That's still not a UPS and can only be used during daylight hours and preferably when the sun is shining. It doesn't help during the dire hours of rain-, snow-, thunder- and other storms that cause the power to go out in the first place.

If he has enough batteries so things can run in the dark, it's a UPS. Daylight is just a charger.

You should rename yourself to "I know better than all of you even when all that leaves my keyboard is utter BS". Welcome back to my ignore list.

Much better to laugh & remember: No matter what you do or where you go in the world, you will always come across one.

A UPS is a system to power something at mains voltage when there is no incoming supply. So anything with a battery and an invertor that can run without input, and then recharge when that input reappears is as UPS.

They have even been mentioning it on BBC news here so I guess it must be a tad warmer and going on for longer than usual.

It is more than a tad, the normal daytime high in this corner of the universe at this time of year is in the low 70's.

Glory: my new phone came in. I'm upgrading from a Huawei P20 Lite to an Asus Zenfone 8 and already loving it. It's the same size as my old phone, but has a Snapdragon 888 SoC, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage. And a 3.5mm headphone jack. 😁
Stereo speakers, it's L O U D !!

Nag: for the past hour it's been telling me it's taking 36 minutes to copy all data. 😉

Glory: Facebook message yesterday from ranger at local nature reserve to tell me she had been emailed about a swarm of bees. A quick cycle ride over there and they are now collecting in a box I will use to carry them to their new home where possibly later this year but if not June next year I will start collecting rent.

Later that year I signed up for my free 'seniors' bus pass, expecting to use another of the same batch of photos from the machine. Went to the bus station just opposite the Post Office, filled out the form, showed them where I lived and when I was born. Photo? Just stand there, she said. Fiddled with the webcam perched on top of her computer monitor. and the job was done. No charge, it's definitely verified as the same person who provided the documents - and it's a much better photo!
Glory.
Post Office does that. Entered Post Office at 10:41, exited at 10:47 last Saturday.
Licence received today.

Grumbles x3
Better quality photo, but look like a zombie from Night of the Living Dead.
New categories on license?
Last licence renewal in July 2011.
January 2013 Groups changed to Categories.
Motorcycle group became separate categories.
Crafty buggers!
New license not for 10 years. :-(

Left wing is theft, forced charity. But we're not allowed to talk about politics in here. It's rule number 473B subsection 2A.

Oh, really???? I can do that.
It was what I thought to be a realistic comment on the liberal left politics going on in this country, and how the liberal left mods in the Seti forums are implicitly involved in it. Obviously, my comments were not well received by the liberals on the mod squad. Liberals just HATE to be called out in the open.

And I shall confess that once shots started being fired by the mods, I descended into some obscenity in response.

You were banned for using an obscenity to describe moderators, and even as a moderators I do not believe I have to put up with that.

This was after you had made several post discussing moderators and their decisions which you know is against the rules.

Thanks for underlining my point.
