Power drives the world today. Gone are the days when people could still survive without electricity, today it has become an essential part of our lives. As a result, the demand for inverter batteries has gone up. According to our research, the demand is increasing by three-four times on an average each year.
The problem with common people is that they know about the leading brands in India like Luminous, Microtek, and Sukam, but they are ignorant about the latest technology/ model and this makes them buy the older version which might become redundant in the future. It is like buying an iPhone, you will not want to buy iPhone 5S but the latest one, right?
People generally end up buying not necessarily the latest technology of inverter battery. In this article, we will try to educate the readers and buyers about the latest technology, so that they buy the most recent version of an inverter battery.
Since there is a constant demand for power 24*7, people are gradually shifting to solar technology, as its economics has improved and price has come down. It is making more sense to install a solar system at your home, office, shop etc. especially where power tariffs are high and grid connectivity is poor. So the latest version of an inverter battery that you should consider buying is the one which is “Solar Ready”. In other words, this inverter battery is capable of supporting a solar system, in case you decide to install your own solar system in the future. A “Solar ready” inverter battery will not have a solar panel, but will be compatible with a solar system.
This type of inverter battery has some advantages:
The top 10 inverter battery brands in India and the best selling products of the top three brands and their solar ready variants are:
मुझे इनवर्टर बैटरी की आवश्यकता थी और मैं अपने नजदीकी बाजार में इनवर्टर बैटरी को खरीदने गया वहां पर मैंने इसके रेट पता करें जो कि 12000 से 15000 Rs के बीच में थे दुकान वाला मेरे पहचान का था उसने मुझे कहा कि आने वाला जमाना सोलर का है तो आप इनवर्टर बैटरी सोलर वाला ले जाइए ताकि कल को आप इसे सोलर में आसानी से बदल सके.
Here is a checklist of few factors that you should consider before buying the right inverter and battery for your home -
i) Your Power requirement - It is important to know what is the total power requirement or which appliances will run at the time power failure. Simpler appliances like fan, lights have lesser power requirement when compared to a refrigerator or an AC.
ii) VA Rating of your inverter - VA of an inverter is its volt ampere rating. It is the power supplied by the inverter to the various appliances. Most inverters are 60%-80% efficient. In other words, their power factor is 0.6-0.8. The VA rating of the inverter is power required by your appliances divided by the power factor.
For example, if you need 550 watts power and average efficiency of the inverter is 70%, the VA rating you are looking at should be (550/0.7) or 785 VA. In the market 800 VA inverters are available, which will be suitable for you.
iii) Battery support - In order to know the capacity of the battery, you need to divide the total power requirement by the battery voltage (in Volts).
For example, your power requirement is 550 watts and you need it for 4 hours with a battery of 12 V, the battery size will be (550*4/ 12) = 183 Ah.
Once you know the size of the system, your job is half done. You can easily buy these sets from leading online websites like Loom Solar. Here you can get the inverters of your choice and size. Some of the most popular selling brands are Luminous, Microtek and Sukam in India.
