In this video I explain how to choose an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to protect your computer and other electronically sensitive devices from damage due to storms or neighbors who like to play with circuit breakers. I go over what to plug into and what to avoid plugging into an UPS. Additionally I use a web calculator that is designed to assist people in choosing the correct UPS based on the equipment’s power requirement.
