    Been looking at these. But how do you figure out how long a stove would run if it drew 3 amps??

    FYI I originally bought an APC (not the same as what you show) that put out a "step" wave and my motors did not run right. I returned it and got the one in my sig for the same price. Stove runs normally and can go 30-50 minutes depending on convection fan speed.

    Looking to add a battery backup for my Harman P68. I only need it to run long enough for me to pull the generator out of garage and fire it up. My question is I have my Harman unit on a 45 in the corner of the room. My outlet and surge protector are both behind the stove, can I put the battery backup there too or is that too close?

    Thanks & Happy New Year to all

    If you want to extend the run time of your battery backup system you can easily wire a deep cycle battery to the UPS. Every UPS I've seen runs on 12volt sealed lead acid batteries. As long as the UPS output can support the pellet stove then its a simple thing to add a much larger battery to the UPS. I've gotten cheap UPS's at garage sales, etc. as some folks don't seem to know that the batteries in them can be changed! A better long term solution to a power outage is a small inverter generator. I have a Honda EU2000i that ran for 5 days continuous after hurricane Irene. It ran two fridges, the plasma TV and the computers. Next time it will also run the pellet stove if needed. RT

    I have an APC (American Power Conversion) model #BE750G which Harman recommends in their owners manual for the XXV. I have not had any trouble with this UPS. It was cheaper than the CyberPower.

    Alot of those apc backups use 26 or 28v batteries.

    I just had to have them replace a br1000 that went bad.

    I don't know if this will help but i have timberridge 55-trpah (englander 25-pah) using a kill a watt meter on start up it draws 380 watts and then after it gets running stays around 155 watts.
    i plan on making my own battery back up for my 2 stoves.
    so as i figure out what i need and how to make it cheap ill share my info
