Inverter batteries are also known as UPS batteries. Batteries can not be used with solar on grid inverter. It could be either a lead-acid rechargeable battery or Lithium-ion rechargeable battery used with home Inverters or off grid solar inverters. These solar off grid inverters can be
The Home Inverter battery has two technologies:
1) Lead Acid battery - The main component of the battery is the lead inside it. Higher lead ensures better battery performance and quality. Lead-acid batteries are not sealed and Maintenance-free hence it requires water top-up once in 3-6 month
2) Lithium battery – It has made of Lithium cells which has three forms i.e.
b) Lithium Phosphate
3) Nickel Manganese cobalt.
How to Choose Inverter Battery
If you are planning to buy inverter battery online and you do not have any idea how to choose a battery for your home. You should consider this before buying any battery
1) Battery Capacity measured in Ah (Ampere-hour) or Wh (Watt-hour)
2) Battery warranty
3) Price, depends on Battery Ah and warranty.
4) Brand – A national brand having service support should be given preference
In the process of buying inverter with battery, the customer should first decide Inverter Capacity, it depends upon power consumption, if your power consumption is up to 500 watts, Inverter and UPS up to 1 KVA is the best to buy, the selection of inverter battery depends upon the duration of power backup time, if your home is having up to 4 hours of a power cut, Single /12v battery is the best buy, for long power cuts, go for Double battery Inverter system.
UPS Battery Price
UPS or Inverter battery price depends upon Battery AH and Warranty, The price ranges from ₹4000 to ₹50,000. Lithium batteries will be the costliest compared to the tubular lead-acid battery because it is the latest technology product with higher energy efficiency and longer life. The other important factor which impacts the price of batteries in India are.
How does the price of Inverter Batteries vary on Battery Type?

Buy the best battery in India under various price range including those under ₹10,000, and ₹25000 to save money and get best deals and discounts. You can find and buy an Inverter battery online by filtering down your search based upon factors including Price, Technology, warranty, Discount and many such specifications. Here is the list of all battery models with current Price
Types of Inverter Battery: There are three types of battery
There is no much difference in Tubular and Solar battery technology except warranty and life. The height of the battery determines the technology type, Tubular means tall battery and flat plate means short height battery.
Similarly, all solar batteries are C10 rated and Home batteries are C20 rated. Here c Stands for Charging. Contrary, the Lithium battery is the latest technology product available in India. It has many features over existing popular lead-acid batteries.
The most obvious advantage of lithium batteries is the compact size and weight due to the extremely high energy density. Generally speaking, a lithium LFP (Lithium Ferro Phosphate) battery is about 25% of the size and weight of an equivalent lead-acid battery, which is helped by the much higher depth-of-discharge available in a lithium battery. Lithium battery systems are generally made up of smaller, easy to handle modules of sizes from 2kWh to 4kWh which gives much more flexibility when sizing a system. This also enables additional capacity to be added if needed at a later stage.
• High efficiency - up to 98%
• High energy density - compact and light weight
• Usable capacity up to 100%
• Partial state of charge (PSOC)
• Up to 10-year Life

Battery Backup Time
The backup time of a battery depends upon Battery storage capacity measured in Watt Hour (Wh) or Kilowatt-hour (kWh)
Generally, batteries are rated in AH and Voltage. To calculate watt hour, you should multiple, Battery ampere * battery voltage (12 Volt).
Power formula is (Wh) = Ampere * Voltage
For example, 150 Ah lead-acid battery and the battery voltage is 12 Volt.
The storage capacity is 150 AH * 12 Volt = 1800-Watt hour or 1.8 kWh.
The higher the watt Hour, the higher will be backup time. Usually, a 150 Ah/ 12-volt lead-acid battery gives around 3 hours of backup on 400-watt Power consumption.
In India, 150 Ah is the bestselling rating as it can last up to 3-4 hours if you use Led light, few ceiling fans, Led Television, mobile and Laptop charging. For higher duration backup, one can go for the higher Ah battery.
Similarly, in Lithium battery – 80 Ah /12.8 Volt is the most selling lithium battery which has a storage capacity of 1,000-Watt-hour power. The backup time varies with a change in power consumption.
Inverter and battery are two different products, hence the warranty offered on Inverter and battery differs, usually, Inverter comes with 2 years manufacturer warranty and Inverter battery warranty varies from 2 years to 5 years depending upon Battery technology
The warranty on the battery is co-related with battery life. Higher warranty on battery will have a higher battery life.
In Lead Acid Batteries warranty has two aspects a) Replacement warranty and b) Pro-rata warranty is also known as buy-back warranty. If your battery fails during replacement warranty, Manufacturer such as Exide, Luminous, Okaya will replace it with a new battery and during pro-rata warranty period, a new battery is offered at a discounted price, which is, also known as buyback offer.
While in Lithium battery, there is no buyback offer, manufacturers such as Tesla, Powerwall, LG Chem, HV Solar, Panasonic will offer replacement of the battery in case battery fails or it does not give power backup
