CyberPower PR1500LCD Line-Interactive UPS System

Offering battery backup protection for servers, telecom equipment, VoIP and internetworking hardware requiring pure sine wave output and Active PFC power source compatibility.

Why You Need It:
When power goes out for even a second it can result in data loss and hardware damage which can shorten equipment life expectancy. This battery backup unit provides sufficient emergency runtime power to allow for safe closure of open files and proper shut down of electronics when an outage occurs. In addition, it safeguards electronics from commonly occurring power surges caused by storms, activity on the power grid or high-powered equipment turning on and off. Full buck/boost Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) stabilizes incoming voltage, preventing costly business interruptions and chronic problems caused by minor but frequent power fluctuations.

Typical Use

Provides backup power and surge protection for corporate and departmental servers, telecom equipment, VoIP and Internetworking hardware requiring pure sine wave output and Active PFC power source compatibility. Safeguards valuable documents, image files and connected equipment from loss or damage due to power fluctuations and surges, as well as uncontrolled equipment shutdown caused by power interruptions.


Surge Protection — Prevents damage to equipment from surges and spikes, including lightning, and also safeguards telephone and fax equipment, cable modems and routers from power surges traveling through unprotected phone or data lines. The amount of energy a surge protector can absorb is measured in joules. A higher joule rating means more protection.

ENERGY STAR Qualified — Recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as one of the most energy efficient battery backup units available.

Full Buck/Boost Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) — Corrects minor power fluctuations, including under and over-voltages, without switching to the battery, thereby extending battery life - essential in areas where power fluctuations occur frequently.

Extendable LCD Panel — Displays 41 battery backup vitals and customizable operating settings, up to 4.5 feet (1.37m) away from the unit, for easy monitoring of run-time and power conditions.

Additional Features

Energy-Saving Technology — GreenPower UPS Bypass Design saves energy costs by reducing power consumption and heat buildup.

Remote Computer Monitoring — PowerPanel Business Edition management software allows for controlling and monitoring the battery backup remotely, when an optional network card is installed, to safeguard open files and connected equipment during an outage.

USB & Serial Communication Ports — Allows communication between the battery backup unit and the PowerPanel software installed on the connected computer to enable power management and auto shutdown functionality.

Noise Filtering — Advanced EMFI/RFI noise filtering coils reduce electromagnetic and radio frequency interference that cause disruptive humming and static.

LED Status Indicators — LED icons on the battery backup unit indicate: Power On, On-Line, On-Battery and Replace Battery, as well as Wiring Fault (to warn users of building wiring problems, such as improper grounding, that could inhibit surge protection or cause shocks). When the Wiring Fault icon is lit, a professional electrician should be contacted to correct the problem.

Audible Alarms — Distinctive tones sound when the backup unit is on battery power, overloaded or low on power. The alarm can be silenced if desired.

2 out of 5 eggsNuts, bolts, washers bouncing around inside unit

Pros: Works well after I fixed it.
The display is very useful.
Unit does cold-boot.

Cons: When the package arrived, I moved the package and heard loose hardware rattling around inside. I initiated an RMA, but the shipping was going to cost approximately one-quarter the cost of the purchase, so I decided to open it up and investigate after speaking with CyberPower CS. The pair of bolts/washers/nuts that are supposed to hold the fuse to the two batteries were not assembled. It was as if someone placed the hardware on top of the batteries, saw that it was quitting time, slapped the protective cover over the terminals and called it a day.

Two other small issues:
1) The sheet metal was slightly misshapen in a couple of areas. A little force straightened it out.

2) The power outlets do not seem like they will take a lot of insertion/removal cycles. They are adequate for a UPS.

Other Thoughts: The unit came with a QA sheet that was stamped for various items. Obviously there was a process failure.

CyberPower support is great. I called before ordering to ask about cold booting (it does) and after the unit arrived with the loose hardware. Both times they answered very quickly and were very helpful.

I do like the unit, but did not expect to have to spend the time, risk and aggravation of resolving this issue.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product

Pros: What can I say, it does what it is supposed to do without unnecessary bells and whistles (or beeps). The price is reasonable.
The wired remote display and control is a great feature.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: After a lot of research, decided on this for an ESXi host. First off, THANK YOU to CyberPower for making a ridiculously easy to use virtual appliance that can be loaded right in to ESXi. Did not feel like dealing with command line to safely shut down VMs during power failure. Email notifications and level of configuration for the virtual appliance made this a no brainer.

This unit seems to be at the high end of the sweet-spot for capacity, price, physical size, and features.

