I just bought a APC Back-UPS yesterday and I need some help with something in the instruction manual. In Step 8, it says to "switch on the back-ups" yet it also says "Note: Allow the Back-UPS to charge for a full 18 hours prior to use." I'm confused as to whether it means to charge for 18 hours prior to plugging the PC into it or if it means to charge for 18 hours before doing Step 8 altogether. More specifically, do I have to plug it into the PC for the 18 hours and not use my PC or can I charge it all by myself and then hook it up to the PC after the 18 hours has expired.

I hope that wasn't too confusing.

let it charge before using it for backup protection. it will stilll act as a power strip/surge protector untill then.. if you want to use it as such.
