My First Rig: (Questions) - Page 4

I think your SSd uses a Sata plug. If it's too short, you could buy a sata plug that's longer. I'm not an electrician so perhaps you could start a new thread on the UPC.

Does your house have a panel of fuses or circuit breakers? They'd be in the "utility room" or some closet or the garage... etc... usually. If you're house is newer than... 100 years it should be set.

You can't plug your UPS into a powerstrip is what I get from that, and I'm sure that's all they mean.

Don't wanna risk derailing it, right?

No. My dad is electrician (works in construction so he knows some electricity stuff) but he hasn't taught me his craft...so I need another guy for the electricity.

I've just received the CyberPower 1350AVR UPS. I have two questions about installation. I've read the manual which comes with it and it says to make sure the wall branch is protected by either a fuse or circuit breaker. I don't know what this means. I'm completely wiring/electric-illiterate. If the outlet I'm using the UPS for is within my bedroom, is it safe to say it is protected by either a fuse or circuit breaker?

I have another question in regards to my UPS. In my manual, it says "The warranty prohibits the use of extension cords, outlet strips, and surge strips". Does this mean that in order for me to use the UPS properly, it cannot be plugged into a 2 plug outlet which also has a surge protector connected to it or does this just mean that I cannot connect a surge protector to one of the outlets within the UPS itself? The reason I ask this is because in my room, I've been using a 2 plug outlet which has one surge protector connected to each (2 surge protectors). Will I need to disconnect both from the wall and ensure that only the UPS is connected to the wall for optimal use?

I understand on the PSU their are 4 plugs which are battery protected (which will be where I plug in my new PC and monitor) but also notice their are 4 other plugs which are called "Full-time surge protection outlets". It's my guess that if the power goes out, the full-time surge protected outlets would act as a standard surge protector and still lose their power while the batter protected outlets would last until the battery runs out of charge. Does this mean that I can use the four full-time surge protected outlets in the place of a surge protector? Would I be able to plug devices into them without cutting into the UPS's battery max wattage of 810?

Sorry for so many questions. I'm going to give CyberPower a call tomorrow and ask them these questions also just to be safe. I'm not going to use my UPS until I'm absolutely sure how to properly use it.
  1. Most (if not every) house these days have either circuit breakers or fuses. They prevent short circuits. I know it my 80+ year old house the wiring is ancient but we have circuit breakers. They'll be on a switchboard or something.
  2. That note in the warranty is just to protect the company from having to replace your product if it is the fault of an extension cord, surge protector etc. It should be find to plug it into that. On the other hand I suspect the UPS has surge protectors built into it, so I am unaware of why you would want to have two surge protectors in one circuit.
  3. One thing to note is not to plug too many things into one plug from the wall (power strip into another power strip type of thing). Having too much power coming out of the wall could trip your circuit breaker/fuses.

Sorry, I want to clarify that I didn't mean that I wanted to plug my UPS into an outlet strip. What I wanted to do was only continue using one of my outlet strips for my router, speakers, alarm clock, and tooth brush while I would plug the UPS into the other wall outlet's 2nd plug, using the battery protected outlets on the UPS to plug my PC and monitor into.
