Spring weather means thunderstorms and intermittent power outages in many parts of the United States.
What Is an Uninterruptible Power Supply? Now might be a good time to remind listeners about protecting sensitive electronics with surge protectors and Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS).
Where Do I Need UPS Units in My House? A UPS is important for tech that you're more likely to be using when an unexpected power loss occurs and that might need to be shut down gracefully, such as a computer.
How Big of a UPS Unit Do I Need? For the average desktop user, the CyberPower 650VA UPS is inexpensive protection for short blackouts that are more common this time of year. It'll generally be enough to power your desktop and monitor, or if you use a laptop, can often power your broadband modem and Wi-Fi route for extended connectivity during the power outage.For workstation users or those that may need to protect more power-hungry equipment, the CyberPower 1325VA UPS is an upgrade choice.UPS units can be used with your Home Theater and Gaming Systems as well, though options from the more simple A/V surge protector selection designed to protect HT equipment will also suffice.
