    I am hoping someone has already done this and can help guide me towards a solution.


    I was told by an individual at the UPS store where I returned my All-in-one home internet service router, that I could buy an adapter online to use this device as a mini UPS for my devices at home. The unit has a 5.5mm (male connector) plug that used to connect to the router.



    I need to get a female connector that will allow me to hook up a surge protector to the unit.



    Here is the link for the product: http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Batter...d=1358545362&sr=1-2&keywords=BU3DC000+adapter


    Any support is appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

    To use it for a computer or any other type of device, it would need to have AC outlet. That unit appears to be a UPS/AC converter for the hardware that was attached to it.

    That unit supplies 12V. I do not understand what you are going to do with 12V other than run maybe a router or other device. It is NOT going to run your computer. A decent ups is going to run you approx $75~100 or so.
