    APC BGE50ML reviews

    Back-UPS Connect is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost amazing... Bought 2 of these as Deal of the Day. 1 dock at home, 1 dock at the shop and always keep one battery on the charger. So far that game plan is working great. I throw the dead one on the charger and grab a fresh one on the way out the door then stuff it in my laptop bag as an iPhone/iPad charger. Very convenient. As a UPS, it's not going to yield you much time and it's for very low draw items. I wish the battery was a little longer lasting. Using the 2.4 port, you can get about 1 full iPad charge out of it at most, and that's with a brand new unit. If I could get 2 full charges out of this, where I could have it in my laptop bag for a few days between charges I'd gush with a 5 star review. But essentially it's a single 1 time use then it's drained and in need of a re-charge. Having bought 2 of these at a steep discount is probably the only reason I like them and still use them at the moment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A practical UPS with a removable take along battery... Have not had to take the removable lithium battery out of the unit to use it as a take along charging device. �But that is a very handy concept to have the flexibility to use... Hopefully (like any other UPS device), it sits silently and ready to do its appointed task(s)...� But if it is like all my other APC brand products, it most certainly will (until its battery ages out)...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No outage fear any more Unpacking and hooking up my modem and router to the UPS was a cinch. It just took 2 hours to charge the device and now I'm not afraid of power outages any more. After setup and charging the battery I switched off the electricity to check whether modem + router would still work and low and behold, they did! Perfect product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buys this product again. This is a perfect sized UPS for my desk with my MacBook Pro Retina connected. I love the fact that I can remove the battery and take it with me as a backup for my Pixel 2 XL Smartphone. A great vaule for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent design, good value I have used many different APC products for years, and have had only 1 failure on an older product. I like the design of this unit, and the price was certainly worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought 2 of them for laptops and love them great design, compact unit, great idea to have usb plugs to charge, even better why not provide a c usb plug too for the newer devices.
