Top Tips For Buyers Looking To Purchase Inverter And Save Money In The Process

Top Tips For Buyers Looking To Purchase Inverter And Save Money In The Process We will discuss the parameters in this article.

The ability to choose different battery sizes is a crucial and must-have function for any UPS.

The advanced Inverter/UPS by Su-vastika includes a battery selection capability that gives customers the advantage of choosing the battery size needed for Inverter/UPS installation.

Let’s use Dimple as an example to understand it better.




Her region has power outages almost every day lasting three hours or longer. Therefore, she requires a battery with a capacity of 230 AH, the largest size on the market. Thanks to it, she can now have a daily backup for three hours.

But what will happen if, in three years, the electricity situation in her area changes and power outages now last only one to fifteen minutes?

Since the Inverter/UPS has a large charger and small batteries cannot be charged with that charger, Dimple is currently unable to modify the battery size. If Dimple insists on using a smaller battery, charging it with that bulky old charger will only result in the battery swelling.

Since the charging current is pre-determined for different sizes of batteries in the case of Tubular Lead Acid batteries, if Dimply is using a 50Ah battery, she would require 5 to 6 Amp charging to charge the battery of that size sufficiently.

Here are a few scenarios she might have to deal with depending on the option she chooses:

  1. She can only use a 5-amp charger, so that the charging time will be longer.
  2. She can raise the charging current to speed up charging, but the battery life will suffer.
  3. The period between water toppings will be shorter if the battery is a tubular lead acid.

If water topping is performed once every six months, then watering every three months on average will be necessary. However, it will increase the wear and tear of the battery’s plates, thus, shortening the battery’s lifespan.

As you should have realized by now, the correct battery charging current is necessary for various battery sizes in Lead Acid batteries, whether it’s a VRLA tubular, Gel, or any other type of Lead Acid battery.

This is why Su-vastika has created an Inverter/UPS with a functionality that allows users like Dimple to alter the UPS’s charging current and make selections according to the size of the battery using a button at the back to solve this issue.

This feature will also enable her vendors to offer their customers like Dimple various options based on their budget and the needs of their area and client by using this capability to choose the appropriate battery size.

Since the price of the battery is significantly greater than that of the UPS, the price of the entire system is determined by the size of the battery. And because the dealer is compelled to sell the bigger Ah battery to the customer, the price of the entire system is excessively high.

Take the Delhi region as an example, where the necessity for a backup inverter/UPS is currently only 10 to 15 minutes, compared to 2 to 3 hours a few years ago. 

The Inverter/UPS installed at the customer’s location has a bigger charger fixed in Ampere, say 15 Amp, so if they put a small size of the battery, say 50 Ah, that will not be possible. As a result, when the customer wants to change the battery, the dealer and customer have no choice but to choose a smaller battery. 

If they choose to put in a 50Ah battery, the battery will run the risk of getting damaged due to a higher charging current. This means that the charging current requires 5 Amp, but since the Inverter/UPS is intended for 15 Amp, which is three times its requirement, the battery will be destroyed within the first months.

Su-vastika’s UPS provides various sizes of charging current. Like their Pure Sinewave with ATC  model, it starts with 2.5A, 5A, 10A, and 15A so that the smallest battery, 24 Ah to 230 Ah, can be easily installed. 

The price of the battery might range from Rs 2,500 to Rs 12,000, which can soon add up for typical users. Customers will finally be able to select the ideal battery based on their demands with Su-vastika UPS.

  1. […] The major challenge Solar Installers face when installing the Solar Storage solution, or Solar off-grid or Solar hybrid PCU system is how to match the Solar Panel Voltages and Battery Voltage in Solar Hybrid PCU and the right Charge controller, as all these things are interlinked. As of today, new panels of 550Watt capacity are launched in the market where the per watt cost is lower than the other solar panels available, so the installer is very much fascinated by the price and wants to use these panels. But before doing this, one has to understand the basics of battery Voltage matching with the Solar Panel Voltages. As Solar panels are being made for higher wattages, the solar panel voltage is also increasing as the number of cells increases in any given Solar Panel. So nowadays, the 550 Watt solar panels have approximately 48 Volts as the VOC, which is way higher than the 330 Watt panel, which was close to 33 to 38 Volts. So using these 48v VOC panels in a 24v system will create a lot of challenges. Still, one has to understand that rather than using the 24V system, one can shift to a 36V Solar System, which will be ideal for designs, rather than trying to fit this panel in a 24 Volt System, which will give you the same output or nearby output of 330Watt panel, when the Solar panel manufacturer increasing the wattage in a single solar panel than he has two options to use the cells with higher wattage or increase the no of cells to make it a single solar panel with higher wattage. When we talk of mono or crystalline solar panels, the difference is the quality of cells used to make the panel. So if higher efficiency cells are used, we need to make the wattage higher without changing the voltage of the solar panel. But if the solar panel is made with the same normal cells, then the voltage of the solar panels will also increase as the no of cells is increased to make the higher wattage solar panel, which is not understood by the installer at times.… […]
