Frequently Asked Questions
There is a manufacturer warranty on all batteries, but they are serviced locally based on the availability of the parts. The manufacturer’s warranty typically covers any defects in material or manufacturing, and usually lasts between five and ten years, depending on the product.
This warranty does not cover product failure and electrical damage resulting from improper installation. Be sure to use a certified professional with a decent track record.
We’re happy to consult with you on this. For starters, try our energy budget calculator. It should guide you to your required capacity and size. Each product also has quite a bit of information, including use cases and capacity, which should be quite informative.
Some real life advice points are:
- It is very important to note that a heating element like a stove, iron, geyser etc. consumes excessive power. It will require a significant investment to use on a battery inverter system.
- We recommend gas for stove tops.
- Please refer to the product website with the model number of your product. A 60″ plasma TV for instance can consume up to 500 watts of power, while a comparable LCD panel of the same size consumes only 100 watts.
- In old refrigerators, there was no requirement for energy efficiency, and these refrigerators often consume much more energy than you might expect. Your budget should also include consideration for investing in new appliances, where possible.
The products we offer have been individually designed by taking into account the best of the best products on the market. With our batteries, we only use cells that are certified A grade, and are produced by the biggest lithium battery manufacturers in the world. This ensures that our products are reliable and of high quality, giving our customers the peace of mind that they are receiving the best possible product.
Our battery management system is also top-of-the-line, with a built-in temperature sensor, over-current protection, and short-circuit protection. It also provides efficient charging and discharging capabilities, with an optimized algorithm that maximizes battery life. All this ensures that our customers have a safe, reliable, and efficient source of power. A good start with comparing apples with apples when it comes to batteries is to check how many times the battery can be used – which is the number of cycles. No matter how good a product appears to be, if the cycles are low, you’re going to have to replace it when they run out. Our batteries have been selected not just for performance, but also longevity. All of them have a listed cycles rating, so that you can be assured of your investment.
Inverters that we select are manufactured by INVT. We are confident that our inverters are of the highest quality and reliability. All our inverters come with a five-year warranty and are tested to UL1741 standards.

This is not our area of expertise, but we have partnered with Department of Labour certified electricians (that carry a wireman’s license). We’re happy to put you in touch with an installer that’s in your area. You’re of course welcome to use your own installer, as long as they follow the SANS 10142 standard.
