I purchased of our reviewers recommend us this Inverter for my home of our reviewers recommend us, after a locally branded inverter which I had purchased 3 years ago under the assumption, that it would offer good after sales service of our reviewers recommend us, conked off . Spending INR 1500 to get the PCB repaired felt like a wise decision, only to realize in the next 60 days that I had been wrong. In the process I lost 30 days due to repair lead time and a lot of money on phone bills for follow up as the inverter service center was not keen on calling and giving me the real time update.
That is when I made this wise decision to go for a brand that offered comprehensive 2 year warranty, covering even acts of GOD. The other inverter guy always blamed it on GOD for the inverter fault. I am sure GOD will not spare him in heaven. LOL
This Inverter is far more advanced than I had thought it to be. Though it does not have an LCD display, I am pretty happy with the equivalent LED bulbs that are mounted on the front panel.
It has a charger circuit capable of charging 80-180AH batteries, all by a simple adjustment at the back panel, which gives a buyer the freedom to choose and buy any size of battery depending on his requirement, without spoiling the battery, which is a hidden secret for any other brand of UPS / Inverter.
The customer service is good and knowledgeable as they could answer even very serious technical queries that I had, without having to hang up the phone and make me wait.
I have had APC products for the past 10 years now, and I have always been a satisfied customer till date.
APC has been taken over by Schneider, which is even better as they are a good company.
Guys, please do buy APC BI 850 Sine Wave inverters, I do not guarantee of our reviewers recommend us Prestolite batteries that come with the comprehensive package, but buying any Exide battery is highly recommended by me, provided you take care of regular battery service !!!!
