    Dont sit a couple of UPS's side by side. This is a Powerware 5110 (or was). it was sitting next to another two of the same unit.

    they literally melted/fused together. exposing the transformer inside the unit.

    danger!

    Jeepers - those things give off some heat eh?

    looks like it could have been nast'ier' if you hadn't found it when you did though.
