I need for Cpu and Monitor only minimum 15 minutes back up only.
Any personal experience?

Using iball nirantar since 2012… bought from Shopclues… sad … it runs 1 router, 2 laptops, 1 tv, 1 Android box simultaneously without any issues… battery lasts 2-3years… changed it thrice so far for 700-800 from local market… I am quite happy with it… smile

Got Artis 600VA UPS from Amazon last week. Tested it with my Fibre Modem, lasted 6 hours and 15 minutes (Router Adapter is rated at 0.4 Amp (max)). Makes a beep sound every 10 seconds when its on battery backup (not very loud though), will open it up and remove the speaker today as my parents dont like it.

https://www.amazon.in/Artis-PS-600VA-600VA-Line... . Here’s the link, not very hi-tech model but serves the purpose. Has a single LED, Stable LED means its on AC power, LED blinking and a beep every 10 second means its on battery backup and LED blinking and a beep every second indicates low battery.

I found cheapest new Artis/ Zebronics @1999 minus any promotion.

Which brand shall I choose?

If you’re not constrained for budget go for APC. Very reliable and reputed brand with excellent service. 600VA will do for a regular PC.

APC is the best ups but also the costliest. UPS power rating is 60% of its VA rating so 600VA ups can deliver up to 600*0.6=360W. Backup time depends on installed ups battery & the power consumption.

https://www.apc.com/products/runtime_for_extend...

600VA APC ups gives 2.8 min of backup for full 360W load & 12.7 min of backup for 180W load.

You may go with Artis. Shared my review, wanted to open it up and remove the speaker buy my screwdriver is too small to reach the screws which are placed deep inside the holes laughing . Will get a new one tomorrow.

Just for my curiosity, has anyone tried replacing the battery on a 600VA UPS with a higher capacity, would it actually work? In principal, I think any capacity 12V battery should essentially work but not very sure if the UPS electronic circuitry has any difference based on the capacity (maybe to dissipate the extra heat or something). #CivilEngineer smile . I know it might not fit the UPS body, but I’m open to some DIY and keep the battery separate than the UPS body (drilling holes into the UPS body to run the wires) toungueout

@mrKool_JJ @lanny25

You can do that, but here’s what will happen. The charging circuitry inside the UPS is limited to charge a 7Ah battery. If you increase the rating, the charging time increases and as a result heat produced also increases. So the charging circuit does more job for extended times and it may go kaput.

Let’s say the charging is taken care, now comes the discharging. The discharging also takes decent amount of time, and this is where it produces more heat, and it definitely needs a bigger heat sink inside and better heat dissipation.

The battery can be wired externally, but tweaking the charging/discharging part is a big bummer.
