A full charge can last for hours and hours and hours and hours.

I think what you all need to be asking is how long does it last with your specific load taking all variables in to consideration. Variables like not depleting the batteries to less than 50% as an example
Calculate your load - plug in the numbers - and you will come to the answer

The battery backup time in hours can be calculated using following formula:

Backup Time = Battery AH x 12V x N x Efficiency of Battery / Load in Watts
where,
Battery AH = Ampere Hour Capacity of Battery
N = Number of 12 V Batteries needed
Efficiency of Battery = Generally it is 0.8, which is the max. power factor of home standard


So...for the sellers bundle
Battery AH : 90 AH
Number of Batteries : 2
Load in Watts : 1200 Watt
Backup Time: 1.44 hours

This is the best case scenario - power is still drawn from the inverter which isn't factored in and calculation based on good battery health
Realistically you wont get close to 1.44 hours and that too - the 1.44hrs is based on completely depleting those batteries - which isn't good

Okay lets ask it this way. What setup did you have and how long did it last with the setup.

Interested but need more detail on the inverter. Do you have a link or model number?

Mmm.. a heads up seeing there's a bit of interest here: I managed secure it - arrangements already made. OP probably wasn't able to get online today.

What time did you make arrangements?

I see OP didn't close this thread yet. So this is a heads up that I'm selling the inverter, sale thread here. I'm keeping the batteries, so just selling the inverter (I paid more than R1500 as there was a minor curveball one the final sale).
