Question about PK Nextgrid BlackoutBuster B6U2 UPS System
I did a windows reinstall, and whatever advanced power options UPS settings for my ancient PK Electronics blackout buster B6u were wiped out. A) the manual and software can't be found on the web since the company has changed hands, and I'm not sure of current, accurate URL... and b) I don't know how to set the advanced settings that are now set as ''none'' for manufactuter and it says the ''UPS service is none''
The click down menu for manufactuer is none, American Power Conversion or generic, but when the setting are changed, I don't know what will happen....INfo on product:
Blackout Buster B6U ''Good Things Come In Small Packages'' Click on a thumbnail to enlarge it. Use your browser's ''BACK'' button to return to this review when done. Type of Product The Blackout Buster from PK Electronics is an (UPS) uninterruptible power supply and a surge protector. Features
I have to answer this question with just plain old common sense. Get a new one! This is crazy. If you get a new one, you will have a better, more upto date and something you can handle with todays OS and obviously new batteries. That is too old to mess with. I fixed a powerware once and the plastic was falling apart and the PC board was held together with a rubber band. Not worth it.

This is for the Blackout Buster by PK or PowerKinetics B6U model (as shown on the bottom of the unit). I have no manual, but I have always gotten the correct battery from:
You might want to visually look at your battery terminals to be sure and select the correct terminal config. Or, at least give them the s/n and model number on the bottom. IME, this is the BEST UPS I have ever had. My Father and I have each had one for almost 10 years. Now, if someone could point me to a place that sells the communication cable for it, I'd appreciate it.
