PoC single solar panel system

(05-14-2019, 07:11 PM)OffGridInTheCity Wrote: The problem with APCs are 
- They must be plugged into 120v AC source to 'activate' the charge cycle so they will supply power when disconnected.  So you can't just use it in isolation to charge/discharge/charge/discharge. It just won't turn on after the discharge till you plug it in for a moment.

I've been able to turn mine on without being plugged into the AC. Maybe it depends on the model. I've had an APC300, 550, and SUA2000 SmartUPS. the 300 and 550 units are generic dumb models used for computers and other electronics that most standard people forget about until it beeps about a dead battery. With those, I had to turn the switch on, then hold the "test" button in for a couple seconds and it fired right up.
