Backup Power

I keep my power head, and a backup heater connected to my batteries. That way if I lose power, the vital stay on until I make it home. With just one power head, and a heater, the backup will last a lot longer.

Yeah the guy at Best Buy said the same thing

How long do you think that would last? Box only says 35 minutes and I'm thinking it wasn't anticipating pumps, but rather something like a computer. I'm curious to know how much power it holds. Thirty minutes is definitely better than no minutes :)

I think it would run the pumps for hours due to the low wattage of the pumps

I'm curious about run time as well. Did a quick lookup and calculation just for the fun of it. That particular UPS has a sealed lead acid 12v 3.6 amp hour battery. The MP40's max wattage is 38 watts. If you had two running at max power (which you might not) you would get about 5 hours run time. That is, if only the MP40s were connected. I could be wrong, but it would give you at least enough time to get to your tank.
