UPS Battery Backup - Surge Protect For My Computer Sacrificed Itself
[ Thursday July 28th 2022 at 11:03 am ]

When I got up this morning one of my computer monitors wouldn't turn on as well as other electronic devices plugged into the UPS battery backup - surge protector. My home experienced a power surge in the night. In this instance the UPS battery backup - surge protector sacrificed itself. It "absorbed" the surge in electricity. By doing so my electronics weren't damaged. Thankfully it is under warranty. APC is going to ship a replacement. When it arrives they want the damaged model back. Their warranty process is thorough. The best thing I did was making a video of it not acting right after the power surge and showing this to their technical support department. I am grateful and glad this is covered under warranty.
