I got mine yesterday. Fully charged but came with batteries unhooked in the front (as it's supposed to!). Plugged it in, fan sped up, got everything plugged into it (two headless PCs, a PoE switch and a Raspberry Pi totaling ~197w of consistent load), cut the power and it said 35 minutes of runtime. I couldn't be happier.
Interesting but the seller should update the listing, since item description/condition is crucial for possible disputesFYI, just got two and got this response from my Best Offer ($95 counter):
"I am now installing Brand new batteries in the last 50 units I have for sale and it will be worth it to pay more for these."
I don't have much to add, unfortunately. Are these really Eaton 5SC? Well, they look, function and smell like Eaton 5SC and they also recognized by windows as Eaton 5SC. So far everyone who ordered got their units and they are fully functional.Has anyone else made a recent offer on one of these? The listing still states that they come with existing batteries and nothing about new ones. I'm fine with original batteries if I can get 2 of them close to OPs offer price. As previously stated, I may be willing to go higher for new batteries, but the seller would need to revise listing as such.
Any experiences anyone would like to share? It looks like this (assuming it is indeed an Eaton rebrand) is fully supported by NUT (Network UPS Tools), so it should be simple to integrate with my existing proxmox nodes for graceful shutdown. I'd love to hear success stories.
Latest version actually looks to be 01.06.0005?Received mine today.
Thought at first it wasn't working. Found that the battery connector under the front panel was disconnected.
Now it's charging. Fan would be too noisy for my taste for it to be in the same room with me.

Product Information Pages
Mine came with the latest firmware that HP seems to offer: V 01.02.0003
Connected it to a Windows VM and the USB connection was named 'MGE UPS Eaton 5SC'
Edit to add:
Charged it fully overnight. Battery meter in HPE Power Protector steady at 97%, wouldn't go higher.
Power consumption when fully charged and idle: ~21W
Connected a resistive load of ~560W and got ~10min of runtime out of it.
Spec shows ~13min
HPE Single Phase Tower Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS)
Good enough for me.
