Great Expansion Battery

Byron S., Newegg

Deep cycle batteries instead

Eliot L., Newegg
20 May 2010
  • Summary: I bought two deep cycle boat batteries and hooked them up to my APC UPS. I took this off and now instead of 80 minutes of backup time, I now have 12 hours of backup run time. I am thinking of adding two more deep cycle batteries so I can get it up to one full day of backup power.
  • Pros: Good capacity, decent backup time.
  • Cons: Not long enough backup time.

More Power, More time

  • Summary: This thing is heavy, about 34lbs. Don't drop it on your foot. System- MSI K9A2 Plat Mobo with AMD Phoenom 9850 Black edition Dual X1950 XTX uber Edition Video 2 wd Raptor 80GB Raid 0 Coolermaster Real power pro 550 watt cont. PSU 4 GB ocz Reaper HPC DDR2 1266 Sceptre 24 inch widescreen LCD
  • Pros: This and a battery expansion pack for the back ups RS/XS line. In my case it was a Back ups 1500 xs. The ups worked fine until the 24 inch monitor, dual video cards ect were added to the system. The reserve cap. was too low at full load. resulting in little to no on time. This battery jumped the ...
  • Cons: As will all batteries from APC they are proud of it. Tho considering the saize and the fact that the back ups RS 1500 is still 289.00. it isn't too bad.

good upgrade for APC RS/XS 1500 UPS

Rebekah C., Newegg
10 December 2008
  • Summary: Make sure you understand this is only an upgrade for an existing UPS to give it additional runtime. This is not usable as UPS itself and has no outlets.
  • Pros: More than doubled the runtime of my RS1500. Doesn't take up much space.
  • Cons: Batteries inside this unit are not replaceable if they fail.
