Computers hate it when you yank the power and slam them off. Your game console can't save anything when it happens, either. Don't get me started on working from home during bad weather. All these problems go away when you grab this APC UPS from Amazon (opens in new tab). It's on sale for Cyber Monday for just $199, which is 34% off the normal price.

You'll get 1,500VA / 900W capacity, six battery-powered outlets plus four others that are still surge-protected, protection for your LAN cables, and even co-ax protection because power surges don't discriminate. There are also two USB Type-A ports and one USB C port on the front for easy access.

Peace of mind

A UPS is a good investment and is an integral part of a modern PC or entertainment setup. And if you're looking to expand your smart home during Cyber Monday, don't overlook clean power.
