Answer: 
There's always going to be a direct correlation between wattage and runtime, so knowing the connected equipment would be idea in determining desired runtime.

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.

Answer: 
The main 1500 va UPS system the BP36V42-3U will work with is SMART1500RMXL2Ua.

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 techsupport@tripplite.com.
