I currently have a 5 year old Ultra 1025VA
(similar but not exact model) running a modem/router/LCD and a quad with 2 9800GTs. The battery looks good, I check every 6 months, and only have maybe 8 min. before the thing gets to below the preset charge % and really starts screaming that it's power is nearly gone.
I was thinking of just getting a new battery but looking at the age of the UPS I was thinking of getting a completely new box. This has been my one and only UPS experience and the Ultra has been excellent for the price/performance but is getting old! Their blurb
states 50 minutes up time but I guess they're talking about regular folks.
Does anyone have any other preferences as to brand? I'm thinking of getting a 2000VA UPS so's I can surf with my lappy for a few hours. It's very rare that power goes out longer than that.
