can someone tell me the difference between "Full Load Run Time" and "Batter Run Time"?
for example: specs on this TrippleLite 1000VA
- Full Load Run Time: 4 minutes
- Half Load Run Time: 14.1 minutes
- Battery Run Time: 1-30 Min
The review of this Tripp Lite 1000VA is interesting (at bottom of page)
Works but case gets very hot. According to Tripp, unit uses about 1A of power in standby mode. Since the batteries are charged most of the time, the power is coverted to heat. The case gets very warm and in since I have mine in an entertainment cabinet, it just because a 120 watt heating element. I have several UPS units and this is the only one which gets hot. Its a poor design to waste 120 watts of power 24/7. It only takes a couple watts to trickle charge the batteries. Tripp offered to replace it but stated the new one would have the same issue. I would not have purchased this if I knew it put out 100 plus watts of heat 24/7.i don't want to buy a UPS that does this; how do you know if your UPS does this or not? is there a specific spec to look for?
can you recommend a unit? i need it for 455W but would like to get a high up-time (20 - 30 min minimum):
my comp: 305W
dual monitors 100W total
usb drives 50W total
