Today, I’ll show you images of the APC Back-UPS PRO 1500 Uninterruptible Power Supply.
I got this backup battery for 2 main reasons:
- To protect my equipments
- To maintain them running if a power blackout occurs.
I got it on Amazon and it is currently handling 600-700W of power with no issues at all and gives me an estimate 5 to 8 minutes of runtime. Please keep in mind this number can be increased as this UPS supports a supplemental battery which extends the runtime. I’ll be looking at that soon, just to be safe, even if I haven’t experienced prolonged blackouts.
This UPS can handle up to 865 Watts.
Let’s start with the unboxing!
