Some issues and questions about 1200 VA powerpac
Recently I purchased a 1200VA Powerpac UPS and after charging it I set it up with my cpu and monitor. About 10-12 hours afterwords the wall socket my ups was connected to inexplicably stopped working. Right now I'm charging my UPS in another room, and am using a regular multiplug thats connected to a 2 pin socket that's a bit far away to power my cpu. Now my questiions..
1. Did the UPS have anything to do with the wall power outlet thing failing or was it just a really bad coincidence?
2. Is there any problem if instead of connecting my UPS directly to a socket, I connect it to the multiplug I'm using right now? (*It's a 2 pin socket too so not really possible to connect the ups, besides its kind of a hard reach)
3, (Kinda unrelated but still would appreciate the help) In regular use do I turn off the UPS every time I'm not using my computer? Like keep it plugged in but turned off all the time (So the green light doest glow), or just keep it charging AND turned on 24/7?
Really would appreciate some help, kinda confused as to wtf is going on. Thanks
kinda In a hurry so will try to get keep it short.
1. yes/no/maybe. make sure that port has enough power to power that UPS and load.
2. No, there is no problem however make sure the connection is properly done, loose connection might result in continuous sparking and will lead to heat related damages. Another thing make sure the multi plug can handle the power.
3. if you don't use your computer its better to turn it off but i keep my pc and UPS too turned on for days or even weeks no problem what so ever, the thing about Lead acid battery is, don't let it fall below 15%, and charge it frequently, don't just leave a low charged battery for days, sulfonation will ¤¤¤¤ up the batteries.
And one last thing if your UPS just have finished a backup session, as soon as electricity comes back don't just turn it on instantly, let it charge a little bit first although if you are in a hurry then yeah you have to turn it on but dont push it to provide another backup session.

Also it's just a generic chineese multiplug, can those generally handle that output?
