Reliable Battery Backup
- Single-Computer Runtime: This UPS system will support an energy-efficient desktop computer and LCD monitor (75 W load) for up to 90 minutes during an outage.
- Half-Load Runtime: This UPS system will support a 50% load (450 W) for up to 10 minutes.
- Optimized Outlet Array: 5 outlets have both battery backup and surge/noise protection, and 5 have surge/noise protection without battery backup. The 'surge-only' outlets allow you to connect additional equipment without overloading the UPS or reducing the backup runtime available during an outage. Select outlets have extra-wide spacing to accommodate bulky AC adapters without blocking adjacent outlets.
AVR and Surge/Noise Protection
In locations with chronic voltage problems, frequent switching to battery drains reserve power and shortens battery life. This UPS system has a feature called automatic voltage regulation (AVR) that solves the problem. The UPS detects when input voltage is out of bounds and corrects it without using the battery.
All Tripp Lite UPS systems also include built-in surge protection and noise filtering to shield your equipment from destructive transient voltages and electromagnetic (EMI/RFI) line noise.
Data Line Surge Protection
Data lines connected to your equipment represent an unlocked 'back door',allowing surges to enter and damage or destroy sensitive electronic components. In addition to protecting against surges on the AC power line, this UPS system protects your equipment against surges on connected phone, network and coaxial lines
- The RJ45 jacks protect a phone, analog modem, DSL modem or Ethernet network line.
- The coaxial connectors protect a cable TV, satellite or cable modem line.
Multifunction LCD Screen
The illuminated LCD provides easy access to detailed UPS settings and information. The LCD shows a variety of helpful data, including input/output voltage, battery voltage, input/output frequency, load/charge level meters, output load percentage, output load wattage, power status, battery status, AVR status and estimated battery backup runtime in minutes.
Flexible Management Options
There are three ways to manage this UPS system:
1. Use the multifunction LCD screen.
2. Use the HID-compliant USB port and your computer's built-in power management features.
3. Use the USB port with Tripp Lite's free PowerAlert software.

First, I did not notice ANY odor upon opening the box.
Second, It is huge in comparison to APC units I have bought in the past. I was an APC fan until the unit internal systems broke down and would not work with new batteries. I Wanted to try different and narrowed this down to Tripp-Lite and Cyber-Power 1500.
Tripp-Lite is 900 watts. I am running:
-Intel I-7 core processor
-power supply is dynamic 850 WATTS
-32 GBs Ram
-DELL 24 inch LED monitor
-Yamaha Quad speaker with subwoofer
Output is at 10%
Out Watts 90, which is minimal
Estimate backup is roughly 56-60 minutes, which is plenty, given I have a Kohler 20RES 20,000 K (with 200 watt entire house transformer) Generator. I live in Ohio in the country and my local company just randomly tested power and disconnected several homes without warning. I was on the computer when everything when dark. Not good. Then recently, our transform caught on fire. again without warning, and yes, I was computer. I am lucky my computer works at all, hence, reason for generator and buying this unit.
-I recommend before installing, to look at batteries. just unscrew bottom and gingerly pull the front cover off but not too far because wires are connected. You will noticed TWO batteries are required. The support page for Tripp Lite will suggest (as well as in the manual), RBC 51 (two batteries). I suggest you search for RBC 5 battery set. Much cheaper (less than a single RBC 51). Also, I recommend you attempt to pull out batteries to experience the difficulty to replace these batteries. Not bad, but a little tricky.
-the surge/battery protect outlets are on the right side (if you are facing the back side of unit), the non-battery outlets with surge protection only are on left side of unit.
-Inside the box, the Smart 1500 comes with power (3 prong ground non-brick) cord, a 6 foot USB communication Port cord which needs to be longer (like 8-10 foot). Also, I attempted to use the existing USB port cord from my old APC unit and the computer did not recognize the Trip-Lite unit. This could have been fluke but when I used the 6 foot USB Port cord, it worked and showed in tool bar right side icon, charging. Keep in mind it also would show red x as though battery was not recognized. There is no software and no warranty card in English (it was Española).
-when you test the unit, it will drop to 86% battery after testing. Just hold the test button for two seconds. Use mute button to cycle screen like output voltage, output load percent, Etc. when you unit test itself, it automatically will show estimated runtime. It will take about 8 hours to fully restore battery after plugged in so no worries.
-Instead of installing software, use Windows, Linux, Mac power manager. Go to Control Panel or equivalent, go to hardware, go to power options go to ;change plan;. Look close and find: Change Advance Power Settings.; Now, scroll all the way to bottom until you see battery;. Click on the plus sign and make sure you set critical battery warning or equivalent if using other operating systems, to &shut down.
