We looked at some of the options Incredible and HiFiCorp have available as part of their extensive load shedding essentials range.
Inverters are becoming an increasingly popular solution to power outages caused by load shedding. For those who work from home, it is essential to have a reliable backup power source that can keep multiple devices running for several hours. Inverters offer this solution by seamlessly switching between Eskom power and backup power, keeping your home office up and running during extended periods of load shedding. Even if you are not working, inverters are perfect to keep your family entertained and have a couple of lights on.
In addition to Inverters, both retailers also offer battery replacements for trolley inverters. The frequent power cuts result in inverters not being able to completely recharge in between the power cuts. Fortunately, all is not lost. Lithium-ion batteries have become the preferred battery type for inverters due to their longer lifespan and improved performance under pressure. They can run completely flat without causing damage to the battery, making them ideal for extended power outages. Additionally, they can be charged and discharged up to 2 000 times, making them a durable and cost-effective choice for South Africans who experience frequent load shedding.
You can now purchase a replacement battery for your inverter trolley at your nearest Incredible Connection store and have the old battery removed free of charge by their tech experts, who will ensure it is responsibly recycled.
