This. And the monitoring software for CyberPower has not been impressive to me. I rather like PowerChute's features.
One HUGE problem I have with APC UPSes is they will continue to trickle-charge a bad battery or battery pack. This eventually leads to over-heated and swollen, cracked, or leaking batteries. In some units this makes it impossible to remove the batteries without disassembling the unit.
ya I just did that a few months ago with a 1500VA 900 watt rackmount, it was a interesting "treat"
excuse me it was the 1kw version with its irritating fumble though a menu to shut it of feature heh, luckily they dont go south very often, and ~800 bucks for UPS vs like what 200$ for all new replacement batteries is not too bad
I doubt I would bother with it on small models though
