When I woke up this morning, I saw that a “UPS” was on sale today. Perhaps because I am not very smart, I thought that meant the United Parcel Service was going bankrupt. I was wrong. A “UPS” is an “Uninterruptible Power Supply,” apparently. What does that mean? Put it this way: “When the power goes out, an APC Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) provides guaranteed power for computers, hard-drives and other electronics, including your wireless router so you can maintain a network connection when you need it most!”
Over 5,000 people have reviewed this so far, with the vast majority giving it 5 out of 5 stars. That means this is a good product. It also means thousands of people, at minimum, knew what a UPS was before today.
It’s not wrong to consider this a giant surge protector though. Like a surge protector, it consists of nine outlets; it just so happens that six of them work even when the power is out. Furthermore, it contains two USB charging ports that also work during power outages. I like this thing.
