Some CyberPower UPSes might posture a fire danger.

I was taking a look at a video on YouTube that recommends that some CyberPower UPSes might consist of an element glue that can break down and end up being conductive gradually. The glue can short out elements and might even trigger a fire. The CP1500 PFCLCD and CP1350 PFCLCD UPSes of a minimum of rev 1 and rev 2 over the last 10 years include yellow glue which ends up being conductive and destructive with time which can trigger often intense failure.

There appears to be no reference of this on the CyberPower site. I take place to own a number of these CyberPower UPSes and believed I would hand down this information to anybody that might be intrigued here.

Here is the video:

i’ve seen problems of that glue by more then one electronic repair work individuals on youtube that things was utilized all though out the 70 s 80 s 90 s. they never ever truly stated anything about fire however did state that it can short pack out triggering it not to work which it can consume traces. on old audio/video equipment they typically simply select the glue and clear out any mess or rust it might have triggered.

If you have these UPSes can you determine the glue resistance with a multimeter? Much buzz on YouTube.

That’s why I utilize APC. When the battery dies they provide you to sell the entire system for more recent design and you send your old system back for recycling.

Good to understand, I have among those inexpensive Cyberpower UPS 1350 VA systems at my test bench. All my other systems are Triplite.

I had a 1980 s Sony amp with that adhesive in it. Begun rusting things and triggering periodic operation about 10 years earlier. Took ages to clean it off.

ya according to one repair work person on utube he worked for a sony service centre in the 80 s he stated sony was extremely huge on utilizing that things however lots of other business utilized it. it was a yellow colour when they used it however it turned brown for many years i seen a number of videos were he got equipment because had unusual periodic problems and all he did was select the glue and the problems began disappearing some need extra cleansing if it was left enough time things will begin to get green rust on it and at some point even needs trace repair work.

If you’re all right with aftermarket batteries, you might simply change the battery yourself and continue utilizing the system, too. I’ve had excellent outcomes with these batteries, readily available in your area: https://www.upsbatterycenter.ca/

Same. I had one 1300 PFCLCD stop working in the very same method. Will be watching on this.

Deal with it.

If more than one producer utilizes this kind of glue and understand what takes place to it in the long term, perhaps it’s their method of prepared obsolescence? Type of how like those low-cost RCA televisions last just up until the service warranty goes out …

lots of business have actually utilized it as far back as the 70 s. the majority of the time when u took something in for repair work the techs would simply select all that glue out and it would be great. After early to mid 2000 less and less individuals trouble to take things for repair work as soon as out of guarantee cuz its simply less expensive to toss it in the garbage and purchase a brand-new one.

No surprise there’s constantly a billion utilized APCs readily available.

Also discuss a waste. I typically get 4-5 battery modifications prior to I change the UPS itself.

Do you not have anything else to do instead of argue with complete strangers on the web

Nope. That’s why I’m on the web arguing with complete strangers. If I had anything much better to do I ‘d most likely be doing it.

I reread it like 4 times and I’m still thinking that when your battery passes away in an otherwise totally practical UPS, you deliver the entire thing to APC rather of simply switching the dead battery for a fresh one.

My experience with APC has actually been to alter the batteries when it’s time.

You do that several times up until it’s time to change the entire system,

If you purchase straight from them whether it’s a battery replacement or a brand-new system, they supply a shipping label to send out the disposed of products to for recycling.

Came back from the reddit thread.

My very first 1500 PFCLCD was acquired in NCIX back in 2011.

Dead on 2019 after a routine power down and up.

Exact exact same glue area got burnt on my system.

Images of the charred location

Then in 2020 my 1000 PFCLCD likewise passed away the very same method. I need to immeidately disconnect the remainding 1350 PFC UPS. I think we will submit a grumble as this seems huge fire threat.
