What does a Battery Backup System (UPS) consist of?

Each Battery Backup System consists of a few key components. We have summarised them for you to make sure that you won’t be left in the dark anymore.

Lithium Battery

The main component of each Emergency Power System is the Lithium Battery. It stores the electricity for you Load Shedding and keeps your important appliances running.

The size of your Lithium Battery determines for how long you can sustain yourself through a power outage.

UPS Inverter

Your house is using Alternating Current (AC), while you store your Battery Power with Direct Current (DC). The UPS Inverter converts your Battery Power into House Electricity.

The size of your Inverter determines which appliances you can sustain during a power failure and how many appliances you can run simultaneously.


The installation of your Backup System is one of the most important parts, as it will ensure that your system will work the way you intend it to work.

Take special care of systems that are going to be wired into your Distribution Board, as wiring faults can impact your day-to-day living.
