Introducing HUGO-X1R - The only battery backup system designed especially for tankless water heaters.

Hugo is a compact unit that can mount right next to your existing tankless water heater and can be installed in minutes. Unlike other battery backup systems that offer only minutes of backup protection. Hugo can keep your system going for up to a week without power.

Packed with intelligent features that work seamlessly with gas-powered tankless water heaters, i.e. flow sensor, temperature sensor, pure sine wave, automatic switch over, etc.

Power rating of 350W/500VA is suitable for all gas-powered tankless water heaters and many other gas appliances.

HUGO, the complete maintenance free battery backup solution for all gas-powered tankless water heaters and appliances during power failures.

HUGO-X1R new feature (attention Rinnai users): 

  • HUGO-X1R has added a delay shut-off function.  With the flow sensor connected and activated, when user turns off faucet or shower head, HUGO will remain providing power to tankless water heater for an additional 5 minutes before shutting down.  This allows tankless to be in continuous cycle when user is turning on and off the water during showering or washing dishes.  This "delay" feature also solves the published technical issue with Rinnai users.  This "delay" feature will allow Rinnai's servo valve to perform properly during restart cycle and therefore eliminating the issue of no-flow as identified by some users.

    Well made. I haven’t had a blackout yet to see it’s performance. Fed x ground shipping took 10 days to receive, very poor.
    This unit was very easy to set up.

    Like the peace of mind this unit will provide for me as I don't have a whole house generator. Not sure if the chirping audio alert sound that is mentioned in the FAQ will be an annoyance or issue since it mentions it silences after 5 minutes. To me it should have been designed to only come on if the battery is getting too low to operate. Will see once I experience a loss of power & need hot water.
