Scrounging a UPS

HaulWhile digging for junk to include in the uCHobby TGIMBOEJ shipments I did some quick scrounging. I tend to keep old UPS when they fail, not to replace the batteries but to scrounge out the power transistors. Sometimes you can make use of the old battery as well.

The picture here shows what I ended up with. Not a lot of stuff in this UPS. There are several T0-5 transistors and heat sinks to remove. I plan to drop this board as is into the TGIMBOEJ so that someone else can have the fun of scourging these transistors.
