The CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD provides battery backup and surge protection
For PCs and other electronics
A desktop UPS with line interactive topology, this CyberPower PFC Sinewave UPS provides battery backup, power protection (using sine wave output), and surge protection for desktop computers, workstations, networking devices, and home entertainment systems requiring Active PFC power source compatibility. The UPS uses Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) to correct minor power fluctuations without switching to battery power, which extends battery life. AVR is essential in areas where power fluctuations occur frequently.

Why You Need It
When power goes out for even a second it can result in data loss and hardware damage which can shorten equipment life expectancy. This battery backup unit provides sufficient emergency runtime power to allow for safe closure of open files and proper shut down of electronics when an outage occurs. In addition, it safeguards electronics from commonly occurring power surges caused by storms, activity on the power grid, or high-powered equipment turning on and off.
Provides backup power and surge protection for home and small office computers, wired and wireless network routers and modems, home theater systems, game consoles, and personal electronics. Safeguards valuable documents, photos, videos, and music files from loss or damage due to power fluctuations and surges as well as uncontrolled equipment shutdown caused by power interruptions.
Power Management Software
PowerPanel Personal Edition software is available free for download with all UPS systems with a USB or serial port. The software features a user-friendly dashboard interface for controlling and monitoring a CyberPower UPS systems. Its advanced functionality includes; runtime management, self testing, event logging and more.

My first impression upon opening the cleverly double-boxed packaging was that the picture size was deceiving. This CyberPower looks large. It's not. It's dwarfed by my standard mid-ATX towers. Eyeballed relative to one, it's about half the width, half the height, and two-thirds the depth. Positively petite for a tower UPS and roughly the size of the APC it replaced were that one upturned. Extras include a short coaxial cable and an RJ-11 phone wire. Build quality seems quite good, with an attractive combination of gloss and matte black plastic. Once booted, the UPS is completely silent with mains power. It buzzes quietly when on battery. There is no internal fan.
That said, let's drill down the major features of the PFC series:
Line-interactive - In the consumer world, there are three major types of UPS units: standby, line-interactive, and double conversion ("online"). Standby runs wall power straight to the device with minimal filtering unless it detects a major voltage change. Then it switches to battery. Line-interactive is the same, except with a filtering transformer between the wall and the device to handle most voltage variations. In an area with dirty power, line-interactive units won't cycle to battery power as often. With clean power, there's no practical difference between the two. Double-conversion means the battery always powers the device and wall power only charges the battery. The isolation is helpful for sensitive things, but less efficient because the wall power is perpetually converted from AC to DC and back to AC.Read more ›
If you have a modern computer and it won't work with the cheaper UPS backup supplies when the power fails it is most likely because your computer has a PFC type power supply which WILL NOT WORK on any type of waveform other than a pure sine wave!
Some people complain that they wish the battery capacity was higher so they can run on battery power for tens of minutes if not an hour but the purpose of ANY UPS in this catagory is to allow the user to safely close their open files and shut down the computer in a matter of a few minutes, not power it for tens of minutes or longer. If you need extended time emergency backup power then you'll need either a backup generator or a bank of batteries running an inverter to supply power to your load.
I have posted a photo of the sine wave output from my CyberPower CP1350PFCLCD PFC Compatible 1350VA 810W UPS when it's running on battery power only and supplying about 175W to 200W of power to my computer and monitor. The waveform was smooth and actually had less distortion than what is coming out of my wall outlet!
Unlike some reviews from a year ago, there was no smell coming from the unit when I unpacked it and no smell when running so if that was a problem in the past they must have fixed it.Read more ›

This unit works great at a fraction of the price of a "True SineWave" UPS I'd use in Server Rooms, and is suitable for workstations equipped with newer / high-end PFC (Power Factor Correction) Power Supplies.
I love the Onboard LCD, which shows a battery meter and a load meter; along with stats like Output Watts -- much like a kill-a-watt would show. You can decide whether to turn off the LCD on idle, or have it always on. I also love the fact that the Alarm can be silenced -- which is a huge blessing if you already know your power lines aren't stable, or if you have a need to intentionally run equipment on battery power for extended periods.
There's a USB and Serial port for monitoring, which (combined with software) can have your Workstation or Server gracefully shut down before all the power is drained. Though, with the LCD-based stats, you can still get all the info you need without a PC hooked up.
The USB Charging Ports in front have enough juice (Amps) for an iPad to charge.
The replacement battery cells are pretty common (go to a shop specializing in UPS Batteries), but "some assembly" is required to connect them to a "Harness/Wedge" between the cells. This is a common design for dual-cell UPSes, so your UPS battery shop may even have pre-assembled units ready for sale.
In sum: I got one for my workstation, and plan to get another for my entertainment room. At this price and the feature-set offered, this is a great buy. Well done, CyberPower.
