A:AnswerIt really comes down to use after the power goes out. Most UPS that are sold to the consumer are not meant for extended use after the power goes out. They will power your PC/Mac for anywhere from 10 minutes to hour depending upon the battery size and the power load. They are meant to allow the computer owner to gracefully shut the machine down during the failure NOT to continue gaming. From what I've seen from talking with PC gamers over the years that a good high end gamer computer will drain a UPS really, really fast. UPS also smith out power consumption when you don't have a stable power source. Brown outs when the power dips are generally non existent with a UPS and power spikes in a storm can be mitigated. (A direct strike not so much but it really depends on what line got hit. I've had direct strikes with my UPS and the only thing effected was the modem because the strike was on the phone line instead of the power line.)
I guess the short of it is yes in 99% of the time a UPS will protect your PC and allow a safe shut down. They also will more often than not protect from a power surge from an electrical storm. Just remember, the old mantra you get what you pay for. IF you have a 3-6 thousand dollar computer are you willing to gamble with the cheapest and not the best UPS surge protection you can afford?
A:AnswerDepends on what it is powering. Up to 355 minutes for 6 v wifi router, 10 minutes for desktop home computer+router+modem, 66 minutes for notebook computer, 35 minutes for workstation PC according to the specs.
A:AnswerI always make sure this sort of thing is plugged into a surge protector but if you need battery back up, for loss of electrical power, I got the Cyber Power Slim Line Battery Backup. I got the 750 v/375 w for about $45. Up to 355 minutes for a wifi router. Works well and it popped right on the other day when we had an outage (just a couple of minutes but worked as well as the $300 backup on husband's computer. I would highly recommend it.
A:AnswerThe plug is flat, and angles to the lower right (5 o'clock position). I'd say it is about average height for such a plug. It would require about 1 inch/25mm from the wall after it is plugged in, but, of course, you need to have a prong-length of space in addition to the fixture.
