great price but pay attention to its intended use
outlets are two prong (no ground) so typically low draw devices only

Thanks. Ordered one for the modem and router since building management performs power tests every now and then. Added a Honeywell fan for free shipping.

I had an older APC UPS connected to my router and modem but that seems to interfere with my DSL line and wifi so I ended up using it for something else. Anyone else have this problem?

If that's happening it's defective. I had to fight APC with a smartUPS once uphill battle but it paid off

Been using an old APC Back-ups with my router and modem for years without issues.

Are you filtering the RJ11 ports via the UPS? I found that filtering RJ11 or Coax causes problems. If you just treat it as a power bar, it works just fine.

You didn't look at it before you ordered? Or read the comment? RFD effect big time! :)

To be fair, this is not something people think of checking for a UPS. That's like having to check if a car comes with a radio, people don't think of checking that because it feels like it is a standard.

Man.. Assuming there's a 12V 7.2Ah in there, i pay more than $30 for batteries...
Then again I'm snooty and basically only use Panasonics which are like $50ea.

So this would be sufficient for modem and router I presume based on some of the comments in here?

That's the mistake I would have made if it wasn't pointed out to me. I used to have a full sized APC UPS until it broke (started beeping) and didn't like the "car battery" nature of it when I only used it to plug in one or two things.

I'd go for a smaller single plug unit...if it had a three prong plug.

And thanks clicked for pointing out it's only two pronged.

thanks
My modem+router is burning ~15watt and this can give me ~3hours of runtime (could be more, but more than enough for my test and I don't want to fully drain my battery).
I have then plugged in a 7W LED bulb after a full charge, gave me ~6hours of runtime (could be more, similar idea as above).
