A power outage that prevents you from doing some critical work on your computer and lighting system. APC’s Back-UPS provides a variety of safe alternatives for emergency battery-fueled electricity. “UPS” stands for “uninterruptible power supply.” Spare batteries can be hot-swapped in without interrupting power, too.
When it’s not using its integrated battery, Back-UPS Pro functions as a surge protector, with six to ten rear ports that are divided into battery-backed and non-battery-backed to save unnecessary energy drain. Each unit is designed for maximum energy efficiency, as well, including features that optionally cut power to idle devices so that you’re not wasting electricity.
