Can you power on 2000W kettle on UPS 850VA?

Even if you could, I wouldn't recommend it. Your UPS will probably cry as soon as you start heating it up
Kettles tend to heat up by shorting the circuit to a point. Your UPS will cry, or trip up, as soon as the max is reached

have you ever tried boiling a kettle on the US power grid?
It takes FOREVER
 
I usually boil my kettle over my graphics card.

As a leftie I really like this one ...

@Burgi In BC, where we supply a majority of Califonia's power, yea... I don't fill the kettle all the way though, only as much as I need
 
are you on 110v in canada?
 
we took a small travel kettle to NYC so we could get british tea
its only about half a litre but it still took about 15 mins to boil
 
Was it a 110V kettle?
 
no
you know what, i don't think i checked
 
5:42 PM
If it's expecting 220v, and only gets 110v, it would take at least twice as long
 
i guess it was designned for european travelling

@Burgi that one does say 120-240V
though they may just be saying it won't die
 
it did work, it just took ages
