About the American Power Conversion (APC) APC Smart-UPS C 1500VA

The APC Smart-UPS C 1500 VA with LCD is a 900 W out, 120 V in UPS (uninterruptible power supply) with an USB interface port, multifunction LCD status and control console and 8x battery-powered outlets. It uses NEMA 5-15R connections for output and a NEMA 5-15P input connection. Its maintenance-free sealed lead-acid battery has a typical recharge time of 3 hours and you can purchase backup batteries for the unit separately.

At a full load of 900 W, the backup time is 5 minutes. At half load of 450 W, the backup time is 14 minutes. It has a surge energy rating of 455 joules, so it is well protected against brown outs, shutdowns and surges. It also provides battery-powered AC from its outlets. The Smart-UPS C 1500 VA with LCD (120 V) also bypasses unused electrical components in good power condition in certain power modes to help stay green by using less power without sacrificing protection.

It also uses pure sine wave output to simulate utility power as close to the original as possible to protect servers and sensitive electronics. The Smart-UPS C 1500 VA with LCD (120 V) is a smart investment for end users looking to protect their equipment from sudden power loss.
