Hello ..

Reg 850 va sin wave inverter. When battery is fully charged and all the load is taken off, how much power is needed for inverter?

Called Apc customer care but they have no clue on idle power usage.

Planning to replace APC inverter with other brand with low standby power consumption.

60watts standby usage is way too much.
