Why so many square wave models from Luminous?
From the above list,
Only Luminous Zelio 900 VA, Luminous Eco volt inverter and Luminous Invincible inverter are Pure sine wave models,

So, Luminous Eco Volt and Zelio are the only option for people who want to opt in for Pure sine wave model inverter.
Though square wave models are successful and economic in India, Only Pure sine wave models are always recommended for sensitive electronic gadgets like desktop PC, Laptops, LCD and LED TV’s.
Though Luminous has introduced too many square wave models compared to sine wave models, we cannot ignore the innovative improvements in its ‘Eco Volt’ inverter model which is pure sine wave inverter packed so many improvements in battery charging and efficiency.
