lowest price I have seen for this. maybe others can chime in

still overpriced for the amount of power you get, but I guess if you need that portability factor then this gives you a 2 in 1 function that no one else seems to have. personally I prefer to have a UPS though and then those USB powered battery boosters which are cheap enough these days

this is a very good deal tbh

i like this little ups as a cable modem backup

it has a lot of flexibility as long as you don't buy it expecting that it will run your PC & monitor through a blackout. that's not what it is designed to do.

also the little removable battery is great for an emergency like when your kid is leaving but forgot to charge her phone. you can just pop the battery piece with the usb ports out.

Good price, IMO. A while ago (Feb. 2016) I ordered a couple of small UPSs for a bit less than this ($20) from OfficeDepot. I like to have the phone charger by my nightstand plugged into one, and the cable router. If I'm counting on my phone to charge overnight, it'll still get a good charge. Nice to have wifi even when power is out, too.
The fact that this has the battery in a removable portable form is very appealing. I think that the addition of usb ports on that removable battery is a big step forward for these small UPSs.
Haven't really looked at buying any recently, so I don't know how common it's been.

Is this sufficient to work with an NVR for home security? The 2-hour backup power in the description, what is that rated with? A smartphone? Router? NAS? Laptop?

Why would anybody need a backup power supply to their modem/router. You will actually be transfering files from one laptop to another when the power goes out?
So you can finish a cloud backup or so you can send remote shut down commands / verify automatic ones were executed properly

Surge Only Mode
The battery can be removed and the UPS will continue to provide surge protection for the
connected AC devices. When the battery is removed the POWER button LED will illuminate
amber. In this mode the USB port will continue to provide charging power for smartphones and
other USB devices.
The price isn't that bad considering something like the Anker Powercore 10000 is $25. You don't get the QC but if you're at home you could always plug a QC brick into it.

My FiOS ONT has a battery backup as well. Doesn't last long, but that combined with this and my internet stays on when the power goes out. It's also great to just make sure your hardware doesn't shut down and require a reboot in the event of a few second power outage.

It's rated for 84VA or 50W. So the answer is, it depends. Something like this Lorex [costco.com] uses 4.5W/20.5W/24W for 8ch/16ch/32ch. The popular 8TB Seagate Red HDD, if installed, draws 0.7-6.4W. If the cameras are POE they will be another 5.4W each. So 8ch + 8 cameras + HDD is pushing it at 48.4-54.1W, but 8ch + 6 cameras + HDD would be 37.6-43.3W, which should be okay. The unit will shut off if overloaded, so you probably don't want to push it. I always try to stay below 80% capacity with UPSes.

Runtime is listed at 33.2 min @ 50 Watts and 1 hrs 3 mins @ 25 Watts.

The efficiency isn't too bad across the board.

Load..........Efficiency
25%...........78.7%
50% ..........88.1%
75%...........91.7%
100%.........93.6%

I've had DSL internet and I've had cable internet and in general they were both available during power outages.
