Wait, what?

Wait, what?

An uninterruptible power supply with a larger VA from a competitor of Battery Backup Power, Inc. runs out of juice before a smaller Battery Backup Power, Inc. unit at the same load. How is this possible?

Our competitors went cheap on the number of batteries hoping a higher VA number distracted from the minimal run time.

An 850 VA / 510 Watt uninterruptible power supply with a single 12 Volt, 8.5 Amp Hour battery and a power factor of 0.6 from our competitor only runs 59% (7 minutes, 21 seconds) the time the Battery Backup Power, Inc. 600 VA / 360 Watt uninterruptible power supply with two 12 Volt, 7.2 Amp Hour batteries and a power factor of 0.6 runs with a 300 watt load (12 minutes, 26 seconds).
