Sorry if this is being posted in the wrong forum. Does anyone know what the power consumption of the internal battery backup box is? This is where I am coming from. I previously had xxx cable (internet, phone, & tv). When I had a power outage I did not lose anything as I have a ups on my lcd tv/cable box, and a ups on my computer/modem. Most of my power outages last from a few seconds to a couple of minutes. I was able to watch tv or use the computer until the ups gave out. Now with FIOS, if the power goes out, I will only have telephone service, I assume that the modem and tv will go blank instantly even though they are still powered. So, I was thinking of putting a small ups on the battery backup box to keep everything going. Thoughts anyone?
