If a APC SmartUPS XL (1kVA) is consumer grade, then it is expensive alright.
I have heard bad things about APC, but it probably applies only to their
el-cheapo product lines.
- they have lots of $$$ to do marketing/sales because
you have to buy new ones every 6mon-year or new batteries
Well, my SmartUPS XL is on production for more than one year so far. The
AVR works wonderfully (my main is a bit high, at ~125V so the AVR is
*always* on), too. It sustains the current load I placed on it for > 1h,
and plays by the book, shutting the load down cleanly and powering it up
Did you buy a replacement battery when you bought the unit?
