Seems smart to add power line protection/ back-up power supply for Telo.


Did a search for 'UPS' on this forum and found nothing, maybe not enough letters.



What are some units folks are using and liking? What is Ooma tech support suggesting?

Is my warranty effected?

I am partial to the APC Smart-UPS models since they put out sine wave power when running on battery.
They aren't inexpensive.

I've got my Telo, Router and modem all connected through an APC power supply. According to the utility software that comes with it, I'm good for over 2 hours (at least on standby) in case of an outage. Besides that I bought a Square Trade 3-year warranty for the Telo for about $35 if I remember correctly.

Are most of you using a back-up power supply and/or a surge protector with your Ooma?

I use surge protection and cell phone backup.

When searching the Ooma forum, use two or more words like, UPS power.

Which surge protector(s) do you like? Which models or what specs should I consider?

I read some folks have had problems using them at all and suggested you are better off with none.

Thanks again!

A surge suppressor of some type is almost a must with Ooma devices, especially in areas where there are lightening storms and power surges.

I use the Belkin surge suppressors as shown at: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss? ... &x=17&y=16

Having some wind storm going through western washington. Some folks are without power; we still have ours but I hear the UPS kick in out like crazy although power kept on all this time. I am thinking if my Ooma wasn't plugged into the UPS, that can't be too good for the life of the device.