The battery will charge in about 8-10 hours after you plug in. I will update when the next outage occurs and I will update in terms of when the batteries need replaced (supposedly not for 3 years).
I hope this helps for now.
Update: 6/19/20. I bought the Tripp lite UPS almost 5 years ago. I replaced the batteries once after about 3 years. The unit recently died. I was downloading Windows V2004 when everything shut off. I freaked out. The unit showed it had full battery charge but the unit would not turn on. So I unplugged everything and plug the PC and Accessories into a surge. Windows, thank God, kept downloading the huge update. I am grateful it did not shut off during install. OMG. I called Tripp*Lite and talked to a human being, which is nice. He was very helpful. He said the unit died and replacement of batteries would not help. So I purchased another 1500 LCDT. This unit works great during power outage. I mean i have had others that did not switch over fast enough. This unit has worked like a charm for 5 years. I have had several power outages and it just works. I know this is expensive but worth it. When I called the company I talked to a human being who was quite helpful. I love Tripp-Lite!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 30, 2023
(SMELL) I'm now using this unit for 6 months. It never had any burning smell or any smell of any kind - I checked. Furthermore, the unit sits under my desk, so if it had started smelling few weeks or months after it - I'd pick it up given that I sit almost right on top of it.
(NOISE) This was never a concern for me: my Workstation has 10 fans in it and it generates quite a hum. Nevertheless, I can say that I cannot hear this unit no matter how much I try. Even when my workstation is powered down - my SR2016 Switch (which stays on all the time) makes 10 times more noise than this thing does. So - no issue there.
(TEMPERATURE) The unit is a bit warmer to the touch then a regular piece of metal would be in the same room. When I touch my stainless steel trash can that sits right next to my desk I can say that UPS is warmer. Yet I cannot say that it is concerning - the temperature difference is definitely insignificant. For example, UPS is much cooler than, for example, my cradled Western Digital hard-drive.
(PROTECTION) I do not have much to say except - it does the job. Since installing this UPS I did not have a real-life power loss situation, but by disconnecting the power manually I can see that battery picks up the load and does the job. Power loss signal is clear and loud enough to be noticed, but not loud to the point of being obnoxious :) The ability to see how much juice left in the battery when the workstation is powered down is something that I was after ,and this unit does this well.
(OTHER CONSIDERATIONS) I love the fact that this unit has some outlets that are routed through battery and some that are not. For example - I have some things that are not important to run in the event of the power loss- such as desk lamps, computer speakers ,desk fan. Those things are plugged in to the surge protected power outlets on the unit that will be powered down in the event of the power loss and thus will not contribute to the battery drainage. My old BackUPS PRO 1100 did not have this feature, therefore requiring me to keep a separate power strip next to the UPS.
(UNTESTED) Unit also has one RG45 and one COAX protection circuits. I do not use those and cannot speak to the quality of those ports, potential noise level on those circuits, or the protection they offer.
Overall I'm very happy with this unit. I certainly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a home or small office UPS that will not break the bank. Only time will tell how long this unit will last and how much protection it can really offer. I'll try to keep review up-to-date if any new developments occur.

Camaras CCTV x4 (~100w), Smart TV 60" (~180w), Playstation 5 (~215 watts), Home theater con Subwoofer (~200w), en total una carga aprox de 700w, utilizando todos los dispositivos la carga en display muestra una barra a 3/4 de su capacidad, entrando el no-break me ofrece aprox 15-20 min en ese escenario. En un segundo escenario usando solo el sistema CCTV, con una barra de carga mostrada en display en 1/4, me ofreció aprox 1 hora 20 min de respaldo lo cual es excelente. Como recomendación he estado habilitando el no-break al menos una vez a la semana hasta casi vaciar la bateria para mejorar la vida de la misma.
Muy contento con el producto.
En las noches hace un poco de ruido, como si se descargara y volviera a cargar, o algún tipo de testeo automático, pero tampoco es lo suficiente fuerte como para ser molesto.
And about the warrantee??? Well those cost so much for shipping that it may be just faster and cost same price to buy a product from another brand.
*Edit:after contacting support they sent me free of charge 2 units to replace the defective ones. I had to wait today as there is high wind and power fluctuations to see the one of the new one they sent me do the exact same thing: the computer will shut down even when plugged in the battery powered outlet of the ups. And worse of all my third original ups that was working correctly before as far as I knew shut down 2 times today. My 5000VA is always working as it should on the other hand. So I don't know why but these ups just don't do what they are supposed to do...
