UPS - output load

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi! I have a noobish question: why does output load on my UPS increase 3 times when I'm running from a battery? My output load is 56W when the UPS is charging and when I switch to battery mode, my output load jumps to 170W. I can barely get 30 minutes of battery runtime, which is not enough.. Anyone knows why is it happening? Thanks

Maybe some of the points are able to bypass the battery and just have surge protection until the power is out, and then they get supplied by the battery.
30 minutes is plenty for a UPS, the idea is you connect the UPS to your computer via usb, and the UPS gracefully shuts down your computer when the power goes out or becomes inconsistent. This way you avoid a hard shutdown because the power cut out. They aren't really designed to run the computer for hours after the power has gone out, and if you are after this functionality, you are probably looking at a unit worth a few thousand dollars, something more for an enterprise level setup.
