So what plugs into what?? The conditioner into the UPS or vice versa?




I would think that they would plug into the wall separately, really. That way, you can put the amps onto the conditioner and not deal with the not really a sine wave issue, and plug the HTPC, etc into the UPS.

That's correct, Ken. The UPS acts as a surge protector so it provides protection as well as battery backup. I contacted Belkin and they advised against plugging one unit into the other.

I have only the equipment I feel needs battery backup for proper shutdown plugged into the UPS. The power center has a few features the UPS doesn't (for example, switched and delayed outlets), so I find them both useful.

OK. That makes sense. I believe I’m going to order one too. With our power outages around here, it can’t hurt. I’ll plug the satellite receiver and the projector into the UPS and everything else into the conditioner.

Figures. Ain't it always the case with the best prices?

That's often why they're the best prices...
