Twain electrical power is 110volts at 50hertz.
Japan is 100volts and switches between 50hertz/60hertz.

Where is the majority of all electrical and electronic components made????????? CHINA, TWAIN, JAPAN. kungfu.gifjerry.gif

All sold APC units here in Australia are all made in India, go figure thinking.gif .

Who knew that voltages determine were it'll be made and imported from.

APC Smart-UPS 1000 VA. You may get older one and replace couple small capacitors, refurbished this way it will survive ages.

Price doesn't matter. But I certainly don't wanna spend more than I need and waste money either. My PSU is 650W so I guess that's the max load I'm looking at + monitor.

A ups that is 1000va will be fine, just go with a good company ect. A.P.C preferably, believe it or not Cyberpower is actually pretty darn good as well. Tripplite, ehh while they are popular, I don't like them. From experience I've noticed tripplites get much hotter APC or Cyberpower UPS that are in the same class.

Are they fairy easy to change the batteries for? I've never changed batteries myself ever so looking for something that will be easy to change battries for when needed.

The APC units I have had have easy enough to replace batteries. One had a door that slid down to remove it the other had a door that pulled off and a metal plate that you removed to slide the battery out. Both units have packs(2 batteries stuck together) with a plug on them so they just plug into the system with ease.

Some lower powered or cheaper units have a single battery(lower runtime or lower output). These may have 2 connectors(just follow red to red and black to black and it should be ok.)

Before buying a new unit, check out the company website.

Most of the time you can download the manual to get an idea of how hard or easy the battery changing is.

I have an old Noma branded ups(not a PC one, was using it for lights and a cordless phone. Now my NAS is on it for the time being) that has 2 batteries inside, but you have to open the unit to swap them(this may be more of an issue since you could have higher voltage to watch out for).

Remembered that ALL the older APC units had solid and reliable inbuilt Transformers that are needed when it comes to controlling electrical currents out of the wall.

MOST new models now no longer contain an inbuilt (tough. robust) transformer hence relying mostly on inbuilt caps to pop when electrical currents change during operation. That is why the newer models fail easily when used over time.

Will always buy older model APC units and replace the used batts for many years of decent service. Refuse to spend money buying any new UPS's when the standards now for reliability are so low.

File a complaint with the Consumer Products Safety Commission, either at http://www.cpsc.gov/ or 1-800-638-2772, and tell them you want your information forwarded to the manufacturer.

Older backup supplies all had big power supplies that worked at 60 Hz, but some newer ones are like computer power supplies and drive a far smaller transformer at much high frequency and then probably convert the output to 60 Hz again. There's no such thing as a backup supply or UPS that doesn't include transformer isolation for safety.
