It is really a pain working all your guts out and pouring all your knowledge and expertise into a project just to end up losing it because of power outages. Although computers have retrieve options it can not retrieve the entire file that you are working on, only a portion of it and when you start working on it again it is quite impossible to redo it and you end up finishing a totally different one from the original concept that you have which can affect your work performance.
Even worse on and off power supply or intermittent power outages can damage your computer hardware, capacitors may blow and the sudden surge of electricity can damage your computer's processor and chipset leading to expensive repairs and replacements. On top of that files of your hard disc can be corrupted leading to more trouble in your work. Well you can not control power out it's just not within your control and all you can is get mad at the customer service representative of your electric company whatever what you can do is to protect your important files and computer hardware.
An Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) or flywheel backup is an electrical apparatus that supply emergency power to large appliances like computers primarily to protect hardware and files, although the lifespan of the emergency power is only ranging from 10 to 15 minutes those are very important minutes that will allow you to save your project, send important emails, update your clients about the power outage and shut down your computer properly.
UPS can also serve as your voltage regulator, so you are not only protected against power out but also in power surges and fluctuations which can harm your computer and files. The UPS regulates the power supply to ample and stable amount needed by your computer.
You can easily grab a UPS in any communication supply shops local or online or in any hardware though you should be careful in buying one since it deals with electricity and we all know that if it is handled improperly it can be dangerous. Look up online on what brand and models are suited for your intended purpose and also check the background of the communication supply store that you will be purchasing from, they should give you a warranty and replacement period for any factory defects.
If you managed to acquire a good UPS then you can be sure that you will never lose a project ever again and you can avoid unnecessary computer hardware replacement.
