    Hello,

    Anyone using one of those APC uninterrupted power supplies ?

    Apparently their Power-Chute software is non-existent for the Mac, or what is available is very poor.

    But i read somewhere, I think, that there is something "built in" to the Mac
    that is more or less equivalent.

    Anyone know anything about it ?
    Or any suggestions on how to monitor the health of the APC battery, etc. ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Yes, using APC UPS (BE750G) old but works fine on iMac. No APC Software required. Just make sure the RJ45 cord is connected to APC and USB-A connected to USB port on iMac. Also using newer APC UPS BN650M1-CA for Smart TV, Router

    States it right on the APC front display.

    I am using one as well. You can adjust the APC settings under System Preferences - Energy Saver.
