An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) provides protection against blackouts and brownouts. In this age of tablets and laptops the modern office seldom comes equipped with a battery backup device. Most of us are lucky to get a power strip with a surge protector.
The need for a UPS still exists. Small power supplies to protect modems, routers, NAS devices and DVRs are now available. These devices have a low current draw so they don’t need those large bricks like a CPU require.
Here are some clever solutions from APC to protect your gadgets.
This versatile unit features a grab-n-go power pack. Designed to power wireless networks for up to 2 hours during storms and blackouts, the BGE50ML’s battery is also a mobile power pack which can be removed to charge tablets and smartphones on the go.
Small and simple. The BGE70 is a more conventional power supply, offering three outlets for TVs, DVDs, routers, etc. When power is interrupted or fluctuates outside safe levels, the BGE70 instantly provides clean battery power up to 3 hours to your sensitive electronics.
Need a bit more juice? The BGE90M UPS offers guaranteed backup battery power for your electronic devices. The compact and ultra-efficient design maximizes runtime for 4.5 hours. Both models feature wall-mount holes and use two-prong plugs.
