Simple Circuit Diagram when the Mains Power is ON

During normal power supply and the Mains Power is ON, the Wall Plug supplies power to the Backup Mate.
The Backup Mate charges the Backup Battery and supplies power to the PC and Light which are plugged into the Extension Lead and Adapter

Simple Circuit Diagram when the Mains Power is OFF

During a power failure and the Mains Power turns OFF and the Wall Plug supplies NO power to the Backup Mate. The Backup Mate automatically switches to receive power from the Backup Battery. The Backup Mate continues to supply uninterrupted power to the PC and Light which are plugged into the Extension Lead and Adapter

The Battery

We only supply superior quality Deep-Cycle Batteries with our Backup Mate Backup Kits. A deep-cycle lead-acid
battery is designed to deliver a consistent voltage as the battery discharges. In contrast, starter batteries
(e.g. most automotive batteries) are designed to deliver sporadic voltage spikes. A deep-cycle battery can
be discharged and recharged more frequently than an automatice battery. Most deep cycle batteries can be
discharged up to 80% of their total charge without being damaged, while automotive batteries will rarely rcover
if discharged beyond 50% of their total charge.

The Battery Box

The battry box is exactly what it says it is. With the standard Backup Mate Kit you will be supplied with a durable, plastic utility box in which to house your backup battery. We do have an option of a "special" integrated Backup Mate with Metal Battery Box (as depicted above). This is a limited stock item and only on special request. While offering a very durable and neat solution there are additional costs invovled in the manufacture of the units.
