Thread: Problem with UPS

  1. #1

    Default Problem with UPS

    I bought a ups (Digital X 1200 VA) from ryans almost a year ago, which now has approx. 13 days of warranty still remaining. At first, I used to get reasonable backup time from it (approx 20-30 mins), but then it slowly started to go down to only 10 mins. And now I don't even get 10 seconds of backup from it. Also to note- a faint buzzing noise comes from it when it's on battery. I'm thinking the battery is just dying, but never expected it to die out within just a year. I'll be taking it to ryans tomorrow. Any idea what I can expect from them? Can they replace it, or I have to buy a new one?

    A simple suggestion, do an investment. Spend 25k on a Micro Long backup ups which uses 100Ah car battery, you will get 3 hours of backup. Im saying again, it is an investment which will serve you like 5-10 years.

    So, in other words, whichever standard ups I buy, it's only gonna last me at most a year?? That's ridiculously sad. And the even sadder part is, I don't get loadshedding that often in my area, at most 3 or 4 times in an entire month. Which meant the ups battery wasn't even used that much -_-

    you really don't need to buy ups every time just refile the battery or just replace the battery or take it to ryans if you still have warranty

    Car Battry and battery used for IPS is not the same.

    Car batteries have higher cranking amp and the plates are thinner. which is why you need battery specifically made for IPS.

    And yes investing in higher capacity UPS/IPS combo is obviously cost effective and better than dinky small UPS which starts to underperform quite rapidly specially with high end pcs or load.

    In general, any solution with flooded battery will give you the best value for the money.

    replacing batt in cheap UPS is always a risky bet. If the inverter is already worn out ur new replacement batteries won't perform up to the mark. So unless u have a decent unit I would not recommend replacing the batteries
