Hey, I'm in the market for a UPS to run a few things. I want to get one to keep my ONT + router run during a black out, as well as my Raspberry Pi + a monitor for it. My friend said a 600W UPS should do the job but I'm unsure, I would like it to run for a few hours. The ONT sucks about 12W if I remembered correctly, the monitor about 27, the Pi about 3.5W, and I'm unsure about the router (its a standard Actiontec one from Verizon). Thanks for any help in advance!

A 600W (1000VA) UPS will not meet your requirements. You need a 1400VA or more. http://www.apc.com/products/family/index.cfm?id=29&tab=... (set Power Draw to 50W as your requirements are slightly lower and select models that provide the correct voltage for your environment). You can presume that a similar UPS from another manufacturer would provide approximately the same run time.

The Actiontec router consumes 16 Watts so that brings your total power consumption up to 58.5 Watts.

Based on a load value of 60 Watts and 3 hour run time here are some various UPS selectors minimum estimates:

Eaton Corporation
Best Value: Rating (VA/Watts) 1000/700
Best Performance: Rating (VA/Watts) 1000/900

Tripp Lite
1000VA/750Watts

Cyber Power
1000VA/750Watts

Thank you sir, hopefully I'll find a solid UPS with 750W! :D
