#86 Generic min ups 8800mah
When looking for a suitable min ups for my CCTV cameras and WiFi router I found a wide selection on takealot. After doing some research I noticed that the Q-UP1000 mini ups was listed by many vendors but at varying prices. Many companies had rebranded the device and increased their price quite dramatically.
Finally I came across a deal selling the device for under R500.00 and I purchased 2 Andowl devices. Once I received the devices I was impressed with the quality of cables and the plastic mold of the box. (There are no screws to unscrew the box simply pops open)
Once the box was open I noticed a decent PCB with all the necessary protection circuits. There are two mystery chips though.
The product was made recently (at least at the time of writing this article) and the designers made the batteries easily accessible for swaps which is awesome.
Now a negative thing I noticed is the 12000mAh claim… clearly the batteries are four 2.200mAh INR18650’s and this adds to 8.800mAh
There can be many reasons for this capacity “lie” but other than that the mini ups is looking good. Time will tell if this was a decent investment.
