UPS Power Wattage and model Recommendation(918+)

Unread post by doremigos » Tue Mar 13, 2018 12:49 am

Hello,

I recently bought a 4 bay 918+ Synology NAS and looking for a decent UPS. So far the search has been daunting. There are very few models listed for the 18 series and I understand that is due to the series being new and Synology cannot test every single UPS model available in the US market. Said that , I have a couple of questions.

1) Why are the models listed on Synology website are in the higher VA range ( 1000 - 1500 VA). I am planning to use the UPS only for my NAS and router and 1500VA would be an overkill.
2) Any first-hand experiences of finding a compatible UPS with the 18 series or 918+ specifically ?\

Thanks a lot for your help.

Thanks for your response. Can I use CP850PFCLCD instead as i don't need a 1000 VA ?

Sure if you’re not connecting a bunch of devices, should work out.
