We've compared uninterruptible power supplies from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.
There are few things tech-lovers fear more than a blackout. Losing power to your TV, your computer, your fridge and practically everything else modern society runs on is more than a minor inconvenience, especially if you're in the middle of fixing dinner or studying for a critical exam or meeting at work the following day.
Thankfully, modern technology provides a solution for its own problem: the uninterruptible power supply, commonly known as a UPS. Functioning like a super-charged battery, a UPS will continue to provide electricity to any device plugged into it in the event of a blackout, ensuring you can wrap up your cooking or save the vital documents you're working on. Different UPSs are capable of providing anywhere from a couple of minutes' worth of power up to a full hour, with the latter especially handy for small businesses that can't afford the downtime.
To help you choose from the many UPSs on the market, we've rounded up some of the most popular below, comparing their prices from Australia's biggest tech retailers to ensure you get a good deal.
