Time. Is. Money.

When it comes protecting your critical infrastructure and systems, you want the longest backup time available.

With Lithium-Ion UPS Systems from N1C, that’s exactly what you get.

Nobody beats our runtimes in a single 2U Rack/Tower mount, single-phase UPS. Nobody.

And when you factor in our costs vs. our competition, it’s clear: You get more value per UPS runtime minute over anyone else.

Don’t believe us?

Toggle the boxes below to see how N1C Lithium-Ion UPS estimated runtimes compare to the competition, and see how much less you’ll pay per backup minute with N1C. In virtually all cases, N1C has superior battery run times and a lower overall cost. *And we didn’t even figure in the battery replacement and maintenance costs that you’ll have if you choose another brand’s UPS.

Estimated Runtimes

**NOTE** – The CyberPower and APC models compared here are “Line Interactive” UPS systems, which only protect against 5 of the 9 power problems. Thus, they aren’t up to the same power protection quality of the L2200G, which is online double conversion and protects against all 9 power problems. The line interactive comparisons were made as CyberPower and APC do not make an online double conversion UPS with 208-240V input power. No Vertiv-brand models were compared as Vertive does not have a 208-240V, 2.2kVA UPS.

Cost Comparison

**NOTE** – As stated above, the CyberPower and APC models compared here are “Line Interactive” UPS systems. Typically, line interactive UPS systems from any manufacturer are much lower cost than online double conversion systems as they don’t protect against all 9 power problems. Despite this, the cost-per-minute of runtime is higher on those models than what’s offered by the L2200G.

Runtime Estimates

Below are the estimated runtimes of the N1C L2000 vs. comparable 2kVA (TrippLite) and 2.2kVA (CyberPower, APC & Eaton) Online Double Conversion UPS systems from competitors.

**Note** – For this comparison, only TrippLite had a 2kVA UPS with 208-240V input. We compared our 2kVA L2000G to 2.2kVA units from CyberPower, APC and Eaton. Also, CyberPower and APC only had Line Interactive (vs. Online Double Conversion) UPS systems in this power input range. Line Interactive UPS systems only protect against 5 of the 9 power problems. Thus, they aren’t up to the same power protection quality of the L2o00G, which is online double conversion and protects against all 9 power problems. The line interactive comparisons were made as CyberPower and APC do not make an online double conversion UPS with 208-240V input power. No Vertiv-brand models were compared as Vertive does not have a 208-240V, 2kVA UPS.

Cost Comparison

**NOTE** – As stated above, the CyberPower and APC models compared here are “Line Interactive” UPS systems. Typically, line interactive UPS systems from any manufacturer are much lower cost than online double conversion systems as they don’t protect against all 9 power problems. Despite this, the cost-per-minute of runtime is often higher on those models than what’s offered by the L2000G.

Battery runtime estimates are approximate and may vary with equipment, configuration, battery age, temperature, etc. Actual runtime may vary from +/- 15% around these estimated values.

Competitors’ runtimes are taken from runtime tables and charts listed on competitors’ websites for the product model number listed. When exact wattage comparisons were not available, estimates were used.

Competitors’ costs are taken from competitors’ websites or CDW.com for the product model number listed. The cost of a competitor’s SNMP Network Card (cost varies by model listed) and a standard $40 rack-rail kit were added to the competitor’s UPS product price to make them have comparable features to what comes standard with N1C Lithium-Ion UPS Systems. Competitors’ costs do not include any extended warranties offered by the competitor, nor do they include costs of VRLA battery replacements and maintenance, which we expect to be incurred by the customer between 3-5 years after the original purchase date. Had we added in those costs, the competitor’s price per minute of runtime would increase according to the cost of the replacement batteries and maintenance. N1C Lithium-Ion UPS Systems have a maintenance-free battery with a 15-year life expectancy and an included 10-year replacement warranty on both the UPS battery and electronics.
