> I have two (2) Belkin F6C1500-TW-RK units that I just removed from service in my recording studio.  These are heavy (24 pounds each!) and large units with 10 battery-backed outlets.  They are 1500VA/830W units and most likely need the batteries replaced (two each.)  They have also developed a hum.  Definitely out of warranty.

> Before I send these to an electronics recycler, I thought I’d check here to see if someone might want these to restore/refurbish or otherwise use the parts.  These were darned expensive - it’d be a shame to toss them if someone could breathe life back into them.
> Local pickup only (obviously) - I’m just northeast of Philadelphia - convenient to the PA Turnpike at Fort Washington.  Email if interested!

One taken, one still available.  A little more info: The unit is 15” x 13” x 3.5”.  I cannot bring it to InfoAge, sorry.  The remaining one doesn’t turn on, but there was no smoke or smell.  When I spoke to a Belkin rep, she thought replacing the batteries would fix it, but I am not confident that that is correct.  I think it may need a few caps replaced.  I’m sure someone on this list has the skills for this, just not worth my time!  This was $250 new btw, with a little TLC I imagine it could give many more years of service.  Again, please respond off-list if you’re interested.    - Bob Shuster
