Top 3 Tubular Inverter Batteries and Prices

Preparing a top list is always a hard task to accomplish, anyways, we have prepared one for the sake of our visitors who were in hurry burry to buy a best inverter battery immediately and who have no time to sit back and read our blog leisurely.

Writing an article like this seems like a simple task, but the truth is, it is a herculean task. Only those who follow the battery sales and performance trend for a very long time could confidently write such a post. I hope I can make it.

Let’s come to the topic

While preparing for this topic, I have decided to split this post in to two sections, namely

Top 3 non-tubular Inverter Batteries in India

  • Jis

    I am living here in Trivandrum, Kerala. I am going to buy Luminous Eco Volt 900 VA Sine wave Inverter + Amaron Current CRTT 150 AH Tall Tubular Battery + Battery Trolley. I got least quotation amount of Rs.20,000/- including installation.

    What is your openion

    • Admin

      Dear Jis,
      The price quote is normal, we recommend you to ask for 1000 rupees discount.

    • JK

      dear jis

      How abt the service & maintenance, do u inquired with any one who using the same..if provide the delaer no & email

  • Chubub

    Kindly tell us about the quality of Exide TM 500 Tall Tubular Model of Exide. My dealer is providing this Model for my HOME Use.Is it different from Exide IT-500 Tall Tubular ?

  • nasrullakhan

    hey ravi,
    Heard that Tall tubular consumes more current to charge than a flat it true?

    • Admin

      Ha ha ………it’s a Hoax !

  • Raj boori

    Dear admin,

    I want to purchase an
    inverter. After reading your articles I decide to buy following-

    amaron current CRTT 150ah + su-kam shiny 900 va

    (my preference was 1100 va as my expected load is -1 old CRT
    21’ tv(160 watt) + 1 non hd settop box(? Watt) + 1 air cooler(270 watt) + 1
    fan(80 watt) + 1 laptop(60 watt) + modem(20 watt) + 3 tube light(120 watt) + mobile
    charger (? Watt) = approx 750 watt – it is my home max load but I will not run
    all these for long as I will purchase only single battery due to limited budget
    and power cut is avg 4 hrs in my city, but this model is not available).

    But both forecast
    battery and inverter is difficult to find in my town ( newai 70km distance from
    jaipur, rajasthan). On searching vigoursly I found both CRTT 150 ah at 13200 rs + sukum
    shiny 900 va at 5800 rs whitch is little bit higher for my budget. I also come
    to know that after sale service of both amaron and sukum is not good in my town.
    Only luminous and microteck is better in after sell service aspect. Thus I made
    a second choice-

    luminous ILTT 18048 +
    luminous ecovolt 1050/900 va.

    I fond ILTT 18048 at 12500 rs but ecovolt does not as it is
    not available. Only zelio 900 va available in sine wave, but I am doubt full
    about it as it has lcd (what happen if icd become bad after warranty period, unable
    to see anything). Please correct my doubt. Or I should go for micriteck e2+ or
    eb series. Dealer advise me for luminous LE 578TT 155 ah battery but I am unaware
    about this battery.

    I also find amaron current CRTT 150ah + amaron shine wave
    inverter 900 va at 13000 + 5000 rs respectively which is in my budget but after
    sell service is also a question for me. Kindly suggest me a right choice as
    soon as possible.


    • Admin

      Dear Rajboori,
      You did a market research already.

      We understand your situation.

      We recommend luminous ILTT 18048 +
      luminous zelio inverter.

      Amaron battery+inverter is also a good combo. But battery price seems little expensive in your town.

      • Raj boori

        Thanks admin

        I am really thankful for your quick response. You made my
        choice easier. Some more question to
        just enhance my knowledge.

        1. Any disadvantage if we use higher va inverter (eg. 1100va
        +150 ah battery) with low watt use like >300 watt?

        2. better inverter between luminous eco volt and zelio with
        their superiority aspects.

