    Default Re: How long would a UPS power this?

    It is very easy to knock up a simple UPS to power a modem, all you need is a crimping tool and some connectors and some wire, and a lead to connect to the router. Anyone used to working around computers could do it.

    Connect SLA batteries in parallel, get a proprietary smart charger. connect up...done. I also added a diode in the supply to the router to drop the voltage a tad, but not absolutely necessary. The second photo shows the charger, the grey thing with an orange light showing.

    If I had this:

    Power dies. It's only powering this:

    How long would you expect it to run for before it dies?

    Cheers


    Chill.
    You might run into another issue: some routers will turn themselves off on a very small load, like a router.
