Have you ever experienced a sudden brown out while you were doing a final paper for school? That would’ve been okay and even understandable, since you cannot control the electricity in the community. But if you haven’t saved your 45 page document that you have been writing for over 6 hours now, that would be a problem. It can be a real hassle to experience a sudden loss of power on your computer at the wrong time. If you don’t want to lose any more information accidentally on your computer due to power cuts, there is a way to avoid these situations.
An Uninterrupted Power Supply or UPS is a device used specifically for computers as a back-up for battery or power whenever there is a power outage. For those who are work with their computers most of the time, or even for those who have several important documents in their computer, this device is a highly recommended product to invest on. Let me tell you why.
1. Reliable power. As long as your UPS battery is still alive and while it is connected to your computer, you can attach the UPS plug to an outlet and it will maintain its charge at all times. If a power cut happens, it will automatically turn to its battery power, keeping your computer on for as long as the battery could last. Of course, it’s not recommended to finish the UPS battery either, but it will allow you to buy time to finish/save the data you need before it shuts off.
2. Allows you time. You won’t have to worry about losing important documents anymore. Because your computer still runs on its battery, you still have ample time to save your documents or transfer it to a laptop for further use. Data can’t always be retrieved once a computer shuts down accidentally. By using a UPS, you can protect your work at all times. Most of us keep important documents in our personal computers, so it is definitely wise to use a UPS for easier access to these documents.
3. Proper shut down. If a computer shuts down abruptly, it could end up rebooting. If this occurs often, it could end up damaging the hard drive, causing even more problems for you. Not to mention unnecessary and inefficient expenses.
4. Cost Efficiency. If you have to buy a new computer every so often because of the sudden power outages that cause rebooting and endangering the hard drive, that would even be a bigger expense than buying a UPS for your computer WITHOUT the headache and hassle.
5. Protection from surges. Meiji UPS also comes with surge protection. In case of surges, your UPS will regulate the output. Meiji UPS has a built-in AVR specifically for this function. As a result, it prevents the spike or surge from damaging the computer connected to the UPS.
