Featured Comments

Disregard the previous comment about requiring a pure sine wave for computers. Computers work fine with modified or simulated sine waves. You only really are required to have a pure sine wave for things like medical devices or things that are very sensitive to the current.

Things like speakers could 'buzz' or the picture on the computer monitor can look fuzzy if it switches to to the backup and your power goes out, but it's not the end of the world. IMO you have other things to worry about than listening to your home entertainment system if the power is out.

The sine wave stuff only comes into play when you are on the battery backup power. The sine wave you get while getting power from the wall will be whatever/however clean your power company provides.. which I assume for most people you will not be on the power backup for 99.99% of the time. If you need a UPS, I wouldn't skip out on this just because it isn't a pure sine wave.


From a quick search, this is a good deal as with other APC units they require proprietary batteries, but this one you can use generics to replace the batteries when they go bad in a few years.

Bruh, EVERYTHING has that. Batteries have lead, that's why it's on there.

This is a great discount and I was about to pull the trigger but after looking deeper, it says that it's not pure sine wave Frown

Edit. Turns out I don't really need true sine wave for a high end workstation PC so I bought this.

Correct, the APC sine wave model you would want instead is the BR1500MS2. Been a while since there's been a deal unfortunately…

looked again...

If your computer's PSU has Active PFC (pretty much any decent PSU made in the last decade will), you want a Pure Sine Wave UPS.

Based on that knowledge, I don't even know what the intended use for the PSU in the OP is. For things other than a PC, I guess.

I've used a simulated Sine Wave APC UPS with my PC which does have a nice PSU with Active PFC and it's been fine for a couple years now through plenty of black and brown outs.

I have this 1500 UPS with just a Cable Modem wifi gateway plugged into it.It gives us a day of wifi internet and phone when there is no power for all the laptops & tablets.

Specs are very similar to the regularly priced $149.99 1500 VA CyberPower model at Costco
CyberPower 1500VA/900Watts Simulated Sine Wave UPS Battery Backup with Surge Protection | Costco
though I can't tell if the Costco one has replaceable battery.

My guess is that these UPS units will come down in price because the LiFePo4 solar generators will basically do the same thing (act as a UPS), sans communication with the computer.

Thanks - that's what I'm here for! I have a cyberpower unit - but need something separate for modem/wifi equipment.

Edit:


Do you know if the unit turns back on after power is restored? I read somewhere that there was a model that requires you to press it back on. Not sure if it was this or one of those "generator" type batteries.

Saw this while checking out

Code:

WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm - www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
Will wait and see if Costco will have CyberPower again on sale.

Bruh, EVERYTHING has that. Batteries have lead, that's why it's on there.
