Need to keep PCs, laptops and TVs powered during loadshedding?

Then get this bad boi today. With up to 6 hours of run time on an office desktop PC with a single monitor, the Lalela GW1200VA Inverter Trolley should keep you going even through Stage 6 loadshedding. It's also powerful enough to keep your TV and DSTV going during the blackouts, and super compact and easy to move around the house or office to where it's needed most.

Get yours at the link below:

How loud is the unit, generally asking for the sake of most people - you always see the conversation about how the inverter battery unites are quite loud and you wouldnt really want one in the same room?

Still on the hunt for my ideal solution so would be good to know.

We haven't tested a unit ourselves, unfortunately, so I can't comment from personal experience, but we have not seen any mention of noise in reviews from users. They just mention that they don't even notice the switch over when the power does go out. So we would expect there to be some fan noise when the unit does get hot but since it hasn't been mentioned in reviews we've seen, I would guess it's not too intrusive

I can answer that question. It's loud as fuck.

I hate it.

It takes forever to recharge the battery, obviously dependent on the battery capacity. Fan goes for as long as the recharge happens. Really an annoying thing.

Anything more than 100W draw and the fan runs every 60 seconds or so when running off batteries. Default settings also drain the batteries too far which destroys Lead Acid batteries.

Pretty much the same story as with all entry level type inverters.

Ah we stand corrected, thanks for heads up!

I mean, it's still infinitely better than not being able to work. We put up with the noise because it's a minor inconvenience in the bigger scheme of things.
Does it only make noise when the mains power is off or is there a constant buzz even when power is on?

I can't say that there's much of a buzz. I mean it exists, but it's pretty low-key and barely audible when the thing is shoved under a desk.

Once power goes out, the fans turn on every few minutes to cool the inverter circuitry. More frequent when the load is high, obviously. When power restores, the fans go full blast and that is exceptionally loud. Not unlike a large server.
