Question about APC Back-UPS RS Battery Backup (apw br1500) UPS System
I recently purchased a laptop to replace my destop and have a question about a power strip. I was wondering if I could plug a plain power strip (no surge protection) into the battery backup just to have an outlet closer to the laptop to be able to plug in more conveniently. I wouldn't be plugging anything else into it but just using it as an outlet closer to the laptop. I know you arent supposed to do this in some cases. What do you think?
Considering the low draw of power you intend for the UPS it will work well. I have two monitors on a strip plugged into UPS along with desktop, routers and modems, UPS handles all well, it's just shortens battery backup times. Have had to power down from outages several times without any probs.
