Reasons to Buy Exide Tube Master Tall Tubular Battery

Exide Tube Master, One more affordable tall tubular battery model from battery manufacturing giant Exide has been recently unveiled.

Nowadays people are more aware about benefits of buying branded batteries for their UPS/inverter systems.

Few years ago, consumers have no many choices when choosing branded tall tubular batteries. But now the trend has been changing slowly because of Exide’s launch of low cost tall tubular battery models.

Price Comparison of Exide Tube Master with Exide IT500 and Exide Inva Master Tall tubular battery models

Exide’s IT500 Tall tubular 150 ah battery continues to be the no.1 tall tubular battery in the market with its exceptional performance, durability and longevity.

But the price point of Exide IT500 is something hard to digest for middle class people.

Exide IT500 costs around Rs.14500 to 15500/-, which is not affordable for so many middle class Indian Families.


But they still want to go for a battery from a premium manufacturer like Exide. For such people who want to stick with Exide and want to buy some low cost tall tubular battery, Exide has announced ‘Exide Inva Master’ model in different variants to suit the requirement of different people.

Price Point of Exide Inva Master IM10000 Tall tubular 150 ah battery gives a heavy competition to other low cost battery manufactures in the market.

Exide Inva Master IM10000 Tall tubular 150 ah battery costs around Rs.11,000 to 12500/-


Exide Tube Master, newly launched 150 ah tall tubular battery model costs only Rs.9500 to 10,500/-

From the end user’s point of view, it is definitely a good deal. Even some non-tubular battery models from Exide itself costs much more than Exide Tube Master Battery.


Price Point of Exide Tube Master TM500 – a round up!

Price of Exide IT500 Tall tubular battery with 36 months replacement warranty – Rs.14500 to 15500/-

Price of Exide Inva master IM10000 Tall tubular battery with 30 months replacement warranty – Rs.11000 to 12500/-

Points to remember before buying Exide Tube Master TM500

    Hi first of all great website with info,

    I want to buy Inverter and battery. I have found the load requirement would be around 850 VA. I have only 14″ vertical space to keep the battery. I saw in your post recommending SEBz over SWE2 but that was old suggestion still it hold true.

    One fellow suggested me Exide Tubular -Inva
    Smart 150.

    Please suggest exact combination of Exide and Microtek
    Planning to run Grinder,LED TV (40″), 3 Tube and 3 Fans

      Dear Hemant,
      You can operate your Kitchen Mixie with Inverter above
      It is not recommended to use wet grinder with normal home inverter.

      Otherwise, for your load preference we would like to recommend

      Sukam shiny 850 VA Pure sine wave – Rs.4000/- Online price
      *Exide Inva Master IM10000* Tall tubular Battery 150 AH (*30 months* replacement warranty)- *Rs.11000 to 12,500 *


      *Exide Tube Master* TM500 Tall tubular (18 months replacement warranty) – Rs.9500 to 10,500

      Sukam shiny has 7 years warranty on transformer, and 2 years on other components, we recommend sukam shiny for it’s good performance and lowest price challenge in this segment.

      It is available for Rs.4000 online and Rs.4500 at dealers outlet.

      Check the price here

      • hemant bendale

        Thanks for quick update. I will drop running grinder on inverter.

        But I cannot have tall tubular battery. vertical space is 14″ only. Is Inva Smart 150AH correct for this. and what abt difference between

        SEBz and SWE2 Microtek inverters?

        • Admin

          Exide Inva Master short tubular also available in market.

          If you can’t find any dealer for that model then you can go for inva smart.

    Dear Nadeem,
    Luminous zelio 1100 va is better than eco volt, it costs around Rs.5200

    Exide Inva Master is mid range Tall tubular battery, best seller, Best fit for Bangalore power cut scenario. Price – Rs.11500 to 12750

    Exide Tube master and Lumionus Red charge battery models are entry level Tubular batteries which are less expensive than Inva master.

  • Admin

    Dear Ahutosh kumar,
    Exide IT 500 is premium tubular battery, better than inva master.

  • Madan Raghavan

    I bought TuberMaster TM500 2 batteries for 13k each. Did the dealer overcharge? I live in Pune.

    • Admin

      Yes, the price is not reasonable. It Should be around 11k.



    I am looking for small office inverter and batteries , My requirement is 2-3 servers with 650w usage and 2-3 router with 100w and 2 fans.Could you please suggest me the required inverter capacity. right now i am looking at sukam – 3.5KV with 48v. Is it fine if i go with 2 high end INVATUBULAR and 2 low end TUBEMASTER batteries.

  • Shreysa Chopra

    Hi – I am from Delhi, where over the period relatively electricity situation have improved. I need a replacement 150 Ah battery, can you suggest do i need to go with higher cost IT 500 or Invamaster or would Tubemaster suffice.

    Also my existing trolley wouldn’t be able to accommodate Tall type batteries, but if need be will upgrade that as well

    And third q – whats the relevance of Tall batteries. is the industry changing to tall for style or is there any scientific reason to choose that

    • Admin

      Hi Shreysa chopra,
      If the power cut scenario is not so severe in your location, then we would recommend
      Exide Tube Master Tall 150 Ah Battery – Rs.10,000 to 10,500
      Exide Inva Master Tall 150 Ah battery – Rs. 13000

      • Shreysa Chopra

        Thx for prompt reply but queries still persist

        1) Can i take Exide
        Inva Master short tubular as my trolley would not accommodate tall type. OR would you recommend only Tall Tubular?

        2) whats the craze around Tall Tubular. As in whats the benefit

        • Admin

          Dear Shreshya chopra,
          You can go for short tubular inva master which is equally good as
          tall tubular.

          Tall tubular batteries have some extra volume of acid which eliminates the need for frequent distilled water toppings . Easy to fit into narrow spaces.
