Re: most reliable inverter brand?

Sukam is considered very good. They charge a fancy premium to boot. No idea about their after sales service.

APC's after sales service is excellent. They had replaced one inverter I had 4 times - they attributed to that particular batch having problem etc etc., which I had difficuty in accepting; BUT - each time - the replacement was on "no questions asked", delivered at home, incl., a change of address to another town. I can only wonder how many manufacturers will take such a bother?
On another occasion (this was with a UPS for the home PC), APC had delivered one 3 pin universal adapter to me driving across Delhi to Noida & after apologizing for the delay by calling from Bangalore for 10 mins! The cost they had incurred for that was definitely many times the cost of the single adapter which you can buy for ~Rs. 70!; So, service point of view, I will (have to!) vouch for APC.

Re: most reliable inverter brand?

I agree with you. My computer UPS got fried two times without damaging any connected electronics. Two times I called APC and they send some courier guy to pick my damaged ups and delivered another one. All without blaming my home wiring or lightning or without asking any silly questions. Their service is truly world class.

thanks guys

i have finally purchased a Su-Kam, Falcon i , 800VA inverter (Rs 4500/-), original trolly (Rs 800/-) , 150 AH Su-Kam battery (Rs 7800/-).

[135 AH su-kam battery is for Rs 7300/-, 150 AH battery gives a little more backup time]

Important Features:-

(1) noiseless

(2) it is pure sine wave inverter (as mentioned on the cover and mannual), but the dealer (he was very friendly) told me that it takes two batteries to make a pure sine wave, and said he wonders how a single battery inverter delivers pure sine wave?

Thanks Mandeep for posting this. On this forum many members (especially newly joined) ask suggestions/recommendations for various products and later vanish!

But you made a point to post what at the end you purchased. I also appeciate you for mentioning prices , that will certainly help not only to those who arre looking for an inverter but also to rest others by providing them some ball park pricing of a typical invertor.

By the way what is the back up time for a full load operation and how long it takes to charge the battery from fully discharged to fully charged state?

Regards

SUhas

SUhas
thanks for the encouragement....

BACKUP-TIME:

(1) with 3 fan + 3 Tube Light + 1 TV (21”) = 2.6 Hrs, backup-time

(2) with 3 fan + 3 Tube Light = 3.2 Hrs, backup-time

(3) with 2 fan + 4 Tube Light = 3.4 Hrs, backup-time

(4) with 2 fan + 1 Tube Light + 2 CFL + 1 Computer = 3.5 Hrs, backup-time

(5) with 2 fan + 1 Tube Light + 2 CFL = 6 Hrs, backup-time

(6) with 1 Fan + 1 Tube Light = 11.1 Hrs, backup-time

CHARGING-TIME

Su-Kam Home UPS/INVERTER can charge its battery 40% faster (zero to full charge time =

2.0 hrs aprox.)
, which helps the product to work really efficiently and give much longer

power backup as compared to normal UPS in areas with frequent power cuts.

Re: most reliable inverter brand?

Hi Everybody,

I am new here and this is my first post.

Well, today I went to a Su-Kam dealer to buy a UPS. I found the Falcon i. But the price the dealer quoted put me off a bit. He said it was 6,500 for the Falcon i. Mandeep has posted above that he had bought the Falcon i for 4,500 last August. I also remember that I had also inquired at Su-Kam (not this dealer) about the same time and they had told me that the price was 4,500. Have they increased the price by 2,000 in under a year ? Or is the dealer conning me ? I am confused. Has anybody got a bargain on the Falcon i recently ?

Thanks

Re: most reliable inverter brand?

Typically, many of the electrical appliances have a price spike in summer (fans, a/cs, coolers, inverters etc.) and at Deewali (TVs etc.) as the demand peaks at this time.

The dealers may not be able to jack up the prices, may simply stop offering any discounts on the MRP.

Re: most reliable inverter brand?

The dealer told me that the MRP was 6,500 and offered me a discount of 5%. Assuming the MRP did not change over the year, last year I was offered the UPS for 4,500 and Mandeep has already said that he bought it at that price, does that mean we were given a 2000 discount ? Almost one third the MRP ? Unlikely. From 30% discount to a 5% one, the difference appears too steep.
