Exide Home UPS/inverter is the latest sensation in Indian Inverter market,
Sukam, Luminous and Microtek are the leading players in home inverter manufacturing sector, in spite of this heavy competition Exide still manages to sell their Home inverters throughout the country and their graph is going up steadily.
Why Exide Home UPS?
Exide Home UPS has some additional features that which we can’t find in Sukam shiny or Luminous.
Exide Home UPS is been improved by Exide R&D engineers to meet the international quality standards and assure long term trouble free performance. I should admit that Exide R&D has achieved their target as well.
Available in Three Different Range
Exide Home UPS Inverter is available in 650 VA, 850 VA and 1450 VA Range
650 and 850 are single battery inverters and 1450 VA inverter is 24 volt double battery system.
LCD display is very useful for a normal user to monitor the performance of both inverter and battery, all leading inverter models like ‘sukam shiny’, Luminous UPS Sine and Microtek UPS SEBz lacks this important feature. They just equipped with simple LED indicators to show the battery charging status and fault indications.
Unlike sukam, luminous and Microtek inverters, Exide Home UPS/inverter has LCD display which shows
Battery voltage level
Battery charge level
AC mains Input voltage
Connected Load in percentage
AC mains Fuse Blown
LCD display shows the battery voltage level and charge level, this feature is very useful during intermittent and long power cuts, we could know the remaining backup time with these readings.
So, the inverter won’t let you down abruptly during heavy power shedding’s.
It shows the connected load in % – so u could increase or limit your usage according to the power cut situation. Other leading inverters don’t have useful feature.
High Charging Current
Lack of high charging current is the major problem we face with most inverter brands during long power cuts in summers. Your inverter will be simply use less when you face power cuts like 15 hours/day.
Inverters with normal 10 amp charge current will not charge your 150 ah battery quickly during intermittent power cut scenario, so people often search for inverters with high charge current.
Installing Replacing your 80 or 100 ah battery with 150 or 200 ah battery with same inverter with 10 amp charge current will not help you solve the power cut problem during long power shedding like 15hrs/day.
You need a Inverter with high charging current like 15 amp in high charge mode
All other leading inverters have only 2 charge selection modes; Exide Home UPS has 3 charge selection modes for better charging according to the connected battery and power cut situation.
Exide UPS charge selection modes
Normal charging mode – (NC) – up to 10.5 amps
Enhanced charging mode – (EC) – up to 12.5 amps
High charging mode – (HC) – up to 14.5 amps
Use High charging mode only on long power cut situations.
Use Enhanced charging mode, if u face 2 to 3 hours power cut/day
Use Normal charging mode, if you face no power cuts or power cut below one hour per day.
Compatibility with Exide IT500 battery
Exide Home UPS/ inverter is highly compatible with most famous tall tubular battery model Exide IT500.
Exide Home Inverter’s High charge mode is very helpful to quick charge the IT500 battery during intermittent power cuts,
14.5 amps of charge current help the battery to get fully charged in very short period.
Only Pure sine wave inverters
Exide manufactures only Pure sine wave inverter models
But all other competitors like sukam, luminous and microtek are manufacturing both square wave and pure sine wave models.
Customers with little knowledge about inverters are often get cheated by inverter dealers with noisy square wave inverters.
No chance for such cheating with Exide UPS, Exide manufactures only Pure sine wave inverters and it list out all the disadvantages of square wave inverter in its official website itself.
Caution – This review is for Original Exide Inverter, not CEIL Exide Inverter
In the market two types of Exide Inverters are available, this review is for Original Exide Inverter, not for CEIL Exide inverter
The name CEIL Exide is printed in the front panel of inverter, this one is different from Exide Inverter
We didn’t mean CEIL Exide is a duplicate product, CEIL Exide inverter is like SF sonic, CEIL Exide batteries, a low cost solution for people those who like inexpensive branded products.
CEIL Exide inverter is a normal inverter for normal user, it doesn’t have the special features like Exide Inverter.
Exide Home UPS/inverter – Technical Specification
Price of Exide UPS/inverter were little high during the time of launch, but now the prices have come down and even available for prices lower than all other competitors.
Exide 850 VA inverter cost around Rs.4800 to 5500/- in local market
