Please any where you see say I mention "cellotape", na mistake. I meant , "insulation tape".

The first thing you need to buy is 10A battery charger. That is what I use for my 200AH battery.
I buy my own battery charger from Jumia.

The next thing na battery.
Car battery, keke marwa battery, anyone.
But make sure it is sealed
I prefer you buy Gel batteries but these car batteries are more affordable by far than a GEL battery. At least for a start.

I no buy my 200AH from Jumia o, 'couldn't trust them with that.

I initially started with a keke marwa battery, 36AH, but menh e no dey reach me at all, just about 6hrs e don quench and na that time me just dey start.
I bought it N15k in October but people say them cheat me.

Buy 100AH Gel battery instead of car batteries if you get the money but the money no too dey.

Then look for cable wey resemble the one wey dey inside your UPS, wey dey connected to the battery inside ups.
Or simply go to any electrical shop and ask for 1.5mm flexible cable.

Off your ups.

Now, open your UPS,
Gently bring the battery outside make no wire cut o.

Look am, you go see say one wire na red and the other na black, wey them connect to the UPS battery.

Dicommect these wires from the UPS battery
But make sure say you know where you disconnect each wire from.
Write for cellotape gum am put if that is what will make you remember.

Extend the red wire and extend the black wire with the wire wey you buy from electrical store.
I buy one yard, come cut am into two.

What I mean is join wire to the black wire and cellotape the joining.
Join wire to the red wire and cellotape the joining.
The exact number of UPS wire wey them be connect to each of your UPS battery terminal, na im you must join to the extra wire o.

So connect the ends of the wire to the terminals of your big, newly bought battery, black wire to black terminal and red wire to red terminal


ALWAYS CONNECT NEGATIVE FIRST.
Negative na always black or blue.
Positive na always red sha.

Voila!
On your Ups.
Connect extention for the UPS socket connect your fan or bulb wey get plug to the extension.
(You can do it yourself).
Fan dey chop battery o, make sure say your fan and TV na energy saving fans.
Energy saving fans are usually 5watts and 10watts.
Your TV should be led TV.
This is especially small batteries, so that e go fit manage last.

Or you can do what I do, I use my 200ah strictly for light and charging phones.
6days, this thing never off.

I have rechargeable USB fan and USB fan wet dey serve me excellently when NEPA no dey.
But of course, you can plug what you already have to the new UPS-battery connection.

Light!
When NEPA come, use your battery charger charge the battery.

For small batteries always use the smallest charging option ( not fast charging so that your battery no go heat up instead of getting charged).

Too much info right?

I fit look for video show you.

If you no like this method, which is way cheaper, simply buy inverter and battery wey go allow you change over and all your house go get light.

No use UPS charge the bigger battery wey you wan connect o.

No buy battery before battery charger o.
Buy battery charger first other wise you may ruin your battery.

No destroy your UPS alarm o.
When all these your battery low whether na after 24hrs, e go still tell you say e Don dey low.
There is a way to dampen UPS beeping so that e go come dey low and quiet and e no go dey vex you again.

My battery charger get 12V option and 6V charging option. But most batteries are 12V. Do not ever bother and experiment with 6V button in your battery charger o.
As soon as you buy the battery charger. just push the button go 12V.
I kukuma use cellotape block the 6V side on my battery charger so that I no go use mistake push am go 6V.

Never discharge your battery below 20%.
The habit will elongate its lifespan.
You can Google for more tips on how to enlogate your battery life.


When charging your battery, and the voltage reading that is displayed on the battery charger screen starts decreasing, kindly stop charging the battery as it is full.
Otherwise your battery will begin to heat up, and that is not good for the battery.

Laptop dey chop battery o.
Between laptop and fridge, I no even know the one wey get power pass.

The bulb wey I dey connect to my UPS in the evening get plug and na 5w LED bulb. It is bright enough.
Wey NEPA come, the 40w LED bulb wey dey ceiling go on by im self.
I no want make anything drain my battery for nothing.

Ask me any question, even in Inverter and battery, I go answer you.

Una must buy FAN for una UPS o.
Not standing fan o.

I will attach pictures of different type of fan from Jumia.

I dey read manual o.
Any product wey I buy, I must read the manual, even if na Chinese ingrish them use write am, I go read and re-read and re-read until I understand wetin them dey talk.

God bless you. How do you connect two batteries

Make I try explain am first.

Now, we go name your two batteries A and B .

A: go be red which is positive.
B: go be black or blue which is negative.

(But the truth be say most batteries always get plus and minus sign crested on them if you look for am well well.)

