Store power for when there’s none

Here is another convenient option to address the problem of load-shedding.

The inventiveness of people knows few boundaries. This is evident in the dozens of interesting new solutions that have appeared on the market in response to Eskom’s recent woes.

Power-in-a-box consists of a charger, storage batteries and inverter to provide silent, clean back-up power for four hours or even longer, depending on the usage. The operating principle is simple: when Eskom power is on, the built-in charger stores some of the energy in the batteries for later use should the power go off. The batteries are deep-cycle, maintenance-free, factory-sealed, lead-acid types with calcium alloy grids; they are made in South Africa and are SABS-approved.

Equipment such as lights, fridges and  freezers, computers, television sets and alarm systems can be connected to the Power-in-a-box. When the Eskom power goes off, the batteries continue providing electricity automatically. When the power returns, it automatically recharges the batteries, ready for the next disruption.


  • Silent, clean energy that can be kept indoors.
  • No maintenance or fuel.
  • Automatically activated without human intervention.
  • Inexpensive to use and supplied with a one-year warranty.
  • Accepted in complexes, flats and other communities where generators are forbidden.
  • Two models are available, differing in physical size, weight and storage capacity – the Lite costs R4 999 and the Ultra costs R6 999. Both prices include VAT and delivery to your door countrywide.
