How did we create this review on Exide intergra 700 inverter UPS?
We purchased the product in February 2023 and have been using the Integra 700 for the last two months.
This review is completely based on our testing of the product and the features that we liked and disliked with it
In summer, power cuts and outages are common, last year we had faced this issue and to avoid it we planned to set up an inverter at home.
We went through various brands like Luminous, V-Guard and Microtek. While browsing the internet, we came across the Exide Integra 700. The main thing that attracted us is its design and ease of installation.
Once this inverter was fixed, it solved most of our issues with the power outages.
We were able to control all the essential appliances at home like, Fans, lights and coolers which helped in reducing the heat.
As summer stared, kids and guests are at home. It is a huge issue with kids when the power goes off during the daytime.
Kids cannot bare the heat, which makes them restless. Since we got this inverter, they are able to stay in home without issues even if there is a long power cut.
Specifications and features of the Exide Integra inverter
The integra is an integrated Pure Sine Wave Home UPS system with inbuilt Li-Ion battery.
It comes with 60 Months warranty against manufacturing defects on both inverter and battery, which is a peace of mind and confidence when we buy a product.
Usually when we install inverters, they need to be placed on the floor, which consumes the space in the room. The Integra is a wall mounted inverter, which makes it a good option to consider for homes which are small.
This being a Li-Ion system needs very less maintenance and provides high life-cycle.
Common inverters that we see use lead acid batteries, which are dangerous and produce fumes. It could be harmful for children in your home.
Also, Li-ion batteries are cleaner and easy to maintain.
Two models available in the market have different rating. The Integra700 is a wattage of 450 watts and the Integra1000 has an output of 720 watts.
The system is completely automated, and it is able to regulate the charging and discharging cycle.
It is able to maintain the battery cycles by managing the maximum and minimum charge levels.
One of the highlighting feature of the Integra inverter is the included Display
Display in Integra700 and Integra1000
The display is really handy in this inverter. It comes with a tri-color which you can use as a touch screen as well.
Display shows a real time clock and the ambient temperature of your room. Also, basic functions like the backup time and charging are shown in it.
Color of the display varies according to the mode that it is in. In backup mode the display stays white and in recharging mode it is shown as green.
There is a dedicated protection mode in this system which makes the display glow in red color.
Also, modes like overload protection and short-circuit protection are displayed on the screen.
