This thread proved to be most helpful. Thank you to all the comments/suggestions/advice. I picked up my battery today, just waiting for the inverter to arrive, then I'll be ready for load-shedding. Just wanting to run my TV and fibre router and maybe one lamp.

Battery - Vision 100Ah 12V Deep Cycle AGM Battery ( Extra Heavy Duty 6FM100Z-X )
Inverter - Mecer 1200Va 720W 12V Inverter | IVR-1200LBK

Did you get a fuse too?

I just bought a car audio 80A fuse and fuse holder. Cut it into the positive wire, supplied in the Mecer box.

My Mecer is coming only on the 30th of March :(

Had to cancel the order, thats a bit to far off.

On a positive note, now i can look for a decent 12v inverter and buy one 180ah omnipower battery that will keep everything running great :)

Or does the formula worked out on 24*example (180ah) differ to 12*180ah/2?

There is some good inverters, but a lot of them fan is always on . My 1500watt with 3000watt peak is 12v, but fan is always on.
I am using the ecco model.

But if im correct due to 12v now and not 24v, the equation shows that less hours are gained on the battery?
Example: side note, i suck at math
12x180ah(one 12v batt)/wattage 650/2 x0.85=1.412
24x180/650/2x0.85=2.824

So my new updated question is
What are my battery needs on a 12v inverter to run 2-3hours at 650watt :D

Yes, you have more energy on the 24V system than the 12V.

i wouldnt go less than 300 amps because your batteries are going to deplete quite a lot on say 200 amps and you will then in the long run not get as many life cycles. Rather too big than too little, it will save you financially in the long run
