    How long would it keep a 1000W PC with dual monitors running after a blackout?

    • +1 vote

      1000W PSU or consumes 1000W/h?

      •  

        I have 1000W PSU.
        Don’t know the average wattages used.

      •  

        For 1000W of actual load, you need 1800 VA. Best you measure the peak consumption and size your UPS from there. I have a 1500 VA, for my 850W PC which consumes 400W at the moment. But I also load up my UPS with my 2 monitors, modem, router, chargers, etc.

        •  

          i tried a 600VA and it beeped like mad for 5mins and shutdown whenever i try to game

          i have a 850w psu, but doubt it draws that much. 1500va seems overkill. so im assuming 1000VA would be a good middle ground right

    • +4 votes

      A minute or two I guess, I have a 1500VA UPS that I run my NAS, routers, HomeAssistant Raspberry pi with total power consumption at 45W and it runs them 1 hour 15 minutes. A setup 20 times mine will be much shorter. However I don't think you have a 1000W PC, it takes dual RTX3090 to actually consume 1000W

    •  

      It won't. Max draw is 700VA, so about 700Wper hour. Your system probably draws 1300VA (assuming the PC is running flat out)

    •  

      It won't, it's rated to 390W

      Lol, 1 minute. Which is all you need technically to save your work and shutdown properly. You would want a portable generator if you want to keep gaming.

      •  

        I usually go to park and work. I need a portable charger for my laptop to charge at least50% from 0. Any recommendations?

        •  

          Depends on your laptop? Some of the newer ones can be charged from USB-C. Some powerbanks (need to look up which ones) are capable of charging a laptop on usb-c.

          E.g apparent this one is capable of charging laptops.

          https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/comsol-200....

          Don't actually know how well thou

        •  

          If your laptop support power delivery you can get those pd powerbanks.

    What size UPS would you need to run UDM-PRO, USW-24-POE, 2 x nano-HD AP's, 5 x G4-bullet cameras and a modem for 30/60mins?

    • +1 vote

      I run a 480W Cyberpower (3 years old now), runs a Hikvision NVR, 5x POE Cameras, N40L, NBN Modem, R7000 Router; runs for about 25minutes.

      The N40L is set to power down after 1minute though.

      •  

        out of interest, how are you shutting the N40L down? Do you have the usb port plugged into the UPS and have some monitoring app keeping an eye on it?

        •  

          Yep, connected USB Port, and FreeNAS shuts it down if it detects power outage via the UPS for more than 30s.

    •  

      You have to add up the power draw from all your equipment. Quick google probably lands about 100-150W total. So you theoretically could get 2 and a bit hours from the 390W storage.

      • +1 vote

        mate 390W is the max load capacity, not the consumable energy. This unit will just give 1-2 mins under full load. so 5-10 mins with 100W load.

    • +1 vote

      According to the website: Half Load Runtime ( min ) 10

      That means at 150W power draw expect maybe 15 min if you're lucky

    •  

      I'm using the Cyberpower 900VA (540W) sinewave model, with NAS, switch, modem, USG, desktop PC + monitor and bunch of POE devices UPS is reporting average load of 200W and estimating runtime at 10 - 12 mins.

      I have a 40Ah SLA externally connected to it though, runtime much longer but UPS doesn't know about it.

      •  

        Interesting. I assume it's a hack not an external connector.

        • +1 vote

          Correct. It's this model. The battery door is underneath, so just left it off and ran the cables out, didn't want to make any permanent modification.

  •  

    Surge Energy Capacity: 450 J

    For the price should be better

  •  

    What do people buy these for?

    I have a computer that isn't mission-critical but power surge would damage it right? small investment to protect my 3k PC?

    • +3 votes

      Typically for NAS or other storage systems where a controlled shutdown is preferable. If you just want surge protection there are cheaper options

    •  

      You will need a surge protector power adapter.
      This device is to allow your pc to work during a power outage.

    •  

      I bought it for my home alarm security as I'm a renter. So keeps my cameras and alarms going in case of a blackout for a few hours.

      •  

        My server, desktop and 3d printer all have one.

    •  

      small investment to protect my 3k PC?

      Ding ding ding… tell em what he has won Bob.

  •  

    I've been looking at a new UPS, but wanting rackmount, but oh god they're expensive compared to these tower ones.

    •  

      I know what you mean. Be nice if they had rack mount kits though :)

  •  

    Thoughts using this just for a DS918+ fully populated?

    Could add a Nest Mini/Orbi RBK50/Telstra Gen 2 Modem and Epson WF-3640 Printer which are all on the same shelf in the study…. but probably pointless. Only real concern is the NAS.

    Not concerned with the PC/Monitor tbh.

    Noticed the inputs on the back, are you meant to route Ethernet through it too?

    •  

      @stratbargain says it keeps their Synology (don't know what model) and a modem going for 40 mins on a similar model:

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/8323340/redir

      Lastly, the Ethernet ports are for surge protection: "Communication Protection Ports RJ11/RJ45" (manual)

      Hope that helps.

    This or wait for APC BX700 to go on sale again?

    •  

      What's the benefit of the BX700 over this?

  •  

    Got two of these. One for my router and one for my cctv (nvr is poe in a different room).

    This should do the job to keep my cctv and internet working for quite a few hours?

    I just bought 1200VA CyberPower VP1200ELCD Value Pro 720W Line Interactive UPS for $175-20 delivered via eBay PRESS20 20% discount code seller computer_alliance. After an hour of feature / reviews / price comparison I deemed this unit best for my needs (and eBay 20 percent discount appears genuine in this case)

  •  

    Hey all, I just received my unit this morning from this deal. The unit is refusing to charge and keeps error-ing out and emitting a horrible LOUD tone.

    May i ask if anyone else is facing this issue or is my unit defective?

    •  

      Are any devices attached to it?

      •  

        Yup, i did plug it in to a few low power devices. The battery has drained completely despite it being plugged in the whole time and now it won't charge anymore.

        I've now just left it plugged in with no devices plugged to it - but it still doesn't seem to be charging the battery

    •  

      A bit late to this party, but did you remember to plug in the battery connector? It usually comes shipped with the battery disconnected

      •  

        Thanks, I can't believe i would have bad luck with a UPS device, so happy for any suggestion. I'm waiting for Futu to process the return request i made but i'm undecided whether to actually get a replacement or just a refund.

        I do believe for this unit the battery does come preconnected. There isn't an external connector nor does it say anywhere on the guide that i need to. The UPS detects a battery, and tracks that it is charging, but as soon as it needs to use the battery, it fails. And it fails the battery self test on the app.
