There was a guy outside under the parking deck selling APC Back-UPS 350 CS
UPS'es for $25 new in the box. Which set off the 'too good to be true'
detector a bit, but I decided to gamble 25 bucks.
When I got it home, it looked great. Everything in new condition, although
the test printout showed that it was from 2002. So the battery is a little
old, who cares for $25? And it worked fine.
But something kept nagging at me...wasn't there some sort of issue with APC
about two years ago? Some sort of recall?
This unit is a fire hazard. If you bought one, check it's serial number
info against the page above. If it matches, stop using it and remove the
Question with boldness even the existence of a god;
because if there be one he must approve of the
homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear.
