What is a UPS?
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) provides emergency power and surge protection if your mains supply fails. At the moment when you lose mains power, any connected devices will be supplied with power stored in the UPS internal batteries. When power is restored the UPS is recharged automatically – a full recharge of this UPS takes approximately eight hours and provides up to 20mins* of emergency power, with a maximum 600W/1000VA output. This allows you to save any data and shut down any connected electrical equipment safely, preventing any damage or corruption to your system hardware that a sudden loss of power can cause.

*Please note: The maximum runtime of a UPS is dependent of the load being drawn at any one time.

What connections are available on this UPS?
The PowerCool PCUPS1000VA provides you with an IEC C14 connection for input power. Three UK mains sockets as well as three IEC C13 connectors act as the outputs for the UPS. Two RJ45 connections are available to provide surge protection for your data lines. A single USB-B connection allows you to connect the UPS to a desktop or laptop computer to allow you to monitor and manage the UPS using the included software.

What does the software tool do?
Event logging can be used with this software to allow you to check the usage of this UPS, whilst a self-test can be performed with scheduling to ensure that the equipment is running optimally. An auto shutdown feature can be configured, so that the connected computer saves any data and powers down should a loss of power be detected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but please read on! Alrighty then, i purchased this from maplin a few days ago, and its heavy! so make sure you park close. The unit is very easy to use, simply plug it in, and then plug in the devices you wish to power from it. The software was easy to install, (the serial code for it is on the cd packet) and you can set it up to automatically shut down your pc in event of a power fault automatically. I set mine to run for 15 minutes before automatic shutdown, or instantly if the battery in the unit is getting low. I tested the duration on my Dell Poweredge 2950 Server, which is running 5 disks and dual quad processors etc, and also a monitor was plugged in, and altogether it draws 280watts idling. At this power, the UPS kept it running for 10 minutes (ish) before a low battery alarm, and shutting the server down correctly. All in all, a very good unit and easy to use and set up, however the software has settings for email notifications. but i cant get this to work at all. (tried with gmail). Good quality product! (even if the instructions are in pidgeon english chinese)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic but good Perfect unit to control over and under surges and power outs. Reliable and just does what it says.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid I bought one of these about a month ago. The first one would not connect via the USB port and was returned. The second and third ones connected OK but refused to charge above 64%. Both were returned. Eventually replaced by a Trust Oxxtron which did everything it said on the box. Powercool is one to avoid in my opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Software doesn't work Bought this 2 years ago. Worked fine. Now I need the software to work to find out why it isn't keeping powered up (I suspect the batteries need replacing) - and the software doesn't work, at least not on widows 10. No information about it anywhere, no upgrades etc. available and the online help manual website just throws a totally weird windows DLL error. No help, no-how, no-way, no-chance. Why doesn't Maplin chase this up with the manufacturers !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy. Bought my UPS from Maplin yesterday. Charged it for the required 24hrs,then installed it onto my Dell P.C. running Windows 7. Attempted to run the software, all downhill from there. The s/ware disc supplied only runs with stuff older than Windows 7.

This item will work fine with UK mains equipment. It's possibly a website error.

Hi, I've bought this powercool UPS like half a year ago; stopped working since a week. If I plug it in, it switches from yellow-green to red and starts beeping. If I connect anything to it, it's working but isn't charging. What could be the issue?
