    I used to have the older version of the 850VA. It was a great buy back then. This one is just as high quality. I bought two – one for my entertainment equipment (modem, router, PS4, Roku, AppleTV, sound system) and another for my desktop PC (desktop, monitor, speakers).I downloaded and installed the PowerChute desktop software that connects to the backup battery to monitor its status. It works very well. After a full charge, it says the battery runtime would be anywhere from 23 minutes to 32 minutes. It all depends on how much stuff you have plugged in. It also gives you a little feature to calculate how much energy is being used by the battery supply.I tested both units by plugging in my devices, plugging in the unit to the outlet, powering on, and then removing the plug from the outlet. Not a blip with any of my devices. You can hear a small sound from the battery when it switches from AC to battery and back, that’s normal. I live in Texas and the weather last week made me realize how unprepared I am for disasters. When power goes out, that doesn’t mean the cable internet connection is also gone. I felt so vulnerable without a connection to the internet because the nearest cell tower also lost power. With my modem and router still on, my internet connection would remain on, giving me a chance to see what’s going on online and then figure out a plan. Knowing that I have 30 minutes of backup power to get myself sorted makes me feel much more prepared. I will always use APC for this stuff. 100% reliable.

    Internet is king, and most of us would have serious withdrawals should the internet go down for any extended time. So when I read the news that my town would be in the path of Hurricane Florence, I decided to buckle down and get something that could support our modem and router for an extended power outage. Prime shipping had this APC UPS battery backup delivered the next day and the system was very easy to assemble out of the box.Upon unpacking, you have to plug in the internal battery (disconnected to stay safe during shipping) which does briefly cause minor, but expected, sparking. The battery slides into place easily and the cover re-attaches with moderate effort. The battery is shipped mostly depleted, so do not expect this to power your devices for hours right out of the box. After about 24 hours of being plugged in, you should be good to go. We have a Google mesh Wi-Fi system, and this battery supports one of the wi-fi routers plus our Netgear CM700 modem.After owning this device for about 30 hours, we experienced our first power outage. The outage lasted for 3.5 hours and the UPS performed spectacularly. It immediately kicked in when the power went out and supported both the router and modem continuously during the outage. While this UPS comes with the ability to be monitored via a USB connection, I do not have that set up at this time so I don’t know how much juice was left in the UPS after the 3.5 hours. This is one of the small drawbacks for this UPS, as it doesn’t come with a built-in display to check load or battery levels. Once the power came back on, it switched back to the grid seamlessly. We had 4 more outages (lasting between 1 and 3 hours) over the next five days and the UPS had no problem powering our internet during that time.The device is heavy and certainly not designed to be proudly displayed on your mantle. The device prioritizes function over form, but I figure most users will be happy with this trade-off. It does not come with any advanced features, but provides great function at a lower price point ($57.15 at the time of this review, 9/18/2018).I will update this review if any problems arise with future use.

    I WILL NEVER NOT HAVE ONE OF THESE. I cannot tell you how much money I have saved on replacement batteries, fried electronics, poorer battery life as a subsequent effect of fluctuating power, and blown fuses. I have bought FOUR of these. Yes, four. One for just the router; one for my TV with PS4 and any other attachments; one for my husband’s laptop, monitor, Switch, and chargers; and one replacement because Georgia’s power grid is sketch and blew one of my UPS. IT COULD’VE BEEN MY WHOLE SETUP INSTEAD and I’m SO glad I had this UPS. I paid a lot of money for my devices of entertainment and I will not lose my fun investment to ratchet electricity. (Ignore the rats nest of cables — he doesn’t subscribe to twist ties.)

    Bought this because my Tripp-Lite finally gave out after 4 years. Hook everything up and there is a “building wiring fault” burning on the back of unit. I have never had an issue with any other UPS’s in this plug. Contact support….they want me to get an electrician to check out my wiring…WHAT? Yeah right, I’m gonna hire an electrician to come over and check my wiring because their $58 piece of electronics says there’s a problem with the wiring…nope….not gonna happen. It’s going back and I’m getting another Tripp-Lite. This is a bunch of crap. Oh, and their tech people have to keep asking other people when you ask them a question…..Update: The seller reached out to me and replaced my unit with a step up. Sent me an rma for free shipment back to them. They bent over backwards to make me happy so changing my stars to 4. I would give it a 5 but the unit needs a readout on the front showing the status and battery strength like the Tripp-Lites have. Otherwise the unit is working great. Thanks for the great customer service!Update 7/10/17. This seller went over and beyond to make me happy. Sent a new upgraded unit which is working flawlessly. Thank you very much!

    I have just started using my UPS and have only barely tested the functions but I have high hopes. I decided to buy a UPS during a storm. For a while, my power was going out for short bursts and eventually the power went out completely. The original power losses where short enough that had I not working on my Macintosh computer at the time, I would not have noticed. With each loss, my computer would shut down and, being me, I would start it back up and continue working. (Kudos to OS X for not loosing my place.) After a while the power went out all together.I decided that though the Mac was making it through the power cycles that I really shouldn’t have done tried. So I found this battery with the hopes that it would take me through small outages and then, if I was using it, it would give me enough time to shut down and let it be. Additionally, I thought I might be able to use the remaining charge to charge my phone during longer power outages.After hooking up the UPS and getting the battery charged, I noticed that there was a USB cable in the box. What’s this? Doing a little research, I learned that the cable connects my USB to my computer. Better, Mac OS X is already setup to let me configure it to shut down the right way when the power goes out. I hooked it up and configured it. Now, when I pull the plug on the UPS, a warning message pops up on my Mac warning me about the problem and saying that it’ll shut down soon. It’s that easy.The manual described additional software that Windows users may need to download. I have not looked into that.As a side note, the unit did put out some electrical odors when I unplugged it. Hoping that’s just a “new device smell.” Also, the unit came with instructions to hook up the battery before using it. They apparently ship it with the battery unplugged for safety reasons. I’m guessing that some of the negative reviews came from people who didn’t read that note.

