Designed for computers, wireless networking devices, gaming consoles, security systems, and other electronics, the Back-UPS BN450M from APC not only provides power to your critical electronics when the power goes out, but also offers surge, spike, and lighting protection for attached devices. It offers six total NEMA 5-15R outlets, two of which are surge-only outlets and four of which are battery backup & surge outlets, with three of the outlets featuring block spacing to allow bulky transformers to be plugged in without covering other outlets.

The BN450M provides an output capacity of 255W / 450 VA, a nominal output voltage of 120V, an output frequency of 50/60 Hz ±3 Hz, an input voltage of 120V at 50/60 Hz ±3 Hz using its included 5' cord with a NEMA 5-15P plug, has a surge energy rating of 180 joules, and a square waveform. Its sealed, lead-acid battery is maintenance-free and has suspended electrolytes and can be recharged in around 8 hours. When its load is 10W, the BN450M has a runtime of around 214.6 minutes and can also run for 37 minutes when its load is 50W, 15 minutes when its load is 100W, 11 minutes when running a half load of 127.5W, 5 minutes when its load is 200W, and 3 minutes when it is running a full load of 255W. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty and a lifetime connected equipment guarantee of $75,000.

General Features

Stay Connected for Hours During Storms and Blackouts

The BN450M is designed to maximize runtimes for devices such as multiple computers and television equipment that consume high amounts of power. After these devices are safely shut down, the BN450M continues to run low power loads (such as home networking equipment) for over 3 hours during extended outages.

Trusted Power Protection and Convenience

The BN450M features a total of six power outlets, all of which shield your devices against dangerous surges and spikes in voltage. Four of these are battery-backed outlets that will continue to provide power to connected devices when there is an outage. This UPS also offers 3 transformer block spaced outlets, so you can connect bulky transformers without covering other outlets.

ENERGY STAR Rated for Efficiency

The Back-UPS BN450M is ENERGY STAR certified for its efficient operation and ability to help realize lower energy costs.

Warranty and Equipment Protection Policy

The Back-UPS BN450M is covered by a limited 3-year warranty. It also comes with a limited lifetime connected equipment protection policy of up to $75,000. APC will repair or replace attached devices that sustain surge-related damage while properly connected to a registered Back-UPS uninterruptible power supply unit.

Safety

Safety-Agency Approved

Helps ensures the product has been tested and approved to work safely with the connected service provider equipment and within the specified environment.

Protection

Battery-Protected and Surge-Only Outlets

Battery-protected outlets reserve power capacity and run time for connected equipment that require UPS battery backup, while also providing surge-only protection for less critical equipment. Surge-only outlets protect secondary electronics from surges and spikes without reducing battery power used to run primary electronics during an outage.

This provides early-warning fault analysis on batteries, thus enabling timely preventive maintenance.

Automatic Self-Test

A periodic battery self-test ensures early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced.

Power outage? The UPS 450 will give you a single solitary beep that could easily lost among other noises, or mistaken as an alert that something minor has occurred, but everything is ok. before system shuts down completely in ~2 mins slight power fluctuation during normal operation, and not even close to high end of power draw? UNENDING DRONING WHINE THAT PIERCES SKULL AND FORCES YOU TO PERFORM FULL SYSTEM SHUTDOWN, THEN WAIT A MOMENT ON BOOT BEFORE TURNING ON PC, OR ELSE BE FORCED TO START ALL OVER. Want to do a single press on power button for soft reset as described in the user manual? No, no, no. You get an alternating green/red flash to let you know it noticed your press, and mocks your attempt to tell it that everything is ok. THE DRONING WILL CONTINUE. The minor fluctuations occur for me only occasionally (once per 3~4 months probably?), but have had it happen 4 times in ~2 months time once.

I need secure power for two separate systems; mostly to save them the agony of power repeatedly going out and coming back on; for example - Texas storms. One's my desktop Mac system, which has some external SSD drives. It doesn't need much power, and I'd been using an Amazon Basics 400VA box. Which is what I was using also to power the other system, which is a Dish satellite TV recorder and some low-power stuff that needs wifi to communicate with the gate, which can be monitored and remote controlled from an iPhone app. The Amazon Basics UPS was small, low-cost and of adequate capacity and seemed to work well, but during a prolonged absence I discovered in wouldn't power back on again if it shut down during a blackout. Well, it would - but you had to be there to press the power on button; it wouldn't turn back on by itself despite the mains being back. Not a problem for the Mac, but a serious issue for the Dish recorder and the gate controller. So therefore this similar power APC product. Installed in both places. Better arranged outlets (especially these days, with wall warts a-plenty), almost as cheap, slightly more VA capacity. And it turns on when the mains supply comes back.

The company always use APC, easy to repower, we get 3 or 4 repowers out of a unit most of the time. Helps to know you can easily repower in a few minutes and be back up and running, we keep a few batteries in stock just for this purpose

One of those things you hope you never need but are really glad you have when you do need it because the power flickered or surged or went out before you had last saved anything you were working on. I had one APC unit go bad one time after nearly a year, but still within the warranty period, and they replaced it for free and for free shipping of the new one and free shipping of the return of the old one, with no question after they told me over the phone how to reset and that did not solve the problem. Plus I always buy from B&H when I can, because they have been good to me for the past 30 years or so.

Battery is not replaceable

By Mike Stanbro

After several years of service the unit was emitting a continuous alarm. It needs a new battery and according to the documentation, it is not user replaceable. Well, that was a surprise to me as other APC products I have owned have all had replaceable batteries. I won't be buying another to replace it.

Outputs only 80Volts on a 20 watt load

By Robert
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-20

Maybe I have a defective unit? I am using it for a cable modem (20 watts or so). The AC voltage output while plugged into the wall is a good 120VAC. I tested by pulling the plug from the wall and the output voltage measures between 80-90VAC. My modem, of course, shuts off after about a minute due to low voltage. I expected it would maintain at least 110VAC for a at least 10 minutes then shut down completely. This thing creates a brown-out which is what it's supposed to prevent.
