1600VA with Luminous Red Charge 150AH Tall tubular battery?

        Can Su-Kam UPS with other brand battery would be fine? or Suggest equivalent battery to suite 1600VA Su-Kam Falcon Plus.

        Thanks.

        • Admin

          Dear Srikanth,
          Don’t waste your money.
          1100 va pure sinewave is enough for your load preference.

          That automatic load calculator is a crap.

  • Admin

    Dear Rahul Sharma,
    We recommend Luminous zelio 1100 VA inverter (price- Rs.5200)for your requirement. It charges your battery quickly with high charge current. Falcon Plus also do this quick charging job, but it is expensive(Rs.6100) compared to zelio.

    For Battery, we recommend

    and

    Dear Dinesh,

    +
    Exide Inva master IM10000 tall tubular 150 ah battery

    Falcon Plus brilliantly handles power fluctuation .

  • Admin

    Yes, you can. But the charging time will be little longer. As long as you don’t face any intermittent power cuts, it is okay to use 200 ah batteries.

  • Admin

    Dear Dinesh,
    Better you choose luminous zelio 900 Va inverter instead of Falcon plus 700 , prices are almost same.

    Luminious zelio is equally good as Falcon plus.

    • Dinesh Kumar

      Once again thanks admin , luminous zelio 900 Va inverter alolng wit this can i go with LUMINOUS ILTT 18048 150AH TALL TUBULAR BATTERY or Exide Inva master IM10000 tall tubular 150 ah battery

    Dear Dinesh,
    If Luminious zelio 900 va is not available in your area, then it would be better to choose

  • Thomas

    Sir i want to buy ups
    Which is best Luminous Zelio 1100 or Sukam falcon HBU

    • Admin

      Dear Thomas,
      We recommend luminous zelio 1100.

      • Thomas

        I saw sukam website
        Sukam falcon HBU have 4star energy efficient technology to reduce EB bill.
        What is the disadvantage in falcon HBU compare to luminus zelio 1100

        • Admin

          Dear Thomas,
          Falcon HBU is a High frequency transformer less technology
          inverter, which is in beta level.

          We need to wait one more year to confirm its reliability and longevity

          • Admin

            Dear Thomas,
            Sukam makes best in class inverters, but their batteries are not so popular. We can not compare sukam batteries with Exide.

            Exide IT 500 is a premium tall tubular battery which is best seller and expensive one in premium tall tubular segment.

  • Johnson

    • Admin

      Dear Khurshid,
      When you choose to buy premium tubular battery like Exide IT500, we always recommend to buy premium inverters like Su Kam Falcon plus 1100 Va or Luminous zelio 1100 Va.

      • Khurshid Alam

        Is Exide IT500 150AH Battery compatible with 1100VA inverter?

        Is Exide IT500 150AH Battery + 1100VA Inverter sufficient for 5Nos ceilling FAN & 5Nos CFL Lamp?

        Should I go for Exide IT750 200AH battery+ 1100VA Inverter ?

        • Admin

          Dear Khurshid,
          1100 Va inverter is sufficient to handle your load.

          Exide IT 500 is 100 % compatible with 1100 Va inverters.

          Choosing between 150 Ah and 200 Ah battery.

          If you need to use all your fans and lights concurrently during power cuts, better you go for 200 Ah battery with 1100 Va inverter for better battery back up and battery life.

          • Khurshid Alam

            Dear sir,
            You have suggested to purchase Su Kam Falcon plus 1100 Va or Luminous zelio 1100 Va with 150AH to 200AH Battery for 5Nos FAN & 5Nos CFL. But I am getting 900VA instead of 1100VA. Could you please confirm the availability of 1100VA capacity in Su Kam Falcon plus series or Luminous zelio series.
