Not really sort of. I am aware Sonic doesn't sell their items but in their article (the one i lined to), they link to Amazon and various UPS units. Not the one they sell you at install time but others.

Well, sort of. Sonic doesn't sell the ONT UPS to customers any more (as mentioned earlier in this thread), and the PS18L appears to have been discontinued. There are some PS18Ls available used on eBay but they are expensive and I chose to go with a newer UPS.

Right, and any of us can find and buy a standard UPS. But the discussion here was more about recommendations for specific UPSes that might work better for the ONT then a general UPS -- there might be specific needs like weather resistance, small footprint, DC power (instead of AC), which is why several of us have shared the specific model that we have found.

We're just trying to help one another here.

Stephan - What did you end up using?
I found this TalentCell Mini UPS Uninterrupted Power Supply 27000mAh 98Wh Lithium ion Backup Battery with DC 12V/9V/5V Output on Amazon:

and am wondering if this straight DC to DC unit might work better than a standard AC UPS.

Having just recently experienced a power outage, I purchased this one (arrives next week). Measured all my network equipment, usage no higher than 25 watts, should last me a few hours.

I ended up getting one of these. It does DC to DC power, which should make the UPS more efficient than a standard AC UPS, and avoids a wall-wart in the setup. It's $40 from Amazon. 8800mAH
