Ur budget would determine the quality of goods u'd get. Secondly, how long are you looking at powering ur 300w load?

I need just 6hrs of inverter light

Get a 1kva pure sine wave inverter : 40 - 55k depending on model and brand.
Then a good 100ah VRLA battery (not gel): 35 - 50k depending on model and brand.
Get a good electrician to set up the connection and u're good to go.

Since u want Jumia links, that might come tomorrow but Wilmaria14 might assist with available brands and prices at alaba..... Cheers

100ah battery for 300watts load for six hours? That's incredible

300w is the max he'll be doing all things being equal. It's almost infered that he won't do 100w at any point in time as experience has thought that most of us cannot calculate the true consumption of appliances, so came about the suggestion.

But if you feel differently, it's an open channel why not share your ideas and let us all learn in the process grin

If you have the cash, go for 2 200ah batteries, 1.5kva 24v inverter, or top grade 200ah battery with a 12v 1kva inverter, but your single 200ah battery may not last past two years if you keep cycling it daily with that load

Even if he will be doing 100watts at a given time, a 200ah battery is still his best bet, most of the 100ah batteries in the market are not rugged like their 200ah counterparts

I don't think is right to say people should not advertise on this thread
If not for these adverts people like us will not know wilmaria14 and kikie
Alot of people are here not just learn but to find out where they can get cheap inverters
And i must confess these guys have been a blessing here especially to those outside lagos
Pls if you have cheap and reliable stuff you want to sell bring them on
But don't litter the thread with adverts
Thanks

@ Ceejay , saintace and other gurus my car battery is up, before nepa took light at around 3am this morning I checked the pulse repair charger it was at 14.5V, 0.7A , this morning I just put battery back in the car and low and behold it started the car, though battery has been down for about 3 weeks now, by the time I measured the voltage yesterday before plugging it to the charger, it measured just 5.2V
Ceejay thank you for this thread and for digging out the pulse repair charger

Of course, it's always advisable to connect pulse chargers from the first day of installing a new battery as it would help with the longevity of ur batteries.

I am not too accustomed to lifepo4 batteries but based on best practices I'll recommend the following: connect the 3 batteries to a busbar, all positives together and all negatives together and the u can connect ur Inverter cables, positive to positive and negative to negative.

The only draw back will be the charging as each battery will be charged individually with its charger as combining all the charging ports to one port would be cumbersome and dangerous.

Like I said this is my option and may not be the ideal, others who have better experience can chip in.......
