Looking at buying an Emergency Power Pack (UPBX model)...

This was originally posted on APC forums on 7/8/2008


And I noticed on its specs that it has an output of 5.3 volts instead of 5. Is this the output of the batteries as a whole (meaning it drops the 6.0V Alkalines to 5.3 volts or increases NiMH batteries to 5.3 volts from 4.8V) or the output of the USB port? I feel that 5.3 volts out of the USB port is a bit high...As it passes the recommended 5% range normal electronics exhibit. Any thoughts...Or anyone own this that can test the voltage using a multimeter on fresh AAAs to clarify?

Hi Matt,

I just checked with one of our Mobile Specialists here and they stated that the output voltage (as we're going to get the specs changed on the website), should be 5.0VDC because it's a standard USB output. As far as if it's a float DC charge off the AAA batteries, or whether it comes down from 6.0, it shouldn't matter, as the output voltage should be a stable 5VDC.

Hope this clarifies everything
