Buying Guide

One UPS per PC

Do not try to have backups for two PCs with one UPS. The battery will be drained within five minutes as these UPS systems are not built for handling more than one PC.

Cost

Simple rule – the more the voltage, the more the battery backup and hence, more the cost. If you want to have a bigger backup, you have to pay up. So take into consideration your work schedules and how much time of backup do you need before purchasing a UPS for your system.

Capacity

Every UPS should serve its main purpose which is to allow you to save your work during electricity cut-off and shut down your PC while protecting your PC from electric surges.

For that, you need to buy a UPS with enough VA. To decide on the minimum VA, use the following formula:

Minimum Volt-Amperes (VA) = 1.6 times the Wattage load

Calculate your PC or other device wattage consumption and use this formula to come up with the optimum VA your UPS should have and choose accordingly from our list.
