Tripp Lite 1300VA Smart UPS Back Up – $119.99 at Amazon (save $126)
With millions of people out of power on the east coast, they may lose their ability to find out what’s going on with the latest news on the storm. We live in a new era of heavy dependence on electrical products and every home and apartment should have a UPS power supply. Depending on the size you choose, it can recharge your mobile devices over 20 times which will help you stay in contact with loved ones and media outlets in times of emergency. Or it can help power CPAPs for those with sleep apnea.
Even if you have a generator, that power can sometimes overload equipment in your house. This battery accepts generator power and converts it into stable energy for major appliances, while also protecting your most expensive devices from shortages from lightning strikes.
At $119.99, it’s an investment you need to make if you haven’t already. I have two in my house, and a few years back San Diego saw a citywide blackout. Cellular networks jammed up, but my home Wi-Fi stayed on the entire time allowing me full access to the internet because of this UPS. I could contact my parents over Wi-Fi and figure out what was going on because my router stayed powered.