Back to our discussion.
Now we have two siblings called A and B abi?
Okay.

Now, that 1.5mm flexible wire wey you buy from electrical shop, if e still remain, you o cut from inside.
If e din finish, you go need to go buy come

Cut from the wire.
Peel both end of the wire so reveal the wire only.

Make sure none of these batteries are connected to the UPS, disconnect them.

Now connect negative of battery A to the negative of battery B (not to positive o)
Black to black (or blue to blue)
- to -
Minus to minus


Also connect positive of battery A to the positive of battery B (not to negative o)
Red to red.
+ to +
Plus to plus

Now, listen o, you go come carry those two wires wey come out from your UPS,

Take the negative or black wire from the UPS,
Connect am to the negative of battery B.

Then,
Take the positive of the UPS wire connect am to the positive of Battery A


In essence, wetin you don do, if you do am correctly be say, your two wires from your UPS dey connected to two different battery, not the same battery.

Wetin I just describe them dey call am balanced parallel connection.
It ensures your battery stays in the 12V configuration while increasing the storage for your current.

So, attached is a picture.
If you understand wetin I write, you go understand the picture.

OGA BUY FAN FOR YOUR UPS. And I Dont mean standing fan o


In our case, using this picture, the +and - wey dey this picture so, go be the ones from the UPS,that is the red and black wires

Just put am on top the wires wey you just connect for your battery or battery terminals.

Abeg, you underatand?

When it is time to charge these two batteries, remove the UPSPS cables and out the battery charger's terminal exact same way you had put the UPS.

The red terminal (+) from the battery charger should enter into the positive of battery A and the negative terminal (-) from the battery charger should enter into negative terninal of battery B.

If done correctly,
The battery charger should be entering and leaving from two different batteries and not from one battery.

How much did your project cost you?

Make I give you my initial first time breakdown.

I get UPS before.
So
battery charger 7000
Battery, 36AH, 15000
Fan 2400
Cable 400
Total N24,800 initial cost

So with 25k, you are good to go.
But if you get the money to spare, abeg buy 100AH GEL battery instead. It costs....o boy the price don go up to 45k on Jumia o, na N32k for November I see before o.

So you are looking at 50k if you decide to go for this more expensive battery.

But if not, car battery dey work wella.

Anyways.


But I come upgrade to solar panel and 200AH gel battery.
200AH gel battery on Jumia as at November was still available from 85k.

But I no buy from them.

I buy another one wey I know of, at a much higher price.

1) The UPS wey I use was considered dead to me. So let me explain my own version of dead.
The UPS battery no good, but if light dey, and you plug the UPS e go come on.
But e no dey back up.

As far as your UPS still dey on, yo go fit use am.
Just remove the dead battery.

2) if you go Jumia, type 10A battery charger, you go see enough choice.
Now the reason wey make me recommend10A na because na jeje-jejely charging.

3)When charging your battery, and the voltage reading that is displayed on the battery charger screen starts decreasing, kindly stop charging the battery as it is full.

Okay I see. I dey find inverter, battery and solar panel wey go fit power simple household appliances like fan, light bulb, laptop and fridge. Wettin I suppose go for?

Okay, you know the power rating for your fridge?
Like if you check the label, usually at the back of the fridge,them dey write am as "input power".
Mine is 100watts.


But since I don't know the wattage of your fridge, I will advice you go for 2.5kw or 3kw inverter with 4 units of 12V 200ah battery.

But if the money too big, there are other affordable solutions like with 2 batteries instead of 4, but the fridge go dey quick finish the battery.

With two batteries, if your fridge na the same small power with my own, you can get a full 24hours before the battery run down.

But without the fridge connected, ahhh..just dey jolly dey go. Light forevergrin
You gat wharramin?grin

So you go unplug the fridge, except say NEPA dey quick quick give una light. So that you can recharge your 2 batteries quick quick before another outage.

Modified:
Oh! You said with solar. I just see that part.
Abeg wetin I describe ba inverter solution.
Try give me your fridge input power.
You go fit check am?

What I described there didn't include solar panels, is what I mean.

Yes, you can use UPS, batteries and solar panel alone. It is what I am using.
But in this case, instead of a change over, during a power outage, you will need to connect your devices from an extension box connected to the UPS. You understand?


So, for solar solution wey fridge na 100w, I go recommend you go for ATLEAST 2 units of 12V 200Ah batteries,
4 units of 330watts solar panels,
And 3kw Inverter.

Companies dey wey dey do this as a bundle. What I mean is them go give you battery, inverter, solar panel and installation material plus them go do the installation for you.

But you know say as solar panel don join this list, cost don go up sha?

