Frequently Asked Questions

A backup power system provides electricity to your home or work or select appliances even in power outages. Our backup kits provide a backup power supply with lithium-ion batteries that store energy and remain constant, reducing the threat of surges to your appliances.

When it comes to power backup you have a choice of diesel or petrol generators and battery backup power systems. Batteries are quieter and don’t emit any fumes like generators. They also don’t require external input in the form of fuel. For these reasons, we always recommend battery backups as the best backup power for load shedding.

Cell towers are also affected by load shedding and power outages, but they use telecom batteries, which are a specialised form of power backup supply, when these things happen. This keeps cell towers up and providing signal even if the power is out.
