With the power outages affecting our students, faculty, and staff, the IS team recommends using an Uninterruptable Power Supply, UPS, to protect your electronics and keep you working.
A UPS is a battery backup for your electronics. Depending on the size of the UPS, they can provide a few extra minutes of power to safely turn off your computer or a few extra hours to keep working on your project.
No matter the battery size, please purchase one with Automatic Volt Regulation, AVR. This will protect your electronics from voltage issues, like brownouts, and will keep the UPS battery healthy.
Please contact the IS team at 310-506-7425 if you have any questions.
