For over 6,000 years, men have sought more power. So why do we overlook battery backups? Surge strips are good, but battery backups are far better for only about $75 each. Imagine if Charlemagne could get that much power for such a low cost.
So the power goes out while you’re working. Everyone’s computer goes dead. It’s dark for 20 minutes during that storm. People start to worry, “Will I lose my new spreadsheet?”
Maybe, if you don’t use the Save button much. Changes made since the last save will likely be lost. Was that an hour ago? Then an hour of work is lost. Was it a new file that hadn’t been named yet? Gone. Ouch.
But not you! Your files are all fine, because your computer is plugged into a small battery backup unit on the floor under your desk, as suggested by your friends at The Brain Mill. So when the power goes out, and other people lose some work, your computer just keeps on running!
When the lights go out and the office becomes nearly pitch black, you’ll have enough time to save your work and power down normally. You won’t be in a panic, wondering “what happened to my spreadsheet?” (Hint: If you do use a battery backup unit, look at the outlets on its face. Only some of them are connected to the battery. The others offer only surge protection.)
