All it takes is an electrical storm or power surge to fry a computer. Sure, we all know that “an ounce of prevention is better than a cure” trope, but in this case, an ounce of prevention is worth thousands of dollars in electronics. If you’ve experienced electrical storms, you know what we’re talking about, and Amazon has an ounce of prevention deal for you: the APC UPS Battery Backup Surge Protector is on sale for $60, down from $76 – that’s over 20% off!
While the surge protection feature of this gadget protects your electronics from destruction, it goes even further to give you peace of mind during power outages. If you live in an area with a lot of thunderstorms, you know how annoying it is when the power goes out. Well, this surge protector makes that much less of a hassle as it doubles as an uninterrupted power supply (UPS) – that means your devices will keep running while the power goes out. It has made life much easier for over 6,000 five-star fans.
“I have three…great for keeping WiFi on, even during power outages,” said one critical acclaim. “I use them to protect our work and our computers so that I can gracefully back up and shut down our computers. And I use them to power our security systems and maintain our internet. For example, once while I was working from home, I lost power for six hours and was still able to work on my laptop and have internet AND keep our properties on a live security system.”
“I bought this item to complete my generator,” shared a satisfied customer. “When I lose power, which happens too often, the connection to my generator is almost immediate but there is enough time for my computer to crash and have to be restarted. Any work I have done that does not ‘s not saved is lost. Since I work from home which can be almost disastrous. I bought this in hopes that when the power goes out the backup battery will keep my computer powered. This seems great on paper, but my power hasn’t shut off since my purchase, so stay tuned.”
But customers don’t like it just for computers.
“I bought this for an unusual need,” shared a five star fan. “My 78 year old mum has a power recliner, and I didn’t want to have to worry about her getting stuck in the chair if the power went out and hurting herself trying to get out. Works great for this. I’ve put the chair up and down 10 times on battery and still had power left for more I also have a 5w LED lamp and its phone charger plugged into it so it has light and a medium to charge her phone in the event of a power outage No idea how long it will run for, but works great so far for the short outages she’s had (not common here, but quite often to need it).”
