(Odd Question) 5.25" UPS?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone know where to get one of these? Preferably new. I've seen a few that came out in like 2000 so I know it exists.

For power requirements probably less than 400. For more detail yes I use a 500 watt PSU on my mini rig (MICHELLE in sig/sig rig) but never fully use that 500 as far as I know.

If this fails my next guess would be side panel modding the case to accommodate a ups/powerbrick combo?

Any and all suggestions welcome.

From what I found, the 5.25 bay was just for the battery pack. The one I saw clearly was using the battery pack in conjunction with a proprietary PSU. So you had to use them together. So you can't have your own PSU working with the 5.25 battery pack.

Yeah I saw one of those too, I was tempted but the psu wasn't strong enough for what I needed.

It does exist though! See: http://www.geek.com/hwswrev/hardware/ups/btups/index.htm this is what I'm talkin bout.

hmm, maybe when your computer was pulling only 150 watts(at most) it might have lasted a minute. Probably wouldn't have much time with a modern computer.
