Is this deal for me?

This APC UPS 125VA battery backup and surge protector is down to $19.99 at Newegg. That's $10 off the regular price and a match of its lowest price ever.

An uninterruptible power supply guarantees protection from power surges or lightning strikes. APC is so sure it'll keep your equipment safe there's a lifetime equipment protection policy where APC will replace properly connected equipment that is damaged by a power surge.

The UPS also acts as a backup battery in case the power completely goes out. How long the battery lasts depends on how much stuff you've got plugged in, but it is powerful enough that even if your most powerful electronics are plugged in, like a desktop computer, you should get at least enough time to save everything you're working on and shut down safely. If you aren't drawing too much power, the battery could last much longer.

This device has three spaced outlets. It also has an automatic self-test to determine when the battery might be failing and will let you know with notifications when that's going to happen. Nothing worse than a battery backup that fails when you need it most, but luckily the battery is easy to replace. The system uses audible alarms to let you know when there's a change in power or when a component might be failing.

Users on Amazon give this UPS 4.3 stars based on more than 670 reviews.


  • What makes this deal worth considering? - This is a match of the lowest price, and beats any recent deal we've seen on it by atleast $2.
  • Things to know before you buy! - There are actually a ton of small features that this unit does well, and being able to safely shut down your stuff when you loose power is much better than having it just shut itself off.
