A review just published in The Wirecutter ranks one of our most popular uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units as the best choice for power backup of a home network. Product reviewer Mark Smirniotis singled out the CyberPower CP685AVR: “It’s easy to set up, it has some of the most positive user reviews in its class, and it’s the most affordable unit we found.”
This battery backup model has an extensive record of success that caught the attention of reviewers at The Wirecutter. In their words: “To find the best UPS for most people, we looked at the power output, battery capacity, and user comments on 28 of the highest-rated and most-popular UPS options on Amazon.”
Also, the article provides a primer on power protection, how they picked and tested the models, care and maintenance of a UPS, and feature explanations. If don’t you know much about power protection for electronic equipment, it’s well worth your time.
The CP685AVR provides battery backup and surge protection for desktop computers, workstations, networking devices, and home entertainment systems. It features Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) to correct minor power fluctuations without switching to battery power. The CP685AVR comes with a three-year warranty (including coverage of batteries) and a $125,000 Connected Equipment Guarantee.
