OPTI-UPS Enhanced Series ES1500C Review
What is a UPS?
A UPS is an uninterruptible power supply. It
is also know as an uninterruptible power
source or battery backup system. It is an electronic unit that
connects between the powder receptacle and the appliance and provides
protected emergency power to the appliance when the main power
fails or surges.
I've had my OPTI-UPS ES1500C Enhanced Uninterruptible Power Supply for
five years. It has performed flawlessly with no problems
whatsoever. I found that the UPS battery lasts about two years
with continual use before requiring replacement. I purchased the
UPS to protect my electrical equipment from power outages and
power fluctuations. I can find nothing bad to say about these
units. See all
