My new power company (because I moved, not because the company changed ) seems far less reliable than I would prefer. We get numerous little “hiccups” - enough to shut down all the electronics, but not extended outages.
So I’m looking for a UPS system.
Basically, I have a Mac Mini (soon may be two Mac Minis), an external drive enclosure, and a 32" TV that I use as a monitor. It would be nice to have all of that on the backup power long enough to (a) survive the power hiccup, and/or (b) shut everything down cleanly if it becomes evident the hiccup is going to be more than 5-10 minutes.
I’m guessing that, practically speaking, that puts me in a 1000VA or above model.
And of course it would be nice if the UPS did some variety of power conditioning / brown-out protection as well.
Anybody have any recommendations for a solid battery backup unit?
