Ensure the UPS still supplies power then you can get a 12 AWG copper wire to do the connection. Be careful not to short-circuit the battery.

It stil suplies power, I tested it again before modifying. Let me do d 12AWG copper wire. Thank u.

Mine is that when you connect to PHCN, there is power supply from the back of the UPS but it doesn't supply from the back of the UPS when its connected battery.
I really dont understand the issue of 12AWG copper wire stuff. Please can you explain to me please?

Kindly ensure its supplies from the battery before cos that's very important for the Setup to workout or better still, take it to a radionic to checkout the power board to see if nothing has gone wrong on the board.

It's not the normal house wiring one this one is the flexible 12 AWG copper wire.

i just have some few questions to ask.

How much will a total package cost if using a new ups with the set up.

Is it neccessary to use ups even when it has its own charger and battery or we can make do with the charger and battery without ups.


What is the importance of using ups with the setup


how long will it last if am to use the package for only charging of phones and laptops


can one connect extension to it so that it can spread for usage in charging other devices.

Also how much is the total package if you are to set it up with new ups and transport

can it be charged with a small tiger generator

To my awareness, a new 650VA "blue gate" UPS costs 10,500 here. it's just adding the price of other things needed in the Setup to it which is the battery with Charger-15k, and anderson-1500. it makes a total of 27k.

secondly, The battery that comes with the UPS is mostly a 7.2/ 8Ah sealed lead acid battery that doesn't last more than 30 mins but am replacing that with a 40Ah LiFePO4 ( Lithium ferro phosphate or Lithium iron phosphate battery which is the latest technology of battery chemistry.) The UPS charges at a voltage of 13.3V while the battery charger charges at a voltage of 14.6V sir. This is a clear indication that one is going to be faster than the other.
Have written on several ways of using the battery without UPS which for you to run 12V DC devices on it e.g security cameras, DC motor pumping machine, LED lights, Rechargeable lamps , rechargeable fans et cetera.

The importance is that the UPS is being used as an inverter here which converts the 12V battery output to 220V( DC to AC)

it lasts longer compared to when you use it to power other energy consuming items.

For sure

Same amount as earlier calculated. just that I will do the modifications for you and that's all. Transport is by waybill. For those around Rivers ,Delta route it's 2000 naira presently. it means it depends on location moreover you pay the driver when he arrives and handover your package( I mean t- fare ).

Lastly, it can.

Hope have been able to answer your questions Sir?

Good Morning to you all
so what is the essence of using a charger since you said the one needs the ups. Does it mean that one can't use it without ups since you said the ups serve as inverter, what then is the main lp40 used for. I thought that is the inverter.


Also, how long will it last if i am to use only laptop and mobile phone with it. You made mentioned of new ups lasting 30 minutes, does it mean that even with fairly used ups the set up can still last like when one used a new ups.


How much is the total package if i am to use a fairly used ups

I can't comprehend your first question.

I don't sell used UPS.you can always look for it around you

It's like youve not really gone through my previous posts, kindly do sir

how long does the charger take to fully charge the battery after it has been discharged.

want to knw how fast the charger is

How long approximately does it take for the UPS internal charger to fully charge the 40ah battery as compared to the dedicated charger you've talked about?

I need to know the charging time if I use the UPS to charge the battery and also if I use the dedicated charger. Thanks.

Dedicated takes 6 hours while the UPS internal charger takes longer than that. it is sometimes very difficult to take a record of that because it does all sorts of regulation which makes it stop charging for some time and picks up. Have not experienced full charging with internal charger before but if the PHCN supply in your area is good( doesn't fluctuate that much) you might get to know that. Thanks

If you need AC current, you must get a device to convert the DC current to AC. That's where the UPS/ inverter comes in.
