Another 12 hour power outage while the power company replaces poles and does other maintenance.

Luckily this thing can run my fibre router, Synology server and a big floor standing fan for most of those 12 hours.

One of the best $150 I've spent since moving to the Philippines.

@TheThirdMan

Yep. I think it's 80Ah.

Vital in a country where the power grid is built out of second hand Chinese cast-offs.

@fossil I've been looking at getting one too. We also live in a cyclone-prone area where power cuts are frequent. I want a 240V version of this egopowerplus.com/nexus-portabl The model they sell here is tiny in comparison. It's from the same outfit that made my line trimmer and the batteries are interchangeable.

@TheThirdMan

That's not going to power you for long. 20Ah (4 x 5Ah batteries) isn't much.

@fossil I guess it depends on the situation. The longest we've been without power is 18 days. That's generator territory.
