Chinwe noted that the solar inverter powers her fan, bulbs, and sockets. When fully charged, it can last overnight.

She added that it is charged by the sun and electricity, adding that:

"I have never had a single regret since this inverter was installed, I no longer have business with heat at home."

Chinwe's Facebook post read in part:

"...I spent 300k+ which covers the inverter, fresh wiring in my room which is solemnly for the inverter, energy saving fan and other miscellaneous expenses. If well charged, it can carry you till dawn.
"The inverter powers fan, sockets and bulb. Destiny said it can carry TV but I haven’t tried as there is no tv in my room.
"It’s charged with electricity and solar (sun). It will be very nice to use in office/shop, your light will never go off because of constant sunshine..."
