Just as a healthy mind regulates the functioning of a body, a compatible and efficient battery is required to operate an inverter. Now, these inverter batteries are available at different prices, properties, structures, chemical compositions, and sizes. A wide range of inverter batteries is available in the market.
In this article, we are going to explore a few types to understand the evolution of inverter batteries.
Different Types of Inverter Batteries
- Lead acid battery
The oldest and most commonly used lead-acid batteries are rechargeable and lightweight. They consist of two electrodes and an electrolyte. You have to regularly check and maintain the level of electrolytes by topping them with distilled water. Also, lead acid inverter batteries are an economical and reliable option.
- Tubular battery
Then came tubular batteries, which are best for you if you face frequent and long power cuts in your area. Although a tubular battery might occupy more space, it also gives longer power backup time with minimal maintenance required.
Tubular batteries are of two types:
- Short tubular inverter battery
As the name suggests, short tubular inverter batteries are short in height and wider in width. Moreover, they are portable and easy to store even if you have less space for storage.
- Tall tubular inverter battery
The tall tubular battery is comparatively taller and less in width than the former one. If space is not an issue for you, you can go for this type as it provides slightly more backup time due to its structure.
- Gel range battery
These inverter batteries come with a special gel criss-cross structure that helps to hold the acid. The gel prevents the acid from accumulating at the bottom, which further increases the backup time of the device. Gel inverter batteries also cause very low emissions of harmful gases, which makes them an environment-friendly option.
- Flat plate battery
Further, flat plate batteries came into existence. A flat plate inverter battery supports faster charging and requires fewer efforts, as frequent topping up is not required. It comes with a comparatively longer life and is cost-effective.
- Lithium-ion battery
This is an evolved type of inverter battery that has gained popularity in recent times. Lithium-ion batteries use lithium ions for storing energy. These inverter batteries are extremely lightweight, reliable, and safe for sensitive appliances. Additionally, their compact size makes them easy to store and carry. They support 3X faster charging and have a longer lifespan.
Luminous provides a lithium-ion-based inverter called Li-On 1250 Inverter. It’s a sine wave inverter producing noiseless and smooth output. It comes with an Intelligent Battery Management System(BMS), ensuring optimal performance. On top of it, it is eco-friendly as it emits minimal harmful gases and is easy to recycle.
These are the battery types most commonly used for inverters for domestic purposes and work. However, if you’re looking for an efficient and budget-friendly inverter and battery, it is better to buy them together as a combo.
Luminous offers a wide variety of best-in-class inverters and inverter batteries. One such inverter is Optimus 1250 inverter which comes with an RC 18000 150Ah tubular battery. Moreover, it is a sine wave inverter that supports 1100VA and 12V capacity.
Additionally, it supports all types of batteries, including tubular, flat plate, SMF, etc. It is suitable for frequent power outages as it provides a longer backup time. A smart LCD display is also available to display the status of the battery, such as its percentage and charging time.
