Luminous Inverter battery is fully discharged when I was away from home for three months.
I had switched off the main power and disconnected the inverter from output usage of TV , fans and lights while I was away.

Is there any way to get it back to work without consulting the technician?

The technician has taken the battery to his repair shop for recharge.

Not sure, whether he has done all these, but told me that the battery is not working after recharge with recharging equipment.

May be your battery life has ended. You can sell it like 2K~4K to battery wala or who buys dead batteries. A dead  branded batteries can worth Rs.3~4K.

This mini UPS seems to be interesting. I will do some research on it.

My friend brought it and it is working perfectly.

You hastes.

Now you are compelled to buy replacement from him.

He already knew it and tricked you.

Now get quotes from other shops and work out a better deal for yourself from him.

Looks like electricity goes off quite often when it’s dead in 4 years. So buy a new battery with longest warranty

I agree with you, but no choice for me at the current situation.

You can negotiate a little bit more. I sold my battery excide 150ah at Rs.2200 in 2009. Now the price has increased much more of inverter battery.

Along with the new battery buy halonex inverter bulbs. They have lithium ion battery inside.

In each room instal 1 bulb which is out of the inverter circuit.

That way you can prolong your inv. battery life from 4 years to 5 years and also have extended light.

So incase of extended 12 hour power cut instead of emergency torch you can use the inverter bulb in the house beyond the inverter battery power.

I used to use inverter but then after it died off installed these bulbs only since there is not needed due to good crosswind ventilation in the house.

I faced a similar situation. I went out for 2 months. I had plugged out the UPS charging cable and hence when I came back after 2 months, the battery was fully discharged. When I plugged in the UPS for charging, it’s fan was making a continuous knocking sound, and also the Luminous UPS display was not showing any estimated time for full charge.

Troubleshooting Technique Used :
1. I put the inverter for the charge for some time (about an hour).
2. Had to bear the irritating sound made by the fan. rage
3. After about an hour, I plugged off the UPS charge and plugged in again.
4. This time the UPS was taking charge and it started displaying the time left till full charge. Also, the fan sound was gone. After one day of usage, now my UPS + battery is back to normal. Aaah !! Thank God smile