Cons: none so far, none expected

Other Thoughts: Started using CyberPower as an alternative to APC. This will be the 3rd unit personally (different models), though we deploy many of both brands in our business environments. One CyberPower unit MUST be around 10 years old...? Still going. Did replace the batteries, but that's to be expected and was simple.

Both brands seem great, nothing against APC. Sometimes it comes down to the extra features or cost. In this case, the software to manage shutdowns, pure sine wave for active PFC PSUs, and long runtime combined.

4 out of 5 eggsDesigned for a Server application

Pros: Designed for a Server application - my last batteries that seemed to be the same as in this unit, lasted about five years, with no problems, specifically the Cyberpower OP1500 AVR (obsolete),

Cons: Shipping boxes NEEDS improvement (scraps of cardboard would be sufficient most probably) – on the bottom, between the two styrofoam edge/corner pieces. Basically, a person (like the UPS guy) who I watched carried it to my door with the box on his shoulder, there perhaps 2” of empty space, and only the 1/8" thick cardboard box to act as “support?” for 50+ Ibs. This is the second Cyber Power (mid size that has this problem). Same results probably if moving the box with a dolly. The bottom of the box had been re-taped, and a tear in the box itself of significance, styrofoam package material on the bottom had more five distinct breaks in them I really did not want to have inspect the batteries in the unit, prior to using it, and then charge it outside away from any structure.

If this UPS was to be used in a server environment, (i.e., in use 24 hr/day 365 days per year), I'd give it 5 stars, if it were not for the packaging.

Reason for 4 star rating

If this is for a small office environment, say used between 7 am and 6 pm daily, I would consider another CyberPower unit or buying this unit with a timer switch( two pole) The PR1500LCD (1050 Watts Maximum) typically draws between 45 Watts to 75 Watts, (new), with no load when the UPS turned off. My Cyberpower 1500AVR (700 Watt Maximum) , and PP1500 (900 Watt Maximum) draws just 10 Watts. Per CyberPower Technical Support 50 Watts is typically for the PR1500LCD. The average price of electricity is about $0.11 per KWHr ( in the USA ), basically if this Unit is turn off (unplugged from AC power – not just turn off) 12 hours per day, one would save enough on electricity to replace the of the batteries in less than two years, about $60.00 (w/o shipping cost), the nominal size of the batteries are (two) 7.13” length, 2.99” width, 6.54” height), 12 V, 20 AHr. - Same as the battery as far as I can tell is used in the Cyberpower OP1500 AVR (obsolete model) . The marking if any were not readable on the batteries, an adhesive was used to “hold them together”. Part number for the OP1500 AVR battery was EVP-20-12 another P/N FM12170, about 20+ different part numbers for this "style" of battery (sold individually with out the double side adhesive, I would assume) , there is a listing out there, one should never have a problem finding replacement batteries. Also, by not constantly charging the batteries this should prolong the batteries life and also by reducing the average temperature of the batteries and charging electronics – see Wiki Arrhenius Model. The batteries lasted five year or so on my OP1500 AVR – with light usage.

Thermal Design is for air flow is far superior than that of the OP1500 AVR (obsolete CyberPower model).

A light coating of anti-corrosion spray was not applied by the mfg on the terminal connectors of the batteries.

5 out of 5 eggsHeavy Duty!

Pros: This unit is built like a tank, which is good because it needs to be sturdy to support the heavy battery inside. Detachable control panel is nice for testing, especially since nobody's going to put this beast of a unit on a table. Link software works well, but does not always send me an email like it's supposed to.

Sine wave output works correctly with ThermalTake Toughpower Grand PSUs (which means that newer PSU won't kill power during a transfer from AC to battery).

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This unit currently drives my CPU, network, a laptop, and a number of peripherals, while the old APC 1500 has been given monitor support duty. I'll admit that I was initially doubtful of any UPS that didn't come from APC, but after having this for a couple months, I can say that I would definitely buy another CyberPower.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works like it supposed to. With the unpredictable Kansas weather outages are pretty common. Most are just a second or two but sometimes an hour or more. I tested this unit and it lasted over two hours. I have a 900 W Cyberpower for the 42" monitor that will also last two hours. I really like the detachable control panel. I put this under a shelf on the floor and it would be pretty awkward to see it if it didn't have this feature. Since I got these we have had one short outage and the computer performed like nothing happened. Both units barely even get warm in use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: No one should be without a UPS on their computer. Power glitches can both damage the hardware and corrupt files. I had a system crash that was unrecoverable due to this.
