    Hi All,

    I would like to know which UPS can run a printer (50 W) for 8 hrs without charging. I have been trying many different models and i am not sure if I am doing the right way. 1000 VA Smart UPS gives me around 4 hrs. So is 2000 VA the best choice I have to double the backup time? 

    Or is there another series of UPS intended for long hours of back up run time for mobile solutions ?

    Hi Jitu,


    If you navigate to apc.com and select your Country

    Then navigate to:

    Support > Resources & tools > Tools & selectors

    Then select “UPS Selector”


    If you enter the expected load the tool will recommend a solution.

    What you probably want is a Smart-UPS with the extended runtime (XL) option and a few battery boxes.

    If this is a laser printer, it's worth considering that the inrush current may exceed the inverter's capabilities in even a fairly large UPS.

    There are some Back-UPS products with limited extended runtime capability. You would have to be sure that your printer is OK with modified sine wave power if you chose a Back-UPS model.
