    Unit works well for keeping a couple of low power devices (eg. Router, NAS) running during a power outage.

    Has been $65 before: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/425014

  • Ok but what would I use this for. Any use for someone going on holiday for a month?

    Say If the power went out but had my Xiaomi home gateway alarm on

    • Chief, it's just a battery that keeps devices on during a blackout for X amount of time depending on power consumption

      • That's what I meant cos I never had experience with these before. Thanks for your help aye

        That's all I need it for, to keep my router and cameras on until the main power gets restored. So even 30minutes or 60 minutes would help.

          This one would probably last max 30 minutes. You can check here, eg try with 100watts load and see how long it will last; http://www.sizemyups.com

          • @tor: Cheers mate will check, I checked my power load and it's running at 10W. So guessing 40-50minutes.

            • @adrianhughes1998: IMO it's More likely it will last at least 6-12 hours with only 10w load maybe even full 24hrs depending on efficiency and how much the UPS itself uses, 700VA for all intents and purposes is '700watts peak power' so afaik you could theoretically run for 70 hours if it were 100% efficient and the UPS used nothing at all but they usually have fans and micro controllers and LED's etc and converting DC-AC is not particularly efficient so I think half of that or maybe a bit less is a more reasonable guess

              • @CheapoJohnno: Dunno I get what you're saying but the graph on their website if you follow their finger to the 10W mark it only shows 50 minutes on the curve. Will see when it turns up

              • @CheapoJohnno: the power factor (pf) seems to be only 0.5, so actual wattage is only 350watts (va*pf)

    • My friend’s house got fire during his vacation because of his ups

      • :(

      • Fortunately they had insurance, right?

        • yes, they had, fortunately

      • How old was the UPS?

      • i'm guessing it was a CyberPower?
        We've had a couple of 3kva units <6months old beeped then caught fire (although it was contained inside the metalic box cover).
        Never touching another CyberPower unit.

  • Seems they're located in Upper Mount Gravatt, postage to the same (heh) is $7.70. Maybe one might be able to contact them to arrange pickup… maybe.

  • Only $6 off, less than 10%

  • pretty good price, considering replacement battery cost $54 ~%69.


    not same model but I have a UPS hooked up My iMac and extra monitor.

    recent power outage (not common but 2 or 3 times a year) definitely given me time to same 2 hours of editing work.

    its good to have around house.

    I just replace my own battery once it dies normally it last 2 years.

    my 2 cents.

    addition: damm $37.91 for shipping to WA. that kills the deal. and it has been cheaper before… DANG!

    • Replacement battery is listed at $180. The search results you gave are not for the same model.
