Just hoping someone can help me out with what amperage the 12v apex classic brain power supply is supposed to be. It seems the internal battery on my unit died (after only a little over a year which is out of warranty :mad:) So I was planning on just getting a small UPS to run only the apex so I dont have issues with the clock resetting every power outage and turning my lights on in the middle of the night. Plus I think getting a UPS will be cheaper than having to send my apex back to neptune for them to replace the battery for a hundred bucks or so plus shipping.

I'm currently troubleshooting the issue with neptune, but im almost certain its the internal battery which is only replaceable by them.... so the UPS seems to be the cheaper route, plus ill be able to do more with it.

Do you have an Apex Energy Bar? I power my Apex classic base unit using the power from the Energy Bar, while one of my Energy Bar is plugged into a UPS. I'm not even using the 12v port.

I ended up getting a power supply. I didnt want to have the entire eb8 on the UPS because I want the UPS to last longer.
