Your 3 load shedding solutions:
An Inverter or Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is a device that provides battery backup when the electricity power fails completely or drops to an unacceptable voltage level. An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) steps in when the power goes out, and lets you carry on with your life, unconcerned about power cuts or surges.
More specifically for your home, we offer three back-up solutions:
Option 1 – Entry Level Solution:
If you are wanting to backup only a specific section of your home during load shedding, we offer a basic modified sine wave range of plug and play UPS / Inverters. Simple to install, available in 1kVA & 2kVA sizes and allows for continuous runtime on only specific household items such as TV/ DSTV/ DVD player, lamps etc. Pricing includes: 1) Your Inverter 2) batteries 3) cabinet. STOCK IS LIMITED!
Option 2 – Flexible Usage Solution:
As a portable solution to power outages we offer a push trolley (1000W), inverter + battery system. Powers appliances such as TV’s, DSTV Decoders, M-Net Decoders, Lights, Alarm Systems, Laptop Computers, DeskJet Printers, Radios, Hi-Fi Systems, Security Systems, Cash Registers, PABX Systems, Modems, Hubs, Routers, etc. This modified sine wave inverter system can supply emergency power to private homes, businesses, shopping centres, offices, weekend getaways and camping, which is in contrast to a generator. STOCK IS LIMITED! (1000W unit with 2 hour backup @ R7,950 ex vat)
Option 3 – Convenient, High Performance Solution:
As long term back-up solution, we suggest you seriously consider installing one of our pure sinewave Home Inverter Systems.They run off a battery operated alternative power supply, rechargeable by the national grid power (ESKOM) when not in use and can be used in your home to power all lighting, plugs and selected appliances for your daily necessities – for hours on end. Our units are connected neatly to your DB board, so transition to your Advanced Home inverter is automatic, so you will barely notice that load shedding has even begun. Available sizes: 3600W, 6000W & 10,000W User manual STOCK IS LIMITED! (3600W unit with 90 min backup @ R27, 950 ex vat)
Depending on your specified load consumption, the above units offer a 2 hour | 4 hour | 6 hour | 8 hour or 10 hour backup solutions. Electricity Consumption Chart

A households requiring 3 – 4 hours uninterrupted backup during load shedding with the below appliances would be best suited to install our 3600W Home Inverter System together with 4 x 100Ah batteries. We offer delivery and full installation
What backup solution is ideal for my home?
ESKOM and load shedding is here to stay so we suggest a long term solution that handles appliances throughout your home as opposed to isolated areas. (3600w, 6000w or 10000w) Our fully automated PURE SINE WAVE home inverter systems are connected directly to your Distribution board (DB Board) with its own earth leakage protecting it. Recharging your batteries costs minimal as there is built in 4 way charger. (Battery life will usually last be well over 5 years) * All our advanced Inverter systems are solar compatible so if you want to install a solar system at a later stage, this is possible. You can also potentially add up to 30 batteries for longer power outages. Pricing info
Our bigger systems (6000w & 10000w) can run your entire home excluding geysers, pool and stove which use the most start up power. 1) We strongly advise you install energy efficient LED lighting in your home/office, as this allows our systems the capacity to be used for other plug circuits as well. 2) We also suggest you look into acquiring one of our geyser timers as well as a geyser blanket. These two solutions alone will save you as much as R500 – R650 in electricity expenditure each month. (Almost R80,000 over 10 years!)

Why install a PURE SINE WAVE Home solution Inverter?
Normal AC Mains, given to us from the grid (ESKOM) is of a PURE SINE WAVE wave nature, so has very little harmonic distortion, subject to outside interference. (lightning and large AC Loads etc) All AC equipment in appliance stores today have been designed to run off a PURE SINE WAVE form, i.e computers, lights, appliance motors etc. The internal components of the inverter/UPS inverts the incoming DC Voltage into a sine wave wave form, and because of the sophistication of these components, the pure sinewave Inverter/UPS is more expensive than a modified sine wave option… more
Need to purchase Surge Protection for your expensive appliances?
Note: Not all your appliances will receive back-up from your Home Inverter which makes them a threat to switch-on surge when power resumes. We offer 3 surge protection solutions for high end equipment such as GARAGE DOORS, GATES, BOOMS, ACCESS CONTROL EQUIPMENT, ALARM SYSTEMS, DOMESTIC FRIDGES & FREEZERS, industrial freezers, AIR CONDITIONERS and other essential equipment. Switch-on surge damage is the No.1 cause of depletion of your home/office appliances. Our champion designed Surge Essential is an all purposes surge protection device with the added function of a built in auto 3 minute switch-on timer, which eradicates switch-on surge damage, resulting from load shedding.
