expiredKeep the Wi-Fi running during power outages w/ this APC UPS System + USB Power Supply: $80 shipped (Reg. $110+)

Best Buy’s official eBay Store offers the APC Back-UPS (BGE50ML) 84VA Battery Back-Up System w/ USB Power Bank for $79.99 shipped. Also available direct. That’s good for $40 off the original price, down $33 from Amazon, a match of our previous one-day Gold Box mention and the best offer available.

This is one of APC’s more unique Back-UPS offerings. It differs from the rest of the models in its lineup with a multi-function portable design. Aside from offering a traditional surge protected two-outlet back-up power supply, it has three USB ports. One of which is capable of putting out 2.4A, while the other two are 1A. Even better? There is a removable power bank that 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.

Protecting your gear during power outages and sudden surges is paramount. You’ll want to ensure your gear is safe with some quality surge protectors. We’ve rounded up the best options currently available on the market with built-in USB ports. Grab one (or a couple!) to guard against those nasty power spikes.

Update: Amazon also offers a similar BGE90M model (4.4/5 stars) but with more power (70WH vs. 90WH) and 2 USB ports as well as the three outlets for $24.99 Prime shipped. This is especially useful if you also need to keep a phone or tablet running too during an unexpected outage.

Amazon offers the APC Back-UPS Connect Model BGE70 3-outlet Home Network Uninterruptible Power Supply for $19.99 Prime shipped. While it is currently out of stock, you can still order now, lock it in at this price and you won’t be charged until it ships. Today’s deal is a match to previous mention for the lowest we’ve seen for this UPS.

It allows you to keep your cable/DSL/Fiber modem and Wifi router online during a power outage for up to three hours. It has 3 separate outlets, a 5 foot cable and includes a 3-year warranty. Rated 4.4/5 stars from 290 Amazon shoppers.

expiredKeep your Wi-Fi up and running during storms w/ this APC UPS System + USB Power Bank: $90 (Reg. $120)

Update (2/5 12:05pm): OXA USA via Amazon offers the DBPOWER 6-outlet + 6-Port USB Power Strip for $20.79 Prime shipped (Reg. $26) after promo code NKOSXO2J is applied.

Best Buy offers the APC Back-UPS (BGE50ML) 84VA Battery Back-Up System for $89.99 shipped. For comparison, it originally retailed for $140 and still fetches between $110-$130 at many retailers like Amazon. Today’s deal is the first significant discount that we have tracked.

This is the one of the newest releases from APC. It features a unique design from the rest of the models in its lineup. Aside from offering a traditional surge protected two-outlet back-up power supply, it has three USB ports. One of which is capable of putting out 2.4A, while the other two are 1A. Even better? There is a removable power bank that 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. We highly-recommend having one of these under your desk.

Early reviews are positive, much like the rest of APC’s popular back-up systems.

Looking for something a bit more cost-effective? You can get all the peace of mind + USB ports without the power bank for $55. This is the model that I personally use.
