Product Description
The Back-UPS Pro provides abundant battery backup power, so you can work through short and medium length power outages. It safeguards your equipment against damaging surges and spikes that travel along utility and network lines. The Back-UPS Pro also features automatic voltage regulation (AVR), which instantly adjusts high and low voltages to safe levels, so you can work indefinitely during brownouts and overvoltages.

Had a blackout once, well not really as the switch flip on my main fuse box. So throughout the day there was no electricity in the house. My tropical fish nearly die as the tank heater was not on.

So how long does this provide backup power for?

Depends what your running on it

I assume we are talking minutes to allow you to power everything off after saving your work. Wouldn't be running kit off this whilst you wait for power to be restored.

A better alternative?

I would suggest this one for two reasons:

1. It has a higher power rating
2. It is a pure (true) sinewave device, and therefore compatible with all PC power supplies (unlike many of the 'quasi' sine wave inverters out there)

I use this: amazon.co.uk/APC…9BW

I've never had it go to zero on me, when using it for 2 monitors and a laptop. Generally lasts at least 20mins+

Depends if you can finish your game or not

Thank you for the ups information and comments, gone with this as works for me with the plugs and no need to change cables and saved me money, also was a 550va, which I assume to be its strength?!, will use it to replace some surge protectors which I thought where the bits we needed at the time...... !!

I've had the 700va version of the BE550G for years, it's currently running 3 Microservers/Switches/Routers etc. with a max draw of around 250w and doing fine.

The most useful feature of the APC's the ability to control the beeping around a schedule. With other UPS's a power outage at night would cause a beep, not good for sleeping!

You do not need pure sine wave output unless you're running a very old computer or sensitive equipment. PC's work fine with even a non AVR output.

I purchased an AVR UPS for my Projector and Plasma as a fuse trip blew the HDMI port on my projector and fried my HDMI matrix switch.

I've been considering getting a UPS for a while. I'm wondering however......obviously 99% of the time they're running, they're not needed as such, but the battery is no doubt constantly trickle charging. Anyone any idea how much electricity these things consume/waste when they're not in use? I've tried searching but all I can seem to find is efficiency rates for when they're actual in use (ie a power cut)...so basically wondering how much extra in running costs these end up being

my 2000va model has a constant 20w draw when nothing is plugged in.
