Re: UPS unit for iMac i9 2020

I bought an APC-Smart-UPS 1500 circa 2006, about the same time I purchased my first Intel MacPro. All things considered, it's met my expectations. The rather large lead-acid battery has been replaced at least twice, likely three times.

I was disappointed that APC halted support of MacOS. The unit came with an application that initiated an automated system shutdown, via USB connection. I wasn't long after, and an OS upgrade, when the software became obsolete and version upgrades were no longer available. I've always had ample time to invoke a manual shutdown in the event of a power failure.

One word of warning, and I wasn't aware of this, I understand it's generally recommended against using this (and comparably sized UPS systems) as a power source for laser printers.
