We need a UPS

2020-08-21 16:35:07.776514+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

We need a UPS. I have an old APC that needs new batteries. I think I can get gel cells from Electronics+ down in San Rafael, but I'm also wondering if there's an inverter/charger+flooded batteries I can get more locally solution that'd have a longer time between replacements.

Ummm... I strongly recommend replacing the entire UPS unless it's a high-grade model; I've had issues with the electronics going bad after several years of operation. It's really annoying when the thing fails on you.

Don't know if you're a Costco member, they have some fairly hefty consumer models for $100.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
