UPS for Modem & Router

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well this past weekend I experience several power outages during some lightning storms and decided it's time to get some battery backup. The modem and router for my internet connection are in the master bedroom closet and will need their own UPS. I'm guessing that together the 2 units pull under 100W so I don't need anything crazy, but I would like to have an hour or so of time before they go kaput so I can continue using a laptop.

Any suggestions on this one? Most UPS items I see are rating for oh 8 minutes on half-load, but that doesn't help me determine how long the modem and router will last...

Here's the UPS I use. It has been working well for me for years. I got mine (2x) from Sams Club.

Here's a UPS selector tool that may or may not help you.

Im running my cable modem and D-Link DIR-655 off of a single 350w UPS. Keeps them up and running for many hours.

Update for everyone! I got the UPS (APC 350 200W), let it charge for 2 days, and killed the power to the UPS at the circuit breaker. My wife and I both surfed the web for 58 minutes on 2 computers and a smartphone. So, about 1 hour of backup time, which is more than I've ever seen the power go out at one time. I'd recommend it. smile.gif

Any UPS can do it just for the router and modem.
