In layman language, an inverter is a device that stores energy (electricity) as a backup in the batteries when there is power and distributes it in order to run home appliances in case of a power failure. Most parts of India experience power cuts and if you have an important day at work or an exam, electricity shortage could certainly result in a major crisis. Thus, purchasing an inverter comes as a handy solution.
However, a lot of people don’t know which inverter will work best for them. This is where there is a need for a proper understanding of the basics and related facts.
Depending on various factors we have listed here some of the top-rated inverters available in India:

It is a Premium Product that comes with several state-of-the-art features, such as in-built bypass switch and IBGM (Intelli Battery Gravity Management) Technology. It is a pure sine-wave inverter with hybrid technology and made with plastic material. It comes with a 12 VDC battery system with 950 VA rated capacity and 760 W output power.
This inverter system is compatible with all AC electronic devices and prevents fluctuations. The Microtek stabilizer provides high performance with power-saving technology and thereby makes it energy efficient.
Luminous is one of India’s leading manufacturers of home electrical products and this inverter is one of its leading products. The Zelio+ 1700 is a pure sinewave inverter UPS that can be used both as an inverter and a UPS for a personal computer. The device features an LED display that shows the status of power back-up/battery charging time in hours and minutes. This inverter boasts of a noiseless operation with the help of low harmonic distortion that makes it ideal for families with little kids.
It comes with a bypass switch that supplies output directly from the grid in case of Home UPS fault. Zelio is armed with comprehensive protection features such as short-circuit, reverse polarity, battery over-charge and battery deep-discharge.
V-Guard Prime 1150 Digital Sine-wave inverter is a heavy-duty inverter with impressive performance. Equipped with multiple features, such as Battery Topping Reminder to avoid battery damage and interrupted performance, High-Performance Selection Switch to extract more out your inverter basis varied needs, Battery Gravity Builder to keep your battery healthy, and many others.
