Why Do I Need A UPS?
UPS systems help protect from data loss and potential hardware damage. UPS systems provide battery backup power to keep electronic devices powered during short power outages and provide enough runtime to gracefully shut down electronics during extended outages.

Tips for Sizing Your UPS
- In order to have your UPS run properly, your UPS has to be large enough to support all of the equipment you plan to plug in
- Find the capacity you need by calculating the load of your connected equipment. The load is the combined amount of power each of the devices use.
- To find the load you need, make an equipment list, including the total watts each piece of equipment requires to run properly.
- Add together all of the wattage needed for your connected equipment. The wattage for the UPS needs to be higher than the combined wattage of all of your connected equipment.
Simulated Sine Wave Output
This UPS uses simulated sine wave output to generate a stepped, approximated sine wave to supply cost-effective battery backup power to equipment that does not have Active PFC power supplies.
Keep your electronic devices protected in a variety of environments with battery backup and surge protection.
This UPS is equipped with audible alarms to help identify conditions which may affect operation, such as overloads and low battery.
Connect your UPS via USB cable to your computer and install the management software to automate a graceful shutdown when there’s a power outage.

OK, I appear to be one of the early adopters for this product & so far so good.
I have the 450W 800VA model.
Power cord & plug: right angle plug with the prongs rotated to allow easy access to the 2nd outlet = good. Power cord is about 6 feet = good
Casing is some grade of ABS plastic, it feels & sounds kind of thin, but as I an mot intending this thing to be a foot rest or a doorstop that will get impacts I am not concerned. Plastic finish is pretty good.
The battery comes already connected to the internal power cords - which I did not expect, I was thinking it would ship like APC units do where you open up the battery compartment & connect it yourself, which is a safety in shipping thing, but it was not the case. In the 450W unit you get a 9Ah 12V SLA battery. It looks like a normal standard battery that I can replace at some point in the future when it quits.
Plenty of outlets on this thing, which is a pro & a con. Pro - there are lots of them, con, this makes them pretty close together & so if you have any slightly larger power bricks you are plugging in, you might be forced to use every 2nd outlet & reduce the number of effective outlets you get. This is a potential issue for some. I had enough outlets available for my needs, but I did have to alternate some of them & my power bricks are not that big (like the one I need for my Amazon Fire TV etc....)
The handbook that comes with it is OK, not great, it does fail completely, to mention that there is downloadable software that can be used to change settings on the device. Download it! The software kind of feels like the APC software, but it has a few more features that you can adjust, which is nice. I turned off the alarms as I didn't want them, it also shows you a battery health & anticipated life, given the draw on the unit at that time. The battery life will vary dramatically depending on what is plugged in. (Some people apparently cannot do simple maths and cannot understand that if this is a 450W unit, why a 1000W load is a problem.....)
One thing that might be annoying & it might just be my unit, when I plugged it in, I get a faint, but audible transformer buzz from it. It is irritating, but in my application I am putting the unit in a location away from where I would be normally sitting so it is not a concern, however if this is plugged in next to your workspace, the buzz might get on your nerves. Again, this might be a one off, but I noticed it immediately.
Overall, so far it is looking like a good value for the money if you make sure to load it within it's capacity rating.
One thing I have not yet found out is if it will auto restart after a power outage & full battery depletion, as I want it for a router & modem and it would be a pain if it does not auto restart. I might have to try to drain it fully by some experimenting & then re-apply power & see what happens (when I get a few hours to waste...)
Revision from 5 star down to 3 star Date 8/5/18
A significant need for me with a UPS is the ability to restart itself after a power failure & battery depletion, which no one could answer me on this device. Today I learned that it does NOT auto restart after power depletion. We had a multi hour long brownout today, during which the UPS did perform flawlessly, for the duration of it's capacity, keeping my application alive for a nice long time. It did perform as intended and took over power supply when the input voltage dropped below a certain threshold (settable in the software). However, after the full line voltage came back and the battery was depleted & had shut the unit off, it did not restart. I had to manually press the button to restart it. This is a failure to me as I need the auto restart feature. My APC unit elsewhere did everything as it should have done & auto restarted itself, so as a consequence, I am ordering a new APC unit right after I type this, to replace this Amazon UPS.
This is a dealbreaker for me, it may not be for you, your application is yours alone, as it mine & mine needed something different. I went from 5 to 3 based upon this, but this unit is a really rock solid 3 star unit for all its other functions, so if you do not need an auto restart, I still say buy this device. If you do need auto restart, don't buy it.
I am actually pretty sad to say this, the unit had so much promise for me.
I get no compensation for my reviews, you get the truth as I see it with no bias, hopefully this was helpful. I also tried to answer a bunch of the unanswered questions people posted on this device to help out.
So for power outages where the battery does not get completely drained, you do not need to restart or reset the ups, it switches back to mains automatically.
It arrived yesterday. I plugged in my desktop and two 27" monitors into the battery backup slots and let it charge overnight. So this morning (~18 hours later) I decided to pull the plug and give the system a test. I ran youtube videos in the background and kept opening and closing programs AutoCAD and Revit programs in the background. The computer and both monitors ran for 16 mins and 6 seconds before losing power. That's AMAZING! With the reviews I had read, I thought I'd get 10-60 seconds. But 16 minutes of power backup! I've attached a picture of my computers power specs for comparison. Even if you custom built a computer 5 times the power of mine, you'd still get over 2 minutes and that's on the 600VA.
