    Urgh I remember my supplier messed up my UPS order. I wanted 1 unit for 6 batteries...nope, they sent 4 units for 6 batteries each. Each battery weighed about 18KG and to top it off, the delivery driver was like "I'm not moving it in to your building because the elevator won't handle it all, you need to move it yourself" so it was left on a sidewalk in a major city and my team had to manually take it all apart and drag it in off the pallets (driver had a pallet truck to make it easy for him, what an asshole).
    Thankfully we got the order sorted and didn't get charged for their screw up.

    I'm thinking the air in the UPS closet needs to be exchanged also. Wonder what the Eaton tech had to say about the installation?
    I would also bet that somewhere in the installation instruction there is a note about tightening down those nuts with maybe even a torque spec.

    This Eaton company sounds like real douchebags to me. Their product caught on fire because their stupid design and they whine about the electrician? It's like Ford put on the manual "remember to remove the dynamite from under the hood before starting the engine." Why you put that there in the first place? And sounds like it wasn't cheap either so there is no excuse. We'll thats one company that i will never advice anyone to use.

    @9:28 See? It's not only me, is not: you're trolling Linus 'cuz u jelly. Hey Linus, Pro Tip: don't yank the cables, they have a header where you unplug from, it's called not wearing and tearing, it's about caring for the stuff so the stuff can take care of you.
    The questions:
    1) How many times an UPS, specially big ones, have save you work/time? Not really, if ever.
    2) How much $/day that insurance worth? a lot, for their little usefulness.
    3) Was the UPS worth it? No.
    4) You feel it's a rip off? Absolutely.
    How about you?
