The standard batteries in this kit are rated to last 150-200 cycles (load sheddings).

During occasional load shedding, at stage 1-3, the average life span is 2 years.

Unfortunately, during constant load shedding, at stage 4 - 6,  these cycles will be depleted within a few months. 

The batteries will also be further degraded due to insufficient time to recharge fully in between load shedding cycles.

**Please note that as soon as the batteries stop lasting, unfortunately the warranty becomes void, as this means that the batteries have depleted their cycles and reached the end of their life.

Please always keep the total load shedding count of 150-200 cycles (high cycle batteries) or 200-250 cycles (deep cycle batteries) in mind when running the system. 

Therefore, during stage 4-6, we highly recommend keeping the inverter’s power switch OFF. Then, only switch it on when the need for backup power is crucial.

This will preserve the longevity of the batteries (please keep it plugged in to the wall permanently to keep it charged).

*Owing to the weight of this item , there will be an additional R795 courier charge.

*Collection from our office in Joburg is at no extra charge

  • Are you in the dark during load shedding?
  • Does your favourite program stop recording on your PVR?
  • Do you need to catch up work on your computer?
  • Does your phone run flat when you need it the most?

You need an inverter system. See below Frequently Asked Questions on how they work:

Q) What is an inverter system and what does it do do?
It is an inverter unit coupled with a battery which provides power when there is load shedding. It keeps its battery charged when there is Eskom power. As soon as Eskom power cuts, the system instantly transfers over to battery power so you can keep your lights, TV, computers (excluding Apple MAC Desktops only), chargers and wifi running during load shedding

Q) Is it easy to connect up? Do I have to fiddle with electronics?
It is super easy The system is plug and play.
The inverter has a regular 3 pin plug that goes into the wall. You then have a 3 way multiplug on the inverter that allows you to connect any appliance you want. Keep the appliances connected at all times, the inverter will automatically switch to battery as soon as it detects Eskom power is down.

Q) How much backup time will I have on the unit before normal Eskom power come back on to recharge the battery?
Assume a computer, TV, and desk lamp are connected to the inverter:
This unit will last 4-6 hours

Only want a lamp, wifi router and laptop connected to the inverter:
This unit will last 10-12 hours

Q) What appliances can I run on the inverter system?
Our plug and play systems will run any appliance that has low power usage and does not have a motor. So you can run TVs, computers, wifi, lights, chargers, etc.
Fridges, fans, heaters are not recommended to be connected to inverters. For those items, we can suggest a more specialised system - please click "contact us" and let us know your requirements.

Please note, this unit is considered as a 'large' UPS - it will not be able to charge a smaller UPS as it is modified sine wave

PLEASE NOTE: This unit is not suitable for use with an Apple IMAC as they require pure sine wave 

Q) What is the warranty/guarantee?

The entire system comes with a full 1 year warranty.

Kit Includes:

1x Mecer 2400VA, 1440W, 24V DC-AC Inverter UPS (20A Charger)
2x Enertec / Energizer / Royal / Deltec / Vision 100Ah 12V Batteries
Steel Battery Case

  • Asked by Craig
    Will this unit function like a normal ups? In other words, can I plug my pc into it and it will stay on when there is a power outage. Also, do I need a special db board for this unit or do I just plug it into a wall socket? Answer:
    Yes, it will function like a regular UPS. It is a plug and play unit, so you will not need a separate DB board. Think of itthe same as normal computer UPS just with extra long run time
  • Asked by Hannes
    Is this suitable to run some network equipment in a power outage? Specifically a router, two access points, two low power PCs used for servers and some external hard drives (3.5")? I am a but confused and don't understand when you need "Pure (true) Sine Wave". If this specific unit will not work please can you recommend something else? Answer:
    Yes. For those items, modified sine wave is fine and it can definitely run all of that for a few hours
  • Asked by Marilise
    Could you please assist: I want to run 2 pc's, 1 telephone line and a security camera on the inverter (1440W inverter, with 2x 12v batteries) Would that be sufficient? Answer:
    100% sufficient
  • Asked by Reenen
    what type of batteries are included (brand) and what brand of batteries are the upgraded deep cycle batteries? Is there a substantial benefit in upgrading to the deep cycle batteries? Is collection an option? Answer:
    1) Energizer 105ah high cycle batteries 2) Enertec 105ah deep cycle battery (made in same factory as Energizer) 3) Yes, the deep cycle will have around 20% longer life span than high cycle
  • Asked by allan winik
    in your advert you say there is a 1yr guarantee. will it be a onsite repair or do i have to take it in for repairs and what does the guarantee cover Answer:
    It is a carry in warranty. The warranty covers the inverter and battery against manufacturer faults - so for example, if your batteries suddenly stop holding charge or the inverter stops giving output, we will then send it in for repair/replacement
  • Asked by Craig
    Can you daisy-chain these inverters to make them supply power longer? Answer:
    Yes, but rather than add more inverters, all you need to do is just add another 2 batteries
  • Asked by John
    Can the unit be charged by use of solar panel. If so what fittings required. Answer:
    Yes, it can, you would need to add on: <a href="https://www.geewiz.co.za/chargers/21741-mecer-external-pwm-solar-charge-controller-for-ivr-2400lbks.html">https://www.geewiz.co.za/chargers/21741-mecer-external-pwm-solar-charge-controller-for-ivr-2400lbks.html</a> and a solar panel: <a href="https://www.geewiz.co.za/solar/107646-canadian-solar-330w-solar-panel-.html">https://www.geewiz.co.za/solar/107646-canadian-solar-330w-solar-panel-.html</a>
  • Asked by Carl
    what is the difference between 10 A and 20 A Answer:
    10A is the recommended charging speed. Change it to 20A only if you need a fast charge for whatever reason
  • Asked by a guest
    Why does the description exclude Apple Mac, won't the inverter charge a MacBook Pro Answer:
    Macbook Pro will be OK. Apple Mac desktop uses a power correction PSU, so needs a pure sine wave inverter.
  • Asked by a guest
    On your mecer 2400va inverter does it use pure sine or modified sine wave output? Answer:
    It is a modified sine wave unit
  • Asked by Louis Ackermann
    Why not apple mac? Answer:
    Apple Mac uses a special power correcting PSU - this type of PSU requires a pure sine wave inverter to operate
  • Asked by Suraldi Nel
    Is it safe to run a smart TV off a modified sine wave? I am confused as to what electronics cannot be run on modified sine wave - would appreciate guidance! Answer:
    Yes, it is safe. Generally any motor products and highly sensitive items like large audio amplifiers should be avoided with modified sine wave. Smart TVs will work 100%.

Awesome product

Works really well. Courier had me worked up after damaging the packaging and the battery cabinet.... inverter was running since who knows when. But Geewizz sent a replacement battery cabinet at no cost and my setup is running perfectly. Works really well! Thanks to the Geewizz team for keeping me informed and resolving the bad taste the courier left behind....

By James F. on  28 March 2019 (2400VA Mecer Inverter + 2x 100AH Batteries Trolley (8 HOUR BATTERY LIFE) KIT - 1440W (150-200 cycles)) :

Mecer 2400VA Inverter

Fan noisy, not turning off but the batteries show charged on the display? No instruction manual included (can download that I suppose but still....) Build quality not great - The inverter unit is not parallel to the top of the box (badly misaligned), wires feeding from the batteries up through the steel box housing up to the inverter are not fed through a rubber grommet to protect them.

Not bad but not great either though for what you pay....I did expect the inverter to be aligned straight on the battery box though, how hard is that!
