Few days ago, a deal was posted here regarding inverters.
I own a hospital & stay in it. I primarily need inverter bcoz my baby boy starts crying whenever there is power cut. I stay in area where there is power cut of 15-30 minutes duration every day, sometimes extending upto 12 hours at stretch. So I needed 3CFLs, fan, 2 tubes & 3 mosquito repellent machines and if needed a wifi modem to run on it. I was suggested Exide 850VA Home UPS.

But then I thought to step up budget & to have a more “powerful” model to be future-safe, as diesel generator consumes a lot of fuel & it’s not economical to run it every time power goes off. So some of the CFLs of hospital can be connected to inverter & requirement might increase in future. I went through snapdeal link & came across following model.

It is 12V model & one website mentions that it runs on 150AH single battery, providing good battery backup. Exide also sells 24V model which requires 2 Batteries & I think setup might be out of my budget.
I opted for exide as it is well known brand, has pure sine wave output, has many features that competitors don’t offer & reviews of 850VA model are good.
My queries are
1. Has anyone used the same or any exide model to post the experience?
2. What will be the cost of 150AH single battery in market (brick & mortar stores)?
3. I won’t mind alternative good suggestions.

u get 150ah batteries from 8k to 15k depending depending on the type / brand.

suggest you check microtek / luminous setups as well.

Another important factor to consider when buying – support. I would suggest you to buy from a local supplier who can come & help when something goes wrong.

Calculate the battery capacity needed based on the # of lights/fans etc ‘s wattage, it’s usage and number of days backup you hope to require.

save and buy the 24v model which can take far more load and longer backup. you can save a lot by switching to led strip lights where 15w gives same light as a 40w Tubelight.

the real drainer are fans buyer the smaller motor 5star rating fans. you will not have to switch on the Genet.

route the Genet to power the inverter and inverter to your main circuit.

if you have an OT use a separate inverter for it.

if you can stretch your budget you can get inverter to power your a/c in the OT

thats true buddy,

Tube light – switch to T5 LED tubelight, it saves more than half
Fan – superfan or BLDC fan, 35w
