You have to determine what the combined wattage requirements of the cameras and dvr are. From this information and the manufacturer's information, you should be able to determine how long this battery backup will keep that equipment running.

Can this battery be used with a sump pump and for how long?

Customer Reviews

550VA UPS Battery Backup is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 149.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Easy, Necessary! These are some of the best UPS's for your money. Super easy to install and use. We use them for our customers and internally for our essential workstations like our 24/7 service desk. We had a power surge just last month that knocked out power to half the building. The computers with this UPS were not affected by the surge and stayed powered without interruption as we needed them to. I highly recommend the Back-UPS 550. They're more than affordable and can protect highly valued assets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from XBOX One savior Recently connected our XBOX & TV to this battery backup. We don't get many power outages, but we did experience a few during Christmas break. It seems to have save a few XBOX games and, with that, many headaches for mom and dad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I upgraded I finally broke down and upgraded my UPS. I had a very good UPS from APC, but since I now use Mac OS 10.8.5, I could not make use of the old UPS. The old UPS did not have a usb port. Well, I did buy it new in 2003 and it worked fine with the older Mac OS 9.x. The new one has a usb port and works great so far. All I had to do was unpack it, open the battery cover, plug in the red connector, replace the cover and plug in the power cord and usb connection to my trusty old iMac. Other than possibly needing to replace the battery at some distant time, I am certain I will get a long life from this UPS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please add mounting holes Great device. Please add mounting holes on the back so the UPS can be hung on the wall. The previous model had these mounting holes. We miss them.
