Frequently Asked Questions

Which devices needs to be powered to maintain internet connectivity?

If you have a fibre connection at home, you will need backup power on both your CPE/ONT (The device where your fibre terminates to) and your internet router (device connected to your CPE/ONT by a network cable). For LTE routers, only the LTE router itself needs power.

Is the Nerdpower compatible with all routers and CPE /ONT’s?

The Nerdpower device is compatible with most routers and CPE/ONT’s. The only limitation is your device’s operating voltage and power connector. Nerdpower can supply power to all 12V, 9V and 5V routers and CPE. The device is not compatible with USB-C power connectors but has 2 x DC connectors in varying sizes.

How do I check the voltage of my devices?

Your device’s voltage requirements will be displayed at the back of or under your device, or alternatively on the power supply.

What do I do with the power supplies of my devices once disconnected?

The original power supplies are replaced by the Nerdpower devices and are not needed. You can store them for future use.

Do I need a Nerdpower device for each my router and CPE?

If your Router and CPE are situated within 1 meter of each other, one Nerdpower device will be able to supply power to both your Router and CPE/ONT. If they are not positioned close to each other, you will need a Nerdpower unit for each device.

Do I need to leave the unit connected my router and CPE /ONT permanently?

The unit needs to be plug into the power, switched on and connected to your router and CPE/ONT permanently. The device will switch over to backup power when needed without interrupting your internet connection. The device needs to be plugged into a power source permanently to allow for recharging.

Does this unit work with Microwave/ Wireless Dish internet connections?

Most Microwave / Wireless Dish internet connections require a higher voltage power supply to keep the dish operational. For this reason, most Microwave / Wireless Dish internet solutions will not be compatible with the Nerdpower device.

Does this unit work with LTE Routers?

The NerdPower device is compatible with most LTE routers subject to the above mention voltage and connector requirements. It is important to note that in some cases during load shedding the cellphone towers might lose power, and although your device is powered up by the Nerdpower unit, there will not be signal to your router.

Does the device keep my wifi up?

Nerdpower will keep the built-in wifi of your router operational, but if you have various wireless access points distributed around your property, the extended wireless devices will not be operational. In these cases, wifi coverage will be limited to the area within the main routers wifi coverage.

How long will the NerdPower keep my internet up for?

In ideal situations, the Nerdpower unit will keep your router and CPE/ONT operational for up to 5 hours, but this is dependant on the frequency and duration of the power outages. The device needs sufficient time to recharge after an extended power outage.

Can I connect any other devices like cellphone chargers into the Nerdpower for backup power?

The device is designed to keep routers and CPE/ONT operational, and it is strongly recommended that no other devices are connected to the unit, as this will impact the “Up Time” of the unit. The more devices are connected, the quicker the battery will deplete.
