Built-in single-line RJ-45 jacks offer protection for equipment with single-line tel/DSL or network Ethernet connection. Built-in audible alarm and large LCD front panel voltage display indicates line power status, battery power status, battery low/replace status and voltage boost operation.

The LCD display includes a dimmer switch and can be rotated for easy viewing in any application. 1500VA/900W power-handling capacity supports entry-level PCs, home entertainment systems, network workstations and audio/video components.

An "uninterruptible" power supply should never drop power unless line power is unavailable AND the batteries are dead. But this unit drops power if the batteries are low, even if line power is available! This is neither standard nor acceptable UPS behavior.
