1) Most fans consume max 70 W (that would be the wattage consumed at max speed). The wattage is usually written on the fan itself or you can call the company and inquire the wattage of your specific model.
2) I bought my homage 1kva in Jan 2009. It has given me no problem up till now. I have never even called the customer service even once. Perhaps someone else can answer your question.
3) 1 year free service is for factory defect only. If you damage the inverter by incorrect installation etc. I am sure they will ask you to foot the bill.
If you buy homage make sure you get it from the authorized retailers of the company. Also make sure it is the imported Chinese one and not the locally assembled one. Also, observe it closely for the first week to make sure it is operating as it should and not over-charging your battery. If you find any problem get it fixed from the company free of charge.
Thanks for the info Raza. I looked through this post in detail and I see you have been very helpful. Much appreciated…
Bank Alfalah has given out offers for buying these homage UPS and from there I got the details for supplier website http://www.rni.com.pk/product3.php and they are in the I-10/3 industrial area of ISB. They are also suppliers of kenwood products. I sure hope they should have the proper/imported ups device.
Secondly, can you tell good model numbers for the batteries available in the market these days (if you know any). Metro is advertising “Osaka UPS Battery 125/150” these days that have “UPS 125/150” written on the front, but your comments suggest they are the normal car ones… I see you mentioned you’re using the OSAKA specific model but I believe that was the available option to you in early 2009, any other new models that you know of?
Thirdly, since i am considering the 2kva model that requires two batteries for 24v input, i am thinking to get them in the range of 100/125 each (totalling to 200/250 amp). Considering a full load of 5 fans + 10 (15w) energy savors, Do you think it should be good enough in the long run to support one hour power outage every two hours (after a full charge at installation time)? Even if the situation gets worse to power outage every alternate hour, would this battery size (200/250) still suffice?
