They are 1 amp / 25 watts per port. We have installed about 5 of them so far and they work good

Got a shipment of 10 of them in a month ago. They work awesome!

I know their rating is kinda low for batteries. But they hold up two full size car batteries just fine. Takes a long time to charge them up, but also takes a long time to drain them.

Well worth the $$ so far. Just wish the ports could be switchable between 24/48 to take into account the new Ubnt gear that runs on 48.

Also wish the damn thing had proper SNMP with voltage readouts so I could actually monitor the freaking batteries and incoming power

Just got one a few days ago and looks and feels high quality. Also didn't know it had the controls on the front now as the box, pictures, and manual don't reference it. This must be the third production run they did.

I would also love some voltage monitoring and alerts to let me know when AC power goes out. Email digital loggers and maybe they can add it with new software if they already have hardware that supports it.

Does this device support SNMP so you could have your monitoring software notify you if the power is out ?

edit: I just picked up a apc AP9617 for this exact reason but would prefer a product like this.

Even if it doesnt do it via SNMP, does it have values in a web interface or via a CLI?

Should be possible to write a script to "screen scrape" and produce the required output to interface into a monitoring system.

Ive done it a few times for gear that doesnt offer anything decent (or anything at all) via SNMP. Ive written scripts to interface to Nagios and mon (both of which operate in a very similar way.)

Poor man:

I plug in some device into non-backuped power, give it an IP that I can ping with X monitoring software (the dude), and if the power goes off, I get an email, lol.

EDIT: I just installed this thing today (not production yet) and the rack ears are too big for my rack, I had trim them with an angle grinder 1/4 inch off each side to get it to fit.

That's what I do too, and it work quite well. I've been able to recycle a lot of RB133's for that purpose.

Inssomniak,

VERY RIGHT! And it downright pisses me off! I found out the hard way when I got up on a site and went to rack it with minimal tools only to find out there wasn't a chance in f*** it was going to happen.

I don't know what the engineers were smoking when they sized this thing, but it does NOT fit most 19" racks. I managed to get it to fit into a good clip-square-nut rack, but barely. If you're dealing with round screw hole racks, forget it, get a shelf.

That's an awesome idea
