Re: APC Back-UPS 550 Finally Giving Scream of Death After 7 Years

Half the batteries on e-bay/amazon are fakes from china or just using crap components. Reading the reviews is scary. bar-codes.jpg fake-batteries.jpg T...

Re: Wireless outdoor webcam suggestions

I second the Arlo. It goes to the cloud, but only records when there is movement. They were just half off for Black Friday too.

Talked with APC a bit and they are game for sending some models out for review. Thinking about going with the BR1500MS for the office as it has some nice features like SineWave and USB Type-C charge ports. It's 900W and runs just under $190 on Amazon .

Wow, those are pretty good prices at Best Buy for the 650VA. Amazon wants $74 and Walmart wants $72.

techbatterysolutions.com Wants $31 shipped for a new battery... So, $31 to put a new battery in or ~$70 after tax to buy a new model... ugh
