The number is Volts x Capacity. From the part number, it looks like a 48V battery pack. So, the capacity would be 3360/48 = 70 Ah.

BTW buddy,

I think gopalnayak has covered off the explanation. It is VAH/V.

APC connects a 2 batteries in series (a 'string') then 2 strings in parallel to increase capacity. My 1.5KVA's external battery pack has 2 12V 9AH in series (a string of 24v) and 2 strings in parallel. Output would be 24v 18 AH. Therefore VAH would be 432.

With Amaron Quanta you should be safe. I just purchased a pair for my APC 1.5 KVA a few days back. It will be retired once the 2.2 KVA is installed.

BTW, I got my SUA2200 with integrated batteries an hour back. It weighs ~51 KGs (!!)

Cheers!

Question Re: Inverter Batteries

My 'prime' tubular batteries after 3 odd years of use seems to be conked out. I am using this on sukam smiley 1400VA pure sine wave inverter.

I have place for inverter n batteries under the staircase and it is well ventilated and also cut off from our living room. Please advice me on selecting replacement for these batteries.

Get Exide or Amco fully tubular. You will also get about 60 to 40 month warranty.

Was your prime battery fully tubular

Yes, i was told that it is a tubular battery. The label says the same. But AFAIK the prime is a local bangalore brand.

Any particular reason for choosing the Invared? Invareds are semi tubulars. IMO its best to go for full tubular battery such as EL range or InvaTubular from exide or amco tubulars, these last for a long time, the warranty itself is close to 5 years and can last upto 6-8 years.

Roughly tubular batteries cost 1.5 times the price of non-tubular batteries. But in turn you get a battery that lasts more than double the duration. Just keep in mind that the battery life is based upon a lot of parameters such as regular top ups, proper charging, load, power cut frequency, heat etc.

Ivatubular 11800 with exchange of same. warranty 3 +1 year.

Even i fell for that, i have bought about 18 Invared 400 batteries uptill now, thinking of them as proper tubular batteries. But these have some cheap tubular technology that does not compare to full tubular batteries. Invareds invariably have to be replaced after about 3 years.

Never knew that Invatubular is so closely priced. I now have a suspicion that even these are not full tubular batteries, but exide distinguishes these with Torr Tubular and Ironclad tubular technology monikers, shared with the top of the line EL and EL+ range of full tubular batteries. Need to find out.

Can any one suggest a power back-up / inverter for me based on the following requirements:
1. Power cut is 4 hours a day.
2. Need to run a Crompton Pedestal fan, tube light and a laptop.

Though you can get away with a 400VA inverter, I would advise you to get an 800 VA inverter with a 150 AH battery. The reason is

1. 800 VA will give you reserve power. Remember 800 VA is not 800 Watts but 800*.75 (PF) = 600 Watts.

2. The 150 AH battery will give you about 6-10 hours continuous back up. In case of frequent cuts over a short period, this ensures that the battery does not die due to limited recharge time

3. Properly looked after the above combination with your load will give you years of trouble free service.

I do not know which brands are available, but I have a Luminous inverter with Exide 150 AH battery, which is going fine for the past two years.

Default Re: Inverter Batteries

Hello,
I got a quote for the below specs:

Sukam 1.4KVA pure sine wave inverter (SMILEY model) = 8000
Exide tubular 120Ah batteries * 2 = 13500 * 2 = 27000

Total, the dealer is quoting 34.5K (and 36K with trolley).

Please let me know if this is a good deal or if I can get any other similar configuration for a better price...

Need to decide soon...
Thanks
