450w battery back up

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Would it be ok to use this on my sig rig? Being that it's not a ups, then it should be ok to use, even with my 850w psu right? The only time I"d need battery is when the system is idle, pulling less that 200w?

well, if the battery is rated 450w per hour, then it might work
your pc should pull around 250w during idle
it all depends on the quality of the battery and its output ratings
can you check the amp per hour rating on the battery?

I think your idle power usage estimate is off by more than 100 watts. Here's some examples of idle and load power consumption.

Which looks about right when comparing to what my own UPS is reporting for my sig rig. OP you're fine using the UPS, you'll just have less time to run when using the battery.

What are watts per hour? Energy / time^2 ?

well we have kilowatt per hour, why can't we have watt per hour
basically, it is (amp per hour) x (volts)

How exactly will you be using this battery? How will you ensure this battery switches only when idle?

If it is not an UPS, what kind of output does it produce? Your PSU requires AC input.

Well, after a night of charging, come to find out it's dead anyway!! So it doesn't matter, I'm going to get a "smart" ups, somewhere around 600w when I get some tax money in a couple weeks.

No, we have kilowatts (kW) x hours (h) = kilowatt hours (kWh).

Wattage is a measure of power. Power is energy/time. Specifically, 1 Watt = 1 Joule / 1 second. That's why, on your power bill, you are charged for kilowatt-hours... that's the total energy they had to supply you with that month.

A good analogy is speed. Speed is distance per time. Saying Watts per second is like saying mph per hour (this has the dimension of acceleration, not speed or distance). If you want to find out how far you drove (analogous to energy consumed), you multiply your speed (miles/hour) by your time (hours) and you get distance (miles). If you divided, you would get miles/hour/hour and a completely incorrect value.
