  • It works very well. And has a real decent runtime.

  • Great battery, allows me to safe shutdown my pc.

What customers say about "Features"
APC SMC1500I Uninterruptible Power Supply 1500VA
  • The USB interface is simple and it controls my Synology DS 1513+.
  • Looks good, it quiet and does the job perfectly.
  • Few weeks in and works like a charm. Very easy setup, coped with a number of powercuts already flawlessly.
  • LCD screen is larger whereas the others are like a single line textbox.
  • Annoyingly the notification email set up won't work with MS O365 - you have to roll O365 back.
APC SMC1500IC Uninterruptible Power Supply 1500VA
  • These have survived multiple power spikes and power cuts and work flawlessly.
  • The display is simple and intuitive, the apparatus given also its capabilities, is a little big and heavy but I would say that it is not at all a defect.
  • It does not heat the slightest and its ability to intervene, which I tested in various situations, is ready and excellent.
  • The cloud is a great tool that allows you to detect power drops.
  • The only negative nonta is the cloud part a bit minimalist and with few functions.
