1) Make sure you prep the battery properly (usually you turn it on, read the manual how to do this correctly. You may also have to pull a seperator tab on new batteries.)
2) Make sure the devices you want to be hooked up to the battery are plugged into the “Battery Backup” box and not the “Surge Protection Only” location.
3) READ THE MANUAL!

AL, I find it highly unlikely you had problems with 2 different batteries that were both manufacturer issues

Good luck,

Aaron, Systems administrator Samsung

My question before I open it and try it. I have a power recliner which the battery back up little box wire broke, the chair still works same as always. I can’t insert a new battery because of broken wire. So I now don’t have a battery backup on chair. I am handicapped so a lot of times I do sleep in this chair. If I use this will it serve as a battery backup if my power goes out. My power does go out a lot, sometimes as much as 30 times in a year. power company says bad wires, but they won’t fix wires. Trying out other options since I do take a water pill, and when you have to go you have to go. Thanks Email please if possible.

Does the device still work? Are you experiencing noticeable Battery Management issues? The device makes a clicking noise when it engages the backup power supply. This is normal. Also it could be the automatic voltage regulation of the device. Again, this is normal. It’s a sign of brownouts or surges and the device compensating for the loss or surge of power. Have you recently had some kind of high powered electrical device installed in or around your home? Is the device plugged directly into the wall outlet and not in an extension of some sort? These can be issues to cause voltage regulation in the device. I hope this helps sort the problem.

The line from your phone base connecting to the wall jack plugs into the APC unit (network in). The cord that came with your APC is the line out and plugs into the jack on the phone handset. Hope that was easy enough. :)

I’m totally overwhelmed with this UPS and I know it’s a simple thing because nothing should be as hard as I’ve made this out to be, but please help. I am so not computer literate I just bought a APC Back UPS and on the side there is a (network in) and A (network out) port which are obviously designed for the phone connections but this is where it gets confusing… I understand that one has to be for the phone cord leading from the phone wall jack, but the cord that came in the box, what do I with it what am I plugging it into? Please be specific and not technical at all. I’m still learning. Hopefully there are No dumb questions, just uneducated PC Users. :)

Keep in mind, it HAS to be a single-outlet extension cord only.

I need a longer cord and the one we bought is too short. Can I plug in my APC Back-UPS ES 750 to a heavy gauge extension cord? I need about 6-9 feet and I see no other way to work this because of how this desk was built. What are the repercussions, if any?? Thanks!

P.S. I haven’t had any problems with my battery backup. We own 3.

Have owned 3 in my life and none have ever done a damned thing except emit a screeching “beep” non stop to let me know 2 things; 1, they failed their self test and 2, apparently I’m not allowed to sleep in ever on the few days I’d otherwise be able to. The few times we’ve lost power, the battery has never once kicked in at all, not even during tests.

Here I am awake and thoroughly pissed off at 8am on a Sunday. I’m taking this latest unit out into my driveway and swinging it into the concrete a few times before tossing the remains in the garbage bin where it belongs. A standard $10 power strip would have served me better than this overpriced trash. Fuck you APC.
