APC is known for its Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) but this one of its more unique products. It differs from the rest of the models in its lineup with a multi-function portable design. There is a traditional surge protected two-outlet back-up power supply, but it also has three USB ports. One can provide up to 2.4A charging speeds while the other two are 1A. Even better? A removable power bank is capable of recharging “a smartphone five times from 0 to 100 percent.” With the power supply in its docking station, this system is capable of running your modem and router for 2.5 hours in the event of an outage. Rated 4.6/5 stars.
Power at home and on the go. Power outages can happen quite often, ranging from brief interruptions to long-lasting storms. When the power is out, your network cannot connect to the internet. This makes it difficult to get in touch with the outside world for personal or work communication. The BGE50ML features a lithium-ion battery pack that provides hours of critical power to your network during outages. The BGE50ML’s lithium ion battery is also a removable mobile power pack, so you can charge your mobile devices on the go. Stay connected throughout life’s journeys with the Back-UPS Connect BGE50ML.
