    Anyway, this is just another addition to my ignore list, I have better things to do than explain to some half-brains they will not make Smart-UPS XL from a cheap crap by "tuning pots", same way they won't tune Tata into a Porsche etc.

    So go ahead! Start turning pots! Kill yourself and everybody around! You won't be the first and definitelly not the last one, but hey, you'll at least get Darwin's prize, I'll nominate you myself.

    No. YO is not putting anything.

    He probably meant "you", why are you so serious?

    What do you want to do by "hacking" it? Make it charge faster? How frequently do you have power outages to warrant a fast charging time?


    Assuming you want a faster charging time, why not rig up a car battery charger to it? But if ups is under load, I feel you can overheat or burn out the transformer by running it for extended periods of time -aka more than the original design was supposed to last. This is what I think behemot means when he says "fire hazard".

    If you're trying to get the internal charger to magically feed more current to the charger without burning out by adjusting the trim pots, I don't think that's gonna happen.

    Note, I'm not held responsible if your "hack" goes wrong.

    At this moment, I know about this topic more than any of you here (which makes sense considering I have the "thing" ).

    I thought of resurrecting it and putting it into use. I bought it like 7-10 years ago and hardly used it. Absolutely dont remember why.

    I'll discuss, If I need to, on UPS'ish related boards and not here because clearly this is not the place. It seems like I am discussing about "how to obtain pirated content" on some anti-piracy forum.

    Next time, I will try to stick to PSU related discussions only.

    Thanks.
