One of the lowest prices, if not the lowest, I've seen for a BGE50ML.

My first thought was, why not just get a conventional lead-acid UPS for cheaper when they're on sale?

But apparently, when used with low-current devices like routers and wifi endpoints as it's designed for, it can last for hours, compared to conventional UPS's that will use up their juice much more quickly.

Not sure of the physics of this, but this seems to be the application - a long-running UPS for network devices. And other low-draw devices like I dont know, security cameras maybe?

I have a couple of these. They're not the cheapest option but they're nice.

I have an AmpliFi HD setup and this ran my main router for at least a few hours. I was moving things around and apparently jostled the power plug loose without realizing it. I don't know how long it really lasted but at least 3 hours later it was still powered. I woke up to a dead router thinking I had a technology problem, not a pebcak problem.

I can confirm it's 11,400mAh as previously stated.

The idea is that network up-time is probably not as critical when you're gone, which is when you'd want the USB battery pack pulled out of the UPS. It's a very easy removal/reinsertion process and essentially guarantees that you always have a fully-charged battery pack if/when you need one. The battery pack can also be charged with micro-USB while you're on the go.

Again, not the cheapest of options but it's fairly convenient and I think it's quite handy. I just wish it had USB Type-C on it.

This seems like a cool product every time I look at it, but I just dont understand why one would want to remove the battery from a UPS at any time... Seems like it defeats the purpose and that the two devices (a UPS and a portable power pack) should remain separate.

I guess it's for people that don't care if their network is up when they leave the house. I'd rather have two separate units but someone seems to be buying this thing.

I guess its good to have just incase. If you need to move the battery for somewhere else, you can move it quickly.

Anyone know how big the battery is? cant seem to find an maH on the portable...

I don't think it has much to do with lithium vs lead acid. I think it has more to do with the standby losses from larger components in most LA ups because they are designed to supply much higher watts. Notice how the manufacturer of this gives a specification of runtime, not watt hours.. Whenever they do that, it's to hide how poor the watt hours actually are. it's probably next to nothing compared to a lead acid battery.

Nothing wrong with this product if you are going to use as intended, supplying very little power. But then, that begs the question, what am I going to use to keep other stuff going?? It will not be this.

at least lith batteries are designed to be drained very low, lead acid isn't. Like the idea anyway.

So essentially I could plug this to the surge protection side on existing ups and free up 2 battery sockets there for nas and other devices

Nope.

You can make your own batteries, power routers, poe injectors, and cameras.. FOR HOURS... and have the multifunctionality of a portable battery.

I've personally invested in the eventual upgrade to Li-polymer in this tech, as it's underserved in virtually every market worldwide.

This is a helpful comment. It tells me what it can do and helped me to make a judgement that it is overpriced pos.
