Plug into backup battery or surge..???

I have the APC backup battery. On the back, there are many outlets and options. There are backup and surge outlets. My question, what should I be plugging my L1s into??

I have the computer system as well..

Re: Plug into backup battery or surge..???

Hi Tim,

What are you trying to do? Protect the L1™ from power surges or run on batteries or both?



I cannot comment on the advisability of running the L1™ on an APC Backup Battery... , but I will try to help you understand what you are seeing on the back of your APC Battery Backup.

There have been several discussions about this, for example Fried Power Stands.

I don't think we have heard anything (edit) recommendations from anyone-at-Bose about this.




Here is a link to a page on the APC site where you can download manuals for APC Products.

http://www.apcc.com/prod_docs/results.cfm?DocType=User+...ry_Type=8&value=none

Maybe you can find something specific related to the APC unit you have.


Back to what your question and what you are seeing.



There is a clipping from one of their products at the end of this post.

Surge is ***Surge Only*** and on the APC gear that I use for computers, these sockets provide surge protection - but do not provide battery backup.

Only the sockets marked ** BATTERY BACKUP ** provide power if the power from the MAINS is interrupted.

I understand the the BATTERY BACKUP sockets provide SURGE PROTECTION too.
