Been thinking about one. How can I tell how long it would keep a gaming laptop and modem/router going for? Sorry been too long since I had to know anything technical like that.

Its a huge backups so prob for a few hours at least if not longer, since its just a laptop/modem/router. Your probably less than 100W total with those, so maybe as much as 12hrs

This is not Pure Sine Wave do not buy this for a medium or high end computer or gaming laptop. High end electronics need Pure Sine Wave only.

You can get Pure Sine Wave ones for like 10 dollars more during sales, do NOT blow all your money on this one because it can fry your entire computer if your power supply can't handle the simulated sine wave this uses

Bought the Cyberpower pure sine wave with same capacity for the same price from Newegg a few weeks ago so the price is so so. It does say Active PFC compatible so I assume that means something. Still, I've used two power supplies on a simulated sine wave UPS and had no issues.

if its just the two of those you are going to plug in. i think it could run the laptop and the modem for about 30 mins to an hour maybe even longer. depending on the voltage of your laptop and modem.

Not pure sinewave, I would advise passing on this unless you're getting this to backup disposable electronics / machines.

Thanks. If I could use it to have the power to use the internet and watch a couple BluRay movies or something like that it would be interesting.

I guess I will have to get a generator if I want that. We don't have a ton of power outages where I am at except in the fall when a storm with strong winds will cause tress to down power lines etc. and it may be many hours until fixed depending on how bad. So I have hesitated to get a generator for just that due to the cost.

a generator would be a good fit. UPS are basically there to help you save your work and not to get electronics shorted when there is a blackout.

What's the point of having a UPS on a laptop? They have a much better battery built-in. A modem depends... Like a 4G modem running on usb power would last a very long time. A satellite modem, or a switch with 5 ethernet cables could use a lot of power

Well this laptop has very poor battery life. It has an overclocked CPU and GPU and is a high end gaming laptop. So the battery power is not very much.

But as is obvious I need to get a small generator if I want to have what I want.
I used to have a UPS for my desktop for the reasons they are made. To allow time to shut things down etc. but every time I experience a power outage I would like to at least watch some BluRays and I don't need a modem for that. Though it would be better to have internet access too of course.

Not sure of the power draw on the modem/ router. I have that as it was part of a promo.
Still I get download speeds of 180Mbps. Things just are not very fast without power...

I got a bunch of rack mount, enterprise grade industrial UPS boxes at a state surplus auction for next to nothing. they will replace the entire box instead of the batteries usually. take one of those, connect 4-8 car batteries instead of the little ones they have inside. you can use that, a little weedeater or chainsaw engine spinning an old car alternator to make a whole house inverter generator that can last forever on minimal gas. best part is the pure true sinewave output that only the most expensive generators offer. i would stay away from anything with"modified sinewave emulation" or anything. it will screw up sensitive electronics. lmk if u want details on making that generator and I'll track down the YouTube video for u
