    @Try3


    how much does it provide though then? What would the A need to be for it to work? So you are telling me if wouldn't even charge my laptop is turned off? Or it might work but its just if you are using it while charging it won't work?



    Okay thanks for that information. Then im not going to bother with that then. I thought it looked way too good to be true.

    Hey all. So i think i will just buy the UPS 1500va/900W for now. Good decision or not? If so, i will make the purchase soon and then let you all know how it works.
    Not adequate.

    Well I bought it... waiting to receive it now. There doesn't seem to be any good option for me since the car battery or inverter people say to avoid it because im in a studio apartment.

    Car battery now produces low hydrogen as they use gel instead of liquid acid.
    Boat batteries are totally safe.

    Well I have heard of boat batteries. But no one mentioned to me earlier about it.



    Hey all just received the UPS. I'm looking at the instructions and it says i need to charge it first for 8 hours. I took a look at a video online youtube for my model cyberpower 1500va/900w and a videosay UPS when bought... they are shipped where there is no power at all to prevent it from turning on during shipment. Can someone here confirm this is true for all new UPS bought online?


    Also, the instruction say


    Plug the ups into a 2 pole, 3 wire grounded receptable (wall outlet). Make sure the wall branch out is protected by a fuse or circuit breaker and does not service equipment with large electrical demands... e.g air conditioner, copier etc.




    Okay so i want to make sure of this before i plug it into an outlet.



    I have 2 electric outlets in the wall near my computer desk. I have a surge protector that is connected to one of the outlets. The other outlet is not used at the moment. In that surge protector, i have 2 monitors, laptop charger, modem/router and a landline phone connected to it. I have about 1 outlet that is not used at the moment on the surge protector. Basically everything i have connected is connected to the surge protector.



    So whenever i have to charge my UPS and right now of course to charge it up, do i plug it into the power surge? Or do i plug it into the other wall outlet that i have? Or does it not matter? I was going to connect it to the wall outlet but my concern would be if i connect it to the wall outlet and when its charging... say i have a power outage, would there be risk of damage to the UPS? Or none at all?



    But I then thought plugging it into the surge protector for 8 hours would be better idea because the surge protector protects it? Or is there a risk to connecting the UPS to the power surge because i have a ton of things connected to it? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I don't want to plug it into the wrong outlet and then if something goes wrong, I would not be happy. Once i get an answer, i will connect the UPS for 8 plus hours.



    Thanks all.

    hopefully all your wall outlets are grounded and UPS has own protection circuit so plug it anywhere and let form and charge battery. No power cut would damage it, after all, that's what it's made for.

    What does it mean wall outlets are grounded? The wall outlet is about 3 feet from the floor. I would be putting the UPS on the floor and connecting to it using the long cable. So that is good? Thus connect it to wall outlet?

    So connect it directly to a wall outlet for 8 plus hours... then unplug it correct? Thus there is surge protection in the UPS so it protect it if anything?
