APC External Battery Pack BR24BPG (for UPS Model BR1500G) Unboxing and Review

APC External Battery Pack BR24BPG Review The APC BR24BPG battery pack extended the runtime of my computer, cable modem, router, etc. from 60 minutes to 265 minutes. It’s totally worth the cost. The BR1500 model of the APC battery backup units is the best. BX and BM don’t have the extender. They’re good but they don’t accept the extension pack like the BR1500G does. Get the BR unit from APC directly. The replacement batteries aren’t too expensive for what they give you, too. This video also shows you how to open the BR24BPG case so you can replace its batteries.
