power connections on back of unit.

This was originally posted on APC forums on 7/5/2014


I purchased 3 different ups and all of them have really close power outlet connections making it very difficult to plug in 5 small devices that can definitely be supplied enough power during an outage,  I just can't plug all of them in to the APC ups due to the size of the power adapters from said devices. Any help would be appreciated. I was going to use an outlet strip or something. Please help.

Thank you Mblive for your response. I am very new to all of this stuff and not quite a computer wiz, yet;) But,I think I found a solution to my problem on Amazon. They are little 8-12" extension cords that allow you to plug your larger pwr adptrs from modems, hd, router etc into one end, then the other side Into the pdu.

The "strip" for a UPS is typically referred to as PDU.

They come in all different shapes and sizes, depending on the application and your budget.

APC make a variety (mostly for rack applications) but there are plenty of other sources available if they don't have one that meets your needs.

I've even had custom power distribution units made for soft-wiring (Wieland GST18 style) hot-desking to UPS units.

From my experience, the main thing to keep in mind is not to exceed the max power-draw on the UPS outlet.
