    Hi does anyone use UPS with their Projector in case of power loss and damage to the bulb? If so, is there a specific type I should be looking at or anything that will keep the PJ going for a while to cool down?

    All advice appreciated. :smashin:

    I use a UPS that cost £50 and is 1200Va, although I would have thought this is being a little overoptimistic on the manufacturers point of view. Nothing in particular to look for but dont get the cheapest one possible (<£30) or it may cause some unseen problems. It only needs to be able to run it for 5mins or so, therefore a 600Va of decent quality should be fine I would have thought....

    Where did you get a 1200vs UPS for £50?

    I'm looking for a UPS at the mo' and that would fit the bill nicely!

    Cheers,

    That does sound cheap!

    Had a look and found a Trust 800 VA for £40 with anti-surge, RFI screening, Power conditioning... Does this sound like a good option? :confused:

    I got it from www.ebuyer.com however I think they have sold out now. The trust one you mention seems like it would work fine in he circumstance.
