Background on UPS (Battery Backup)
A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) unit is a great way to protect your PC. A UPS has surge protection functionality along with a battery backup. A UPS allows your computer to operate normally through brownouts and for at least a few minutes (generally 5-15 minutes) if an actual power outage occurs. This gives you time to save any files you were working on and shut down normally, avoiding the potential data loss or corruption that could normally result from a power outage.
This specific power backup unit is ideal for mid-range computers that don't draw too high an amount of current. If you are unsure of how large a battery backup your new computer may need, please contact our sales consultants!
Not only are battery backups important for saving your work from a sudden power outage, but they protect your system from damage as well. Brownouts and power spikes from your power line can cause stress to the power supply in your system. Battery backups compensate for these fluctuations and can help to give your system a longer life span.
It's also important to keep in mind that you will want a power backup that can handle your monitor as well as your system. If the power does go out, you will need to see your monitor in order to save your documents and properly shut down your system.