Two types of popular power solution na:

I) Inverter solution (no solar panels, only inverter and battery)

2) Solar solution: solar panel, inverter, battery.

But if you notice, this is different from wetin I open the thread with.

My broda, that UPS own na for people wey use eye wey be like hawk follow their money o.
You want same result but you no wan spend same amount of money because different things for your life dey wey need that money.

If the money dey, solar, inverter and battery solution is always the most stresss free. This na the premium category.
It is also the best category for people wey NEPA dey give light once in a year or wey NEPA no dey give light at all.
For all device wey include fridge and you want solar, inverter and battery solution,
you are looking at 750k and above o.
Solar solutions comprising battery, Inveter and panels, of less than 750k dey o, but the inverter go be like 1kva, the battery go be one unit, the panels go be like two.

Inverter solution na for people wey Nepa dey give light.
If NEPA dey give una light for morning, cease am for night OR give una light through out the night, cease am for afternoon, this is the best solution. Why?
Because you go spend less (no solar panels) as well as have that change over feature installed while still being able to ensure your batteries are charged daily.

The people wey I buy battery from get different bundles, both of Inverter solutions and solar solutions, with all their prices attached for their website but e be like say them don close for Christmas.

There is a way to dampen UPS beeping so that e go come dey low and quiet and e no go dey vex you again.

My battery charger get 12V option and 6V charging option. But most batteries are 12V. Do not ever bother and experiment with 6V button in your battery charger o.
As soon as you buy the battery charger. just push the button go 12V.
I kukuma use cellotape block the 6V side on my battery charger so that I no go use mistake push am go 6V

Please any where you see say I mention "cellotape", na mistake. I meant , "insulation tape".

The first thing you need to buy is 10A battery charger. That is what I use for my 200AH battery.
I buy my own battery charger from Jumia.

The next thing na battery.
Car battery, keke marwa battery, anyone.
But make sure it is sealed
I prefer you buy Gel batteries but these car batteries are more affordable by far than a GEL battery. At least for a start.

I no buy my 200AH from Jumia o, 'couldn't trust them with that.

I initially started with a keke marwa battery, 36AH, but menh e no dey reach me at all, just about 6hrs e don quench and na that time me just dey start.
I bought it N15k in October but people say them cheat me.

Buy 100AH Gel battery instead of car batteries if you get the money but the money no too dey.

Then look for cable wey resemble the one wey dey inside your UPS, wey dey connected to the battery inside ups.
Or simply go to any electrical shop and ask for 1.5mm flexible cable.

Off your ups.

Now, open your UPS,
Gently bring the battery outside make no wire cut o.

Look am, you go see say one wire na red and the other na black, wey them connect to the UPS battery.

Dicommect these wires from the UPS battery
But make sure say you know where you disconnect each wire from.
Write for cellotape gum am put if that is what will make you remember.

Extend the red wire and extend the black wire with the wire wey you buy from electrical store.
I buy one yard, come cut am into two.

What I mean is join wire to the black wire and cellotape the joining.
Join wire to the red wire and cellotape the joining.
The exact number of UPS wire wey them be connect to each of your UPS battery terminal, na im you must join to the extra wire o.

So connect the ends of the wire to the terminals of your big, newly bought battery, black wire to black terminal and red wire to red terminal


ALWAYS CONNECT NEGATIVE FIRST.
Negative na always black or blue.
Positive na always red sha.

Voila!
On your Ups.
Connect extention for the UPS socket connect your fan or bulb wey get plug to the extension.
(You can do it yourself).
Fan dey chop battery o, make sure say your fan and TV na energy saving fans.
Energy saving fans are usually 5watts and 10watts.
Your TV should be led TV.
This is especially small batteries, so that e go fit manage last.

Or you can do what I do, I use my 200ah strictly for light and charging phones.
6days, this thing never off.

I have rechargeable USB fan and USB fan wet dey serve me excellently when NEPA no dey.
But of course, you can plug what you already have to the new UPS-battery connection.

Light!
When NEPA come, use your battery charger charge the battery.

For small batteries always use the smallest charging option ( not fast charging so that your battery no go heat up instead of getting charged).

Too much info right?

I fit look for video show you.

If you no like this method, which is way cheaper, simply buy inverter and battery wey go allow you change over and all your house go get light.

No use UPS charge the bigger battery wey you wan connect o.

No buy battery before battery charger o.
Buy battery charger first other wise you may ruin your battery.

No destroy your UPS alarm o.

Fans you can use

They range in price from N2,500 and above.

You go even fit plug am to the extension from your UPS, so that it is working and charging at the same time.
