However if basing the runtime on half and full load of the Smart1500XLTAA (490 watts and 980 watts) adding the BP36V42-3U to the UPS system will bring the runtimes to 3 hrs 5 minutes and 1 hr 17 minutes.
The battery is 36 volts and 42 amp hours, however there always a direct correlation between wattage and runtime; in order to make sure the battery is providing the right runtime please reach out to our main product support team at 773-869-1233 option 3 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
