Has anyone used a UPS for a garage door opener? I was thinking of one due to losing power a few times and not being able to get in. just need to open to get into the garage when power is out - nothing fancy.

That is an interesting idea, but I don't think batteries like temperature extremes. I wonder if the battery would die fast in the cold winter.

If the ups cant supply enough current to your garage opener it won't work at all. You can get garage openers with backup batteries

Edit: my Chamberlain has a battery backup. Lasts about 20 openings. But that's on a full charge on a fresh battery they last about as long as batteries in any other ups, meaning the battery needs replacement every so often.

This is good for small electronics, not beefy garage door openers moving big doors with a ton of wattage.

If you need more juice this is available for $60 from Costco.com (850VA / 460W).

This wouldn't work for a garage door considering you would use it much later after the power goes out. Garage doors are high wattage when activated. They are ~1/2hp+ after all

Amazon reviews say 1/8th don't work on receipt. I know I have received them with expired batteries. Is B&H good for returns like that?

A garage door opener needs about 1500 watts of surge power just to get the motor started.

Thanks for the feedback guys - repped & decided not to buy. Was really hoping this would be a good idea, as it would also serve function to power my wyze cam in the scuttle space looking out during an outage.

This is a very low capacity UPS mostly just good for dealing with momentary loss of power without causing computers to reboot. The max pumping time you'd get out of this is on the order of 5 minutes which wouldn't help too much. There are some beefier battery backup solutions out there but they're gonna cost you at least $200 to get started. I'm looking into building my own backup solution using deep cycle batteries and a decent power inverter/charger to keep my gas furnace operable during a loss of power and there are some guides out there if you wanted a starting point.

Yes. but beware, without valid reason return will not be accepted at there shipping cost. You cannot say you don't like it and send back.
