I have a NexxTech 1000VA UPS that power down after a few hours. The front panel indicates the unit can charge to full capacity. Would like to know the likely cause, and possible way to fix it. Thank you.
Note: it is possible the it is a rebrand CyberPower unit, as some of NexxTech UPS are made by CyberPower.

Back up devices on the computer creates copies of every new features that are performed. The backup devices default settings may allow to save data every often like 2-3 times in 24 hours. also, the backup devices save settings can be altered to suit user speciifcations. for example, important projects on important files may require to save every few seconds lest any malfuntion that occurs to the computer is misplaced. back devices are considered external structures and should be locate on the computer systems control panel area with a unique description. Clicking on the backup devices logos would allow to manipulate either create urgent backup or space the backup to make the computer faster where back becomes attainabel durign idle hours.( for example, set the computer backup to first tthing in the morning or last at close of computer usage.)
There could a couple of problems that would be the reason that the UPS is not able to power your equipment.
1. You have exceeded the output limits of the UPS. If the power demand from all the devices exceed the UPS' capacity. The model that you indicate should be able to power a total of 1000 watt load for about a few minutes. If should be able to power your computer, monitor, modems/routers easily, but if you have a laser printer attached, it will not be able to sustain the demands of the printer. Try removing any heavy loads like printers and see if this will work.
2. The battery in the UPS needs to be replaced. The battery in a UPS is only good for a few years. After a while it needs to be replaced because after a while it is not able to supply the needs of the UPS. If the battery is more than 2-3 years old it should be replaced.
Depending upon how old your UPS is, it may need new batteries. To get help, you will have to contact APS or if you have a local Batteries Etc or other battery retail store that can check the unit for you. Without checking the battery condition and running diagnostics, there is not a lot that can be done to give you a better solution.
Hope this helps.
Let me know what you find out. Thanks.
waheed70, NO!!!! NO!!! NO!!! DO NOT EVEN THINK OF DOING THAT!!! You may cause catastrophic failure to not one but both APC ups units and will void any warranty you might have!!! If you are in need of longer run time on battery back-up, then start looking into buying an "ONLINE" ups system somewhere in the 5 to 10 kva range. Check out "chloride" systems and "powervar" and "toshiba" and "ONEAC" for info about "true online" battery back-up systems. Bye for now. 12fixlouie
If battery charge indicator is flashing it should be UPS calibration issue, If all the LED indicator is light up in the front panel and UPS still can go online on battery mode you just need to replace the board on the front panel and the light will just back to normal state.
