expiredProtect your gear! Cyberpower 1500VA 10-outlet UPS + Surge Protector w/ 2 USB-ports: $137 shipped ($205 value)

B&H offers the CyberPower 1500VA/900W Sinewave UPS System with 10-outlets plus an extra wall surge protector w/ USB ports for $136.95 shipped. For comparison, it originally retailed for $215 and still fetches around $190 at Amazon (UPS only). This deal is an all-time low when the value of the surge protector is added in.

This UPS system has everything needed to protect your valuable electronics during thunderstorms or power outages. There are ten surge-protected outlets, five of which have access to the built-in battery that provides enough time to safely turn off your gear in the event of a storm. A built-in LCD displays how much time remains, battery health and more. It ships with a three-year warranty. Rated 4.6/5 stars by 1,866 Amazon customers.

B&H includes a Cyberpower three-outlet surge protector with dual-USB ports, as well. It typically sells for around $13 at Amazon. It offers 2.1A charging speeds combined across both ports. Rated 4.2/5 stars.

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.
