Hi guys,
So I'm considering getting in on Alternative Energy via Inverters. Has anyone used Li-ion batteries instead of Lead acid batteries?

WE USED TO BE A DISTRIBUTOR OF LION BATTERIES SOMETIME AGO. It is a good product & worth a trial.
Goodluck

YOUR BATTERIES ARE PROBABLLY TOAST!.
you may load test them to be sure, 24v or 12v system?..the okaya i believe are sealed mf battery?.
1yr is too short for battery to fail, are the batts brand new?
something is wrong..you need a pro to review your set up..
contact yopur installer...what is he saying.......

are you technical?
what load do you have on the system, how many batteries, series or parallel connection?
do you allow the batteries run down often...etc.
you need to answer all these questions b4 we can help u.

wow, all this load on 2 x 12v 200ah battery?!!!!.
you overloaded the battries...thats why they failed prematurely, batteries last longer if you dont drain them below 30% dod [depth of dischARGE], by the time the inverter starts beeping, its already too late, as the draw is below 30% dod.
if you still want to continue using inverters and hv the batts last longer...you need to do a load analysis & optimization

for eg 2 x 12v 200ah batt contains 4800wh
assuming 90% efficeincy this leaves you with 4320wh or 4300wh approx
@ 50% dod = 2150wh.
for ease of calculation lets assume 2000wh
so u can only power a
200w load for 10hrs
400w load for 5hrs
100w load for 20hrs etc

the load u listed is way above 400w
36'' tv shud be about 80watts, if led, n 180watts if lcd...and you have 2
washing machine is between 400w to 1000w
fridge is between 80w to 140w depending on size
laptop is 65w
fan is 80w
light bulbs...u didnt state..

thus you can see that u severly overloaded the system leading to its sudden and premature failure

, so what do I do?
Re: Inverter Users : Lets Have Your Experience by earthrealm(m): 5:21pm On Sep 11
Adaowerri111:
, so what do I do?

said it before..get a pro near you to help you.do an energy audit
if you cant get a pro..
u can list all the loads you power the inverter with, and state how many hours on the average you power them.
also confirm on the average how many hrs of phcn you get daily.

eg freezer 140w...runs for 6hrs daily etc do same for all the loads in ur house
confirm the exact specs of your inverter and charging current if known eg 24v 2.5kva sukam inverter etc.

am almost certain your present btteries are dead, and you would hv to discard/sell them off soon
you have to reduce your load and or increase your battery bank to 4 or more...if u want ur new /future batteries to perform any better

Okay sir, thank you.... I noticed without the freezer(with one tv and bulbs it goes for atleast 6hours, does that mean one of the batteries is still good?

You Said it all... The said system was abused which lead to its premature failure ! He might need new set of batteries (2/4 units) , proper load isolation and energy efficient gadgets.. Most of us have our mobile number readily available online to reduce regrettable mistakes .. Cheers !

i dont know, cant tell from here.
you need to hv the batt load tested to check the health of the battery bank
@kiekie1 is 1 of the pros and sellers.. depending on ur location, he might be able to help.

u can start by reducing the load on the inverter to not exceed 250w at any time, do this for a wk or two and observe if there would be an improvement.

i repeat for the last time, you need some1 knowledagble to come around and audit your setup...........there is nt much i can do from the internet, there are many knowledagble installers on nairaland...simply search

You can use a 150ah Deep Cycle Battery, 12v 500 watts inverter with intelligent 20a battery charger. This will give you 6 - 8 hours with 200 watts continuous load.

AFFORDABLE INVERTERS!!!

5 REASONS WHY YOU MUST OWN AN INVERTER (FUELESS & NOISELESS POWER GEN.) IN NIGERIA

• With the high cost of PHCN bill, an Inverter will help you to store energy for later use so that you can maximize your PHCN power expenditure.

• With the stress in Nigeria, you can not afford not to sleep well at night with light and fan. If PHCN power is not in supply, you can switch to inverter. Don’t join those who risk using noisy and smoky power generator overnight. They are hazardous, disturbing and very dangerous! Inverter is noiseless, fueless, smokeless and not dangerous.

• The savings made in terms of fuel and maintenance when you compare inverter use to that of power generator is very huge! With the ever sky rocketing cost of fuel and maintenance stress, you can imagine how much you will be saving.

• The money you spend in fuelling your gen. on a daily basis for 1 year is enough to buy our complete inverter solution (inverter + battery) of which the battery can last you for up to 5 years!

• By using inverter at home/office, you will be helping to reduce the gas toxins being generated by power generator users in Nigeria. Many epidemic air borne diseases can then be minimized.

OWNING AN INVERTER IN NIGERIA IS THE WISEST THING TO DO. YOU DESERVE
THE BEST, GO FOR IT NOW!

WE CAN SUPPLY YOU OUR 2.0 KVA INVERTER + BATTERY CHARGER AT A GIVE AWAY PRICE SPLASH OF N34,950 ONLY. WE WILL ADVISE YOU ON THE BEST TYPE OF BATTERY TO BUY. TO SAVE YOU A LOT OF MONEY, WE HAVE RE-ENGINEERED THIS 2.0 KVA INVERTER MODEL TO RUN ON ONLY 1 BATTERY ( 200 AH MODEL, DEEP CYCLE )

A 2.4 kva Modified Sine Wave inverter with two 200ah Deep Cycle Batteries will run for 10 hours or more at 400 watts continues load, if your total wattage is lower it will run longer, if it is higher the time will be less. The total cost for the 2.4Kva Complete Inverter is N269,000 all inclusive.
