Why Purchase A UPS?
- 8 AC Outlets

- 830W Total Input Power Acceptance
- AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation)
- USB Connection
- ASW (Automatic Shutdown Software)
Some questions are inevitably going to be asked: Why use a UPS? Are they necessary? The answer is a big YES. The Uninterruptable Power Supply has increasingly become a permanent component in not only commercial, business, and industrial settings, but home and the small business setting as well. Homeowners are finding out the power supply coming into their home, is not as constant and free from power issues as might be assume. With today's more power current sensitive computer equipment and home electronics, your AC outlet is no match for regulating the severe ups and downs of voltage and power current.
The UPS: Becoming Less Expensive
Over the last 3 years, UPS devices have become much less expensive, and offer more protection than before. The common consumer can now buy a UPS for under $150 and still be reasonably protected.