    Update 11/21/21After 4 years installed as ups for my modem router and wireless cable point, no problems and the battery still works for 30 minutes. Very impressedUpdate 4/19/18Stress Test with a modem/ wireless router (Nameplate rating is 3.5A@12v+10% transformer loss) and two LED table lamps (11Wx2).. Ran 55 minutes before the UPS shut down.Power draw was 46W+ 22W = 68W for 55 minutes.The Amazon ad states this 600 VA UPS run time with a 100W load is 23 minutes.(68×55)/(100×23) = 3740/2300 = 1.6x more energy than advertised.. Please be aware that lower power draws can extract more energy before the battery dips below the low voltage shutoff.I’m guessing the wireless router power draw is less than nameplate, however, this UPS seems to be performing as advertised.===============================================================================Seems well assembled.. Didn’t like that the lead acid battery was over 7 months old when I received it, since lead acid batteries have a limited shelf life.The Powerchute software is a nice option on such an inexpensive UPS.Reason for this review: Anyone else notice a decrease in your Router’s WiFi signal strength if placed close to this UPS? Router range and speed took a severe hit after I hooked it up right above the UPS. After a few days finally identified this UPS as the culprit.Moved my NetGear AC1900 from directly above the UPS to a foot away.. problem solved.. Weird

    I purchased this 600VA, APC Back-UPS (BE600M1) to replace our aging APC 650ES model. It was having problems with the on/off button, so I decided to just replace it. This unit is only used for my wi-fi router and cable modem. They are the only things plugged into the battery backup ports to maintain internet when the power goes out in our house. This unit gives me over 2 hours of internet backup for my modem and wi-fi router. I have another APC battery backup for my desktop. I always use APC UPS and will continue to use them. They can be used in stand alone mode or you can download “Power Chute” software to change even more options. The one that runs my desktop is for my iMac. It is compatible with the “Energy Saver” software already on the Mac, so there is no need to download the Powerchute software. I have it set to soft shutdown my iMac when the battery power is less than 15% charge left. I would recommend this unit to anyone with a smaller computer, or to be used with modem/router for backup power.

    Have been buying APC uninterruptible power supply’s for many years 15 plus.Was worried about some of the reviews I have seen on Amazon about failed units and other such complaints.The unit I received works flawless just like all the other APC units I have owned.I haven’t needed any tech support on this latest unit ( as of yet ) but in the past when I have contacted APC by phone they have been more than willing to replace a unit that was under warranty. Plus shipped it to me for free and paid the shipping to return the one and only unit that has failed on me.Update 03/16/2020 started playing games and started hearing beeping sound first thought is was my PC system speaker turns out it the USP. If your system load is more than 330 watts it beeps at you even thought your not on battery and using wall power. Never had this problem out of my old same rated APC uninterruptible power supply.

    I have several of these in my home. Some larger, none smaller. I use the larger ones for my computer but these I use hooked up to my TVs, cable box, lift chair, adjustable bed and my electric fireplace. Why, you ask?!? Because I’m disabled and these UPSs protect from surges AND they allow me to lower my bed or chair if the power goes out. I’m not stuck in a position because of dead batteries. Try one with your TV and cable box and you won’t be made next time your power does a surge and your cable box taxes 5 minutes to reset and you were watching a good show and missed the best part. I convinced family members to try it and they are ecstatic. These are the perfect size to fit behind furniture, they can protect from surge and/or have the battery backup. The customer service with APC is awesome and their warranties are unbeatable. Any problem with the battery they replace it no questions asked. I live in central Florida so this product is put to use repeatedly during the summer. I highly recommend APC-UPSs and strongly suggest if you are hesitant to give them a try, you will NOT be sorry.

    Product being reviewed: “APC Back-UPS ES850G2″Product is compatible with Synology’s recent 920+ (and most likely the rest of them). The NAS safety shut down after unplugging the UPS. After re-plugging UPS, the NAS booted up automatically and displayed no errors. UPS was stated to be reconnected and no issues were displayed. For new users like me, note I used the “Powerchute” USB Data Port (located behind the unit that looks oddly shaped) and the NAS recognized it immediately. I have not attempted to connect the NAS to the front 2 USB ports. I assume it to most likely not work anyway.In addition, I noticed the Building Wire Fault (BWF) function worked successfully. I tested numerous outlets within the house and found only 2 outlets to contain the red light BWF notification. I am amazed I never found this issue with other surge protectors connected to these outlets. I cannot attest to the legitimacy of the BWF notification as I have not repaired the wiring yet, however there are numerous reviews online that state that the APC UPS line up is more than accurate compared to other test methods.Included with Product:- UPS unit- USB to USB Data Port (Powerchute) Cable- Quality Assurance Test Receipt (Never knew this was a thing!) – No, this does not mean it’s a used product.- DocumentationProduct works as stated.
