APC Back-UPS BN450M Battery Backup, 6 Outlet, 450VA/255W - $39.99 @ Office Depot

$39.99

I was looking to pick up some UPS battery backups to provide uninterruptible power for my Netgear Orbi satellite units and this was the lowest priced UPS that I could find currently.

https://www.officedepot.com/a/pro...1000509512

$39.99 (reg. $59.99)

Anybody here know of any OD coupons that I can stack to bring the price down? Can't seem to find any that works for "tech" items.

Battery is user replaceable.

I bought two and had one die within 4 months. Shut off and would not turn back on. RMA was painless though.

this good for a average gaming PC and 2 monitors?
How long would it hold up while running on it.

A few minutes. These are made to give you enough time to shut your computer down when the power goes out, not to allow you to continue gaming. Unless the outage is very short.

It has a 3 year warranty. I assume that covers the battery. But how long does a battery last? And I assume it's cheaper just to replace the unit rather than just the battery. Any feedback?

Are you sure this model has user replaceable batteries? I searched for a replacement battery on APC's website and this model doesn't show up as having replaceable batteries.

I have one of these, the battery comes disconnected, you need to open it to connect the battery before you use it (see the user manual). When the battery dies, you just need to get the same capacity and size. Working great protecting my network gear.

I had one. You will need to unscrew the case to replace the battery. No easy pull-n-plug replace method available.

The replacement battery is usually more expensive than just buying a new unit (on sale).

My experience with the stock factory batteries is generally pretty good, I'd say 5+ years. I've had some still working at 8 years. But the warranty of 3 yrs definitely will cover a battery problem over that time. Aftermarket batteries: highly YMMV. I've bought cheap crap ones and some were marginal at first, and dead within less than a year. I would only recommend getting either APC certified from a reputable seller, or you can use "Batteries Plus" which seems to have good quality, I think just 1 yr warranty. As you mention, the cost a good replacement battery will be about the same price as this deal, usually $35-40 for the size typically used here -- as I said you can get $15-20 ones but my experience with those has not been good.)

Does this beep if the power goes off?
I'd rather it not.

Interesting how backups have increase so much in price. Bought the 650VA/350W back in November with no coupons for $30.

Yeah it's so weird how prices seem to come down as one gets closer to the day after Thanksgiving. I've been noticing this trend for several years now. 😂

Not very interesting. That was a Black Friday deal, this is your ho-hum regular non-Holiday sale. Bought a couple of those back then as well. Besides more capacity, it has a 1.5A USB port and data port.

The Cyberpower 425SL for $29.99 from B&H yesterday was the better deal compared to this.
