What are inverter batteries?
These are battery packs(usually lead or lithium-based) coupled with an inverter to act as temporary power backup for home appliances during a power cut, to keep the supply uninterrupted.
Inverter batteries for your home and the factors you should consider before buying:
1. Your power supply needs:
The reason for buying the inverter for, it can be calculated by summing the wattage required by your appliance that are necessary for you during a power outage like fans, lights, personal computer, and television.
2. VA rating:
This is found by the ratio of power requirements in watts to the efficiency of the inverters. Ideally, the inverter should give 100% output but we all know that’s not possible in real-world conditions, hence the output of inverters is usually 60-70% which is called a Power Factor.
VA rating= total power required (sum of wattage required by each appliance) / power factor.
3. Battery capacity:
The most important factor to consider before buying your batteries. It’s the battery capacity that decides your backup hours and it is usually expressed in Ampere Hours (Ah). Most consumers are prone to scams inverter battery dealers because of not understanding this calculation.
Battery capacity = Power requirement (in watts) * Back up hours (in hrs) / Battery Voltage (in volts)
4. Warranty covers:
Inverters batteries even though they are durable and reliant, tend to loose their efficiency when they’re prone to rapid voltage fluctuations and frequent charging and discharging cycles. In cases like these, the warranty from the manufacturer will cover the refill or in some cases get replaced too.
