Get serious about backup power with the APC Back-UPS 850VA w/USB ports: $73 shipped

Every now and again, we feature a sub $30 APC/Cyberpower backup solution that will keep your internet (router + Wi-Fi) going when the power goes out. However today only, you’ve got about 4x that power plus some handy USB ports available in the APC Back-UPS 850VA UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector with USB Charging Ports (model BE850M2) for $72.99 shipped.

Over 5,000 Amazon customers gave it 4.4/5 star reviews. You’ve got 6 outlets to work with and this can either go behind the TV set keeping the entertainment going for hours of power outages or under the desk, keeping the desktop going until the power comes back on.

In fact, if you want to use it to keep your router and Wi-Fi going, you’ve got about 6 hours of 10W outage time. That’s almost enough for off grid solar applications! It comes with Powerchute software and is Mac/PC compatible, energy star compliant as well.
