A 750W PSU should get around 10 minute runtime on a 1500va UPS. The following graphic is off of the APC website, directly, referencing the 1500va design.

Sorry, couldn't link it directly, I will load it in the next frame.

Sorry for the delay. Generally, most 1500va battery backups from REPUTABLE MANUFACTURERS (Cyber-power, Tripp-lite, and many others) WILL PERFORM IN MUCH THE SAME MANNER. APC is an expensive brand, and they charge you more for being the big guy. Look at reviews, and you can feel comfortable that good quality parts will give you essentially the same run time.

This following part is on my next server build list: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16842102048

Okay, the lack of sentences is likely confusing my understanding of your post. It's just difficult for me to see what you are saying. I recognize that English isn't your primary language and am not trying to be mean.

That said, if I am understanding right, go with a big name brand, not the cheap junk that is on the market. Better brands produce cleaner square-wave signals (and the best produce good sine-wave), while the cheaper versions can produce inconsistent voltages and noisy output that can shorten your PSU's lifespan and potentially destroy it during a power loss.

You can use a battery charger, a lead acid battery (car battery), and an inverter as a UPS; however, the quality of the battery charger and inverter comes into question. The charger must be of the "smart level output" type that drops to trickle charging when the battery is full, or you may cause crystalizing of the internal terminals and plates of the battery and ruin it. The inverter must also be capable of putting out clean power, to protect the PSU. A system like this will NOT be a "switch-to-battery" type arrangement, and will be running through the battery at all times, so it will consume more power than a UPS.

oh sorry bro english is our primary language but i cannot type on the keyboard because i lost my one and only middle finger on the right hand so it is a bit difficult to type sorry bro pls apologize me i will try to type correct next time ok as you said about the inverter i tried with my home one's but it didn't work becasue when the power is out it takes a 10 seconds time back it up itself so its no use and i can't get the lead acid batteries you told because its a crime to use that type of batteries in here so anyway thanks for your help i am buying the apc which is 1.5kv one's BR-1500-IN model even though one question i have seen your link which you posted in the last comment cyberpower gives more backup around 900 watts right but it isn't available in here so i am going with the apc itself thanks bro you helped me a lot

erie1274, what he's saying is while English is his primary language, he had trouble typing in his keyboard due to his middle finger broken in his right hand. He does have an inverter at home but it only lasts for 10 seconds when the power goes out. If I understand it correctly, it's a crime to use a lead acid-type battery in India. He is buying the APC which is 1.5kv BR-1500-IN model. One question is that CyberPower gives more backup time around 900 watts, am I correct? It isn't available in India so he is going with the APC. He thanked you and you helps him a lot.

ANURAG-G9XR, have you used a Dvorak-type keyboard before? This is great for either left or right-handed typing. Google is your friend.

I haven't seen any laws banning lead-acid batteries. That's what every car battery is.
