UPS or an uninterruptible power supply is a small device that is connected between your computer and the outlet providing you with power. Its job is simple: to receive power and transmit it to your computer.
UPS has a battery, thus the term “uninterruptible”, that kicks in should your power source be compromised. However, it offers many other valuable benefits including:
1. Protection Against Power Outages

Variances may include.
Spikes – A voltage increase that lasts a very short time may be caused by a lightning strike or fallen power lines.
Surges – These short increases in power last longer than spikes and typically show up when a large device such as a commercial air conditioner shuts off. This causes variance in the power supply in the building and can damage your computer due to heat.
Brownouts – A brownout is basically the opposite of a surge, but can last for longer periods of time. A dip in energy may be caused when a large appliance, such as an air conditioner, is running.
Noise – Interference to the power supply in the form of electronic magnetic interference or radio frequency interference can distort signals. This interference is caused by high-energy equipment such as welders and transmitters.
