UPS ?


Tropman

Recommended Posts

I have been asked by a non technical, non practical person to suggest a unit that would enable use of an LED TV + decoder, together with a couple of lights, that could be used during nighttime load shedding.

Does anyone have experience with a UPS that they recommend, or can suggest an alternative?

Thank you.

Sorry to hijack the thread a bit, but can you put LiFePO4 Batteries (like these 2x12V of these: https://www.bluenova.co.za/mobile-power-series/)  on that mecer inverter?

Ah, nevermind, got my answer here: https://powerforum.co.za/topic/2111-blue-nova/

The charger will most likely never charge it to 100% SOC.

I believe it would charge it quite comfortably as this Mecer has a 20A built in charger. 12V Lithium Ion should not be a problem.

But won't the inverter stop charging before the batteries reach 100% as (if I read it correctly) their absorption voltage is higher than lead acid?