        3. better battery between luminous ILTT 18048 and LE 578TT with
        their superiority aspects. Because I unable to differenciate them with their
        description on their site or net. Actually official site don’t mention luminous
        LE 578TT model !

        • Admin

          Dear RajBoori,
          Actually, installing higher capacity inverter and battery than your actual load requirement will increase your battery life. No disadvantages.
          Luminous eco volt is good seller.
          luminous ILTT 18048 tall tubular battery is a classic model with high reliability.

          • Raj boori

            Dear admin

            Thanks a lot again for your kind help. It is really a good informative
            site with a great helping expert like you. It is very helpful for ignorant people like me.

    • Admin

      Dear Raj,
      We recommend

      sukam shiny 1500 VA inverter (double battery Inverter)
      200 AH Inverter Battery – 2 No.s

      This will suffice!

  • ruban pushparaj

    Amaron batteries not available in tirunelveli, tamilnad

  • shan

    hii RAvi,

    I’m really, i need your valuable advice. Should i go for exide inva master battery (36 month guarantee) or amaron (46 months guarantee) ??

    and also which is the best inverter(1050) currently inthe market ?

    thanks in advance

    • Admin

      Dear Shan,
      We recommend Exide Inva master IM10000 150 ah tall tubular
      battery. Affordable and best seller of its class. Cost around Rs.12500
      In 1050 VA Pure sine wave inverter segment, we recommend Sukam Falcon Plus inverter, best in class inverter with 7 year warranty on transformer and 2 year warranty on other components.

      It senses the temperature of battery and adjusts the battery charge current accordingly to prolong battery life. It has no lcd display, that is the one disadvantage we found in this model. Otherwise, it is best in terms of performance.

      • shan

        Dear admin, how about longevity Does IM 10000 Lasts same or that amaron ??

        Unfortunately, could not find any dealer who sell sukam in my town. please advice other inverter brands. here luminious,microteck,vguard,exide are availble.


        • Admin

          If sukam falcon plus is not available in your area, better you opt in for Luminous zelio 900 VA pure sine wave inverter with LCD display.

  • Admin

    Dear Deepak,
    If you want an inverter with good service network, we would recommend Sukam, Luminous and Microtek. Amaron is good, you can go for it if doorstep service is available in your area.

    For your requirement, we recommend

    Luminous zelio 900VA inverter with LCD display – Rs.4690/- online

    check the price here

    For Battery, we recommend

    Exide Tube master TM500 150 ah tall tubular battery- Rs.10500 to 11000

    Best budget battery in tubular range. 18+18 months warranty. Life expectancy 4+ years

  • aj

  • Pankaj Gurumukhi

    I have been speaking with a dealer here in Pune for battery for my 3bhk home, and he has been recommending me Exide EL Master battery for 13K. I was reviewing EL Master, and it seems to be the battery listed in Exide site for Industrial use. I am slightly confused, as I don’t find mention of EL Master in any site, or recommendation thereof.

    Can you please help? Thanks… Pankaj

    • Admin

      Dear Pankaj,
      Exide EL master 150 Ah Tall tubular battery is sturdy and reliable battery with 3 years replacement warranty. Best for home and industrial use. You can go for it, no worries!

      Best price is 12k

      • Pankaj Gurumukhi

        Thanks so much. I have one more question – As the cost of battery varies a lot between different varieties of battery providers like Exide vs Luminous, I was wondering if it makes sense to spend a fixed amount to buy a higher AH battery like 180/200ah like Luminous ILTT instead of buying a lower AH battery like 150ah Exide battery? Basically I am thinking to get more AH for the money spent 🙂 Would appreciate your opinion. Thanks…

        • Admin

          200 Ah is definitely a better option for home use, most inverters like sukam falcon plus and luminous zelio manage the 200 Ah battery very well and we get extra back up with 200 Ah battery.

          If you are not a Exide Fan, you have many choice.

          Amaron, Luminous, Microtek and much more.
