Thanksgiving tech support isn’t complete without a $30 backup APC UPS to save the Internet!

We’re all doing the upgrades/virus removal during Thanksgiving but here’s a free piece of advice: Grab a cheap $29.99 APC UPS at your local Office Max/Depot (in store only). This keeps the computer/internet/router on during those common quick power outages and reduces phone calls to tech support (you).

APC Stories September 26, 2016

If you depend on your Internet and home wireless network (who doesn’t?!) you need to keep it up during a power outage, however long. APC, the leader is battery backup and surge protection, has some great deals in their Gold Box today.

If you need backup power to your desktop or more importantly your Cable/DSL/Fiber Modem and Wifi router,  the APC Battery Backup & Surge Protector (BE350G) – 350VA 6-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is $29.99 shipped. This is easily the lowest this gets with shipping and will keep your router and wireless network up during a power outage for over an hour (depending on power draw of your modem and router).

If you need to back up more devices and/or over a longer period of time, there is a 600VA version with 7 outlets and a USB charging port for $46.99, still a great deal. The big boy here is a 10-outlet 750VA is $60 shipped.

APC also offers a Dual USB power 5,000mAh pack for phones and tablets for $11.99 shipped. This is an average price for Cheap Chinese knockoffs but this has the APC name and warranty behind it

Finally, it is time to up your surge protector game with a rugged Workbench styled 8 outlet protection for $10.99 (make sure to order from Amazon using this link – it is backordered a week already) and a monster 11 outlet w/telephone and coax for $13.50. Both of these are no brainers if you need more protected outlets in the house or garage/barn.
