BE550 has only 1 wide plug for battery

Coalman, APC
7 March 2013
  • Summary: The BE550 has only 1 wide plug for surg and battery. Design problem because routers, DSL modem and others all have wide plug adapters. Product does not address current network equipment design.

  • Summary: I had to buy this because a fuse vaporized when the recharging transformer blew open. Shame on APC for being so stingey to return the favor I will be not be buying a part from them but from digikey or futurlec.

Worked just fine

Igor, Staples
7 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Got this to backup our on demand water heater just in time for hurricane Irene. Didn't work immediately, but realized that I had to turn it on again. Apparently it goes off automatically for some reason. Once I turned it on, it worked just fine and we were able to have hot showers during our 3 day power outage.
  • Pros: Compact Size, Durable Construction, Green Friendly

One drawback

db, APC
1 July 2010
  • Summary: Three year warranty is a plus! The unit does provide good surge and battery backup protection, but there is one drawback. All 8 outlets are not fully accessible because they are spaced so closely together! Three of the four in each row are close and not usable if your peripherals have the larger 3-prong plugs. Of course many of my printers and add-ons have the big transformer plugs and I didn't think they would fit.
