Great product!

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO Series 120V 550VA 300W Energy-Saving Standby UPS with USB and 8 Outlets:

I bought this to protect an expensive computer. It came with simple set up instructions, and registering the warranty was also very easy to do. I absolutely love the fact that I now have 8 outlets available to me at my desk instead of the two outlets I was dealing with before. I have easy access to my computer, desk lamp and several phone/ipod chargers without having to crawl around on the floor to find the wall outlet.

I bought this towards the end of June and it has already proven itself when it comes to protecting my computer. My house has poor electrical wiring so sometimes someone using the vacuum in the hallway will create a surge. The power surged and everything at my desk remained perfectly intact and continued running. I am very happy with this product!

120 volt 550VA UPS.

By Denny

from Oregon Coast

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO Series 120V 550VA 300W Energy-Saving Standby UPS with USB and 8 Outlets:

We have a lot of power blinks 1-2 second duration. Ive built and sold PC;s for over 20 years so I can't stress how damaging these short power blinks can be to a Computer. So far my Tripp lite UPS has proved to be a PC saver! The second one I bought for my nephew who lives in the same area here has stopped the problem of me resetting up his blue screen crashed Computer. I have tried different brands and I believe Tripp Lite to be more dependable.

Abundance of outlets

By Campusbob

from Patterson NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO Series 120V 550VA 300W Energy-Saving Standby UPS with USB and 8 Outlets:

Helped to fit a lot of small, low usage devices on a single outlet. With plenty of backup time to last for a short power outage. If your using it on devices not using a computer you may have to check if it's compatible from the start.
One odd thing... How to shut it off independent of it doing it on it own!

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO Series 120V 550VA 300W Energy-Saving Standby UPS with USB and 8 Outlets:

I've been extremely happy with my ECO550 UPS. It hs never failed me during any of the relatively rare and relatively brief (usually under ten minutes) power outages where I live. I would be pleased to recommend it to my friends who need a good, dependable UPS for their computer and peripherals.

Does what is says it will

By Anonymous

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO Series 120V 550VA 300W Energy-Saving Standby UPS with USB and 8 Outlets:

I bought this UPS for my computer to protect it from power outages, to provide protection so that I could power the computer down when we lose power.

This product has 4 outlets that are backed up with the battery and 4 that are surge-protected only (8 outlets total). I plug my computer/phone/modem/router into the backed up outlets. The 4 outlets are a bit too close together, though two of the 4 are spaced farther apart than the other two (but still not quite far enough). As a result, I had to be a little creative as to how to fit each plug in, as some plugs are bulkier than others.

The 4 surged-protected plugs are also energy saving and will power down when the computer is not in use. This feature works on my UPS, but I don't know that I really care that much about it and doubt it saves that much energy.

When the power goes out, the UPS beeps a loud, annoying beep that can not be shut off unless you power off the whole unit (which I do after I shut down the computer). There is a power button on the unit to shut down the UPS when there is a power outage. I suppose the beep is there to alert users of a power outage so they can go shut down the computer, but I don't need an alert and really wouldn't like one in the middle of the night. I wish there were a way to shut this feature off.

Overall, this is a good product and does what I wanted it to. I've had it for over three years, working just as it did the first day. I only wish that the outlets would be spaced father apart and that I could have more control over the beeping when there is a power outage.

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO Series 120V 550VA 300W Energy-Saving Standby UPS with USB and 8 Outlets:

I love my Tripp lite. It has saved me lots of money. Where I live we seem to have a lot of blackouts, brownouts, and surges. I have had to replace several computers because of this. Since I got the Tripp Lite My computer shuts down proper and I have had no problems. I would highly recommend this product to any one.

Great Product for Short Outages

By JBush

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO Series 120V 550VA 300W Energy-Saving Standby UPS with USB and 8 Outlets:

I purchased this product as I have short duration outages (2-5 minutes) all the time at my home. There is rarely a day that I com home and do not see the oven clock flashing due to an outage. The TrippLite ECO UPS is the perfect product to keep my desktop and back-up drive running through these outages. I did not need a large UPS with hours of backup time, just something to make sure that things did not get lost when the power flickered. Thanks TrippLite for making an affodable product for the everyday user!

I have been using my EC0550UPS for about 15 months and really appreciate it's dependability. It gives me plenty of time to allow a smooth shutdown after a power outage. I would reccomend this unit as a very good investment in backup power systems.

Not happy with this product

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO Series 120V 550VA 300W Energy-Saving Standby UPS with USB and 8 Outlets:

First I want to say I LOVE TRIPPLITE products, always have however after purchasing quite a few of these little guys at one time and installing them at our users desks I have to say I am not happy. More than 20% of them seemed to fail at the job they are supposed to do. With just a basic computer and a monitor plugged into the Battery Backup outlets some of the units would start to beep only after a day or two of being installed. I made sure the units were installed according to the instructions and still had this happen. For some which seemed to be working properly, during a power outage the users machines immediately turned off. I had our maintenance guy check the outlets and they checked out fine. I installed a different model and sometimes brand for those same users and not issues. Unfortunately, where our office is located, we have power outages quite often. With that said, it has not negatively impacted my love of Tripplite, just this product.

