    Good price. Also, you can add insurance to the delivery and still costs $99.

  •  

    I get charged $15 for shipping on checkout?

    EDIT: Nevermind, gets deducted from the total.

    •  

      yep, it applies the coupon BOXINGDAY21FS automatically and deducts shipping cost at the checkout

  •  

    how good are they and how long do they last on a MacBook Pro?

    •  

      Dunno. But on a laptop probably a good hour or more.

      This is a UPS, it is kept plugged in and is made for keeping devices that require constant power running for a short while during a power outage. It is not meant to be taken with you and used like a battery bank with a laptop. You may as well just keep the laptop plugged in to the wall instead of connecting it to this UPS and connecting the UPS to the wall, since the laptop already has its own built in battery.

      MacBook Pro’s already have a battery in them.
      This would be better for your router & modem.

      Just be aware that if you are on HFC NBN this type of connection tends to go down during a power outage, and a UPS won’t necessarily help.

        Just be aware that if you are on HFC NBN this type of connection tends to go down during a power outage, and a UPS won’t necessarily help.

        UPS is meant to allow you to shutdown gracefully, not keep working. So the connectivity of the NBN shouldn't make any difference to its intended use.

      The specs suggest 1min under full load. They are meant to be used to allow a graceful shutdown. They can also condition mains power if there are peaks and troughs.

      Why would you need a ups for Mac? It will anyway have 3-4 hours battery backup on its own

      UPS is needed for devices which doesn’t come with it’s own battery backup like NAS, Router etc

      •  

        Thanks. I normally leave my Mac on during the night to backup my iDevices. So I can plug MacBook and router in to ensure no power interruptions.

          Note that this isn't pure sinewave (unlike much of their range)

          According to CyberPower themselves:

          You will need a UPS with sine wave technology if you want to plug-in the following:

          • Apple iMac Computers
          • Computers and Equipment that are Energy Star® or 80 PLUS® efficient systems using Active PFC power supplies.
        • +1 vote

          The power would have to go out for long enough for your macbook to completely drain it's battery in order for the UPS to do anything, and by that time your router would have already drained the entire battery in the UPS, so there wouldn't be anything left for the laptop. So for this use case just get the UPS for the router and just plug the macbook into the wall (preferably with a surge protector).

    Great for connecting to a NAS/router/Wi-Fi for riding through brief power interruptions.

    I am looking for a UPS for the synology DS920+.
    How this one compare with CyberPower BRICs 700VA/420W ? Does this one a good fit ?

    •  

      Same boat and bought it for 920+ as well.

      I prefer BR700ELCD model as its slightly superior model with slightly better power (390w vs 420w) and additional 3 adapter (3 vs 6)
      However, the lowest price for that model at present is $149
      For my need for NAS + Router I think 390w is good enough as it will give about 30-35 mins backup

      •  

        Thank you very much.
        Then this one will be good enough for me.

    Would this be suitable for use with gaming consoles while they are in rest/sleep mode?

    • +2 votes

      I think so, as per this blog:

      https://www.gamesradar.com/au/ps5-standby-mode/

      PS5 draws 0.5 watt, PS4 8.5 watt and Xbox aone 15.7 watt on standby mode

      Going by this it should give standby power backup for about 3900 minutes, 229 minutes and 124 minutes respectively for PS5, PS4 and Xbox one

    Bought one for my home server. Keen on the protection and UPS backup to avoid damage to server components.

  •  

    Bought one after apc battery life dropped to a few minutes. Works much better with proper options and lcd control.

    •  

      I couldn’t confirm but I think with this CyberPower model the battery is even replaceable quite easily

    Thanks OP!

    Even I just got an APC from Umart but this one could be used for somewhere else.

    Noob question but does the 390W mean you can't connect higher than 390W draw from all 3 outlets combined?

    • +1 vote

      Yep. It's the maximum amount of juice this can supply. Keep in mind that at full load a UPS would last probably 1 min or so.

  • +1 vote

    Excellent! I already have one on my DS918+. According to the display it runs for 39 min. Long enough for a safe shutdown when required.

    Bought the 2nd one for a remote backup NAS.

  •  

    does this ship from China?

    •  

      No, its local stock

  •  

    Thanks. Bought one for my nas. Been tracking this one for a while.

  •  

    Thanks, ordered one.

  •  

    Do these offer surge protection? My NBN modem has blown up 3 times in the last 2 months (literally 3/3) from lightning storms (not even a direct strike) resulting in me being out of internet while I wait for the NBN guy to rockup and replace the crappy Netcomm NTD, Looking to minimise downtime, would this help?

    •  

      Yes, most UPS have surge protection.

  •  

    Also don't seem it was mentioned.
    With video surveillance cameras.
    Ensure the switch box outside has a lock to it.
    If someone is trying to break in, they shut the power to the house down from the switch box = no video, alarms (no back up battery) etc.
    So a UPS would keep the video surveillance and network running in case of power outage.

    •  

      What lock would you recommend from Bunnings ? TiA

      •  

        I used the combination one so I don't need a key and have to basically get the thickest steel lock loop you can fit. Not like travel suitcase mini ones.

        Normally pliers and bolt cutters would cut trough thin locks like butter.

        •  

          All the combination locks I've seen at Bunnings can be easily decoded with minimal skills.

          •  

            @Trance N Dance: Yeah just heard.
            Might have to change it.
            It works more like a deterrent really but yeah I'll change it soon

      •  

        Don't buy Bunnings ones. Buy an approved Energex lock as they need to access the meeter. Unless you have a smart meter. Https://www.energex.com.au/home/our-services/meters/energex-...

  •  

    Dang it's saying out of stock.

  •  

    Damn missed this - any other alternatives that are recommended?

  •  

    Has anyone actually bothered to replace a battery on any home UPS? Seems like the batteries cost almost as much as a new unit.

    •  

      TBH - that's why I got this one. I've got a CyberPower 1300VA jobby that has done it's work, and can't find replacement batteries.

    •  

      I replaced some batteries in a couple of 600VA UPS systems, I think they were like 12V 6AH, just took a single battery each and I think I paid like $30 a pop.

      They do seem to be ridiculously expensive though.

    •  

      Replaced batteries twice in my 1000VA APC that was around 10 years old. Still works.

    •  

      You can buy unbranded battery packs on eBay very cheaply - you'll need to work out the part number of your existing battery.
      As an example, I bought this a few months ago with an eBay Plus 20% discount for about $70 - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/APC-RBC48-UPS-High-Rate-34W-Batt...

  •  

    Just got mine. Installed it to protect my beloved Series X and PS5. I feel like an IT Professional protecting mission critical systems.

    •  

      Why would you need a UPS for consoles? Cheaper surge protector would of made much more sense.

      • +1 vote

        The consoles are basically PC's. They are very prone to the same issues that would affect PC's.

  •  

    Just had a power outage now and the UPS did not switch over to battery quick enough so my PC just turned off. At least I know I can power my pc in standby for 45 minutes after it cuts power but that’s pointless.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I didn’t actually try turning the power off manually to test it before.

    •  

      It should switch instantly - your PC definately shouldn't be losing power during the switchover.

      Is it broken ? Can you reproduce the fault if you just switch off mains power to test ?

      •  

        I just tried switching it off at the mains and the PC stayed on and it switched to battery seamlessly.

        Weird with the actual power outage it didn’t work as expected. I was drawing about 315W at the time and the battery showed full bars.

        •  

          Could have been a brown out rather than blackout. Sometimes UPS don't trigger if power is still there but low, and PC stops working as below input for PSU.
