  • That's why you RTFM. If it's listed in the installers instructions & wasn't followed then it's on you if it's not then it's on them. Seriously tho how can you buy kit this professional & not read the manual? I assume it comes with one I'd be amazed if not.

  • Where is the video of the fun stuff? I was expecting a huge UPS with lots of Li-Ion batteries doing their 4th of July bit. Also, and this is not a joking matter; Using a certified electrician to fix your computers sets a horrible example. If everyone just called a professional instead of trying to fix the problem them selves, natural selection goes out the window. No more evolution. Electrons acting upon each other is natures way of kil.. erm.. preventing that certain genes reach the biological state where bad eye sight or too much alcohol results in fusion. The kind of fusion that starts with haploid cells and through mitosis ends up creating more "problems" rather than fixing them. We have enough "Im cold, we need global warming" , "If the earth wasnt flat, I would know it" ... If we keep undermining the natural selection, its likely that human extinction is a result of a new world war. One thats about wether or not WWE is real, lizards are ruling the earth or maybe it´ll be the metric system united vs. "an unnamed unit of measure that may or may not be related to the source of foot sweat" As a practical joke, it was epic, but its getting old. It not fun anymore. Stop feeding the trolls is about more than the food and does not mean actual trolls. Unlike lizard overlords who wants to date Iva...erm their offspring, trolls does not exist. But I digress .. when are you showing us how everyone can fix a PSU? Or maybe how to get free energy from the bird resting ropes hanging from the wood poles in the street.

  • 4:59 - "All the electrician has to do is enter the cable and tie it in. Anything else is generally pre-done." - *NO! No, no, no, no, no, no NO!* Wrong. Error. Stupid! This isn't consumer equipment. The rules are very different. Seriously. This is the kind of bullshit thinking that got you into this situation in the first place. Read the installation manual for this unit. There are pages and pages and pages of details in there that your sleepwalker electrician just completely ignored. Eaton is 100% correct - this is user error.

    • To be fair, the use case for a UPS is for short power outages (of a few minutes) to give you time to cleanly shut down your servers. If you need to keep running during an outage, you need a proper generator instead.

  • Urgh I remember my supplier messed up my UPS order. I wanted 1 unit for 6 batteries...nope, they sent 4 units for 6 batteries each. Each battery weighed about 18KG and to top it off, the delivery driver was like "I'm not moving it in to your building because the elevator won't handle it all, you need to move it yourself" so it was left on a sidewalk in a major city and my team had to manually take it all apart and drag it in off the pallets (driver had a pallet truck to make it easy for him, what an asshole). Thankfully we got the order sorted and didn't get charged for their screw up.