Frequently Asked Questions

When the red Overload/Check Battery LED is flashing, the internal battery of the UPS system requires a recharge or replacement due to age.

Follow the instructions below in an attempt to restore normal operation:
1. Power off and remove any equipment connected to the UPS.
2. Power off the UPS by pressing the On/Off button and holding it until the UPS beeps. Release the On/Off button and disconnect the UPS from the AC outlet.
3. Determine if the UPS has a removable battery door by examining the bottom of the UPS.

    -If there is no battery door, continue to step 6.
    -If there is a battery door, continue to step 4.

4. Remove the battery door and carefully remove the battery for inspection.

    -If the battery is bloated or damaged, purchase and install an appropriate replacement battery. When the UPS is returned to service, be sure it is adequately ventilated.
    -If a voltmeter is available, check the battery’s voltage. If the battery’s voltage is less than 10V DC, purchase and install an appropriate replacement battery. The UPS system's charger cannot recharge a battery with voltage lower than 10V DC.
     -If the UPS and battery are more than two years old, purchase and install an appropriate replacement battery. Battery performance and capacity deteriorate over time, and a replacement is needed periodically.
      -If none of the above applies, inspect the battery cables attached to the battery. Remove any build-up of corrosion found on the battery terminals or connectors.

5. Ensure that both the positive and negative connectors are firmly attached to the correct battery leads: the red lead to the red terminal, the black lead to the black terminal. Reinstall the battery and battery door.
6. Determine if the UPS has a circuit breaker (button- or plunger-style) by examining the perimeter of the UPS.

    -If there is no circuit breaker, continue to the next step.
    -If there is a circuit breaker, press the button inward. If there is no resistance and the button stays recessed, then the circuit breaker is already reset.

7. Confirm that the AC outlet is passing power by connecting another device, such as a radio or lamp, to the outlet.
8. Connect the UPS to the working AC outlet.
9. Power on the UPS by pressing the power button and holding it until you hear a beep. The green On/Off LED should now be lit.
10. Verify that the power rating of the equipment to be plugged into the battery-backup/surge-protected outlets does not exceed the UPS output capacity. To do this, add together the power ratings for each piece of equipment and compare the total requirements to the capacity of your unit, which is listed a) on the bottom of the UPS, or b) on the Product Specification tab on the Tripp Lite website's product page. If the total power draw of the connected equipment exceeds the capacity of the UPS, the load MUST be reduced to conform to the output specifications of the unit. Note: This UPS has two types of outlets: battery-backup/surge-protected outlets that DO provide battery-backup power, and surge-protected-only outlets that DO NOT provide battery-backup power.
11. Reconnect the equipment that requires battery-backup power and is within the output capacity of the UPS directly into the battery-backup/surge-protected outlets. Power on the equipment. Equipment that does not require battery-backup protection or that exceeds the capacity of the UPS can be plugged into the surge-protected-only outlets.
12. Perform a self-test by holding the On/Off button for 3 seconds and releasing it after the second beep. The unit will register an alarm while it checks internal components and will briefly operate in battery mode to ensure that it is able to power the attached equipment. If the connected devices remain operational throughout the test, then the UPS is operating properly. Another series of beeps will indicate that the test is complete.
Follow the steps below to perform a discharge reset of an AVR, ECO, Internet, or BC model Tripp Lite UPS system:
1. Power off any equipment connected to the UPS system.
2. Disconnect any devices plugged into the outlets of the UPS system.
3. Press and hold the On/Off/Test button and release the button after the UPS emits a single beep. The UPS will be powered off with no LEDs lit and no AC output from the Battery Backup Protected/Surge Protected outlets.
4. Disconnect the UPS from its AC input source. Verify the UPS is powered off by making sure that no LEDs are lit and that the UPS is no longer passing power from the Battery Backup Protected/Surge Protected outlets and the Surge-Only Protected outlets.
5. Remove the screw(s) that secure the battery door of the UPS and remove the battery door.
6. Tilt the UPS to allow the battery to partially slide away from the UPS, exposing the battery terminals. Locate the red and black battery cables connected to the battery. Using pliers, disconnect one of the UPS DC input cables, either the red or black cable, from the battery. Be sure that the cable does not come in contact with the opposite battery terminal.
7. Locate the On/Off/Test button. Press and hold the On/Off/Test button for ten seconds and then release it.
8. Reconnect the red or black UPS DC input cable to the terminal from which it was disconnected.
9. Reinstall the battery door.
10. Connect the UPS to a known working AC source. The Surge-Only Protected outlets will now begin to pass power.
11. To power on the unit, press and hold the On/Off/Test button and release it after the UPS emits a single beep. The On/Off LED will illuminate and the UPS will begin passing power from its Battery Backup Protected/Surge Protected outlets.
