To the users who are in hunt of Back Up UPS, I recommend APC BR1100CI-IN. As my microtek 800 VA lasted for only few months, I had to upgrade my UPS and in a hunt, I was tossing between Numeric and APC, after a thorough study went and bought APC BR1100, and it was amazing UPS for Home and Small office users.Bought it for around 5300K

Battery Backup And Experience:

After getting the unit charged for almost 18 hours which is recommended during first use, I almost got a back up of 45 minutes with 90% of the load, which is way beyond the claimed back up time by APC, that was amazing. On another day, I was just using my LED monitor(28w) and a modem of (15W), I got a back up of around 2.6 hours, this moment i felt its true value for money. The typical recharge time of the battery is 10+ hours when in offline mode.

APC BR1100CI-IN has got a good low audible beep when on battery which does not irritate you like Microtek.Good looking design and color.So far so good.! Additionally, BR1100 comes with 2 years repair or replace standard warranty, no need to carry your UPS and run around the service center, just give a call, the engineer will be at your door step for service.

  1. I bought the same UPS yesterday,but it's failed to start for the first use itself...There is no response from the UPS when pressing the power button.!!

    Is it needed to charge the battery before the first use...

  2. Hi, For this model, you need to open the battery case at the bottom and plug the Batter cable when using first time, the unit will not start until the battery connections are give.

    Its just a precautionary measure to preserve the battery.
