    Default Pure sine wave inverter

    I have bought myself a 2000w pure sine wave inverter.
    Must I really run x2 deep cycle batteries off it or can I only use one.

    That is like saying. I bought a car, do I need to put petrol or diesel in it.

    No, not necessarily, if its a 12- 220 Volt inverter but one would not get far with 2000 watt load on it.

    Is it a 12V or 24V unit?
    Which one did you buy?

    Rather post the brand and model number, or the detailed specs so that you can get the correct advice.

    Without the fridge it will last 4 or 5 hours.

    As jy 12v inverter het. Net een battery nodig.

    Sien dit as n gennie. Totale ah van batterye = liter petrol. Een 50ah battery is 5 liter petrol. N bank van 500ah batterye is 50 liter petrol.
    N 300w inverter is n 1100 uno, die 2000w n v8.

    Almal loop op petrol, hang maar net af hoeveel krag jy gebruik en of jy n die v8 gbruik of nie.
    Vrywaring: Niks wat ek hier kwyt raak moet hoegenaamd as feite beskou word nie.

    At 2000 watts, its almost certainly 24V or more. That means 2 x 12V batteries in series.

    2000W / 12V = 167Amps
    2000W / 24V = 83Amps

    12V on 2000W inverter can work, but you will certainly kill the battery at full load.

    Never going to use full 2000w.

    But for now only tv and modem.

    Silly question, but why is the TV always first priority? I see this in many threads.

    Each to there own, TV is very very far down my list on things I want to power during load shedding and I also find it strange that TV is the number 1 priority for 99% of people.

    For me, sitting in total silence for those 2 - 3 hours or actually having a conversation with someone by far beets the yap yap of a TV.

    When you have retired and have spent the whole day in "conversation" with you're spouse, watching your favorite TV show is a welcome break.

    You only need 1 x 105Ah battery to power the TV and modem(about 8 hours if it is not a very big TV and also not a plasma). If you add a fridge it would be best to have 2x105Ah. You might delay buying the 2nd battery until you want to add the fridge.
