My whole system is currently drawing 170 watts from the UPS, which includes 2 monitors, computer, 2 routers, and a few other small items, so it should give me at least a half hour to shut everything down, and if you install the USB cable and software, it will shut down automatically when it gets low.
My computer alone draws over 300 Watt. I had to upgrade my APC 550VA to a Cyberpower 1000VA cause my computer who draw too much power for the APC to handle.

What did you measure it with? I used both one of my Kill A Watt power meters, and the power meter built into the CyberPower UPS. Also, I agree that those small 550VA UPS's can be a little underpowered for many people, like gamers with power hungry video cards. I use small UPS's for things like routers and security cameras. I use a 1500VA on my sub-200 watt computer system.

Basically measured it with a Kill A Watt meter and smart plugs like the Wemo Insight and Samsung Smartthings plug. My computer would shutdown/restart when my computer is rendering 3D graphics and using all 12 cores. 6 core per CPU and 2 CPU. Haha...

That would do it. That needs a bigger UPS than 550VA. Mines just a regular, older i7 with built in graphics. Fast for what I do on my home PC, which is rarely anything that needs much horsepower. I do use some SDR (Software Defined Radio) apps that use some CPU, but I still have plenty to spare. And I don't do anything graphics intensive.

I originally purchased this unit for a gaming PC and ended up returning it for the CP1500PFCLCD model that has better compatibility with Active PFC Power Supplies.

There was a louder than normal hum with this model when operating on battery power that was eliminated with the replacement model.

I would highly recommend both units but make sure it's recommended for your use case.

Cyberpower's phone rep was very knowledgeable and helpful in recommending appropriate hardware, and what to expect with each choice.
I bought a CP1500PFCLCD about 8 years ago for my living room TV/HTPC and it's held up flawlessly until recently when everything connected to the UPS would suddenly shut off about once every 2-3 days. I thought it was going bad, but it was just the batteries going bad and the self-test wasn't catching it. I replaced the batteries for about $71 (OEMs) and it's fixed. Great unit overall, really took me by surprise when I saw the thing was 8 years old.

Anyone know if the USB ports stay powered on during power loss? Could be a way to keep an rPI powered on during power loss ?

That sounds like under-powered PSU or possibly overheating issue. Unless there was simultaneous power outage, UPS wouldn't matter.

A 550VA isn't a 550 Watt inverter. More like a 330 to 350 Watt inverter. Had to account for Power Factor. Mad

It's not the PSU. I could hear the APC UPS click when my computer reboots or shuts off.

Swap out the APC 550VA for a 1000VA Cyberpower and everything is running great. I don't blame APC. It's just that I got an underpower UPS for my computer. Didn't realize a 550VA UPS is only 330 Watts.

I assume simulated sine wave isn't ideal for PCs correct? I have the CP1000AVRLCD and it'll just cut off anyway, despite having the UPS. Even replaced the battery since it said battery capacity error.
It should be ok for not old active pfc psu.

I have no issue at all. My seasonic x 750w( reach milestone expired warranty of 10 years) Would have coil whining when running on ups batt. It has been running since late 2009.

Those my experience on seasonic active pfc psu. And your experience would be different 😁

I haven't had good luck with Simulated Sine Wave with my PC. I've got a Pure Sine Wave from CyberPower for my server in the basement, and for my desktop in my office - and both have been great, for either longer outages - or just blips.
From what I've read - it depends on the device. I don't know the science behind it.

I've been in the market for a smaller UPS to tuck in my office closet - where my switch and IOT devices live, but I still don't know if I need a Pure Sine Wave, or if a simulated will do.

edit: Active PFC is what requires you to have a pure sine wave UPS (Or a UPS designed for PFC): https://www.cyberpowersystems.com...-wave-ups/
I have good luck with seasonic active pfc psu running on simulates sine ups.

Total having 4 seasonic psu: 2 of X and 2 of GF ( phanteks amps rebranded)

Dont get trick woth VA. You should look on the ups chart. How manu watts the ups can provide. Your apc ups can not provide enough watts

Good question... after researching parts, I was wrong... and here is why.

They are using two Leoch 12v 9Ah batteries [amazon.com] in parallel for a total of 18Ah at 12v for a total of 216 Wh, that would convert to 1.8 Ah and 192Wh at 120v before loss., which theoretically gives you about 11 minutes on full load at the rated 900w output before loss.

As well, they are using a dual use transformer that as near as I can tell, puts out a maximum of 40 watts, that as stated, requires 8 hours to charge batteries. The same transformer also converts to 120 volt output from batteries.

So, the 1500 watt input is not to charge the batteries, but is the run through to outlets when not on backup power from batteries. At least that makes sense to me.
Was going to type something to correct the other post mentioning an hour of run time, but this covers it. If it's got two 9ah batteries in it then you've got a few minutes to save and power down just about any computer system. One should not be planning on using this for actual run time... and the VA rating method of these stupid things drives me crazy.

9ah batteries are good since the batteries are so common, and before you know it they'll need replaced.

Is this good for powering a desktop, router, modem, TV, monitor, laptop, and a few other things? I really just wanna get rid of my old power strip and have something like this to protect my electronics.
