Much better runtime w/ small load than almost any other UPS
on May 9, 2017
Most UPS designs are optimized for larger loads, and waste a lot of power when tasked with keeping something like a cable modem or phone chager alive. With a 10 watt load (say, a router), this thing will go for FIVE HOURS (or maybe two or three if you have a power hungry modem -- runtime graph is attached). Crazy! For this type of usage, this will blow the doors off much more expensive units. Bought a second and a third to run my wife's fan and our electric horse fence. So cheap, so useful!
If you need maximum runtime, go with the BGE90m and plan on replacing the battery occasionally. If you need maximum battery lifespan, go with the BGE50ML -- its lithium ion battery will live a lot longer than the batteries in the other two units.
