- 1500w AC load rating / 3000w with some voltage trimming. So call it 1500w max load on the AC outlets
- LIFEPO4 cells
- just under 1000ah, little low for load rating
- AC charge at little under 1kw, no external brick, always a plus. Not sure here if this is a "turbo" mode. also not sure if its a pass through charging, meaning charging while using. Documentation is a little slim on this one.
- Solar charging feels alright to me at 400w max
- I appreciate the use of the "Standby Power Supply" and not UPS in the marketing as they rate the switching at 20ms. Seen too many reviews of "amazing" units with UPS functionality with horrible switching times.

- I could not find any reviews of the unit so that is a little odd to me. Product does appear quite new and I assume no review samples were sent out yet.

- I am attempting a use case for this unit to assist during a power outage to provide clean power, will attempt a charge via an open frame generator to see if it likes that.

Since there are no reviews, it's very hard to judge if it's a "deal" or not

I feel like this should've been posted in the discussions section, not the "hot deals"... 🤷‍♂️

How would this be any better then 2 UPS backups rated for 900W & 1500VA each, such as the CyberPower 1500VA? The total cost would be half of what this unit costs for more wattage, plus the CyberPower are well known and amply reviewed.

If they're using the same Bluetooth module as they were selling as an add on in the summer, it's completely, frustratingly useless.

Hopefully they changed.

UPS is not meant to be used as a "power continuation device" UPS I meant to keep device going in a power outage until you do three things 1. Safely turn off the devices eg computer, server attached to it. 2. Power your diesel generator 3. Reconnect the grid to it.

These devices are mean to store power "almost+give power out after"

These things are powerable you can carry with you, UPS will ring Deep looking for it power to return. I purchased one like an idiot an UPS thinking I could use like a "regular 120v power source" NONONO. These you could.

Weight and portability would be the main differences.

Renogy at 1000wh, the equivalent lead acid UPS running at 12v would need a 83ah battery. That's like a 60lb car battery not including the metal UPS box.

I feel these units are aimed at the campers/remote job site folks.

That would have maybe a 9Ah battery? This thing has nearly 112x as much energy.

Where do you see that? The only battery info I see is "Battery Capacity: 41.6V, 24000mAh / 998.4Wh"
100% on the 9Ah battery with a 3 min run time @ max load for the CyberPower 1500VA. Also it is an line-interactive UPS which means the accepted voltage range can be tweaked a bit, meaning it can possibly charge from a generator and will clean the power a bit at the other end. Do not have one myself to test, just looking at numbers.

I am suppose to receive it today via UPS. I suppose the first comment is that their standard shipping is quite slow.

The device showed up. I will let it sit for a while as its quite cold. So it came double boxed which is always appreciated. Once it comes up in temperature a little bit I will charge it and then try and figure out a way to measure its capacity, etc.. without the tools that most YT channels have to do so.

Would depends on your specific need. 2 things here that I noticed right away:

- 500w less on the AC output could be a problem depending on what you are looking to power
- The price with tax for me is 300$ more vs the Renogy unit
- It does seem like a nice compact package. Most likely due to the NCM batteries in the unit versus the LIFEPO4 in the Renogy. Google is your friend here to see the pros vs cons of each.
