Computer battery backup recs
Any recommendations for a battery backup for my computer?

I'm just looking for something that will keep the computer on during a power outage long enough to save any work and power down/prevent frying the hard drive.

i bought 2 that were on slickdeals in the last week or two....i have one for each bedroom, the living room, and IT equipment area...i usually go with APC or CyberPower. Is it going to be for single PC and monitors? if so then a 400-450VA one will be fine. Depends on how much you feel like spending.

600VA in AMazon for $62

Our whole building is filled with these and I am pretty amazed with the failure rate on them..

Every time we have a power outage someone is telling me theirs no longer works

Interesting....do you know how long they’ve been in service? In previous IT ops positions we budgeted for replacing UPSs every 3yrs, so planned for doing 1/3 of them every year.

And OP is using for home...
