Wandel International Nigeria Limited, a member of the Simba Group and makers of alternate energy power solutions which include inverters and solar powered systems recently launched its Inverlast range of inverter batteries into the country at a dealer’s conference held in Abuja.
Luminous Inverlast batteries are long-lasting batteries developed especially for inverter usage. They use a tubular battery design which reduces internal corrosion and extends the life of the battery. The batteries also charge much faster compared to existing ones available in the market due to the way the tubes are structured, which positively impacts the way they store energy.
