Users Claim Two CyberPower UPSes Pose Fire Hazard

According to user feedback on Reddit (opens in new tab), CyberPower’s CP1500PFCLCD and CP1350PFCLCD uninterruptible power supplies (UPSes) can potentially cause a fire hazard. Unverified analysis seems to point the finger at a specific adhesive that may eventually become conductive, can short out some components, and could cause a fire.

The current concern about CyberPower’s units first appeared in January on the Canadian RedFlagDeals (opens in new tab) forum. The thread starter cited a YouTube video (opens in new tab) from a year ago where computer engineer Mark Furneaux discovered that at least the first and second revisions of the CP1500PFCLCD and CP1350PFCLCD used the everyday yellow glue. The adhesive, which can come in other colors, is common among electronics as manufacturers typically employ it in their products to glue bulky components down to the PCB to prevent their movement.
