Today only, Amazon is offering up this 330 watt/550-volt APC UPS for just $42, or about $10-$15 less than its usual price.

If you use a desktop computer, and you’ve ever lost work due to a brief power outage, this will of course keep your machine running without any interruption. But even if you only use laptops and mobile devices at home, this can still power your router and modem to keep you connected, or you could even plug in a TV to pass the time until the lights come back on. The battery’s runtime will vary considerably based on what’s plugged in, but most reviewers seem to indicate that their PCs can run for 30-60 minutes without power.


Just note, this is a Gold Box deal, meaning this price is only available today, or until sold out. [APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet UPS, $42]
