This system is a quality battery backup that will last you 5-10 years. We use gel batteries instead of cheaper lead acid because they are maintenance free and safe to have inside your home.
It is a medium size backup and can run a 480w load for 2,5hrs to 50% discharge.
The system comes in a neat battery box with the battery and inverter already connected.
All you need to do is plug the unit into a wall socket with the cable and plug top provided and plug the required load into the meter on top. This will run a few appliances for the load shedding period should it not exceed 480W. When Eskom fails the system will automatically take over and resume to normal when the grid comes back on. You wont even notice as the TV will stay on. We also have built in surge protection on our changeover switch
We suggest you buy the Power monitor from us to make sure that you don’t use more than 480w or it won’t last the full 2.5 hrs. You can also look at the sticker on the back of the appliances to find out the rating and add them up. Only appliances that use continuous power should be calculated.
