    I had two of these UPS's because I need at least ten 3 prong NEMA 5-15R or NEMA 5-20R plugs for a variety of configurations for Cisco mainly consisting of Inter-vlan, ether-channel or port channel, and especially for Load-balancing, so I bought two of these and attempted to use them together to power my supermicro SUPERMICRO CSE-825TQ-R700LPB with redundant 700 watt Power Supplies. However, my server started experiencing some issues shortly after and started electrically shorting itself completely on instead of just powering on in standby. Therefore, I returned the UPS's and made a claim by phone with the insurance company I have renters insurance with and they sent out a technician to inspect the UPS and Server, which I gave him invoices for all the hardware used to make the server and for the UPS for the Insurance Company to later get back to me.

    I needed to ask if this was possible before I did it, but didn't and now found out that it either probably wasn't or definitely wasn't. Please don't ridicule because I did asked around before I did it and nobody could answer my question and I called to ask Cyberpower personally before I bought these and they didn't seem to have an answer to this problem too.
