    APC BR24BPG reviews

    24V External Battery Pack is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best In Class! Excellent external battery pack > coupled with the APC BR1500G Back UPS Pro results in an outstanding backup power supply. Perfect for SOHO small office home office networks and/or surveillance, security systems. This UPS setup, supporting an i7-2600K machine with two monitors, six HD PTZ surveillance cameras and related switches, etc., provides 117 minutes of run-time if/when the power goes out. Outstanding! Be advised a power outage will trigger the cooling fan/charging cycle/systems check for approximately 1-2 hours. It's All Good. At least you will know the UPS is working properly and protecting your electronics. Best in Class!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra backup power for your gear If you have a back-ups that is compatible with this external battery pack, it is worth the investment to get this. I use this with the UPS on my computer and it triples the runtime of my PC while in game. Went from appx. 18 minutes without, adding this extended runtime to almost an hour. Power draw of my PC when in game is about 375 watts. The only downside I see from purchasing this is the length of the cable to connect to the main UPS. It is only about a foot long, however this is not a problem for me as it is long enough to connect and hide behind my equipment.
    Date published: 2015-02-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised The addition of this auxiliary unit brings my 500 watt load hold-up time with the 1500VA main unit from 10 to 40 minutes which matches the manufacturer web site graphical specification. This is critical to enable saving my audio recording session files when tracking if the power goes out or is cycling. Ten minutes, and potentially less as the battery ages, was just cutting it too close. This fills the potential line power gaps between my backup generator turning on and off or if it fails completely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it says. as advertised The unit plugs into the back of an existing APC 1500 unit. I have a 1250 that does not have the plug. So that is a check to make sure it will work, just check the back of your UPS for the plug. It increases the run time by a lot. I had it plugged in to a newer unit just to see the extended run time on the digital display but I'm using it on a much older unit that does not have a display. It is hot swappable. Not sure if that is recommended but just for grins I plugged it into a unit while it was up and running. The fan came on for about a minute then off and it's been happy ever since. So to conclude, if you have a UPS with the external battery plug on the back and need longer run time, this is a great product before you buy a serious commercial unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Weather Protection Winter storms can bring power outages in our island community, so some sort of protection is virtually mandatory. Adding the 24V External Battery Pack to our already competent 1500VA UPS has extended our working time to over 90 minutes, with a CPU, three monitors and an inkjet printer attached. No more having to postpone finishing up a project when the power fails.
    Date published: 2012-09-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this if you need more time Bought this along with a BR1500G. Now my modem and wi-fi can run for 10.5 hours during an outage.
    Date published: 2017-11-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost twice the duration. I have lived through one too many power outage. Buying the external battery pack almost doubles the duration of the back up provided by the APC 1500 Back UPS device. Take it out of the box and plug it in. Excellent designed product. Alas, the provided manual is somewhat lacking. The tech support was readily available by phone and quite helpful.
    Date published: 2014-12-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 times the Runtime! This wonderful accessory (for the Back-UPS Pro models) can extend the runtime of the normal UPS up to a minimum of 47 minutes! However, with light loads, the increase can be *many hours* of runtime. A large increase in assurance for not that much more money!
