J25B and monster power line conditioner

This was originally posted on APC forums on 12/15/2011


I just got a J25B a/v battery backup. I want to use this in my home theater where i have a Monster Power HT3600 ( http://www.amazon.com/Monster-MKII-10-Outlet-Power-Center/dp/B000AYDQB6 ) . I have most of my equipment plugged into the monster power but got the J25B so that it will keep my directv dvr (and a couple other things) powered if power goes out.

I want to plug the J25B into the wall and then plug the Monster Power into the battery backup outlet of the J25B. The only other thing plugged into the J25B will be a desktop running windows home server.

Is there any issue with this?

Thanks

Hi
Rob, You noted that it is not good to plug any surge protection device into another surge protection device.  I hope this does not apply when your house main fusebox has a whole house surge protector, does it? 

Also,  I have an outdoor backup generator and am looking for something to do a little conditioning of the power it supplies during power outages assuming that it is advisable.  I have a j25b and was considering adding a j35 since I have a high power AV receiver as well as a computer and several other audio devices like 65 inch 4k tv, a good blu ray player,  Dish Network sat dish etc. Would I be better with a j35 or an H10 or H 15 with a ups for power backup between the power outage and my firing up the generator outside (It is a 7 Kw gasoline driven unit)?

Hi chewybtc, I can;t speak too much for the monster products but i know from out products it is not recommended to plug any surge device into another surge device (whether that be a surge protector into a surge protector or a UPS into a surge type device and vice versa). The best suggestion would be to plug each device into its own wall outlet. Hope this helps.
