Why do I need a personal Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)?
With all the bad weather we have had in the area - and it doesn't look like it will lighten up soon - consider the benefits of having a UPS:
Imagine you are working on an important job for your company's most profitable client. Or perhaps you are in college and working on a final term paper. Maybe it is a massive spreadsheet or a multiple page document that you have spent hours working on. Suddenly the power at your office or home goes out! All your hard work has been lost. If only your computer was connected to a UPS, your data may have been saved.What is a UPS?
In computer terminology, UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply. An Uninterruptible Power Supply is an electrical device, typically with internal batteries, that store power to supply energy to connected devices if normal power is interrupted.
In the event of a power failure, the UPS will instantaneously switch over to its batteries to continue to provide power to connected devices for a period of time to allow the user to save data, shut down properly, or turn on a backup power source such as a generator. The period of time that a UPS will provide power to connected devices ultimately depends on the capacity of its batteries and the load that is connected to it. Why do I need one?
So why do you need a UPS? Consider it like an insurance policy. People and property have insurance in case something bad or unexpected happens. Most people do not want to get sick, involved in a car accident or worse but in the event that something like this happens insurance policies make us whole again.
Having a UPS is like an insurance policy for your electronics. Power outages are random, brown-outs happen unexpectedly, so why would you not want to protect your PC, server, or even just your big screen TV in your living room at home! It's better to be safe than to be sorry.
