Overloading a Back-UPS Pro 1500

This was originally posted on APC forums on 7/11/2012


Hello everyone, had a quick question about overloading a Back-UPS Pro 1500.

The unit has a capacity of 865 watts / 1500VA. At max usage, it'll run 4min.
Is it safe to double it's capacity (2x 3560 V2 switches at 870 watts each)?
What would the run time be, 2min? 1min?

Thanks!

i don't think this will work. you'll overload the UPS and it will give you a loud constant tone and I am pretty sure it won't output power anyway in this state.
