Jim: since cyberpower seems to operate in their own local vacuum and the
-torr rating varies with every different model, I'd say that using your
bully pulpit as the defacto standard to encourage a more co-operative
attitude might be productive. But it won't happen overnight. They've got
more lawyers than techs.
I'll use the $39.90 at Tiger Direct, CP-650 I hve running a pi as an
example, load registers as 8% (when it even deigns to show it) but the
shutdown time is fixed at 2 minutes but the battery at 2 minutes is still
99.9% charged. With that reprogrammed, it could probaly run that pi for a
couple hours. Fortunately for the pi, my standby is making usable power 5
seconds after the lights go out. Uptimes depend on me, not the power
