Constant power supply is very important especially for hospitals, banks and other organization, because of this; power inverters and battery are needed especially in Nigeria where there is constant power failure. These power inverters are mostly preferred to power generators when it comes to supplying backup or standby power during power outage due to the fact they do not generate noise.
However, power inverters are not as popular as electric generators when it comes to backup power application because they are more expensive. Notwithstanding, power inverters may be expensive but they are far better than generators because of the peace and quiet you get when they are on.
In recent times, power inverters are becoming less expensive as they used to, although the same can’t be said for inverter batteries but we new companies coming up every day, we believe the price will soon be going down due to competition.
In this article, we have put together top brands of power inverter and battery prices in Nigeria. Some of the top brands are Prag, Bluegate, Sukam Inverters, Mercury, and Tripp Lite.

Cost of Inverter Installation
The cost of installing inverter vary, this is because the way to install it depends on the level of work required. Installing inverter to operate in parallel to your main supply, for instance UPS or AVR, it costs 10,000 Naira. This is the best way to connect inverters of 1KVA and below.
However, if you would like the inverter to share main cabling through switchover like power generator, the installation will be more expensive
For inverters of 1.5KVA, switchover is best recommended and installing power inverter can range from 15,000 Naira to over 30,000 Naira depending on the level of work it is intended for.
For wall mounted inverter installation, the price is 15,000 Naira
Benefits of a Power Inverter
This is one of the benefits of using inverters, power inverters have silent operations unlike what we have with generators. The only noise you barely hear from a power inverter is the fan and clicking of relays. This is best for homes, hospitals, banks etc.
No Petrol or Diesel
This is another important benefit of power inverter; it doesn’t require petrol or diesel to run. So when there is fuel scarcity and hike in fuel price this would not affect you and this also eliminates the risks that comes with fuel and improper storage which causes fire.
Power inverter runs silently and you do not need to be visiting filling stations, and they are sound-free. All it requires is for you to charge the battery.
No Substance Emission
Power inverters do not emit Carbon IV Oxide because they do not use petrol or diesel and so they don’t have internal combustion engine. Therefore, they can be in a room or at a corning in your apartment.
Lower Running Cost
The cost of running a power inverter is cheaper than powering generator because inverters require no petrol or diesel, all you need to do is charge it when there is power supply.
At the long run, power inverter is cheaper than generators because of the recurrent cost of powering generator. If you spend 2500 naira weekly for fuel for your generator, in three years it will be a total of 390,000 naira and adding maintenance it makes it to be over 400,000 naira so at the long run, power inverters are cheaper than generators
Uninterruptible Power Supply
Power inverters can be connected in a way that once there’s power outage, the inverter automatically takes over. You do not have to do anything, this is automatic and instantaneous. This process can switch back when the city power is restored. In some of these power inverters, UPS are in-built to provide faster response time.
With these kind of inverters, you can use them in hospitals, banks and place where you need 24/7 uninterrupted power supply.
Application of Power Inverters
Power inverters can be used in various organizations, homes, offices. See list below
Medical equipment in hospitals and clinics
Telecommunications equipment (Masts), etc
Power inverters can provide power range from 800KAV to 1000KVA
