  • Answer

    Anything that has a hard disk must be backed up. Power failures are the main cause for corrupted disks

  • Pretty much anything you feel like wanting to use if the power goes out. If you are going to have the computer on the backup battery, might as well include a monitor. Or, not ideal but you can have it charge another UPS if you want to have even longer backup power.

  • Does this work on tv, ref, freezer or other appliances?
