On March 5, 2011 a huge thunderstorm with hundreds of lightning strikes caused a main power line to fall in the alley. It sent 7200 volts into my home. Blowing out the master breaker and the complete breaker panel. I was working at the computer when I heard the blast in my house and all the lights went out except my computer. The BK350 kept everything running until I shut it off a few seconds later. It protected the Computer, Scanner, Printer, Work Light and a Radio. Two days later when our system was restored I turned on the computer. It would come on, but not stay on. I hit the reset button on BK350 and it exploded internally. I removed it and put a backup in place and the computer ran fine. It saved my computer and accessories.

old software documentation doesn't match the software, which is odd since the software itself hasn't been updated in 5 years so how old does that make the documentation? I replaced the battery in my UPS but the software (v3.0.2) reflects I have less than 1 minute of battery. The documentation says to reset the battery replacement date, but where? It does not say, and looking at the most recent (again, 5 years old) software interface provides no indication where I can do that. Nor is there any place to trigger a battery self-test, which is also mentioned in the documentation. So, if I can't get the unit to recognize a new battery I may just change to a different vendor. In the apc forums someone said they used a really really old version of powerchute (v1.x) and in that version they were able to reset the replacement date. This shouldn't be necessary. Plus, this site no longer provides those other versions for download so how am I supposed to try that method if I don't already have an old version archived on my computer from a previous download?

Great Unit

By 

from Mentor OH

Comments about APC BK500 Back-UPS CS Battery Backup System, 6 Outlets, 500 VA, 480 J:

Needed to replace my APC ES350. So I decided to go with this model since I have the larger 1500 versions that have been running for years without a problem. It has been a few months now using this for my modem/router and it has performed amazing. What I replaced was actually the second ES350, which honestly are junk, they typically die within a year and replacing the battery only extends this another 3-6 months before the rest dies, usually killing a good battery inside. I went through 2 ES350 models within 30 months which is abysmal when my XS1500 models have been running for years flawlessly (only need to replace the batteries every 3-4 years).

Solid Product

Comments about APC BK500 Back-UPS CS Battery Backup System, 6 Outlets, 500 VA, 480 J:

This a great value for an inexpensive UPS that does everything that the manufacture states in the advertisement. I have purchased many UPS but APC Pro always delivers where others have failed. The only con is that it takes a serial cable input to have auto shutdown.
